US – Gas prices continue to climb rising another 1.8 cents across the county according to Gasbuddy.com
US Average of gas is 3.41 per gallon this week across the country, and diesel has risen 1.7 cents and stands at 3.63 per gallon across the county. With Holiday travel to start in the near future and oil prices still over 80 dollars a barrel we should see more increase in gas before the end of the year.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Sunday, that President Biden should tap the emergency petroleum reserves to lower rising gasoline prices as Americans go into the holiday season. But, this may just be a short-term effect for better gas prices and would soar back to the same levels.
