gas prices continue to rise… and rise

Texas gasoline prices shoot to record levels
— reported by the Houston Chronicle

Texas gasoline prices skyrocketed to record levels this week as crude oil prices stayed near 60 dollars a barrel, according to the AAA Texas Weekend Gas Watch survey released today.

The weekly survey found the price of regular unleaded self-serve in Texas averaged a record $2.23 a gallon, up a full 10 cents over last week and 43 cents more than last year’s average.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m definitely feeling the increases. Today I paid $33.06 for a tank of gas. Even a year ago, I wouldn’t have thought that that was possible.
