I seen a national news article about gas prices bottoming out. Prices less then $3 a gallon. Michigan was $2.55 we are still 3.40 a gallon here. I want to know why! Gas is at a national low. I want a better price.

North Carolina sucks. Ours is still over 3 bucks too. And recent discussions about how to fund improvements to roads mentioned "oh we haven't raised the gas tax in years!"

Funny how South Carolina has cheaper everything and plenty of industry, tourism, tech and universities, and everything else you can think of.. while their cost of doing business is less, and their gas is always cheaper by a lot :mad:

3.28 a couple days ago in nearby small town, usually a bit cheaper in the shopping town 10 miles down the road from there. Might be lower now, but I won't know til I go shopping. We're usually higher than the national average.

That $2.55 in Michigan was just due to a short lived "gas war" between a couple of stations in my hometown.
I now live 40 miles away and the lowest it got here (on that same day) was $2.89.

Now it's back up to $3.26 as of yesterday afternoon.

All about bi polar pricing. Boy oh boy. Your pricing sounds like my dd before aunt flow comes to visit.

It bumped under $3 a gallon for a full 24 hrs here....was $2.93 on Monday. Back up to $3.19 the next day....still up. DH filled my car and this month's gas can on Monday! Never works out like that for us...usually we miss the low price by a few hours.
