This little clip is from news.aol.com. Don't worry folks, higher gas prices are coming again.
"Retail gas prices rose Friday for the first time in 43 days as analysts warned that a direct hit on Gulf energy infrastructure could send pump
prices hurtling toward $5 a gallon. Crude oil prices ended slightly lower in a volatile session as some traders feared supply disruptions and others
bet the government will release supplies from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve."
Prices could skyrocket toward $5 a gallon? That's over a $1 dollar leap. The truth seems to be, the price is being inched up bit by bit, no matter
what. It's just that a storm seems like a convenient way to just make a big leap in price. Next thing you know $4.50 is the norm for a gallon of
gas, no storm required. And even though the storm is gone, I bet it wouldn't go below $4 anymore.
I don't plan on being a poor man the rest of my life, or depend on oil forever, and worry about fuel prices. But, still, this is enough.
