Gasoline Prices Rise 13 Percent Over Last 32 Days

CNN Money reports the average price for a gallon of gasoline in America is $3.73. Niles/Morton Grove gasoline prices are even higher.


Most motorists have noticed that the price of gasoline has done nothing but rise over the past month.

CNN Money reports the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in America has increased more than 13 percent over the past 32 days to $3.73.

On Monday afternoon, gas prices in Niles/Morton Grove ranged from $3.92 at the Mobil station at Waukegan and Golf Roads in Morton Grove to $4.15 at the Shell station at W. Touhy and Lehigh Avenues, according to GasBuddy.com

CNN Money is crediting the price increase to a combination of factors including rising crude oil prices, production cuts and refinery closings

With these WEEKLY increases, gasoline might hit 5 dollars a gallon by July... Tesla has a ROOMY 4 door sedan that goes 300+ miles on a single charge... People should consider going ALL ELECTRIC, as the internal combustion engine is a thing of the past.

Nissan has a little economy car called LEAF, but it's VERY small and only goes 80-100 miles on a full charge, which is NOT good... Tesla sedans go 300+ miles on a single charge... www.Tesla.com
