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?
