Fuel Prices Trending Up for Easter

Just in time for Easter and for the first time in recent memory, there is a uniform increase in fuel prices. The latest price increase takes effect at midnight tonight, just before commuters take to the highways for the Easter break. The additional General Sales Tax on kerosene has not come into effect, but prices are set to rise by twenty-four cents from six dollars, thirty-one cents to six dollars, fifty-five cents. Premium gasoline goes up from eleven dollars twenty-four cents to eleven dollars thirty-nine cents, an increase of fifteen cents. The biggest bite goes to regular gasoline which is now ten dollars and sixty-one cents. That is an increase of forty-three cents from the previous total of ten dollars and eighteen cents. And diesel goes up from nine dollars eighty-eight cents to ten dollars and thirteen cents, an increase of twenty-five cents. So if you can, fill up before midnight and save yourself some cash.
