Everyone is feeling the pain of the high gas prices.
Check it out:
With the Fourth of July holiday weekend starting, the national average price for retail gasoline is $3.70 per gallon (gal). This is up about 4 cents/gal over the last six weeks and 21 cents/gal higher than last year at this time, but well below the spring price peaks reached in each of the previous three years. Most of the recent price increase is attributable to rising crude oil prices since unrest began in Iraq last month. However, there is significant regional variation in gasoline prices (Figure 1), with PADD 2 (the Midwest) having seen significant fluctuation over the past month.
