Year after year, time after time, the gas goes up around the holidays (when the most people travel of course). Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. There's always a story. They're retooling for the summer blend. Recent unrest is causing uncertainty about oil prices. There's a refinery offline for maintenance and it's causing supply issues. They're pining for the fjords. Once the holiday passes the prices gradually settle back down. (I assume it has no relation to the presidential election price drop) I'm confident it's just an amazing coincidence, but still, it sure is funny, huh?
