The national average price for a gallon of regular self serve gasoline has increased 50 of the last 56 days, and went up 42 cents from the summer low of $3.33 on July 2, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

Some states – Hawaii, California, Washington, Oregon and Connecticut are paying more than $4 a gallon.

In the Bucks and Montgomery Counties, the average price for self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is $3.803 per gallon, which is up 1.5 cents from a week ago, 16.9 cents higher than a month ago and 15.6 cents higher than a year ago.

AAA, however, predicts prices will start to decline again after Labor Day.

Locally, the cheapest price for regular is $3.90 at Ferino Bros. Service on Windy Bush Road.

While it is high, those who can't afford what they drive will complain the loudest. Live within your means and you will come out on the other side just fine.
