$2.52 thanks to a recent gas tax
The timing on the Harvey disaster is most unfortunate. There's never a good time for a catastrophic hurricane, but the entire country will be feeling the pinch at the pump right at Labor Day and that will impact the tourism industry across the board.Our local gas went up 22 cents in the last two days (from $2.17 to 2.39) and they're saying gas stations may run out. #ThanksHarvey.
Now all the 7-11s are out of gas.To get it back on topic, the 7-11 where I filled up had gas for $2.399, up from $2.179 a few days ago. The QT up by the interstate was already up to $2.499. I've heard rumors at work that prices are up to about $3 per gallon in some areas.
The usual Memorial Day profiteering. price dropped 20 cents/gallon between Friday and this morning.
