I. Cannot. Believe. How. Fast. The. Gas. Prices. Are. Rising.
There are two gas stations at the main intersection just west of my house. One is a Shell station and the other is an Arco station, which doesn't take credit cards, so its prices are always 4 - 10 cents cheaper than the Shell station's prices.
Last night, when I drove past the Arco station, the cheapest gas was up to $4.31 a gallon. Today, at 3:15 pm, it was at $4.34 a gallon.
Exactly one hour later, the price at the same gas station was $4.38. It's making last year's shock at a gas station in the middle of nowhere charging a dollar per gallon more than everywhere else seem like a happy dream.
When will it end?
