It's $3.39 here. So glad I never drive, except that I'm going to have to start commuting to my teaching job 3 days a week this summer
Seriously happy that I live in a place where I can take the bus or the El or ride my bike everywhere I need to be. And I never thought I'd say this, but thank goodness for old lady grocery carts so I can walk to the grocery store!
It won't keep rising, though. The gas prices are artificial, actually, meaning they're not really controlled directly by supply and demand, they're controlled by foreign countries and the cartel and Big Oil. They released a report last week in which crude oil supplies are fine, normal, but the refined oil supply is slightly down, so they can artifically raise the prices AND justify it in the mind of most clueless Americans. Also, places like Saudi Arabia like to slowly riase the prices until we start complaning and claiming that we're going to become energy-independent (yeah...right), then they drop the prices, keep up quiet for awhile, then raise them again.
So no, they won't keep rising. At least not consistently. And we'll keep being duped by Oil Execs and the Mideast Royalty they're figuratively in bed with.
