# 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."

I think the % is a little more than 1.38, but then I am no 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%.

Wrong again! A 138% increase, one hundred thirty eight percent increase 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.
