Fuel prices up close to record highs

Posted By on February 23, 2008

Demand for fuel is down, but prices are up to a near all time high in the U.S., says a USAToday article. Diesel hit a record high of $3.54 per gallon, and unleaded gasoline is up to a $3.11 national average price, which is an increase of more than 6.2 cents in two days. The previous record of $3.22 was in May 2007.
Cinci to OrlandoWhile doing a few calculations, it might even save a few bucks to fly from Cincinnati to Orlando rather than drive … if you consider the cost of miles on an automobile. Here’s the Triple-A Fuel Cost Calculator (below) using our Honda Pilot as compared to a Delta Airlines flight.

    Besides the cost of additional mileage on your car consider the travel time too. 13.5 hour drive one way to Orlando and back isn’t my idea of a good time. That’s 2 days worth of vacation. A couple hours on a plane is worth it a lot of time. The other factor though is when you get to Orlando how are you planning on getting around? Taxi fair or bus shuttles will easily counter the cost of the difference in travel costs unless you have family or friends.

    BTW I paid 3.45 at Murphy’s in front of Walmart at Beckett Ridge.

  • Hello Jacob … I paid $3.00 for unleaded regular at the Flying J at the I-75/Rt 30 Beaverdam Ohio station today. (Saturday)
