Enjoy it while price of gasoline stays low
The malaise gripping the global economy has, for now, had one welcome side effect: gasoline prices that are less than half of what they were four months ago.
AAA of Kansas reports regular unleaded gasoline in the Kansas City, Kan., metro area averaged $1.763 per gallon on Tuesday, compared to an all-time high of $4.14 on July 17.
Now, we’re not about to sing “Happy Days are Here Again” — we’re still stinging from the hit our 401(k)s took a month ago — but isn’t it nice to be filling up the gasoline tank for less than $2 a gallon?
The low prices won’t last forever, so fill up the vehicles and take an extended ride. It just might take your mind off of other money matters.
