Gas Prices Back On Upward Trend

After a slow but steady drop since Memorial Day, gas prices bottomed out at a national average of $3.55 a gallon before heading back up again.

After a steep climb and flirting with $4 a gallon, the gas price appeared to be moving in the right direction for a while. From just before Memorial Day until the end of June, prices were headed downward and by the beginning of July the gas price was back down to $3.55 a gallon nationally and about $3.42 locally - but that trend was short lived. For most of the month of July, prices have been headed back up with the national gas price July 25 up to $3.68 a gallon. This price is also about a dollar up from what it was the same time last year. 

According to a report in International Business Times, this is linked to the price of crude oil, which is almost back up to $100 a barrel. This has significant consequences for the U.S. economy with every $1 per barrel rise in oil decreasing U.S. GDP by about $100 billion per year. Also, every 1 cent increase in the cost of gas at the pump is reported to decreases U.S. consumer disposable income by about $600 million a year.
