Gary Strauss of USA Today reports that:

The recent run-up in gasoline prices will make the Fourth of July weekend the costliest for motorists since 2008. Prices will average about $3.68 a gallon for regular grade gas, up 17 cents from last year but well below the all-time $4.11 record set just after July 4, 2008.

Making it, of course, more expensive to hit the road and get out of town for the long weekend. These are, we are told, non-inflationary times we are living through. So it is only the things that you can’t live without that are getting more expensive.

Funny how that works.
