Gas Prices Creeping Up
In Northern Virginia the "fair" price has gone up from $3.68 to $3.73. As mentioned, two weeks ago, gas was available for 3.14 in Roanoke, and in the 3.30's up I-81. So it will be interesting to see if this bump also occurred down there. If not, that would certainly be indicative of something. And even if prices down there have risen by 5 cents, it seems obnoxious for the DC area to be maintaining a 50-plus cent spread. I.e. They can get away with letting prices fall more slowly than elsewhere, but should they really be maintaining that spread?
