Drove over to Fox Lake for some boating this morning and received a shock. Last night, I noticed gas prices "down" to $3.87 after jumping 46 cents last Thursday from $3.54 to $4 (and they did that price increase in the space of a minute). Dropping 13 whole cents in three days is tantamount to something amazing.
I thought about filling up the '03 Malibu as we're going over to Libertyville tonight to see Mr. Myers do their trop rock/steel drum thing, but decided to wait and fill up today.
That was a BIG MISTAKE.
Gas this morning was now up to $4.20, a 33 cents jump!!
As I turned onto Holly Street to get to the boat, I saw the Citgo station on Grand Avenue had evidently not noticed and still had gas at $3.87 so did a quick turn-around in Hello Folks' parking lot and filled up before they too went to $4.20.
Somewhere, that terrorist's smile just got bigger.
