I paid $3.66/gal a week ago in NJ. Glad I have a hybrid getting 36MPG. The SUVs getting 15 MPG have to be hurting.--

Ya, it's about $3.59/gal here in Billings. I think the cheapest is Town Pump which is $3.55/gal for mid.

the speculators always raise prices for the holidays. This year they got to blame it on a hurricane knowing that even after it blows through they can ride the high gas prices not only through the last big road trip holiday of the summer but also through the long distance trekking of bringing kids back to college.
They will excuse another price increase for the Thanksgiving-Christmas run too. Naturally like all fuel increases, the speculation is absolutely independent from actual demand or even projected demand.
