Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Jul 7th, 2008 2:45pm

Are you planning to take a road trip over the Fourth of July weekend? How much do you expect to spend on gas? I spent nearly $60 to fill my tank last week, a painful increase from a cost that used to hover around $20 just a few years ago.
