Today the Triangle crossed the $4 barrier.
Based on purchases reported by thousands of stations across the country, AAA says the local average price of regular has reached a record high of $4.007.
That’s a bit better than the nationwide average, $4.078.
Can you avoid paying $4? Sure, but maybe not for much longer.
Gasbuddy.com’s spinoff site, raleighgasprices.com, reports that few local spots were selling the smelly, precious stuff today for $3.88.
How long did it take for the price to rise from $3 to $4? Just four months: Back on my birthday, Feb. 16, the Triangle price was $2.985.
What are you doing about the price of gas, really?
