ON THE ROAD — has issued a gas price hike alert.

I’m sorry, they capitalize that.

Gas Price Hike Alert.

Lately, there’s been a lot of hand-wringing (and not a little news story hype) when the price of gas rises, even when the hikes have been about 20 cents a gallon.

Sorry, I just can’t get excited any more.

I’m looking at my GasBuddy app right now, and it shows $3.14 at the nearest gas station. GasBuddy warns that prices will rise to $3.35.

Hey, if prices don’t rise by¬†at least 20 cents a gallon, I’m yawning.

But look out! There’s a Gas Price Hike Alert out there!

    Maybe you have more money than many of us. 20 cents a gallon, is 20 cents a gallon. Makes a big difference in my budget. Not a yawn for me and I use GasBuddy every time I'm low on gas. Their great and I for one appreciate their email alerts.

    For those of you who had the opportunity to hear the state of the state address Governor Snyder wants to create an additional gas tax to fund road improvements which I find to be a needed necessity but it will come at a critical time considering the economy and continued weakness. So yes indeed .20 cents is very substantial for most of us.

    When I went to work (over near the airport) this past Monday, gas was $3.30 at the stations there in the morning. It was $3.59 when I went by them in the evening. Thursday evening they were up to $3.75. Funny – I haven't heard the 'excuses' they always give – like an oil supply pipline into Michigan is down for 'maintenance' or they're switching over to the 'summer blends…'
