Fuel at the pump up again

The cost of living is one of the biggest factors for voters going into elections. Well, that’s gone up more because to start the work week, drivers were greeted with a hike in prices at the fuel pumps that took effect on Sunday night. Today premium gasoline is selling for eleven dollars and fifty-eight cents, reflecting a thirty-six cent increase. Regular also went up thirty cents, bringing to the price to eleven dollars and twelve cents. Meanwhile, the price of diesel saw a miniscule four cent decrease and is now at ten dollars and forty-five cents. The first price increase of the year was less than a month ago on January seventeenth.
