Gas went up; diesel went down

The Shell station gouged +18¢ for gasoline as I reported earlier. Then they did something odd: they slipped -16¢ for diesel.

Hurricane Gustav is all but a memory and yet the price gouging continues as of late this evening. Of course the stations around here may simply want to make an extra buck from Hurricane(?) Hanna. I’ve already got enough diesel to take my RV on the road tomorrow if it decides to pummel my town.

Even if Hanna peters out, we’ve got a few other storms brewing on the Atlantic. My hunch tells me the stations around here will continue to gouge on gasoline for another two weeks…
