Gas prices expected to hit record territory in 2013

KCRA --
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —Just when gas prices were starting to stabilize, oil industry watchdogs say 2013 will be a very expensive year for drivers.

Gas prices went up in Sacramento by five cents in the last week, and up to eight cents nation-wide.

At the ARCO gas station in Sacramento County, gas was going for $3.31 on Sunday.

This may seem cheap to many drivers, but analysts warn that prices will climb from now until April.

Winter started out with some relief for drivers but Oil Industry Watchdog Charles Langley said gas will hit record territory.

"Yeah, I think we're at the point now where $4 a gallon seems cheap. I think by the end of next year we may not raise an eyebrow at $5 a gallon. I think that's where we're headed," Langley said.Leslie Broga told KCRA

Back in 2008 $3 a gallon put us into a recession long before it reached $4. We can't sustain expensive gasoline prices and have a recovery, yet Big Oil doesn't want gasoline prices below $3 again. It is an old pattern in the winter months to start raising prices until May. We only got a small break in prices after the hurricane season and they started raising prices again.

I feel like we are being warned so if the oil companies do get their wish of over $5/gl, we won't feel so bad. They are thinking of a little train saying, we think we can, we think we can....get the price over $5.

We always have the option to keep our driving to an absolute minimum. Reducing demand keeps the prices down - at least in theory.

It has the nice side effect of keeping money in my wallet too. I save on brakes and tires. When you stay home, you don't spend money on crap you don't need (I don't shop on the internet either).

Much of our oil comes from Alberta gets sold to the US then we buy it back from them..No wonder they are paying under $1 a litre and us in Quebec get to pay up to $1.45..That's just not right! $1 a litre is equal to $3.45 an American gallon
