Gas prices continue to increase

WUTF FM - U. Florida -- A 14-cent increase in gas prices over just one week created concern for many Florida residents.

The average Florida price for regular gas is $3.57, which is slightly higher than the national level.

This rise in gas prices affected Gainesville residents like Bob Becker, who does a significant amount of driving for his job.

“It’s horrible,” he said. “Last week, I could fill up a tank for the same price that I’m getting three-quarters of a tank today.”

This fast increase is leading some people to believe it is going to get worse before it will get better.

Gas prices continue to increase! Gas prices continue to rise and Big Oil and Big Gas sells fuel and natural gas on the world market for higher prices.
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! The price at the pump needs to go down to $2/gallon - *$3, *$3.50/gallon or *$4.00 is Not the new low!
More Refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting fuel is!
Take care of the domestic fuel market first and above all else!
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

If the economy ever starts to rebound (it isn't, despite the cheering on CNN), gas prices will skyrocket.

The White House has fostered wealth distribution and the Fed has printed massive amounts of dollars to devalue our currency, this an order from the White House. So saying Obama has nothing to do with prices rising is BS. We could easily be out of this gas increase by drilling, completing pipelines and letting federal land be used for same.
