2012 Was Bad News for Gas Prices

2012 = Highest Gas Prices EVER?!

It’s no secret that gas prices were high this year and we all felt the burn in one way or another.  While most of us probably didn’t see the price per gallon rise over $4.00, some states did!  YUCK!  However this might be due to unexpected causes. The Wall Street Journal Reports

“Record high gas prices have made this the most expensive year yet for motorists,” said AAA spokesman Avery Ash. “Factors as volatile as major hurricanes, refinery outages and tension in the Middle East resulted in significant frustration for people filling up their cars.”

Just reading this post gives me goose bumps (not the good kind).  I am really hoping next year gets better!   Money Talks News reports that the states who suffered the least amount were Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee and South Carolina.  All fell under or were at a $3.40 average for the year.  Lucky them!

This past December, I wrote a blog post on how you can find the cheapest gas in your area.  Check it out HERE and let’s make a toast to low gas prices in 2013!  Cheers!

Until next time,
