Gas prices see biggest jump of the year

CNN -- (CNN) -- Gas prices jumped 18 cents over the past two weeks, the biggest jump of the year, according to a survey published Sunday.

The average cost of a gallon of regular is $3.69 nationwide, the Lundberg Survey found.

That's nearly 8 cents higher than a year ago, but still 28 cents lower than it was in April of this year.

"Higher crude oil prices, higher corn-based ethanol prices, plus a spate of refinery and pipeline problems around the country combined" are behind the spike, said publisher Trilby Lundberg.

The U.S. drought is pushing up prices for all corn-based products.

It's impossible to predict what will happen with gas prices in the near future, Lundberg said. "The refinery and pipeline issues that have added to the price rise are certainly temporary in nature.

Gas prices see bigggest price jump and have gone up 10 cents every day, Big Oil can raise the price of fuel – because they can. Big oil is a monopoly so we pay more, more, more.
Big Oil continues to sell fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices, there will be NO price reduction for the cost of fuel or natural gas IN the US. 'Coming out of the closet' Barry will support natural gas and oil production for sale on the world market to pay for his ‘spending gone wild’ addiction and receive the huge federal tax income from oil. Barry's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the good paying jobs are Not there. Barry's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continues to be down – no matter how smoooooth talking Barry spins those numbers and he can spin them very well! People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! Speculators, manipulators and the banks continue to unfairly and unjustly make the driving public pay higher prices at the pump for their personal benefit.
How much will gas prices go up and they will rise, the trend is always up with fuel prices. The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon, $3 to $3.50/gallon is Not the new low!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

This is WRONG!

There is NOT a gas shortage. There are too many excuses to raise the cost to us.

Big oil CEO's should be arrested for rape & murder. They are screwing us to death.

Artifically raised by speculators and oil executives who cause rumors & limit supply unnaturally. Ethanol is still much cheaper than oil but that market still needs development.

The blenders (big oil Companies) should switch over to Sugar Cane based ethanol at 35% cheaper than Corn based Ethanol which would significantly lower the cost of gas and diesel and pass those savings on to customers (us). The corn farmers can shift back to growing corn for people and animals to eat in abundance thereby lowering the price of corn based food.

I'm not sure about you but all my costs have gone up. Taxes, food, clothing, utilities, maybe some electronics have gone down but I am not buying them everyday. I don't like paying more for fuel but I still believe it is a good price and I would rather have what I need at $4+ than have none at $1.50.
