Via MarketWatch: Yikes. "Gas prices will jump 40% for the summer driving season compared with 2010, according to a federal projection released Tuesday. Retail prices for a gallon of regular-grade gasoline will average $3.86 from April through September, up from $2.76 for the comparable period last year, said the Energy Information Administration, the statistics arm of the Department of Energy." Here's a tip from AAA. "A AAA spokeswoman lowered her driving speed by 5 miles per hour during her daily commute on the highway. The result? She gained about 15 miles from a tank of gas in her small sport utility vehicle." [Marketwatch]
