Gas prices could rise in the D.C. area

By Washington Post editors

With crude oil costs approaching $90 a barrel, analysts say motorists in the D.C. area and elsewhere may pay more at the pump this week, WTOP reports.

According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, the average price for regular unleaded in the D.C. region is $2.82 -- just 1 cent higher than last week but 14 cents higher than one year ago.

The motor club says a spike in crude oil -- which posted a 6.7 percent gain this week -- typically precedes a spike in gas prices.

This is good news. More money for the Bush-Saudi crime family, and more incentive for suburbanites to get some exercise.

Too bad you can never trust Triple A.
