Although the price has fluctuated during the year, the travel club data showed showed striking similarities in the prices it compares in its daily Fuel Gauge report, with barely a penny’s difference in the state’s average price for regular Friday, a week ago, a month ago and on Nov. 29, 2012.

SOUNDS GOOD BUT OUR PRICES SHOULD BE LOWER. HOWEVER THE OIL COMPANIES ARE EXPORTING OUR OIL FOR MORE MONEY. SO WE CAN PAY HIGHER GASOLINE PRICES!!!!!!

The other day crude shot up. What happened? The price at the pump went up IMMEDIATELY a dime a gallon. Crude THEN dropped back to where it was previously. What happened? NOTHING. The pump price stayed UP. That my friend is GOUGING. Let's see what happens on Monday following the long gas gouging weekend. I am glad that I don't travel at Thanksgiving.

Yeah, well I'd like to see them at 1984 prices but then I realize I sound like my mother, who thinks anything that cost more than it did in 1958 is too expensive.

While great that prices in 2013 are at 2012 levels, I'd love to see them at 1995 levels (closer to $2/gallon).

I too think that gas prices of $3.14 are still a little bit too high. But what are you going to do? I have to drive to work and to see family. Gasoline sucks.

2012 gas prices are not something I would brag about.
Before Obama came along and screwed up everything, gas was under $2 per gallon.
