Gas Prices- 1st Person observation

~ Even Pamela Anderson pumps her own gas

Like many of you I am sure, I've been topping off my gas tank lately.

As I looked at some receipts from the past two weeks, I was amazed at the jump in price at my local gas station for 93 octane premium gas (my vehicle runs best with that grade)

TH 2/17   $3.35/gal

FR 2/25   $3.39/gal

SU 2/27   $3.49/gal

WE 3/2    $3.52/gal

* The price per gallon in my area is actually 15-20 cents higher overall ($3.69 on average today for premium) but Sam's Club is less $$

In a span of 14 days, the price of gas per gallon has risen 17 cents 

Per day- 1.21 cents; Over a full 365 period, gas would increase by $4.41/gal

In the summer of 2008, the breaking point with drivers was $4.25/gal...

I wonder what it will be in 2011
