I thought I was getting screwed yesterday when I bought a tank of gas at $2.79/gallon because they had just jumped from $2.59. Today I saw prices from $3.00 – $3.19 (one crazy station in Sicklerville was selling for $2.89 and it was jam packed with SUVs).
I suggest filling up your cars today if you’re going to need to drive a lot this weekend. My prediction is that by Monday we’ll be up to $4.00/gallon for regular.
Of course, it’s the people of Louisiana who are really in bad shape. Donate to the Red Cross if you’d like to help.
