The national average is just over three dollars. According to Lundberg Survey of American gas stations the current hike is the highest since the financial meltdown back in 2008.

Reports show that retail gas prices increased by two cents a gallon. Experts say the the gas prices should show stability very soon.

" I just feel like a lot of people can't really travel or get on the highway it's just rough right now," said Thomasville Resident Diane Burnett.

    If you voted for obammy then you have no reason to complain.He said plain as day that with his agenda that energy prices would nessecarilly skyrocket.How can you support someone with that kind of an agenda,and then complain about having to pay more.Just like the idiot liberals who don't like the tea party because they want less taxes,and then complain about have to pay property taxes,or in this case,gas taxes.

    T. Boone Pickens wrote on 1/20/2011: In 2010, our dependence on foreign oil cost us $337 billion to purchase 4.25 billion barrels of petroleum. That's sending approximately $641,172 per minute to foreign countries, rather than keeping those dollars cycling in our economy. All I have to ask is...How is that ban on responsible drilling on dry land in the midwest and ANWAR working out for ya? Nevermind the ban on drilling in the gulf. Do not complain about gas prices when you support an administration that won't drill near our coast but allows foreign nations to do it. You have no right and your opinion is null and void.

    Every time the price of gas is reported to be climbing, what happens? It climbs. Sure, it may stabilize, after it climbs.

    The government doesn't make any profits. The taxes collected at the pump pay for roads and is spent. If there were really profits, e would have a surplus, not a deficit. Also the takes have not gone up, they are levied per gallon, and not as a markup like sales taxes. If you want to pay less in fuel taxes, drive less.

    Who ever is giving 'retail reports' is lying. Yesterday it ranged from $3.05 and $3.09 in Jacksonville to $3.11 to $3.18 in Lake City and has been $3.23 in Suwannee County.Gasoline has been increasing 3-5 cents every week for the past month. The public needs to see stickers on every pump that shows the full cost of the fuel and the ammounts of each tax from local,state & federal. Consumers are not being given a choice of purchase based on the full costs. If costs do not stabilize or drop back down it will slow down the economic recovery of this state and this nation as we all know increased fuel prices increase the cost of everything else.
