I go out of town for a week, and gas prices go crazy. What are we doing at $1.69 a gallon? Well, it looks like two things happened. One, futures prices shot up somewhat late last week. Second, it seems like the full 10-cent Chicago Summer Premium is back. (Trying to get a handle on the extra money we have to pay for gas in the summer is really a challenge.) I’ll add that today’s Wall Street Journal has an article about a new squeeze in gasoline supplies, because gasoline demand (and it appears, the economy) is picking up in the second half of the summer. This is beginning to look like a bad month for filling up. More on Monday.
