Drivers are paying an average of $4 for a gallon of gasoline for the first time. AAA and the Oil Price Information Service say the national average price for a gallon of regular gas rose to $4.005 overnight from $3.988. But consumers in many parts of the country have already been paying well above that price for some time.

 

Gas is expected to keep climbing, putting greater pressure on consumers and businesses, because the price of oil is soaring in futures markets. Light, sweet crude shot up nearly $11 a barrel Friday and approached $140 for the first time.

 

Along with higher fuel costs, consumers are also contending with higher prices for food and other goods because of rising transportation costs.

 

 

Un renforcement de l'attraction vers les centre-villes est à prévoir, à partir du moment ou' les meilleures jobs s'y trouvent, étant donné les couts de plus en plus grands des transports. De plus, une augmentation du travail à la maison, et augmentation des rencontres virtuelles, téléconférences, une diminution de la demande de voyages d'affaires et tourisme.

 

Qu'en pensez-vous?

c'est une bonne chose, finalement certains d'entre eux vont choisir des voitures plus économiques.

Et au Vénézuela genre 0,04$/l les chanceux!

 

Chanceux? Vraiment? Ils dilapident ainsi leurs richesses non renouvelables et hypothèque leur avenir. Avec Hydro-Québec, même si on vend l'électricité en bas de sa valeur réelle, ça demeure une ressource renouvelable.
