Gas up nearly 10 cents a gallon


November 9- Average retail gasoline prices in Georgia have risen 9.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.13/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,883 gas outlets in Georgia. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.22/g, according to gasoline price website

Including the change in gas prices in Georgia during the past week, prices yesterday were 70.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 2.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 10.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 70.5 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"Motorists were hit with rising gas prices in 33 of the nation's 50 states, catching up with recent increases in crude oil prices, while the Midwest, stung from increases from the previous week, saw relief," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy senior petroleum analyst.

"While we'll see lower gasoline prices to return to much of the country in the weeks ahead, these types of isolated blips in gasoline prices do occasionally happen during times when crude oil prices are volatile. With recent Fed comments about raising interest rates propelling markets, don't be surprised if we see occasional small gas prices increases followed by decreases, leading to a lower gasoline prices in time for the holidays," DeHaan said.

Yeah, when oil prices rise, these local yocal gas retailers sure are quick to raise prices. But when oil falls the same proportion, they are very, very slow to lower gas prices, even just a few pennies. Blame our polititians, both state and federal for this issue, ladies and gentlemen. No back bone on any of them. All they care about are the lobbyist millions coming their way. Who cares about John and Jane public, right?

We don't pay enough at the pump. The overall effects of gas powered machines are never figured in. Climate change, medical expenses for people in wrecks, poor health as everyone is too fat to walk anywhere. These costs are all being pushed on to our children and grandchildren. If gas were about $9 per gallon, we'd all be better off.
America is far too dependent on cars. We must ween ourselves off the need to drive every-freaking where.
