Gas pricing is strange.

 What the heck is going on with gas prices?

I recently paid about $5.80 per gallon, which about 2 weeks before I paid about $6.09 per gallon and 2 weeks before that I paid about $6.49 per gallon.

Today I drove down hiway 145 into madera, and there is an EZ Trip gas station advertising gas at $4.75 per gallon. WTF?? This station had a grand opening 1 week ago, so that could be why that is. Don't know.

1/2 mile down the road is a chevron station advertising gas at $5.49 per gallon. WTF? That is a $0.75 cent per gallon difference. !WTF!!

Went to the valero about a mile away from me, both the valero and sinclair are at $5.39 per gallon.

But at least we don't got no mean tweeters out there.


  1. Corporate owned gas stations almost always charge significantly more for gas than the independents. Why that is can be debated
    but it's been that way as long as I can remember.

    1. That's true. Chevron especially. I think $4.75 was just a grand opening special. I'll be that way sometime this week and see if i is still that low.

  2. did you ever in your life think you would long for $4/gal gas??

    1. I just told my brother in Texas that very thing!
