The price of gas
Anyone notice anything about the price of gas lately? I have. So has AAA:
|Week Ago Avg.||$2.424||$2.575||$2.666||$2.324||$1.986||$2.613|
|Month Ago Avg.||$2.061||$2.189||$2.267||$2.254||$1.766||$2.324|
|Year Ago Avg.||$3.975||$4.221||$4.372||$4.791||$3.316||$4.364|
It’s going up again. In fact, in 30 days, it’s gone up about 25%. That’s a pretty big jump if you ask me. Seems gas jumping 25% in 30 days would be news to some. It’s not to CNN. MSNBC does mention it, but is quick to point out that it was more expensive a year ago. Running for office, Obama talked about the price of gas and what he would do about it when elected. What has happened since he’s taken office is the retail price of gas has increased 42%. While the price of gas was “killing people” when he ran, it’s apparently not now that he’s elected. And, if you think it’s an issue now, the “press” will quickly remind you that you have no reason to complain now, it was more expensive sometime in the past and therefore all is good now.
And no one seems to care.
