So the other day gas prices jump 20 cents over night. And I needed gas, so had to pay $3.40 a gallon for 87. Today, prices dropped 12 cents. $3.28. What the heck.

I feel like this is all a game that is aim to see how much you can make a customer panic. If gas prices start going on a consistent upward trend, the people will run gas stations because they believe that will be the cheapest they will get gas for. What I find funny is that this happened on a Sunday. WHats gonna happen tomorrow when the markets open?
