Why are US gas prices rising 2019?
“High gas prices are eating away at consumer’s disposal income and could lead to a further economic downturn, especially for those whose livelihood depend on gasoline and diesel fuel.” Major Owens
Statistical data from the US Energy Information Administration (2019) show the following about rising US gas prices:
- Americans pay about $2.74 per gallon of gas.
- People living on the West Coast and in California fork out more for gas, paying around $2.97 or more per gallon.
- There was an 83% increase in gas prices overall, unless my fashionista math, which I use only for fashion shopping, are incorrect.
The impact of rising gas prices on fashionista spending
Every fashionista worth her salt knows that she has to pay dollars to get from fashion store to fashion store; from one fashion show to the other and that it takes gas.
These rising gas prices place a serious dent in the fashion budget. After all, a girl has to look great for every occasion.
That’s why she should check the balance on her shell gas gift card to make sure her gas tank is filled up and that she won’t break down during a fashion run.
