Wow, the beginning of this week gas in town was showing $3.43 per gallon at Safeway. Also there was an article in the news stating the reason for the gas prices dropping so slowly here is because of bulk storage.

Well tell me why then when I was watching the national news on tv last night 1-28-2015 they said for the first time in months the price of gasoline in the lower forty eight had gone up 1/2 to 1 cent per gallon in the last week, and today, 1-29 2015, as I drove by Safeway the price showing was up 4 cents per gallon to $3.47. Really?
