$4 Gas a Reality for Many Americans

March 28, 2012

$4/gallon for gas? If only I could get it that cheap!!! I paid $4.59 just this morning in the Silicon Valley…

Sadly, the price of an average gallon of regular gas surpassed the $3.90 mark yesterday, which has the price of gas within 10 cents of the $4 threshold. Crazy!

From CNN Money:

The current price compares to just below $3.70 a month ago, and just below $3.59 a year ago.

Gasoline averages more than $4 a gallon in 10 states and the District of Columbia. At $4.55 a gallon, Hawaii has the nation’s highest pump price.

Prices are less than a nickel away from $4 a gallon in Nevada and Wisconsin.

Wyoming has the nation’s lowest gas prices, averaging nearly $3.51 a gallon.

Gas Prices Drop 15 Cents Over Past Two Weeks

August 26, 2008

Finally, some good news about gas prices in the US. A national survey shows gas prices have dropped 15 cents a gallon in the last two weeks. According to the Lundberg Survey of 7,000 gas stations nationwide, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline at self-serve stations was $3.70 Friday. Mid-grade came in at $3.83 and premium was listed as $3.95.

From the Associated Press:

The California average was $3.94, down 16 cents from two weeks ago.

Gas was cheapest in St. Louis, Mo., at $3.37 for a gallon of regular. It was most expensive in Anchorage, Alaksa, at $4.34.

Despite the drop, gas nationally was almost 95 cents higher than a year ago.

Prices so far this summer peaked July 11 at $4.11 for a gallon for regular.

Living in San Jose, California, I have survived some of the highest prices in the nation. It has been obvious, recently, that prices are coming down. Now, let’s just hope that we can get back closer to that $3.00/gallon number that seems so far away! Thoughts?
