That's a Gas
If it feels like gas prices are going up every single day, that's only because they are. AAA has a pretty nifty media site that displays gas prices for specific markets; you can see the cost of a gallon in Dallas at this very moment, yesterday, last week and last year. It also shows how Dallas compares to other cities in the state; Dallas rates the highest at $2.791 for a gallon of regular, with Texarkana coming in at the lowest at $2.610 for a gallon of the same. Dallasites last paid $2.61 for a gallon of gas during Clinton's second term, or thereabouts. --Robert Wilonsky
