According to gas prices have risen 10% over the last two weeks. Yesterday, the Energy Information Administration reported that the average price of gasoline in the US was $2.24 a gallon. The key question is, “How high will gas prices rise this summer?”

Typically demand increases as the Memorial Day holiday nears. This is generally recognized as the start of the summer driving frenzy. Schools are out, beaches are open, RVs are traveling, and boaters are headed to the lake for skiing and fishing.
