Thursday I bought gas ten cents cheaper. By evening, regular was $3.16.9/gal. Today I saw $3.15.9.
Why the drop? Dunno. As usual though, I always have speculation. I heard that the annual conversion from summer to winter gas is going surprisingly well this year. Perhaps there is still a reserve of summer gas that needs to be dumped. It's been warm for two weeks -- this weekend is the first time the highs will be in the 40s since early May.
The question is, how long will this trend continue? At this rate, gas could be $2.99.9/gal in two weeks. I'm not holding my breath, but these things do happen... oh wait. 2014 midterm elections coming. Gas prices have to come down so the mob doesn't think to vote in someone who might offend Business. Happens every two years.
By that reckoning, we'll enjoy lowered gas prices until the November election. (evil-grin)
UPDATE: Mrs. Dr. Phil informs that as of 5pm Saturday, gas is #3.11.9 in town, except for Admiral which was $3.10.9/gal. The trend downward marches on...
