Gasoline price hike biggest since 2009

UPI -- An average U.S. monthly jump of 47 cents a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline is the biggest in nearly four years, and much earlier than usual, AAA says.

Retail gas prices have climbed 34 days in a row, the motor club federation said. An average gallon of regular unleaded cost about $3.30 a month ago, but it stood at $3.77 nationwide Wednesday, the club said.

The 47-cent increase translates to a hike of nearly 14 percent -- the most dramatic increase since June 2009.

On Tuesday, when the price increase was 44 cents in 33 days, AAA said the trend was "the longest streak since the price increased 44 cents over 44 days March 22-May 5, 2011."

You will have no reason to vote repub in 2016, GasHunterIA, because the dems will still have Bendover Boehner's and Mealy-Mouthed McConnell's bunch by their itsy-bitsy teenie-tiny gonads.

We need to build more refineries. I still say the military should use the closed down bases to build a couple of refineries for their jet fuel and gas. That would definately bring the oil industry back to reality.

The jump of gas prices helps the `oilbarons` and the specdevils but not the consumers and the economy. When will the people rebel and demand control of the greedy groups!!!!!!!!!

There is no NEED for gas price increases just GREED. If I cut back any more I'll be putting gas back into the pump.

I wonder how high fuel prices will reach because of the hold back on cheap Canadian oil? The XL pipeline hold back is the reason why big oil can pick your pocket and the environmentalist helping them and they have Washington in their back pockets.

If, and it is a really big "IF", we could just get 75% of the motoring public to STOP buying gas for two or three days, watch the price drop!

This is the third year in a row gas prices increased in January and February
in 2012 and 2011 gas prices dropped dramatically in APril and May
Hope April 2013 follows the pattern

After reading through all the comments and bitches, would it not be better to send our concerns directly to : emailthepresident.com. Lets all collectively send our opinions directly to Mr.Obama. It has to help, right ?
