Gas Prices Jump Just in Time For Holiday Travel
Yesterday, I filled my tank for $3.10 a gallon. Miraculously, just in time for 4th of July holiday travel, nearly every station around Flint raised their prices to $3.55.
Happy birthday America.
In case you were wondering if they had a legitimate reason to raise prices, the price of oil and gas actually went down on the commodities markets yesterday.
When I went out for my informal photo shoot today, I did notice a major difference between yesterday and today. Yesterday, when the prices were low, gas stations had plenty of customers. Today, no lines, no waiting. Maybe it's a conspiracy?
