I'm sure some of our European readers simmer with envy that gas is so cheap (comparatively) in America, but for many Americans the current prices look quite pricey. According to AAA
, gas prices
are about as high today as they've been in the last twelve months, which doesn't really bode well for the upcoming summer months, historically a time of higher gas prices. I wonder how people who still drive gas guzzlers are feeling about another summer of $50+ fill ups.
The national average for gas prices in America today was $2.977, more than a penny higher than yesterday. A year ago we were looking at $2.92, and the highest price in the last twelve months was $3.03. And, based on the trend we see in the graph, we can expect average gas prices to rise by about 9-10 more cents in the next month or so. Who's up for a bike ride?
