Three dollars per gallon
Gas is already crossing the three dollar mark at some stations around here. I expect most of them to be charging that much for premium by the weekend. Mind you, they are charging this for gas that has already been paid for and delivered to the Northwest and is sitting in tanks and trucks down by the port. This is pure opportunistic gouging based on nothing more than the news that there will be shortages in the future. This is just a little extra profit to help with the executive Christmas bonuses. You can bet the retail prices will rise again when the actual wholesale price the stations are paying goes up.

How are prices where you live?
