I've noticed lately, that, the price at the pump goes up, holds high for a couple days, go down a little for about 24 hours, then shoots up again, higher than what it was. It's been doing this now for 2 weeks. I have no idea when, or if, it's going to end.

When I went to the store this morning, it is $2.36 now.
Your right, it's been doing this for about 2 months here. Gas pump roller coaster.

Well, this morning, I was headed to work, and I saw several different prices for gas. I was really interested in seeing what the Admiral station was, as they "usually" are the last to raise prices, and the first to drop. Well, their price was $2.569/gallon US. However, the Clark station across the street apparently NEVER went up, and were doing land-run business with gas at $2.459/gallon US. A quarter-mile south, a BP station was completely vacant with $2.599/gallon US posted.

When I came home, most stations were at $2.569/gallon US, while the one Admiral station was now down to $2.459/gallon US, and the Clark station was unchanged.

I certainly can't understand what is going on, but I'm afraid there is going to be a real problem if prices don't settle down.I think we are all going to feel the pinch very shortly.
