The latest gas prices have always been a pain in the butt.

Today, might be the day to just embrace it.

 

Gasoline is expected to jump 10 to 20 cents per gallon in the next several days, as rising oil prices and peak driving season are working to create a perfect storm for a big jump at the pump.

 

According to AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, 'The national average at the pump Wednesday was $3.50 per gallon for unleaded gasoline, up two cents from Tuesday's level.

 

Prices are already 30 to 61 cents higher per gallon than they were June 28, according to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst with GasBuddy. He notes, "Even if it were to stop where it is today, we're looking at a considerably sticker shock for people at the pump."
