For the First Time Ever, the Gas Average is $5

The cost of gasoline is expected to keep climbing.

For the first time in history, gasoline prices hit a national average of five dollars a gallon over the weekend.
The cost of gasoline is expected to keep climbing and analysts say spiking prices mean households in the U.S. are spending about 160-dollars more per month on fuel than they were a year ago. AAA says at this time last year, a gallon cost just over three dollars. There’s concern fuel prices may not top out until the middle of next month, which is when summer driving season traditionally peaks.
