The average price for gasoline increased nearly 10 cents to $3.603 per gallon. This is up over 63 cents from a year ago at this time.
So what does this mean to consumers? Consider this "fuel vs. food" fact, filling up with 18 gallons for a year at 63 cents more per gallon is $590. That's 150 gallons of milk or 150 boxes of corn flakes or over 150 pounds of ground beef. The rising price of fuel means less money, less food and essentials for millions of hard working Americans.
Diesel prices were up as well, rising over 3 cents to $4.177 per gallon, up an astonishing $1.366 from last year.
