Sunday’s gas prices in Arbela Township, Michigan
$2.39 for regular unleaded.
A week or so ago, I paid around $2.55.
I hope it continues. Would love to see gas dip to the dollar-and-change range again.
Back in 2006 in my hometown of Beeville, Texas, the then-county judge orchestrated an effort for people there to boycott Exxon gas stations until the prices dipped to $1.20 a gallon. It was considered more a publicity stunt than anything, considering the gas stations a) don’t really make money off gasoline and b) don’t really have control over the prices.
Besides the $4.35 I once paid last year for gas, the worst gas prices I’ve ever seen was in California. We moved from the Monterey Peninsula back to Texas in 1998, I think there was something like a $1.20 difference in gas prices. Some people say last year it got up to $5.00 per gallon and beyond in San Francisco.
