According to the AAA Fuel Gauge Summary report for September 9, 2011, the national average price of regular gasoline increased from $3.658 a week ago to $3.660. This is a increase of $0.002 in 7 days.
We are now in the period which, under current law, will determine the COLA amount for next year.
I will post the price of gasoline each Friday through the end of September.

One commenter asked us to put a graph showing gas prices, and I said I’d give it a try. Here it is.
I don’t think I’ll do the graph again. It doesn’t seem to me that gasoline prices will end up having that much of an affect on the overall CPI-W.
