Gas Prices Not Dropping Anytime Soon

Dust off that bike or invest in a bus pass, gas prices will jump 40% for the summer driving season compared to 2010, according to federal projections released Tuesday.

Retail prices for a gallon of regular-grade gasoline will average $3.86 from April through September, up from $2.76 for the same period last year, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the statistics arm of the Energy Department.

The average U.S. household's vehicle fueling costs will be about $825 greater this year than last year, hitting $3,360 in 2011, according to EIA.

The catalyst for the increase, according to EIA, will be continuing strength in worldwide liquid fuels consumption.

This is one of the major problems of many countries. Gas price is uncontrollable.

Yeah, I think our government has used politics to keep the prices down in this country and now as we starting to pay what other countries have been paying all along.

Don't start and stop engine needlessly. Idling your engine for one minute consumes the gas amount equivalent to when you start the engine.

A Ducane natural gas grill makes it simpler to grill on the fly. With propane gasoline grills, if your propane tank runs out during grilling, you should run to the store for a alternative tank, except you occur to keep a spare, filled tank on hand.
