2012 marks highest gasoline prices of all time

Desere News -- Gas prices have soared this year, making 2012 the most expensive year ever for gas nationally, according to a press release by Gasbuddy.

The national average was $3.63 per gallon. Some of the spikes were due to California's supply problem and also the impact of Hurricane Sandy flooding which caused power outages to refineries in the Northeast, said Gregg Laskoski, GasBuddy analyst, in the press release.

"It reminds us exactly how vulnerable our nation's fuel infrastructure is and why the U.S. should be looking to increase refining capacity where it is needed most," he said in the press release.

It is just so tiring to have to read how many reich wingers here want to blame Obama for everything. Go to the price charts and check the 11 yr USA average. Would be nice to go to 12 so we could see where Bush started. But with 11 you can see at 12/1/01 the ave. was $1.03. Steady climb there till his peak in mid '08 when it hit $4.11 national average, and if the charts accurate, it has not hit that high during Obama's tenure. We are being played, and it has nothing to do with the POTUS. The only occurrence that might be blamed on the prez would be the drop from above $4 in mid 2008, down to about $1.65 in Jan/Feb in 2009. That drop was due to fact that the money people realized that we couldn't continue on the Bush path. Not just gas crashed, the whole economy came tumbling down, due to taking us into 2 unfunded wars while (for the first time ever) dropping taxes primarily to the rich. The economy is actually starting to move upward, and had we elected Mitt we would have gone back to the Bush habits and truly destroyed the country.

MacDad 614 , POTUS is on record that he wants European prices for gas & utilities ,probably to satisfy his greenie buddies,so wait for his full agenda to unfold .Higher & higher prices ,while Barry & Harry Reid find more ways to take more money from our pockets.They think they can spend our money better than us .

You frackers who think the price of gasoline is the responsibility of the POTUS are as ignorant as those who believe the moon is made of green cheese. Stop drinking the tea and understand that the people responsible for the high price of gasoline are the oil barons and bankers who will not invest in this country. They sit on their money - billions in profits - and think up more ways to take our money out of our pockets.

Expect it to be much higher each year as Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their ilk are in control of the economy.

Inflation being what it is, this makes sense. I just wish fuel efficiency would follow the same curve as gas price.

Seems they are finding more and more excuses to raise prices, but how much is needless spikes from speculators.

The profits for the oil barons are also the highest in history and that along with the tax breaks for the super rich and subsidies.

I agree with Prodaddy who said, "They have " GOUGED " us all year". Last year, oil was $10/barrel more than it is today. Why is gas higher, again?
