Gas prices go up EVER Summer.......every one of them. It's the peak portion of the year, always has been, always will be, so the price of gas will always go up during the Summer. Someone always starts a thread about it like it's breaking news, lol.

With gas hitting 3.19 everywhere around me yesterday, I am hoping it will get me a better price on a boat this winter. I think I can hande a 20pct increase in my fuel bill this summer. No big deal

I will still boat as much just may not do as many long runs. Luckily where we boat all the fun stuff is just a few miles.

idk who your source is but gas prices will not hit the aforementioned $4.50...it would simply put us into a depression like previously stated...people are barely holding on right now. as prices rise the demand will reduce thus prices will steady around 3.50 to 3.75. the government simply cannot put the american people in a situation like this...tax cuts on gas might even be a solution.

I somewhat agree with this statement as consumer confidense is strongly related to fuel prices. On the other hand all the experts are saying that oil will stay between 60 and $100 a barrel over then next 5 years

What do they get for so-called "free" that we don't by paying that higher price.
