    Meanwhile, gas prices in my area have risen 20 cents in the last week. What the fuck is going on here?

    It takes awhile for the oil to be processed into gasoline. I expect to see them drop in the next couple of weeks.

    Gas dropped anwhere from .02 to .10 at stations I've seen on my drive to the office this week.

    I was, frankly, stunned.

    Gas hovering around $2.30 late last week here. Today the station across the street from my apartment is down to $2.23. It's steadily falling, but there'll be another sharp rise between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Prices at my favorite station in Microville are up .10 this week and .06 in the past three days, and already higher than the so-called national average.

    Hey, it went up to 2.35 in Michigan. It'll probably go down about 20 cents in the next week, with the bulk of that drop coming after Turkey Day.

    Hell, I thought it would be $5 a gallon the week after the election, based on what I read here.

    Silly me.

    Yeah, it definitely went up where I live. Happened right after the elections, too. Shocker.
