Every time I’m at the pump filling up the tank I’m reminded that gas will never be cheap.  And here in Western New York prices are higher than the average.  This morning the cost had risen by about five cents. The average cost per gallon is now $3.848 in Erie and Niagara counties according to the American Automobile Association.  That’s up from a week ago.  I guess by now we should be numb to the price of gas right?
