Gas Prices Surge Upward

gasoline prices

Hang onto your gas-caps, prices are on their way up again.  Gasoline prices nationally rose over the past month by 15¢ according to AAA Auto Club’s Fuel Gauge Report, but local prices were slow to reflect that increase.  According to the auto club, the current average price for a gallon of unleaded regular is $3.48 per gallon with the lowest prices to be found through the southern states and the highest prices on the West Coast.  Wyoming has bumped up to an average of 3.46 per gallon of regular and prices in Jackson Hole are now beginning to reflect the rising prices as well.  The average of those stations surveyed by Motor Trend here is now $3.47 and rising, while across the pass in Teton Valley, the average is $3.52.  The reason for the increase experts say is largely an increase in the futures market for a barrel of crude, now more than $90.  Add to that, say energy analysts, some of the increase is also linked to the severe drought since about 10% of the gasoline at the pumps contain ethanol which is distilled from corn.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
