Gas Prices Predicted To Hit Record $4.25 High By Apri

Fox Charlotte -- Joe Cannamela says, “It affects everybody."
Cannamela is a hard working man. Three years ago the former long haul truck driver bought himself a limousine and started Bada Bing Limo Service. Now he says if gas prices shoot up as predicted, it will hurt at his bottom line.

Cannamela says, “$4.25 is gonna eat at mine, my clients lines."

The Oil Price Information Service expects gasoline to hit a record $4.25 per gallon by the end of April.

Right now Cannamela spends $30 to $50 dollars in gas per job, and he says if the prediction holds true that figure will rise.

Wells Fargo Economist Mark Vitner says the timing makes it even worse, “The run up in gasoline prices is occurring at a time when we're got very high unemployment and we haven't had a whole lot of income growth."

Oil is going to have to go much higher than 100-103 a barrel, more like 115-120 to get there.

Knew this ould happen sooner or later but why should our gov't care if the price of fuel,food and utilities goes up. It's only money. The Bummer gives it away to everybody else but won't do anything to help his own. Typical of his type, greed and lines pockets.

I can't understand why anyone would think that the gov't cares about their tax payers. Every time the gov't raised taxes, the standard of living goes down, the poorest of the poor get hit the hardest. The gov't is just too top heavy. There are too many pigs for the tits.

It's that time of the year and I wonder why CNN doesn't have the gas prices on the news prior to the last election.

All this crying is not helping one bit from what I`ve seen so far, looks like a lot of talk no action. Wait till your prices catch up to ours then watch the fireworks or tears.

Large speculators like Goldman Sachs & Morgan Stanley & hedge funds are WAY more to BLAME then the Pres. Oil companies or even OPEC. We have got to limit the positions they can take when they never even take delivery of the product.

Yes these prices are too high now. Can we get on with drilling here in the US, off shore and in Alaska? How about the Keystone pipeline? These things surely will lower the price of gasoline.
