[QUOTE=alilmagical32;1102665]I heard on the new last night that gas prices in Lake Buena Vista are upwards of $6.00 a gallon! EEK! This makes me seriously reconsider flying for our April trip. I thought we would come out way ahead by driving, but now I’m not so sure.
Gas is around $3.70 a gallon here. . . what is it like where you are so I can get a better idea of an average?[/QUOTE]
That is just at certain stations that are jacking up prices. Average for Orlando metro area is around $3.70 (just bought gas for 3.68 was 3.62 yesterday).
Never buy gas around the airport as most of the stations around there are normally a couple dollars above the average.
Airline tickets are on the rise to because of fuel cost as well.
Gas is going to spike this summer according to the experts due to a number of factors. We are using less, producing less, and exporting more refined product. There is also the factor of the weakening dollar due to are federal debt, budget deficit, and printing of money (as the dollar sinks in value the price of a barrel of oil goes up. I’ve heard that because of these factors gas could reach a national average of $5 a gallon over the summer.
