NEW YORK Gasoline prices rose yet again at the pump Monday, but fell along with oil in the futures market as traders bet that the government will report an increase in gasoline inventories this week.
The national average price of a gallon of gas reached $3.035 Monday, up 0.1 cent overnight and more than 2 cents since Friday, according to AAA and the Oil Price Information Service. In some parts of the country, however, gas was approaching $4 a gallon.

In a separate report, the government said the average price for gasoline shot past $3 a gallon and was just 1.5 cents away from the all-time record, the government said Monday.

The national price for regular unleaded gasoline increased 8.3 cents over the last week to $3.054 a gallon, the second-highest level ever and 14.5 cents more than a year ago, the federal Energy Information Administration said in its weekly survey of 800 service stations.

I agree and I don't think we will ever have cheap gas again. Only about 8 years ago, gas used to be around $1! People were complaining when it hit around $1.70, jeez, that would be a great bargain now. How times change....

When I first moved to Scottsdale, AZ in 2003, I was shocked to see so many large vehicles. The custom there is the bigger and nicer vehicle, the better you might fit in.

Things changed a lot, so many smaller cars - not like before.

I'm just not understanding why so many people in Arizona "need" large SUVs? Do you get blizzards in Phoenix?

Look at the price mags on Gasbuddy.com or elsewhere: California is a land until its own. Someone in government is screwing you over.
