As soon as we thought gas prices were going down, they’re going up again and this time there’s no escaping it.
A few years ago, people flocked gas stations when gas was under $2. People bought bigger cars thinking that it was going to stay cheap when in reality, it only lasted about a year.
Ever since then, gas prices have been rising slowly but steadily, with jumps here and there between 30 cents to 70 cents a gallon.
In places like South Florida, that’s where I notice it the most.
There are multiple reasons as to why gas prices rise. One of them is, due to the emissions during the winter compared to the summer, hotter weather, they try and change the way gas is formulated to its less of an impact on the environment.
This has a huge impact on traveling, especially for spring break and Memorial Day weekend.
Flights these days could be very cheap, but during this time of year, it’s pretty hard to find those.
I think this is a very typical story that has been around for a long time. There really isn’t a lot to cover on gas prices rising other than … they’re rising, duh!
But, with that said, it’s a necessity for people to know or be aware of if they’re planning on traveling or taking a vacation during these times because they need to know if it’s going to be more expensive due to the time of year they’re looking to travel.
I don’t think this is a very hard topic to cover and you can find articles like this written anywhere in our country in any state or city.
