This past Thursday I filled the trusty F150's gas tank, paying $3.689 per gallon for the privilege.
This afternoon on my way home I passed by the gas station and saw regular had jumped to $3.919 per gallon. WTF?
That's a 23¢ per gallon jump in only 5 days.
Did I miss some earth-shattering news that caused oil prices to spike some time in the past few days? I know prices tend to fall after the summer season ends and then jumps up a bit when the refiners start changing over to making the winter blends of gasoline as well as increasing fuel oil and propane production. But what the heck?
