How Fiscal Cliff Outcome Could Affect Gas Prices

Another way the fiscal cliff's outcome will affect our everyday lives is through the cost of gas. We've already seen record high gas prices this year and just as they've been starting to go down, be prepared for them to possibly shoot back up.

Over the last month, gas prices had fallen 25 cents in the Mountain State. But now, penny by penny, the numbers on gas station billboards are starting to creep back up. Some economists are predicting that as long as the fiscal cliff deal passes, gas prices may actually end up getting higher. But others said the New Year trend for prices is always to get a little more expensive.
Here's a list of some smartphone apps to download that can help you find the lowest gas prices in your area:
  • AAA TripTik
  • GasBuddy
  • Gas Cubby
  • Route4Me
  • Waze

Oh it will eventually go to about $8.00 a gallon since Obama says that is what we should be paying here. Four years of this president and I doubt anyone will miss him leaving when the next election is up.
