After recent dip, gas prices going up

I’ve noted that recent declines in gas prices have certainly helped the Savannah economy, so I guess I’m obligated to note that prices are going back up. They’re still 30 cents or so off the recent peak, but here’s the graph of average prices over the last year:

    I think we are unfortunately slipping into a prolonged period where every time the economy begins to come back a bit, gas prices will increase. The economy begins to slow, and gas prices will come down, but not to the low they were before. Until we get some real energy reform going, I think we are in for a rough ride.

      Thanks Baker. I think that dynamic is in place right now too. It’s a bad bad trend.
