Happy Gas Tax Day!
How are you going to celebrate? I think I'll grill a roll of $5 bills then blow the remains up with fireworks.
I think the gas stations around me played a price fixing game this last week... About 5 days ago there was about a 25 cent jump in gas prices overnight at pretty much every gas station, seemed odd at the time knowing the tax wasn't here yet, but now that the new 19 cent tax hit today the price didn't budge up or down, not even a penny of shift in price since yesterday, hmm.
**From some local social media, it's not just me noticing this, apparently a handful of local gas stations have jumped up in price to over $3, but most are still holding yesterdays price of about $2.75-$2.80.
Same here (St. Clair county). They jumped from as low as $2.469 up to $2.699 by Sunday (6/30). By Monday afternoon, most were at $2.899 and a couple were at $2.999.
