Gas prices continue to rise

RIVERSIDE – The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in the Inland Empire rose today for the seventh time in eight days, increasing three-tenths of a cent to $3.588.

The average price in Riverside and San Bernardino counties is 4.2 cents more than one week ago, but 14.1 cents less than one month ago and 3.4 cents lower than one year ago, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price had dropped 71 times in 77 days, falling to its lowest amount since Dec. 27, 2011, before the current stretch of increases began.

    This, I already know and feel it when I put gas in my truck. What I would like to know is why!

    Now that most of us have become accustom to the +$3.00 gas prices, the waters have been tested from big oil for $4.00 gas prices and we all bought into it by still driving are cars more than needed. I suggest CNG as an alternative fuel and saving big money folks. Its our future and imagine filling up your car with fuel in your own garage while you sleep.
