And that's a wrap, folks!

GasBuddy Blog -- The party is over, ladies and gentlemen. While I'm not sure what exact hour the national average will cease dropping at, the hour is coming close.

second station raised prices by 13 cents (first one was up a dime yesterday).
Filled up on the way home to take advantage of the (still) low prices at the other station(s).

A station where I reported $2.89 this morning (6:40 AM) jacked their price up to $3.15 (2:00 PM) in the afternoon!
Another station that had $2.99 gas yesterday is now selling it for $3.19.

These predictions do nothing to help the consumer and only serve to feed speculation! And might the coming holidays, with added family travel, account for the present situation?

Could it possibly because there is a holiday coming?
