With the status of the world’s economy on the constant decline, gas prices have seemed to be traveling in the opposite direction.
Despite the lack of money in the pockets of people everywhere, consumers are expected to spend more cash on the rising cost of gasoline.
According to the Washington Post, gas prices remain high in the West because of the rising tension over Iran’s nuclear program.
This means that the United States’ conflict with the Middle East is causing more problems here in America.
Similarly, the price of gas is expected to break the record for the highest recorded cost-per-gallon sometime within the next two years.
