For almost two years, I've been documenting gasoline prices every month at the same station here in Sarasota. It seems we're seeing an upward swing right now. Prices have gone up 14-cents since December. One year ago, prices were 6-cents cheaper, which seems a bit hard to believe. And, that's one of the reasons I've been committed to this monthly exercise. With so many other things to think about, it's difficult to remember month-to-month and year-to-year where gas prices have been.
In other news, Nik Wallenda will walk over U.S. 41 on a thin high wire at 11 a.m. today in downtown Sarasota. It's going to be quite an exciting day. Godspeed, Nik!
