Gasoline prices at the pump have climbed every day for the past 21 days, and they're not expected to let up anytime soon, as a perfect storm of factors - from the start of the typical switch to summer blends to the widening spread between WTI and Brent crude, and peak refinery maintenance still weeks away - drives prices up. Consumers can seek a bit of relief via increasingly popular supermarket gasoline discounts.
These prices are no new news for consumers. They are used to it. We are not near highs yet. Granicus....I think you got the blend uptick backwards. Its usually the winter blend that cost more and summer time the additives comes off.
