According to an article on CNNMoney.com, gas prices have rose steadily over the past three weeks and might continue to rise. The average price was $2.22 per gallon on February 9, 2007, nearly four cents higher since January. This rise is due to the rise in price of crude oils, a $7.90 increase. Unfortunately, the demand for gasoline during this winter has been low causing big marginal losses in the retail level. This is going to cause a big problem should prices continue to rise and demand does not pick back up. Also, as prices begin to rise, people are going to start to drive less. They will begin to drive only when necessary, or only fill up with the prices dip down. This will hurt the oil industry and only push the prices higher. If the demand for a product decreases, it is only natural for the price to rise. It's a never ending cycle. Do you think that we will find a stop to the money eating cycle? Or will gas prices continue to rise?
