Farnsworth is still yelling "Whee!"

I made a prediction yesterday in Professor Farnsworth likes yelling "Whee" on the gas price rollercoaster.
Year-over-year, the neighborhood prices are lower than they were last year at this time, when they fell from $3.29 to $3.27.  True, it's only two cents so far, but the window for this comparison lasts until a week from tomorrow.  Things could get much better in that time.
That was yesterday about noon.  About 5PM, I went out and saw that the corner station was at $3.24 and the three stations down the street were at $3.22.  Things have already gotten better, and the window of comparison is still open for another week.

I made another prediction.
[T]he Detroit average has fallen past the national average and is now only a fraction of a cent above $3.29.  The local stations can be as much as a dime below the metro area average, so $3.19 is not out of the question within the week.
If things go according to pattern, the corner station will match the rest at $3.22, which means that $3.19 is only three cents away.  Stay tuned.
