Gas prices hit high


Gas prices hit a four-year high in May, analysts with auto-industry analyst Edmunds recently announced.

Edmunds said the high followed a “three-year period of relative stability” and noted the national average had reached $2.90 per gallon.

Despite the rise in gas prices, the trend hasn’t had an impact on auto-sales trends.

“On the surface it may seem as though rising gas prices could be the catalyst to flip the market from SUVs back to passenger cars, like we saw in 2008,” said Jeremy Acevedo, Edmunds manager of industry analysis. “However, we’re in a much different climate than we were 10 years ago. The economic and market factors are so much stronger now that shoppers are likely to absorb these extra costs without changing their shopping habits immediately.”
