    Ah, but if oil prices stay low, gas prices will continue to drop until it reaches that same plateau. If prices stayed exactly as they are now, that would be "out of whack." But you can see on the gasbuddy web site that prices are continuing to drop.

    And remember, oil prices are a primary factor in gas prices, but not the ONLY factor.
    It's over. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    Very rarely does gasbuddy miss on a spike warning but oil prices have dropped big time since the warning so maybe that has pulled wholesale prices back???

    $2.99 gas allegedly available on the east side of Indy. It's a bit suspicious considering that the next lowest in all of Central Indiana is $3.06.

    Local Kroger markets, (King Soopers here) have a program that gives you one point on the loyalty card for each dollar spent in the stores which can be used at the participating gas stations in the form of 10 cents off per gallon for each 100 points accumulated in a month.

    I filled up with regular today for $2.779 per gallon.

    We do most of our shopping at Meijer, but we usually end up spending a little over $100 a month at Kroger. Just today we were $15 short of $100 for September, so I bought some Pepsi products on sale.

    All to save about $1.30 on a tank of gas that I'll have to drive a little bit out of the way to get because our Kroger doesn't have gas pumps.

    Don't judge me.

    Hovering around $3.80 for regular unleaded here in the Pacific Northwest. Been there for months.

    Still falling like a rock here. After I posted they had gone from 3.29 to 3.21 on 9-27, they fell to 3.17 and yesterday were down to 3.09 at my local Chevron station. It's even cheaper at Sam's Club and Kroger, but I don't buy there and so don't watch their prices.

    Just curiosity on my part...with little effort to distribute in the Houston area, why are gas prices there on par with the rest of the country??? You would think that even with a supply and demand model, distribution costs would be lower and thus, at least some dip in the overall cost. I'm not an economist so I am just curious on this one.

    And why does the price in NJ tend to run low, when they actually pump it for you?
    I'm from a place called the internet. Nothing disturbs me.

    Lots of things go into gas prices, including state taxes, competition, the cost of doing business, etc.

    NJ has one of the lowest gas taxes in the country. (PDF)

    Below $3.00 in much of Missouri.

    In beautiful Olathe, Kansas, still $3.07.

    NY RBOB gas futures for January shot up 6.9 cents today breaking a string of 4 straight down days. I am topping off tomorrow because I think the robber barons won't resist the chance to spike us before the holiday weekend.

    Our top 15 gas stations in the Greater Cincinnati area range from $2.99-$3.05.

    I feel bad for diesel users though. $3.75-$3.80 just a few weeks ago. Now there is not a price below $4.15.

    That would have nothing to do with being "robber barons."

    Some people take it as a given that prices spike before driving holidays, but there simply isn't such a pattern. Sure, we notice when prices spike before holidays, but we never seem to notice when it doesn't, or else we simply forget.

    That said, there might be a spike today or tomorrow. But Thanksgiving wouldn't be the reason.

    I'm just saying a 6.9 cent gain in NY RBOB gas futures may be enough to spike if the Chicago RBOB followed suit. Not like it hasn't happened before. As for the holiday weekend, timing is everything.

    Until the price gets back to supply and demand I will call them my pet names.

    Ren doesn't consider it a true Price spike if it's under a quarter... he lives in Indy.

    I've read recently that apparent incongruity between oil and gas prices are due to using the wrong oil prices (WTI instead of Brent). And lately, Brent has trended well above WTI.

    Headed to Fargo today. Hopeful that I can get to Minnesota to gas up. 3.50 here...cheaper in MN., and even less in ND.
    Saving on the way, not so much on the way back.

    Could use her... my back went out the morning we got up to attend Dan's funeral down here in St. Pete and I'm still laid up. `Bout ready to chuck it and agree to a week in traction.
