She's real fine my $4.09!

Or, just when you thought it was safe to buy gas.....
After holding at $3.99 for two weeks, on Saturday morning our price for a gallon of Regular rose to $4.09. This after we thought maybe gas prices had stalled or maybe were even going to DROP. We're already higher than our peak price last year -- which was $4.05.
Which just goes to show that RUMORS about gas prices don't matter. The only sure thing is the price that gets posted out front for all our customers to see.
And although I applaud Management for holding at $3.99 since the end of February, I was surprised that the jump over $4 came in a 10-cent-per-gallon leap all at once.... Our price is also 16 cents per gallon higher than our competition across the street.
Other than that, Saturday was good -- lots of people out partying for the St. Patrick's Day holiday, but everybody seemed to be in a really good mood, no drunken craziness, and my choice of fairly-loud rock and roll on the store stereo possibly helped....
I have a feeling there will be more posts coming soon.....
Heard any good politicians' promises to cut gas prices lately? Pretty hilarious, huh?
