Gas Prices Have Risen

The rates of gas have spiraled upwards since the start of 2014. And fuel costs were more than what they had been exactly a year ago. The charges per gallon of gasoline were almost 10 cents higher than April of 2013. 

And this cost price of gasoline is subject to a state of ups and downs thanks to the oil politics that goes on throughout the world. The AAA (American Automobile Association) however thinks differently. 

Its top brass feels that the prices will reach a sticking point soon. Whether such an unlikely event will occur in reality is something that only time will tell. The few months ahead are crucial in this sense. 

Especially the revamping and maintenance of four oil refineries in Texas has led to a small storm of sorts. And what can we say of the Russian takeover of the Ukraine? It has immense consequences for gas prices in a world of violence and war. 

Motorists everywhere in the Unites States faced the conundrum of raised prices. Whether it was Kentucky or Ohio or Alabama, all states were affected more or less by this vicious circle that refused to go away. 

And the costs rose inch by inch causing widespread panic among consumers. The gas guzzlers of America need oil and without this black gold they simply won’t budge from their garages in which they are parked. 

Industrial civilization depends on gasoline without which the engine of progress for modern man comes to a halt. It is yet to be seen if the dictatorial Putin can be stopped from carrying out his nefarious designs in the Ukraine. 

For if Putin gains hegemony in that region it will be a gesture that insults the West and its high and mighty plans in a way worse than that Butcher of Baghdad, Saddam Hussein, ever did back in the days of the Gulf War.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
