Oil prices are spiking a bit this week. If prices at the pump increase into the travel season it will be interesting to see if consumers change their travel plans. Oil prices are still no where near what they were several years ago. I think the savings at the pump over the last few years has been an afterthought when evaluating the continued economic strength. Remember the $600 “tax stimulus” from President Bush? That was pocket change compared to what drivers have saved since 2015. I also think states missed an opportunity on fuel taxation. They could have really helped themselves out by levying a little more in fuel taxes. I will be traveling next week so no links.
