Gas prices on the risePosted Wednesday, March 17, 2010, at 9:23 AM
When I need to get gas, I have to confess, I often don't even look at the price. I know I need it and I'm going to have to pay for it no matter what it costs.
But I remember my grandpa, who after living through the great depression, paid attention to every penny. He could always tell you which station in town had the cheapest gas and how many cents per gallon you'd save.
Average gasoline prices in Missouri rose 2.5 cents last week averaging $2.60 per gallon, according to a news release from www.MissouriGasPrices.com. Prices today are 82.5 cents per gallon higher than this time last year in Missouri and 24 cents higher than last month.
Does this mean a steady climb as we approach the summer travel season?? Only time will tell.
