Over The River And Through The Woods Is Getting Pricey

November 25, 2009

If you're one of the 33.2 million Americans planning to drive to grandma's, the in-laws, or the local outlet mall this Thanksgiving/Black Friday holiday, be prepared for three things: lots of traffic, lewd postprandial stories from Uncle Ted, and unpleasant numbers at the pump. Gas prices have ticked down a couple of cents in recent weeks, but at roughly $2.64 per gallon, they're far above last Thanksgiving's $1.92 average. And unfortunately, because oil is traded in increasingly weaker U.S. dollars, crude prices (and subsequently gas prices) will move increasingly higher over the winter. So, um, happy holidays?
