    Not A Bad Price

     

    I just filled my tank for $3.29 a gallon, which is the current highest price in my area. This is also a $.40 increase since Christmas. However, I've recently returned to the USA after living in Swaziland for 2 years. There, every station is the same price which is set by the government and it averaged between $6.00-$6.50 per gallon.

     

    If you consider gas prices worldwide, in some places $9-$10 per gallon, America's gas prices are still a very low bargain from my perspective.

     

    Rising gas prices do not make me change my habits. It is one of those commodities that I must have to get where I need to be.
