Default Gas Pains

Well, it'* been over a month since we last discussed the price of gas. In January, the price of gas dipped below $2.00 a gallon for the first time in a longgg time. Now the price of gas is going up again and I mean DAILY. Yesterday I filled the tank up at $2.079 per gallon. The very second I paid for my tankfull, the price was raised to $2.139 per gallon(how lucky can I get?). Today, I drive past the very same station and it'* up to 2.199 per gallon. WTF is going on here? Was there a hurricane in Gulf of Mexico? Was an Oil Tanker sunk in the Straits of Hormuz? This is getting nuts again.

Oh, and I'm just takling the price of Regular (87) Gas!

Regular is around $2.40 here also. Was $0.20 cheaper last week. Probably going to be $3 all summer again.

Gas hasn't been under 2.40 anywhere around me, so I guess I have a wee bit of sticker shock instore for me when I fill up tonight.
