If you’re looking to do traveling over the next few months, you might want to budget more for filling up your gas tank. We’re still in what passes for spring in Southwest Georgia, but gas pumps definitely have a springy look to them, at least as far as the cost per gallon.

Need to budget a little more in the vacation fund this year to pay for extra gas cost.

Gas anywhere else is less expensive than gas at home. I'm looking forward to that for my road trip!

Who can actually afford to travel with these prices, and they are still going higher. Here comes another recession and vast increases in consumer prices nationwide.

Plan for high prices and use this website to minimize your gasoline costs.
