GAS PROJECTED TO TOP $3 NATIONWIDE BY CHRISTMAS

By Andrew Ganz

Crude oil is up to prices not seen in three years, leading analysts to suggest that $3 per gallon gasoline is just around the corner for every driver in the United States – although many states are already well above that point.

Oil closed yesterday at $90 per barrel, the highest since 2008′s spike that eventually drove prices up to $145 per barrel. In June of 2008, the national average topped $4 per gallon, but the pain at the pump quickly subsided to around $1.65 in January of 2009.

Currently, the national average is around $2.95 per gallon, but many states – including California, New York and Washington – are already well above $3 per gallon average. Colorado continues to offer the cheapest gas to drivers, at $2.67 on average, while Wyoming, Utah, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Missouri are not substantially above average.

I don't remember the last time I saw it below $3.30 let alone $3.00.

I've been paying in the $3.45+ range for quite some time now.

I have no idea what gas is per gallon around here...I always seem to fill up every week at the same station, and it's always about $40-45.

Here, it's gone up by at least a quarter in the past three weeks. Definitely noticeable.

I wouldn't be surprised.

A few months ago gas was $2.78 for unleaded, now the cheapest is $3.09. I paid $3.29 for midgrade. It's gone up, but not to the point where it's noticeable...I was expecing it to cost more to fill up than it did yesterday, so that's nice.

For those of you with Android phones, there is an app called GasBuddy that will let you scan the area for the cheapest fuel prices. It works off the GPS in your phone.

Let's see:

120.4 a liter.

One gallon = 3.78541178 liter's.

120.4 x 3.78541178

= 455.763578

= $4.56 Canadian a gallon

= $4.52 USD

= Cry me a river, America. :P
