According to US news reports, July 2, 2011, gas prices have increased over the  weekend in some cities in the US, as the national average gas price was still higher than last year’s, at $3.55 to $3.57 per gallon.

In Baltimore, gas prices continued to decrease to $3.50 per gallon. The unstable gas price had made customers reduce their shopping trips and look for cheaper alternatives like “car pools” or simply listing everything they need and then taking one trip to the stores to shop.

Reportedly, stores and other establishment have started to offer gas card deals to encourage customers to shop as usual. Stop and Shop offers points for gas discounts with every dollar purchase. If shoppers earn 100 points, they can save 10 cents per gallon on gas. Walmart, CVS and Kroger offer gas deals as well, through point accumulation when customers buy their products.

According to Walmart:

“The Walmart gas gift card is a great way to save on gas purchases! Get a 10 cent-per-gallon discount at any Murphy’s gas station when you pay with a Walmart Gift Card. Add any amount from $10 – $1,000. For orders of $250 and higher, or 25 cards and higher, we will send you an email about activating the cards.”

Further reports stated that gas prices may decline through the summer as economy in the price of crude oil stabilizes.
