Pain at the pump

Get ready 'cause here it comes.
I'll be talking about gas prices during the first hour of the PhilCast today because we're about to take a double hit at the pump.

First of all, spring is nearing, a time when the people who produce our gas have to switch to a summer blend, another way of saying they make the 'good stuff' that's more expensive for us to use.

Second of all there is the little matter of Iran, all into a tizz and pulling the plug on the Brits and the French...something about some fighting over 'alleged' nukes they're working on. 

Look, the bottom line here is that this one-two punch for us could mean that the average price of a gallon around here this spring could hit $4.25, and that would be a record.

TV news today too...from SNL to the Colbert Report and more.

Talk to you at 3-ish.
