Driving home from being paged into work VERY early Tuesday morning, I suddenly realized that I needed gas. Fortunately, the cheapest gas station in my half of Los Angeles city proper is almost exactly between work and home and conveniently on the route that I drive.
I got to the station just after 1am and filled up my tank. I was happy, not remembering the last time that I had paid $2.29 for a gallon of gas.
Today, Thursday evening after the mid-term national election, I drove by that wonderfully inexpensive gas station on my way home. I then noticed something a little funny. Not funny-ha-ha, funny-weird.
Gas is now at $2.39 a gallon.
I think not.
