Skip to comments.July Fourth gas prices to be highest since 2008

The recent spike in gas prices will make the July 4 holiday weekend the most expensive for drivers since 2008.
According to USA Today, prices will average $3.68 a gallon for regular-grade gas, up 17 cents from last year. That is still below the record price of $4.11 at the pump just after July 4, 2008.
The continuing fears over the political unrest in Iraq have seen crude oil prices rising, causing an unseasonably early summer run-up on retail gas prices, the paper reports.

Woo hoo! Thanks Barry! You da man! You Marxist freeloaders sure make great capitalists!
But it’s still W’s fault, right?

Gas was like $1.89 when 0bozo took over.
And today people would rejoice if it fell beneath $3....

Prices started to rise here but then fell. I filled up at $3.41 yesterday. It was nearly twenty cents more a week ago. Not that $3.41 is cheap by any means.
“That is still below the record price of $4.11 at the pump just after July 4, 2008.”
Sorry, but here in California (leading the country as it were), gas prices are already above $4.11 in some locales. But then again, we have that “special gasoline” that costs more because it has some “special ingredients” to make it burn cleaner, not!
Blame the Commie pink fag which occupies the WH and his Fed Reserve brethren. The US demand for oil is down. This is another ‘Rat manipulated market.
One time when I was home the local Indian reservation was selling gas for $1.47 (up the road at a Shell station it was a penny more) and Washington has the highest gas tax in the nation.
This can actually be good for local economies. Spending less on gas, less time in the car, and more time enjoying things closer to home helps the economy. It helps neighborhoods.
It was actually $3.30 near me yesterday.
go just 10 miles south, and it’s $3.84
