Gas Prices Start Moving Higher Again

Consumer Affairs -- After weeks of steady declines, the retail price of gasoline began moving higher this week. Whether this is a temporary or long-term trend remains to be seen.

The national average price of self-serve regular today is $3.358 per gallon, up from $3.353 last Friday, according to AAA's Fuel Gauge Survey. Gas prices are still 21 cents a gallon lower than they were a month ago.

Short-term they will go back down. Long term Up, Up. Obama pushing for higher MPG standards is a good thing now and for future generations.

They wanted us to get use to around $3.00 gas before they rise to $4.00.

Most of the metro Atlanta stations that increased prices went up about 12 to 15 cents a couple of days ago. Then some went up again another 6 cents yesterday.

Did anyone expect different?

Gas prices are still higher than they were this past December, and they were higher a couple of days ago before the big oil companies started their Iran missiles rumors - again.

The price drops were a teaser. No we go back to paying the "new" lower regular price.

You had to expect that. More people started to drive, and make vacation plans.

What you were expecting gas to get to a "reasonable' price?
