US average gas price rises for first time in 99 days

“The historic streak of falling gasoline prices is over. After sinking every day for more than three months, U.S. gas prices edged higher — by a penny — to $3.68 a gallon, on average Wednesday, according to AAA. That ends 98 consecutive days of falling pump prices, the second-longest such streak on record going back to 2005. The last time the national average price for gasoline rose was June 14, when it hit a record of $5.02. Prices fell every day since then and Thursday would have marked the 100th straight day of declines.” (09/21/22)
