Tim’s Observations:

It’s already been a long, hard year for gas prices, and we aren’t even halfway through. The rest of the year isn’t going to be any easier. 

After a brief period of decline in March, prices have steadily risen in recent weeks, topping off today with an all-time national high average of $4.371 per gallon of unleaded regular, having risen 15 cents per gallon in the last week alone.  

As the summer driving season is set to kick off, reports by GasBuddy and the Energy Information Administration indicate we could see another 20 cents per gallon on top of what we are paying now. 

Another summer issue to consider is hurricane season, starting June 1 and ending Nov. 1. 

I grew up in Florida, and I know that even a modest storm striking the Gulf Coast could damage or take out refineries, putting ore of a strain on an already volatile market.  Four oil refineries in Louisiana and Mississippi that provided 900,000 barrels per day of petroleum products were seriously damaged by Hurricane Katrina, and it took weeks to start producing again.
