    Gas pump prices close in on average $3 a gallon

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The average price of a gallon of gasoline this week continued to march steadily to $3 a gallon. In some parts of the country, it's above that already.

    On Friday the average price of a gallon of regular across the U.S. was almost $2.98, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. That's up 2 cents from Monday and 10 cents more than a week ago. Drivers on the West Coast pay an average $3.21 a gallon. Gas is about $3.09 a gallon in New England, $3.05 in the Mid-Atlantic states, $2.98 around the Great Lakes and $2.82 in the Southwest.

    Then there is this:

    Gas prices have risen $1 since just after President Obama took office in January 2009 and are now closing in on the $3 mark, prompting an evaluation of the administration's energy record and calls for the White House to open more U.S. land for oil exploration.

    Why don't we take a page from libs and start doing interviews from just under the gas station pricing signs in DC calling this Obama's fault on the nightly news....?

    Hmm... the price of gas stayed pretty steady around $2.50 a gallon for a while. Now it's steadily rising in the last month or so...

    I dislike Obama as much as anyone, but it seems the Fed is to blame for this.

    Gas in my area has already hit over $3.15, sucks for those of us who drive 4x4 vehicles.
