With gas prices hitting a three-year high and projected to keep rising, we Americans are going to take a hit every time we fill up our flashy new SUVs and crossovers we’re all buying. But there’s a counterargument that today’s vehicles offset rising gas prices with higher fuel efficiency. But are they efficient enough…
You know how everyone has been losing their minds and buying SUVs, trucks and crossovers while gas has been cheap? And the people with a little bit of foresight have been yelling back, “WAIT UNTIL GAS PRICES GO UP!” Well, that moment is now, kids.
Gas costs in the U.S. are climbing, with the average price as of early May sitting right around $2.99 according to Bloomberg. But before Americans get too sour, let’s compare U.S. fuel prices against those found elsewhere in the world.
It’s not uncommon for gas supply to go down and prices to go up following a major natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey’s devastating impact in Texas, which crippled the region’s oil refineries and cut a large portion of the U.S. short-term oil supply with it. But the U.S. plans for situations like these, so there’s…
In recent days, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said his office has been flooded with complaints of price-gouging, following the wrath of Hurricane Harvey—hotels tripling rates, $99 for a case of water, and fuel as costly as $10 per gallon. On Monday, that already-high price for gas was bested by a Houston…
Well here’s something totally and definitely unexpected: oil prices are forecasted to rise this year. Nobody saw that one coming. No one. Uh uh. Not a single person. Ever.
Three gasoline tankers have spent the past few weeks floating around the Caribbean with no direction for delivery. Together they carry 1.35 million barrels of gasoline and octane booster and some quick (bad) math puts that somewhere around $100 million worth of fuel.
A major East Coast pipeline leaked around 250,000 gallons of gasoline, or roughly 6,000 to 8,000 barrels, in Alabama last week and is expected to raise the price of gas by five to ten cents in the surrounding states, according to local CBS station WIAT.
The electric-car market is growing, but remains small. A majority of drivers still stop at the station regularly, filling up their gas-guzzling vehicles and allowing the oil industry to stay in business. But Bloomberg projects more than a third of all cars will be electric by 2040, and the oil companies aren’t buying…
Gas is pretty astoundingly cheap right now, but, for a brief, glorious moment over this weekend, gas was absurdly cheap. Like, 1973 pre-oil embargo cheap. Thanks for this little gassy miracle go to the most noble kind of war, the price war.

Gas prices in the U.S. are now at their lowest levels in four years. That's the best news ever if you're a gearhead, isn't it?
As of this writing, the current U.S. average gas price for regular unleaded fuel is $3.59 a gallon. But one city in Kentucky brought the price down to $3.36 by selling gas to the public themselves, undercutting the privately-owned filling stations. Hooray, socialism!
Remember when filling up your gas tank was cheap enough that it didn't have to involve a rubber hose, a breath mint and running from the cops? Those were the days! But one New York gas station rolled back the prices on gas for one day only — just not for the reasons you might think.
The fact that gas prices in California are only rivaled by Alaska and Hawaii is nothing new. What is new, however, is that it no longer has the highest prices among the 48 contiguous states. That title now belongs to New York.
Are you the kind of person who only purchases gasoline and neither pays for nor consumes any other goods? If so, we have excellent news for you today: gas prices in 2013 are expected to decline, even though the cost of just about everything else is going up.
The national average gas price is $3.805-per-gallon according to GasBuddy, which isn't catastrophic but is a huge pain in the ass. We paid more last week to put regular into a car in New York. Since gas prices are regional and gas tanks vary in size, we're curious what you paid this week.
If you've been meaning to fill up your gas tank, now might be the time to do it. There are quite a few oil platforms in Tropical Storm Isaac's path.
High gas prices suck, right? Wrong. There's actually a silver lining that only the in-market car consumer boys at Edmunds Inside Line are able to see. They put together a list of five good things about the increasingly higher cost of gas that we've refined and edited below.
