And I said a couple pages ago it'd be $2.75 by Memorial Day. Well, good thing I'm not in the petroleum biz, ain't it? It's already $2.75 ... at the cheapest. Most of the name brands are $2.89 and climbing.

$1.08 (a litre) by my workplace. That's insane, I think.

$3.05 across the street from my store. Probably closest to the cheapest in town, too.

Turkey Hill, Palmyra PA : $2.899/g
Uni-Mart, Lewisberry PA : $2.949/g
Hess Express, Harrisburg PA : $2.859/g

Once it hits over $3/g here, I don't expect it to ever drop back down.

We're getting close to $3.00/gallon here, as both of the gas stations at 116th and Canyon Road were at $2.959 today. It cost me $43.00 to fill up the Equinox on Friday. Ugh.

It has been $2.89 for Exxon and $2.85 for Gulf since last Saturday. I'm actually surprised it hasn't moved.

Stumbled across this: http://www.gasbuddy.com/gb_gastemperaturemap.aspx

It's very illuminating to be able to see a graphical representation. I'm still not happy, but at least I can take comfort in the fact that my gas prices are in the middle of the pack. Still, how does Wyoming and Montana have the cheapest gas?!

With a quick glance of that gas map, it seems that most of the the "blue" stats are all $3 and over (orange and red on the map) and most of the "red" stats are less than $3 (yellow and green).

An interesting question to pose to those 'in the know':

Do big chain gas companies change their prices from their offices, or from some head office?

Reason I'm asking: en route home from my girlfriends' place...I passed a corner where there are three gas stations, all of which were closed (it was just past midnight).

Gas stations one and two: which were Shell and Esso, were at 109.9 or something like that. However, station number three( an independant station) across the street, was listed at 116.7.

How does it work? Are some signs controlled remotely? Locally? Does anyone want to take an educated guess?

I'm not "in the know" but the DC area TV stations always do a "why are prices so high?" piece every time the prices would jump.

According to the reports I have seen, the corporation owned stations are setting the price by zip (postal) codes and the independently owned franchises are under contract to set the prices according to the head office.

There was a story I need to dig up from last year. I think it was a DC area BP owner that tried to buck the "high" price of $2.50 a gallon last year and charged less. He was sued by BP and he tore down their signs and corporate logos and went independent.

I'll see if I can find it.

Actually, Zeruel, I'm more interested in knowing how they change their prices on their signs...if it's done at the station, or if it's changed from a corporate office offsite. In the case of the three in my area, the two corporate locations had digital signs, and the independant one had numbers that had to be manually taken down and changed.

Wow. I guess I totally misread that. I've seen them change prices here. They have this long stick with a suction cup-ish device and they numbers slide out from the side.

More and more places here are going digital for their "big boards" and I've seen their prices change almost ever few hours (I drive by one gas station four times a day for work).

Filled up on the cheap stuff at Shell yesterday for $2.879. Today, I drove past a dozen Shell stations in Rhode Island, some 40 miles away from another, and every single Shell had the prices as $2.999,$309.9,$3.219. Usually I'll see at least a penny or 2 difference at some station.
