Today, the three stations down the street lowered their prices to $2.93. That's a surprise, but at least it's not $2.91. I dodged that bullet by only two cents. I have until the end of this week to not have to eat my words on the price. As for the corner station, it's only a matter of time before it matches the rest.The real good news is that the corner station matched the rest at $2.93. The weasely good news is that the other didn't lower their prices to $2.91. The actual bad news, at least for my ability to prognosticate, is this:
As for what to expect next, GasBuddy shows the national average is still $3.03, but just barely. The Detroit average has finally fallen below $3.00 and is now just above $2.99. As George Takei would say, oh my! I might see $2.89 sooner than I thought.It arrived yesterday, as two of the stations down the street dropped their price for regular to $2.89 and for midgrade to $2.99. My wife filled up the new car with midgrade. Meanwhile, the sound you hear is me eating my words.
