Just What We Needed, Another Way for Gas Prices to Rise

I don’t know about you, but I’d grown rather content watching the gas prices fall below the $3.40 mark. Of course, after writing that sentence, I think, “Wow, how we lower our sights.” But yeah, it’s nice seeing more fuel go into my tank for less money. But, boy, was I ever silly to get too comfortable. As of  today, Kentuckians will be paying about 1.9 cents more per gallon due to an increase in the gasoline tax rate from about 26 cents to 28 cents. I guess we should have expected something like this going into a holiday weekend.  It’s just that when gas prices rise due to something other than an increase in oil prices, you can’t help but wonder if there will be other ways down the road that the price at the pump will jump.
