The Presidential election for 2012 is now history.
Each campaign season we hear numbers thrown out about gas prices were this, mortgage rates were this, unemployment was this…etc. I decided to put somethings down in writing for my own verification in 4 years. While the numbers I find may not be the real numbers (who knows what’s real and what’s not anymore!), I think this will give me a truer idea of where things stood TODAY versus what they will be claiming in 2016.
I realize that this information is probably as subjective as any candidate’s declaration. However, hopefully we can return to these same sources in 3 or 4 years and see how things compare.
So here they are, with the source:
Gasoline prices (Denver Metro area) – Regular $3.37 (personal observation); average seems to be $3.46 from GasBuddy
