Here we go again, folks. The average national price of gasoline rose nearly 12 cents in the past three weeks. This marks the first price hike after six months of steady decreases and we loved it. I noticed yesterday, the gasoline in our little town jumped up 10 cents a gallon.
On Friday, the average price of regular gasoline was $1.78 a gallon. That was according to the oil industry analyst Trilby Lundberg. The price of mid-grade was $1.91 a gallon and the price of premium was $2.02 a gallon. This increase was the first since July 11, when the average national price peaked at $4.11 a gallon. I sure hope it never goes back to that again. It really hurt the average person's budget.
