No coincidence at all that 13 of these 15 cities are in GREEDway/Speedway-dominated areas. Nah, none at all....

Rap: that's not good. Means, eventually, it'll trickle down to the rest of the country. Right now, diesel and gasoline closed the 50 cents gap down to 20 cents since gasoline prices rose steadily lately.

isn't it interesting that some of the states closest to oil production have often the highest increase when prices go up?

Surprising, prices around my area have been stable for almost two weeks now. Varying by two cents up and down.

Not sure if I understand this article completely. Are they saying this is the price increase since the beginning of the year or the highest one-day jump? We routinely see spikes of at least 30 cents and 50 cents is not uncommon. If we have had a 60-cent spike this year, I wouldn't be surprised.

Just saw a $0.02 "CRASH" in gas prices.

Guess we'll be seeing a $0.10 "EDGING UP" of gas shortly.

Caro, MI 2014

Lowest Feb 5, $3.08

Highest March 29, $3.85

It's Up and Down like a YoYo with .40 cent swings upwards/a penny downwards

The farther North you go the higher the price.
