Gas prices spiking

As Wayan so smugly noted below this post, gas prices are up, and they’re up big. When I filled my tank on Friday on the way to work, I paid just slightly over $2.40 a gallon at the Shell in Shirlington.

On Friday night, I went to poker, passing the cheap station on route 7 by St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, where gas was $2.48/gallon.

On Saturday morning, on my way home from poker, it was $2.56/gallon.

Last night, coming back from Crosby, Stills and Nash, it was over $2.65.

People, what the fuck is going on here? This is ridiculous. Close to thirty cents a gallon in a weekend?! Time to whip out the gas dashboard widget.

I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
