Shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Gasoline prices have risen in April and May nearly every year in recent memory. I've speculated that much of the increase can be attributed to short-term supply disruptions and refinery adjustments as the EPA-mandated summer fuel blends are introduced.
I seem to remember posting this same point for at least the last four or five years.

Question? Why, if the summer blend is better for the environment, is there any need for a different blend in the other months of the year? I have a noticable increase in fuel efficiency with the summer blend over the winter blend. Having no need for a difference in blends might also drop the price.
