Today has an article on the possibility that gas prices may have plateaued. I’m skeptical, but hoping all the same they are right. I found this article while reading through some Jalopnik articles, and coming across this:
It’s also an interesting read. Buried deep in that article is a link to a calculator. The Cheapest Gas in Your Area. It’s something I’ve been finding myself doing a lot lately. Pull out the iPod, and the GasBuddy App. Look for the cheapest local prices, and hope that something good close by comes up. Now I don’t have to do the math in my head.
But even the Spike Line hasn’t liked the rising prices. I’ve not caught the last 2 or 3 spikes before they happened. These high gas prices have really hurt our budget, although I am lucky to have two Saturns that get 30+mpg, so it may not be as bad as others have it. There seems to be not a whole lot we can do but wait it out. Keep with us, we will do what we can to report when prices are rising for you.
