Even if gas prices in the USA have fallen a little bit compared to this time last week, that doesn’t mean it is cheap to fill up your car or truck.
Visiting the pumps to fill up the tank of your vehicle is still a very expensive endeavour as a result of the high inflation that has been witnessed across the country over the first half of 2022.
