If you tolerated this year's gasoline prices, then 2014 shouldn't cause you to blow a gasket.

Overall, prices at the pump were better in 2013 than some previous years. In the Tulsa area, there was a spike in May caused by some refinery outages, but the year started and approached its end with fuel costs below $3 a gallon.

Analysts with travel club AAA-Oklahoma and GasBuddy.com both told me they are forecasting fuel prices will average 10 cents less per gallon in 2014.

They better get started now as it will take awhile around here to get below $3 a gallon.

Oh, so the 20 cent jump in the 2 days before 2014 was just to get the last increase? We will all be so much happier and better off because we still don't get a pay raise this year, but the economy is improving at an astonishing rate.

Interesting . . . in my area I have seen gasoline increase by more than 20 cents a gallon just recently . . . optimism can be good I guess.
