Comment on the January 28 posting: Two days after that posting, some places hiked to $1.95, others didn’t, which I think reflected my ambivalence. Eventually, everyone went to $1.95, but then prices started going back down.
Saturday, February 7, 2009, 9:30PM: I have a program on my computer called Kana Reminder that I can set different reminder messages. An annual message that comes up on February 1 is "Expect two months of gas price hikes", because that is what seems to happen every year. I am pretty sure we have a price hike coming on Monday, to at least $1.99, but maybe over $2, as NYMEX climbed at the end of the week, and AXXIS did even more, despite a calming of labor tensions with the refineries. Fill up late Sunday or early Monday if you can.
