RE: O/T: "Hello"

On 01/23/2015 the price of gas was $2.19/gal.
On 02/25/2015 the price of gas was $3.03/gal.
Let's see, that's an $0.84/gal increase in 33 days.
$3.039/$2.199 = 1.38% increase
As the lyric from an old show tune goes, "nice work if you can get it, and you can get it if you try."

mathematician. Maybe that is the new math. I get 38% increase, but again, I am an amateur.

Better try again, Lew.
3.039 - 2.199 = 0.84 0.84 / 2.199 = 0.38
G. Ross is right -- the increase is 38%.

would be about $6.67. A 100% increase would be double.
The correct formula is 2.199 + 38% = 3.034

Let's see, that's an $1.06/gal increase in 36 days.
$3.259/$2.199 = 1.482 increase if you want a budget item

No, that is actually a 1.06 increase....as you first indicated in the sentence above the last. You are only talking dollars up to this point.
Now if you said a "1.482 "Percent"" increase, you would then be correct.
