Maine gas prices jump more than 4 cents

AUGUSTA — Maine gas prices continue to rise, but the good news is they are not rising as fast as they are nationally.

Price-monitoring website reports Monday that the average retail cost of a gallon of gas rose more than four cents in the past week to $3.76.

Meanwhile, the national average jumped almost six cents per gallon, to an average of $3.55.

The Maine price is based on a survey of more than 1,200 gas stations in the state.

Maine prices are now almost 12 cents per gallon higher than the same day a year ago and nearly 22 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Its funny when we were facing

Its funny when we were facing the milk cliff some of our people in the goverment was saying if we dont handle this matter peoples extra money would disappear because the increase of the price of milk and the economy would stall but I guess if the gas price keep going up thats not going to hurt the economy. If the president wants to give a real stimulus then why doesnt he drop gas buy half and see the economy take off. People and business would have a lot more cash and guess what we would spend it.
