    Gas prices climb 30 cents a gallon

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Gas prices continued their slow but steady march higher Tuesday, surpassing a nationwide average of $3.63 cents a gallon on the back of refinery problems in the United States and higher crude oil prices globally.

    Nationwide average gasoline prices are now 30 cents higher than they were just five weeks ago. They are now at the midway mark between this year's high price of $3.94 a gallon -- hit April 5 -- and the recent low of $3.33 hit just over five weeks ago, according to AAA.

    By this weekend, gasoline prices will likely be higher than they were a year ago at this time, according to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service.

    There was also a fire that will hurt my area...

    A fire at Chevron Corp. (CVX)’s Richmond oil refinery in California pushed gasoline prices higher today as it disrupted fuel output at the state’s third-largest crude- processing plant.

    When I drove cross country last month, gasoline was $3.19 in St Pete, $2.99 in Mississippi, and about $3.29 to $3.43 elsewhere except for the gougers. There were these places (Willcox AZ, Lost Hills CA, and all of the Bay Area) which charged 50¢ per gallon more than the going rate. I guess some people just don't care.

    Lost Hills Ca!!! I am surprised you did not lose a kidney or the gold in you teeth.
    I dream of the day a chicken can cross the road without it's motives being questioned.

    It dropped 10 cents in the last couple of days, from 3.99 to 3.89.

    I'm guessing it will be back around 3.50 for Labor Day weekend. Our in-state tourism industry is counting on that. If metro Detroiters can't afford to drive, then Traverse City, Holland, etc., will miss out on all that business.

    I'm going to St. Joseph for the weekend, but I'm staying with family, so only the gas companies will be making money off of me. The beach is free. We used to go to Traverse City for Labor Day, but we no longer have access to Grandpa's house. It wouldn't be the same without him, anyways.

    I have not paid over $3.39 all summer. At one point we were under $3.00. One fill up with my grocery store discount I paid $2.69. (30 cents off) Even in Las Vegas prices are around 3.40 a gallon right now. My town is 3.28.

    Oil dropped today, that should help.

    What a weird place that was, ie the Texaco in Lost Hills. My sister lives west of there, so that's why I was there. They were charging a fortune for gas, and inside they wanted $13 a pound for fudge, 12 dollars for pistachios, and $7.50 for caramel popcorn while having signs begging you to buy things in exchange for using their beautiful restrooms. They would sell a lot more stuff if they weren't trying to get your last dollar on every sale.

    I'm paying $3.55 right now. As for who's to blame, why Bush of course.
