Tallahassee, Florida - March 26, 2012 -

Gas prices are once again on the rise one survey says Chicago had the highest price for any city at $4.58 a gallon, but prices in Tallahassee aren't exactly cheap either.

Regular is about $3.81 a gallon in Tallahassee. That's up here locally nearly 5 cents per gallon from where prices stood just a week ago, but it's still lower than the national average. Gasbuddy.com has that at about $3.86 per gallon for regular.

These prices are nearly 27 cents higher today than they were just one year ago in Tallahassee, and are 13 cents higher than they were a month ago. That's 21 straight days we have seen the national average of a gallon of gas rise at the pumps.

However, Gas Buddy says there is some good news with these rising prices. They say that seeing prices rise so quickly could mean prices are beginning to peak and that's something motorist have been saying they hope happens soon.

    Duh...Obama begs the Saudi's to increase their supply while shutting down our own safe supplies???? Are you better off now than 3 years ago? Nah..Just wait for Obamas increased flexibility IF he gets elected and doesn't have to worry about re-election. Just as General Patton studied books on Rommels tank tactics in order to defeat him..Obama studied the constitution to be able to get around it..think about it. The handwriting is on the walls, look at his instructions to the EPA to fine, harrass, and hobble the energy sector after Cap and Trade(Tax) was defeated by Congree...Nuff said..check your history.

    the main distibutors of the gas rigs need to higher their min. requirement that the sub gas company have to take out every year. the sub companies are pumping the min. and making us pay higher prices. we have enough gas to last another 100 years or so. the only reason we are being charged this much is so all of our higher goverment personel that have stock in these companies can make more money. we should not be paying over $2.50 a gal for any gas at the pump.

    Maybe if people showed as much concern about the economy and price gouging as they do about the Stand Your Ground law, perhaps we could start getting some relief.

    Here in the U.S. we have some of the most readily available, highest quality and most inexpensive motor fuel in the world. And people still want to snivel about the price. The price to fill up is the fault of the people who choose to shackle themselves to oversized and over powered vehicles for basic transportation. Which is pretty much everyone. That is where the fault really lies. It's the very same people who where the real cause of the BP spill. A tax should be levied on vehicle registration renewals based on the number of miles driven in the last year and the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.

        That does not matter one whit. The fact remains that people here still want to whine about low cost fuel. In fact the taxes we pay on fuel should be higher. Much higher.

      I drive, A LOT, for work because people like you have no skills, or lack the education to accomplish what you want done. Is it cool with you that I add my mileage expenses on to your bill when I have to visit your house? And, since you drive something with no horsepower and you need services or something hauled...ok if I add my expenses again? Of course, I will add overhead and profit into the scenario as well, still ok?

        How you deal with your expenses in your business is your problem. You are the one who made your decisions based on a readily available supply of cheap fuel. Change careers if you can't handle the fact that that is changing.

      What an insightful comment. I agree. Great post. These people with these Navigators and Yukons and Cadillac Escalades shouldn't complain AT ALL.

    Thank you Obummer. The oil that is pumped out of the ground and refined in the United States should either stay in the United States or face some heavy duty export taxes. The dudes in the Middle East that are causing all of the world problems these days have no refining capabilities. Make them pay.
