Comment on the April 24 posting: A week ago, I worried about a hike to $2.15. We got it this week in two chunks — first to $2.05 on Tuesday, and then to $2.15 today. Wish I had filled up this morning.
Friday, May 1, 2009, 3:30PM: I was surprised to check out gas prices at lunch today and see we hiked to $2.15. It actually fits the NYMEX price, but as we have been reporting, there had been a “Chicago discount” in the price of gas in the area during the early part of the spring that has now disappeared. So, I guess we’ll start fresh next week with our monitoring of wholesale and resale prices.
