Gas SpikeFebruary 1st, 2013 at 4:37 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, News, Weather
I’m sorry I didn’t get this on before the spike…I got this a couple days ago from Ed. I’ve been busy doing weather, so I hadn’t checked my personal email. He was dead on with the spike. Note the difference in “taxes and fees”. That’s a reason that you’ll find gas cheaper along I-75 when you drive thru Ohio.

Could a spike be in our future? We already had one this week, on an odd day, too since Tuesday and Thursday are the typical spike days. Two in one week are pretty rare, too. But as the market soars, so too will our prices rise. Be on the lookout for a spike in the next couple days unless the market takes a dive.”
