Some First Hand Reporting On Gas Prices

I have been watching gas prices fall the past few weeks, wondering whether they would hit below $2 a gallon in my area. Prices the past week leveled off and even ticked up a bit, settling between $2.12 and 2.22 according to the part of town where the stations were located. I heard a news report that OPEC would be decreasing production by a million barrels a day so I expected to see rising prices this morning. Instead, though, the station near my house that had gas at $2.22 yesterday dropped overnight to $2.15 today. That was a nice surprise that I guess I should enjoy while it lasts.

Yesterday I drove past a small gas station/country store about 15 miles from my house. I was shocked to see the price of regular gas at $1.65 a gallon. Premium was $2.05. I wondered if the store was open, or if it had possibly been closed a while back, with the ancient gas prices frozen there in time. The lights in the store were on though and it appeared to be open, but did not look like it enjoyed much traffic. I was on my way to an appointment and did not have time to stop and ask, but I noted that it was a Citgo station. I wonder if the boycott of Citgo stations had anything to do with the rock bottom gas prices. The next time I am in that neck of the woods I will make it a point to stop and ask. I would love to know if any Wizbang readers have noticed any change in traffic and/or prices at their local Citgo stations? And since I am asking, what is the cost of a gallon of gas in your neck of the woods?
