A Kansas City news station reported a 20-cent per gallon increase in the price of gas today and showed pictures of stations selling at $2.09. I scurried right out to Costco and filled up at $1.84. I suspect they will raise the price before they open tomorrow.
While at Costco, I picked up a roasted chicken for dinner, gifts for the two brothers-in-law and the man my mother married, and a gift for my sister. Four down, six more to go….

At the time of my wedding, gas here was $2.75. A week later when we got back, it was over $3.50!
It’s slowly dropped down, and I filled up for $2.06 per gallon this week.
I’d love to see it drop down below $2.00

Gas prices make no sense. Turns out that a major local retailer had cut their margin to keep the price down, and the smaller retailers were forced to do the same to compete. Bah.

I noticed that last night when I was out and about. I should have gassed up on Wednesday night when I was thinking about it. Oops.

This too will pass. I found that Tuesdays are generally the lowest prices of the week, at least at the QT.
