The average cost of a gallon of gasoline in the United States is $3.39, a gain of almost 3.5 cents over the last two weeks.
The oil companies, it seems, are making sure drivers have a big lump of coal in their stockings, at least when they fill up their cars.
That gas prices haven’t risen is rather atypical, since crude oil is the main component of the cost of a gallon of gas.
Gasoline prices could be another area of surprise. We sure hope so, because we’re loving taking advantage of the lower prices to travel.
