. . . I suggest that you do not read this Washington Post story. Exceptionally bleak.
BTW just curious-- how much is gas now where you live? D.C shot past $3 today for all fuels at most stations, with premium up to $3.24 at a few stations.
What's so funny is that local prices moved up so fast that they have yet to equalize. I saw one station today charging $3.05 for the cheap gas-- meanwhile the Sunoco right across the street was still charging $2.89. Something tells me that first gas station didn't make a dime today. Alas, won't last, though-- I expect everybody will be up, up, up in price by tomorrow. Good thing I filled up this past weekend.
You know what really worries me, however? What's the price for *natural gas* going to be soon? I fear that this winter's heating bills are going to make today's gasoline gouging look like rounding errors.
