OK so we were lulled a bit in mid-summer, but now gas prices are steadily on the rise (again) along with other costs, like food. On a weekend trip to Baltimore, MD this past weekend (3 hours away), this was the gas price range — $3.50 to $3.77/gas. Quite a difference from gas prices in mid-June when the low price was $3.29/gal. By mid-July, prices ranged from $3.35 to $3.57/gal.
Yes, we know that these prices are way less than folks in other parts of the world now pay. Blogger friend Christer posted last week: I had to fill my car with petrol yesterday and now it costs 15,49 Swedish kronor/ liter and that is $ 9.31 /US gallon. I just can’t understand this, the US dollar is cheaper than it has in a very long time and still the price just goes up!
