    Our gas prices jumped by 20 cents November 7th. Did this happen around the nation?

    Yup....the WVSP needs the money to fund our trip to the sun. We'll have to take our chances and travel there before it sets in the west, because our spacecraft doesn't have any headlights, and we can fly in the dark, ya know?


    BTW, I don't think they have jumped here yet, but I am sure they will. It's amazing how oil gets cheaper before an election, and how higher it gets after it's over.

    I don't even know. So many of our stations took down their prices because they don't have gas.

    Gas is always higher where I am at. We live out in the middle of nowhere. I was just in Alamogordo and Roswell and gas there was as low as 3.19 and 3.15 a gallon. But as close as 30 miles up ther interstate in Gallup it runs about 3.39. New Mexico is weird.

    Not that this has anything to do with the thread, but I lived in Albuquerque as a young child for a few years. My Dad worked for Sandia Corporation doing something with nuclear weapons. Have you ever taken the tram to Sandia Crest?

    I had meant to post this a couple of weeks ago. I fill up about every 2 weeks. Gas prices in Minneapolis.

    First week of October: $3.79
    Third week of October: $3.09
    Yesterday: $3.39

    I can find no reason for these fluctuations being related to the price of a barrel of oil.

    Gas prices on the Left Coast are the lowest in 2012. One would expect gas prices to jump in the "Sandy" states.

    Our prices probably dropped because gas consumption dropped on the east coast.

    I don't remember two major storms hitting NY/NJ in less than two weeks. Good thing there isn't any climate change going on or it might be three major storms in three weeks.
