WTF? Gas Prices!
Did I miss something? Is there a holiday coming up this weekend, outside of Valentine’s Day, you know the type of holiday when you generally travel and gas price magically jump just before the travel season.
I ask this with such confusion because when I came to work yesterday morning I noticed that regular unleaded at a certain gas station was $2.99 a gallon.
Not the best price, but what the hell it’s been pretty steady at that price.
As I am going to get my son last night and stop at the same said gas station to slam a little petro into the old Tahoe, imagine my surprise when I see that regular unleaded is $3.05 a gallon.
A six cent increase in a matter of hours. I can hear those groaning now, jezz Gallagher it’s only six little cents, I get that, but six little cents adds up when you fill up.
My bigger question is why?
Why in a matter of 8 hours did the price just jump by six cents?
Was there suddenly a shortage?
Did the price of crude oil go up?
Did Saudi Arabia decide they just want to F with us so they jacked the price?
Can somebody tell me why the increase?
Where do uuo gas up and what is the price?
My husband always uses gas buddy to search for the cheapest price!
