Barring a steep drop in crude prices, U.S. motorists can expect to see gas prices exceeding $3 per gallon, if they are not seeing such prices already, according to a new survey of filling stations.
The latest Lundberg Survey of cities in the continental United States was conducted Friday. It showed the national average price for a gallon of self-serve unleaded gasoline at $2.91, an increase of 3.9 cents from the last survey two weeks earlier, survey publisher Trilby Lundberg said.

Everyone should be happy we have such a sensitive and shrewd person in the office of POTUS.
Already at $3 here in Pittsburgh. The Fed wanted more inflation...here it comes.
Uh, in Maine we’ve had that for at least a week.
gas prices have doubled since Obama took the office of king!!!!!
Skyrocketing energy prices are necessarily part of Obama’s plan....
been over $3 for about a month here in NY.
PA about the same prices...Joisey is Joisey and they have the refineries there and it was still in the ‘$2.80 something’ range there last week when I rode on I 80.
the election is over and all bets are off for anything good for the next 2 years....its agenda time for the Marxist POSOTUS.
I paid 3.15 for regular today.
The Kenyan is pushing America deeper into recession with his anti oil agenda. This is a repeat of the Pelosi freeze in 2007 that got us into the recession in the first place.
Not to forget to mention QE2 inflating the dollar.
When Bush was president gas prices used to climb every time there was a hurricane forecast
Now look at what has happened in the past 2 years????
“Someone” has been artifically covering bambi’s butt for a long time. That plus the world depression.
Now that the GOP is back in Congress, watch for the puppet-master’s gloves to come off in efforts to crash our economy again and blame Boehner and company
Chinese economic growth and appetite for energy, and the weakening US dollar will also have an inevitable outcome
$3.10 in MA this morning.
$3.20 in CT over Thanksgiving.
It is $2.99 (8) in Maryland. Isn’t this a swell Christmas gift from O?
I just noticed gas around me ranges anywhere from $3 to $3.20 per gallon. And it seems like the price shot up pretty quickly. This could just be inflation due to the Fed printing money too, which we all know is coming.
It’s been $3 here for a few months. Upstate NY
All ready here in Perry Hall MD
Ummm, it’s already $3.19 here in my little Upstate NY neck of the woods...
With U.S. interest rates at or near historic lows, massive Federal budget deficits as far as the eye can see into the future, and Ben Bernanke already talking about a possible third round of Federal Reserve purchases of U.S. Treasury debt, I think it's a safe bet that the U.S. dollar isn't going to stop sliding into the toilet anytime soon.
Ummm.. It’s already $3.19 here in upstate NY.
$2.94-2.99 here in Minnesota already.
Motorists could see $3 gas at pumps by Christmas
Lundberg Survey group needs to get out more.......
Filled up in TX this morning at $2.69/gal.
Filled up the truck at $2.74 Saturday.
It’s been $2.99 here in IL for about a month now.
Last Friday morning went to meeting with client. Running late and had enough gas so decided to wait until I returned to fill up. Big mistake. Three hours later it was $2.75.
I paid $3.19/gal for gasoline yesterday.
$2.679 in Aiken County, SC. SC has a very low state gasoline tax.
So far the fall of the dollar has been moderated because the euro has fallen more. This has caused crude oil prices to not rise as fast as otherwise. Much worse is yet to come I fear as the dollar collapse continues and dumbo, frodo and bernyakme continue to print money.
$2.64/9 in mid-Missouri.
Saudi Aramco, the oil company of Saudi Arabia can get a barrel of oil out of the ground and on a ship for $2 a barrel.
Remember that the next time you look at the commodity price. Oil should NOT be on the commodities market, it is a matter of national security.
You beat me to it....I was gonna post the same :-)
In the city, it’s $3.09 for regular, $3.29 for premium. Just ridiculous.
Oops..Forgot to mention that was near Atlanta, GA.
“Motorists could see $3 gas at pumps by Christmas”
Motorists could see $4 gas at pumps by Christmas. Fixed it!
The dictator seems to be planning a lifetime term is my guess. And the blind of the left need to wake up.
Type II heating oil is $3.21 a gallon @ 100 gallons.
$3.05 per gallon at my local station in the Boston area. Of course, with my Stop & Shop card, it was $.20 a gallon cheaper.
First thing I thought when the “high gas prices” story came out...B.O. stops drilling. Brain damage.
Already $3 in south Florida too.
Yet prices are still below what they were under W.
The obamanation administration needs to raise gas prices so people will be forced to buy expensive obamamotor’s tuna cans with wheels cars. He would run the prices up to 10 dollars a gallon today if he could; the man is Hugo Chavez and is working to destroy the people every day.
$3.19 in our neck of the woods also. We might be neighbors.
“the single biggest factor in U.S. oil prices has been the value of the U.S. dollar relative to other major currencies.”
But this country has the power to mitigate at least somewhat by offshore drilling and prioritizing the drilling and usage of our natural gas industry(which is what every other country on the face of the earth would do for wealth and jobs creation).
Instead, we get bogus schemes like ethanol and windfarming that will NEVER do anything but make a few libs feel happy and pad the pockets of ADM and GE.
$3.11 in West Suburban Chicago area.
Seems to be a lot of regional disparity. It’s been $2.50ish here in CO for quite a while.
Already $3 here in Orlando.
Do you mean it’s going to go down?
We pay $3.39 a gallon here.
Right. But something to keep in mind here is that if the U.S. dollar continues to slide (as I expect it to), then we could very well find ourselves in a situation where we extract more oil right here in the U.S. — and find ourselves exporting much of it to other parts of the world!
Gee, the guy on the radio news said last Friday that we’d see a 15 cent drop by Jan 1. Somebody’s wrong.
Prices here in Memphis are up 10 cents since last week. Some places approaching $2.85 already.
You forget, though, that part of the plan is to kill US production to bring the rest of the world to economic parity with us. Conditions may be ripe for us to uncap some wells, but Obama's Social Justice demands we not use that capacity.
Not for lack of trying
