For the first time, the average all-United States price of a gallon of regular gasoline has risen above $4 a gallon.
For several months, I have been tracking the oil futures and spot markets. (My workmates can corroborate.) A couple of weeks ago, I added the pump prices, and this morning the United States reached $4.005. That's up 90 cents a gallon from a year ago.
So I'll be spending the next little while thinking of ways to help our transit use.
