These gas prices are absolutely mad. I’ve definitely been seeing a welcome respite from some of the prices that were floating around the Murfreesboro area a couple months ago, but I guess I never really put two and two together to realize that they’re still higher now than they were last year at this time.
I guess I’m also pretty jaded about the price of gasoline at this point; despite the claim that we could see a fall in prices due to a larger inventory of gas, I don’t see the companies letting us get too close to Christmas without hiking up the prices. I do not believe I’m the only one here who’s pretty much counting on them to take advantage of the families traveling to visit relatives around the holidays.
That said, I’ll try and hope for the best regarding this supposed further fall in prices—and wouldn’t be surprised I we do see it for… about a week—and continue hoping for a future where we might see manageable prices again. I guess if that day doesn’t come around too soon, though, I’m still thankful for prices around $3.00 instead of $3.50, so it’s always good to see those too.
