Gasoline Sales Fall As Prices Spike

A report that tracks national retail and services sales shows that Americans are starting to drive less. Jim Hanni (HAY-nee) is with Triple A Kansas:

According to the report, which monitors spending at 140,000 service stations, gas sales have fallen for five weeks in a row. Another national survey also shows that about 70 percent of the nation's major gas station chains are reporting declining gas sales in conjunction with rising gas prices. Hanni (HAY-nee) says that the Kansas average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.66. Most analysts are predicting a four-dollar-a-gallon pricepoint before retail prices begin to level off.
