Gas Prices Up

Gas Prices Up - As oil drops below $100 barrel, gas prices up around the country. In fact, the inventory has dropped by more than 32.8 million barrels. This is common during this time of year because so many people are driving, but analysts say the percentage being dropped is more than normal.

According to Patrick DeHann, petroleum analyst with Gasbuddy.com, said the increase in less oil will be the ‘key driver’ in gas prices increasing. But he went on to say,”It’s not like we’re going to wake up tomorrow and run out of gas.”

With the increase in gas prices and the summer just around the corner people are looking for tools to help save some money on gas. Using sites like Gasbuddy.com or Mapquest.com to find the cheapest gas could help you out i the long run. Some are using sites like Mapquest to determine whether it is cheaper to travel by plane, car, or other means of transportation.

The rising prices are also becoming a concern for political figures like President Obama. Poll numbers are dropping as the prices continue to rise. Some also feel that they are being cheated out of their money and illegal actions are going on. In spite of the questions inspectors have reassured that they are watching the prices of the gas, making sure no funny business is going on.
