Ya know, one day you think you’ve got the gas price thing figured out, and suddenly you’re wrong, and then suddenly, you’re really wrong.
Gas shot up 28 cents/gallon yesterday. On a Wednesday. In days not so long ago, gas went up on Tuesday. Lately, there’ve been some Fridays when it’s gone up, but never on a Wednesday.
So I picked my jaw up off the floor, and went home after working late last night. But wait — there’s more!
This morning when I went to work, the same station had dropped back to $1.619. Now there were a whole bunch of stations within a couple of miles of each other that were ranging from $1.569 to $1.799. I just don’t get it! 🙂
My guess is that someone, in their traditionally non-collusive manner, put the wrong date for the price hike on the memo, and not everyone got it right. I’m sure there’s a more official answer out there somewhere, but that’s the one I’ll stick with for now!
