Fuel from $150 per month to about $240 per month. All of this is directly related to the cost of gas. Lowering the cost of fuel should be any president's priority, IMO. Lower the cost of fuel and that could potentially free up $300-400 a month for my family. That's a lot of money that I could be pumping back into the economy! But I don't pretend that any candidate would do enough to make a difference in this regard.
Has you income kept pace? Just curious.
