If you plot a graph of gasoline prices over the course of every year since the mid-2000s you'll find a similar pattern almost without exception. Fuel prices rise dramatically in April and May, then fall again in October and November. This is partially due to higher auto usage during the summer months, but also due to the higher refining costs associated with the ethanol mandate that's in place during the summer.
This is why a comparison of fuel prices from the same week or month from one year to the next tells us more than a comparison from week to week or month to month.

As the Fedral Reserve Ponzi scheme winds down, $3.80 will seem like a bargain.

(Brutal acts of commission and yawning acts of omission both strengthen the hand of the devil.)
I am convinced we are being conditioned to accept higher gas prices. If the prices simply shot up to $10 per gallon there would be riots but by jumping the prices up by .80 and then down by .30 we rejoice at the lower prices. And on and on it goes.

This story is as predictable as the media having Obama winning the first debate even though the debate has not taken place yet.Romney will win because a sizeable majority NOW know that the media lies throgh their teeth.
November 6 will be the true poll.It will be a great day.
That will be the day the Lord has made and let us then rejoice and be glad.

(It was $1.80 when Obama took office)
The average price of gasoline per gallon when Bush took office in was $1.60 and was $4.12 just before he left office.
The average price of gasoline per gallon hovered between $1.00 and $1.20 for 20 years before Bush took office, and has been rising steadily ever since.
True, it did drop dramatically to $1.84 per gallon just before Obama took office and then began to rise again all through his term, but the fact remains that under both Bush and Obama we have paid more for gasoline then we had for the previous 20 years.

I paid $3.41 at WALMART and there is a Valero just down the street that is $3.45 just down the road. Most in the area are at or near $3.79.
