03 Feb Gas prices jumping, when will you?
It’s that time of year again, and CNBC.com reports that gas prices are climbing, but the irritation level of consumers is not. At least not like it was in 2008 when gas prices per gallon hit $4.00 and change.
This year, its been predicted that consumers won’t be outraged until gas is 4 dollars or more at least, due to the conditioning we’ve already received from the previous years spikes.
What does this mean for you? Typically the average consumer won’t change driving habits or switch vehicles, like trying to get a jump on fitness every New Year’s Day, to save on fuel economy until they’re sufficiently unhappy with the price at the pump. One of our readers is still outraged that gas ever went above $2.00 per gallon, but $2 to $3 dollars per gallon is becoming the “normal” range for many gas stations across the country.
