LH bridges the difference in rising gas prices

An AP article reports that rising gas prices this past weekend ranged from $3.39 to $3.95 per gallon — and that the two extremes were both along the Lincoln Highway. The national average price for regular gasoline rose 15 cents in the previous two weeks to $3.62 a gallon according to the Lundberg Survey of 7,000 stations nationwide released Sunday. That’s up 55 cents since 2008 began. The lowest price was in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where a gallon averaged $3.39. The highest average was in San Francisco at $3.95.

  1. These prices sure causing me to do some re-evaluating of my driving. What really irks me is that the oil companies are making these huge profits while my billfold shrinks.

    I am, though, seriously considering the River to River Iowa chapter tour this August.
