Well, it was nice while it lasted. It seems like yesterday the price of gas was well under $2 a gallon. Unfortunately, those days seem to be over...for now.

NJ.com reports that even higher gas pricing are looming on the horizon. According to Gas Buddy.com, the average for a gallon of gas in the state of New Jersey was up to $2.44.

Gas is up over 14 cents in the past month. I was so happy when $20 of gas nearly filled my car up. Now, I just get over a half a tank with the same $20. We could even get close the dreaded $3 a gallon by Memorial Day. Oy vey!

Get ready to pay more at the pump in 2017, folks.
