AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report shows that motorists nationwide paid an average of $3.11 per gallon of gasoline on Nov. 14, up from $2.75 a gallon a month ago. Guy Caruso, head of the Energy Information Administration, an arm of the U.S. Energy Dept., warned that gasoline prices, while high, don't yet fully reflect the price of crude oil, which is trading around $94 per barrel. On Monday, the U.S. Energy Dept. warned prices could rise another 20¢ a gallon over the next two to three weeks if refiners pass along the increase in crude oil prices.
Isn't that just wonderful news.
