It doesn't surprise me one bit that gas prices are knocking at the $4 dollar mark yet again. I am also not surprised that the EIA made an unwise prediction in comparison to last year’s gas prices. However, I was mind boggled to find out that gas raised an average of ten cents in Tennessee in one week! The fact that we are only in the first quarter of this year and gas prices are already higher than they were any time last year, gives me the impression they won’t be declining any time soon. After reading the article, I began to notice how this is affecting me personally. My vehicle has pretty decent gas mileage and I am noticing how I have to get gas more often than what I am use to. Just last year, my car could fill up with $35 easy! ($40 tops) Last month, it took right over $45 to fill my tank. But on the contrary, I am probably more fortunate the average driver. I really feel bad for people who drive sport utility vehicle or any car that doesn’t have good miles per gallons.
