Even though Costco dropped, our local Shell and Chevron are hanging in at $4.45. Diesel is the bargain here at $4.49. It has not moved for a couple months.

It would be interesting if actual demand had ANYTHING to do with it

Let me know when you notice the streets and highways emptying.

> ...highways emptying...
I did notice yesterday on I70 to Columbus and today on I75 to and today to Cincinnati that people followed me in the right hand lane at my nominal cruising speed of 60/62 mph in 65 zones. I chalk it up to people saving gas by cruising a little slower when they're not in a hurry.

Gonna be more about combining trips when possible, just not doing one trip a week, things like that...but demand definitely will respond to the price.
Doesn't take much to back up product in the pipeline

Paid $4.43 for Chevron premium today. Regular is over $4 everywhere here now.

Sunoco at Rising Sun and Longshore:
Plus = $3.91
Premuim = $4.01
Ultra = $4.07
I keep my ride topped-off all the time nowadays! At this rate, it would cost almost $82 to fill my Cadillac DTS. We're driving the LaCrosse a lot these days as it takes RUG and gets the best fuel economy. We're all being ROBBED and are taking it like a bunch of cowering sheep!

Must be nice to have such CHEAP gas in Philly. You can pay over $5 for premium in San Diego city. RUG is up to $4.89 in places. The good news would be the price of diesel matching RUG at many stations. And I don't have anything but a diesel tractor.

paid 4.139 (credit) for RUG, taking 22.3 gallons for a nice total of $92.31.
At least the tank lasted a couple of weeks.
