The average cost of gas has been more than $3 per gallon for 1,000 days straight, with the national average being about $3.54 a gallon.
It’s the longest streak ever for gas prices at this level, but AAA experts say that we can kiss the days of cheaper gas prices goodbye, because of supply and demand.
One of AAA’s head honchos explains, “Paying less than $3 per gallon for gasoline may be automotive history for most Americans, like using 8-track tapes or going to a drive-in movie.”
While the demand for gas is down in theU.S.from its peak in the summer of 2007, it has drastically increased in emerging economies like China and Brazil.
