The price of gas, right now
This final note today, the flip side of $100-a-barrel oil, what we pay at the pump. We’ve been getting some listener mail about spiking pump prices, seeing one price on the way to work and a dime higher on the way home. I’ve seen it too, but fast as the global economy works, it doesn’t work quite that fast.
The average regular unleaded price this week? $3.24, according to the Energy Department.
Next week? That’s a whole different ballgame.
