    National Gas Prices - A Snapshot - November 5th

     

    It's  Monday, which means it's time to take at trip across the US of A and  check out how much pain there is at the pump. This is the last of our  weekly Snapshots. Tomorrow is Election Day and the vote will tell the  tale. It should be noted that gas prices are up considerably than 2008.

    In our weekly National Snapshot, we look at a select city in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia.

    Here in the Cornfield, gas costs ranged from $3.02 down 17 cents in the  state capitol of Indianapolis to $3.24 down 9 cents in Terre Haute and  $3.29 down 7 cents in the Cornfield.

    What I found is that in 35  locations the price of gas was down compared to last week when it was  34. Those seeing an increase were 9 locations compared to 2 last Monday.  That means in 7 locations the pump reading was unchanged compared to 1  last week.

    The current national average gas cost is $3.498 down 6.2 cents. Oil per barrel is $85.69 down 27 cents per barrel.

    To compare today's findings with last Monday's:

    From  the Cornfield, this is the last of our weekly Snapshots of gasoline  prices. Tomorrow voters will make the determination of whether President  Barack Obama or challenger Mitt Romney will lead the nation over the  next 4 years. With falling prices, will the pain-at-the-pump be a  deciding factor?

    Perhaps we will have that answer tomorrow.
