$0.22 jump today to $3.34 is this a result of Sandy or Obama's re-election?

Ours jumped $0.35 the morning of the election to $3.49, so it's Sandy related.

$3.19 - $3.25 roughly in Chesapeake, VA. Down from the $3.(6)(7)(8)x of pre-Summer.

But when I go to DC I see $5.xx all the time, even in Arlington.

The only $5+ gas I've ever seen in the area is the Watergate Exxon at Rock Creek Park & VA Ave. They are always $1-$1.50 more than everyone else.

I've never seen $5 gas in Arlington. They always have cheaper gas than us in MD because of their lower gas tax.

Generally you'll only see rates that bad near a rental car return by the airport, or if someone has the only Chevron in an area where a large business is filling up with that type of credit card. I wonder which one is in play where you are seeing it for 5?

Neither. There are no airports in the DC city limits, nor is it the only station in the area. It (2708 VA Ave NW) is $5.299 right now and it is across the street and up a bit from a Sunoco (2643 VA Ave NW) that is $3.699.

They have been interviewed many times about their prices and the owners always say it is gas supplier that forces them to charge so much.


    Click Here (washingtonpost.com)Surely, I think, the new owner can tell me why gas is so expensive. But it turns out there is a rather tortured recent history to the Watergate Exxon. The person who bought it three years ago is Eyob “Joe” Mamo, the gas station king of Washington, who is either a shining immigrant success story or a cutthroat monopolist.

    Just because Mamo owns the station doesn’t mean he runs the station. It is operated by the same outfit that operated it in Exxon’s day: Metroil Inc., a company run by a man named Roland Joun.

    Joun is unhappy that he was not offered the opportunity to buy the station and so he sued Exxon. He lost, appealed, then, just last month, lost the appeal. Joun has a contract to operate the station and must buy his gas from Mamo.

    Says Mamo: “In my opinion, in protest of the fact that he did not buy the station he jacked up the price significantly.”

    And then I do hear from Roland Joun, who tells me Dan Gilligan is right: He doesn’t want to sell much gas. Joun is locked in a mortal struggle with Mamo, whom he accuses of jacking up the wholesale price he must pay. (Mamo denies this.)

    Joun says the more gas he sells, the more money he loses.

    “I’m going to be charging six or seven dollars, whatever it takes to let me stay in business,” Joun says. “The only way I can recoup our rate is to sell less volume and make more money.”

    If Joun does charge $7 a gallon, the Watergate Exxon may get even more famous.

After staying around $3.29-$3.34 siince the election, back down to $3.05 today. And then there's this:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/09/travel/gas-prices/index.html?hpt=hp_bn1

CNN) -- Gas prices have plummeted 46 cents a gallon over the past two months, according to a survey released Sunday.

"This has been a true price crash," said Trilby Lundberg, publisher of the Lundberg Survey.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.38, down nearly a dime over the past three weeks, Lundberg said.

"This crash began back when refining problems around the country were being fixed, one after the other, at the same time that our seasonal gasoline demand was shrinking," she said.

Crude oil prices have also dropped after having risen steadily.

Prices at the pump should drop even more in the coming days, as refiners cut how much they're charging distributors and retailers, Lundberg said.

The national average is about 8 cents higher than the average a year ago.

The survey tallies prices at thousands of gas stations nationwide.

Long Island, New York, had the highest average in the latest survey, at $3.85. The lowest average was in Memphis, Tennessee, at $3.04.

Here are average prices in some other cities:

• Boston - $3.59

• Baltimore - $3.34

• Atlanta - $3.27

• Baton Rouge, Louisiana• - $3.11

• St. Louis - $3.05

• Salt Lake City - $3.40

• Los Angeles - $3.68

You live near the edge of the world, shipping costs are high.

I live in the middle of the country, there's no reason it should be $3.09 at this point. It'll probably go up tonight or tomorrow, just in time for the students to come back to town.
