    National Gas Prices - A Snapshot - Special Edition

     

    Usually  I put out the National Snaphot on Monday, but with news coming from  sources all over the nation of sudden increases in gas prices, I thought  we should  take at trip across the US of A and check out how much pain  there is at the pump.

    Was there pain over the 4th of July holiday?

    In  our National Snapshot, we look at a select city in all 50 states as  well as the District of Columbia. Signs are that the pump readings are  starting to rise once more.

    Here in the Cornfield, gas costs ranged from $3.08 today up 12 cents in the state capitol of Indianapolis from Monday to $3.23 and stable in Terre Haute while it is $3.26 down 3 cents from Monday in the Cornfield.

    What I found is that in 17 locations the price of gas was down. This was offset by 20 locations that saw cost going up. That means in 14 locations the pump reading was unchanged.

    The current national average gas cost is $3.387 or up 2 cents on average. Oil per barrel is up to $87.270 or almost $5 per barrel.

    To compare today's findings with Monday's: http://marksden.com/blog/blog2.php/national-gas-prices-a-snapshot-17
