The nationwide average for regular gas is now $4.32 a gallon, according to AAA. Just yesterday it was $4.25. In just a few days gasoline has eclipsed the highest price ever recorded by 20¢. The previous record was $4.11 in July 2008. Unfortunately, there is no end in sight. Anecdotally, my neighborhood gas station went up 75¢/gal in just three days and is now $4.95.
Nationally, Diesel prices are also at record highs, with the average cost at $5.06 a gallon, up almost twenty cents overnight from Wednesday to Thursday. This will increase transportation costs for all goods being delivered. The speed of the current rate of increase is very troublesome.
