FuelMeUp.com: Summer Gas Prices on the Rise!
FORT SMITH, Ark., May 17, 2007 -- Gas prices have risen to
record levels in the past few months. Bill McClure, CEO of
http://www.FuelMeUp.com, predicts gas prices in certain
markets could rise to over $4.00 per gallon in the next few
weeks. "I see nothing in sight to slow down the increases in
gas pricing," McClure stated.
"We are seeing prices today vary from $3.89 in San
Francisco, California to $2.99 per gallon in Miami,
Florida," he added.
Many factors could drive prices even higher. The uncertainty
in the Persian Gulf, refinery capacity problems, the
approaching hurricane season, lower gasoline inventory and
high consumer demand will all affect summer gas prices.
Many FuelMeUp.com consumers are planning ahead by locating
the cheapest price of gasoline along their route.
McClure said, "Prices can vary as much as $.80 per gallon.
By using our website, consumers can save over $10.00 every
time they fill their tanks."
With Memorial Day approaching, many consumers are planning
to stay close to home visiting lakes and state parks.
FuelMeUp.com is a consumer-driven site to help visitors find
the lowest-priced gasoline in their city or zip code. The
site tracks gasoline prices in thousands of stations
nationwide and updates prices three times a day.
"It appears even with the record-high price of gasoline,
consumers still want to drive and nothing is slowing them
down," McClure stated.
