Its that time- time for a rise in gas prices.
Hurricane Rita was thought to have caused minimal damage to the oil refiners in the Gulf. As I said on Sunday, we didn’t see an initial Monday rise, but I predicted that it would take until today for all the bad news to surface- and it did.
I also find it very odd that the Speedway up in Comstock Park raised prices to 2.819 already. Its also odd, that upon checking the Speedway I used this summer in Sandusky, Ohio, that their price today was also 2.819. This leads me to believe that the owner of the Comstock Park location actually got the news to rise one day early, since no other Speedway hiked their prices yet.
This leads me to believe that we will see (and according to the wholesale market, we are due…) a price hike tomorrow or late this week to 2.819 area. If it doesn’t happen tomorrow, I will be suprised. Tomorrow is also the date of either very good news or very bad news from the Dept Of Energy’s Weekly Petroleum report. That could either send wholesale gas prices down, or up. In my experience, after a hurricane like this, the DOE report is BIG STUFF.
I would make sure that you’re over a half tank . Please heed to what people are saying- CONSERVE GAS.
***WE, the United States Citizens get to set gas prices!! If we use less gas, the price will be less! So why drive unless absolutely necessary?
