Gas Prices Jump 11 Cents Across Texas

NORTH TEXAS (AP) — Retail gasoline prices across Texas have jumped 11 cents during spring break travel week.

AAA Texas on Wednesday reported the average price per gallon at the pump has reached $3.70 per gallon.

The association says the nationwide retail price for gasoline rose a nickel, standing at $3.81 a gallon.

The most expensive gasoline statewide was in Dallas and Fort Worth, at an average $3.78 per gallon. Amarillo has the least expensive gasoline this week, costing $3.58 per gallon.

Analysts say higher crude costs, supply concerns and signs of economic recovery have kept pressure on gasoline futures prices.

    Isn’t this what our current president wanted?

    We really should not fuss.

    Higher the cost = lower quantity we’ll spend.
    Lower we spend = Less energy used.
    Less energy used = Less independence.
    Less independence = More dependence on Uncle Sam.

    Yes. This is GOOD!
    I never liked our being a 1st world country with it’s side effects of good quality of life. We Americans are such economic / resources bullies and nothing good should go unpunished.
