The Gas Station Stock Market Syndrome!
I have to laugh at myself! I'm driving up and down James Street all the time. I pass my favorite Chevron Station. I look to see the price of the gas. Hmmmm...$2.09! Hmmmm....should I buy now, or wait til the price drops! Hmmm...I think I'll hold. My gas tank light has only been on for a day! I can hold off!

It's like the cotton pickin' stockmarket!

I am driving myself nuts!

I think a lot of people are playing that game right now.

I love my recumbent bicycle

We hit $1.87 at the Hess station yesterday and I told my husband "I'm going to fill up when it hit's $1.85.
It is just like the stock market!
It is nice to see it coming down for a change.

Yeah, here, as of yesterday, gas was between $1.58 and $1.59! I need to buy some gas containers so I can stock up...

We just hit $1.40.

When I lived in Michigan a few years ago it was the weirdest thing I ever saw. There were constant price wars and the prices would go down every day for about a week or so, then overnight jump up 10-15 cents, then go down every day and jump up again. THAT was like playing the stockmarket, trying to guess which day it was at the lowest price before it went up again.
