When Gas below $3.00 arrived in my neighborhood, two of the three stations down the street were at $2.99. Shortly afterward, the rest of the stations joined them. The corner station peeked out of its trench into No Man's Land, but raised its price to only $3.01. By the next day, it had returned into its shelter at $2.99. Yesterday, I noticed all the stations had lowered their price to $2.97, another record low in the history of the blog.
Speaking of low prices, GasBuddy shows that my prediction that the national average for gas would remain above $3.10 is no longer valid. The national average is $3.03. I knew that would happen. Also, the Detroit average is $3.01. No wonder the local outlets dropped their prices. Somehow, I doubt they'll go to $2.91 soon, but $2.89 sometime in the next two months looks very likely.
