Yeah, the markets try to anticipate shortages, if they don't happen the prices drop back quickly.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Here they always blame it on switching over to summer blend fuel, though I'd think they'd have that pretty much dialed in after all these years.

I invaded Montana for a few days in my F150. Filled up from bone dry in Kalispell for $65 US./$87 Can.
I can't fill my truck here at home for $75 US / $100 Can.!

You can thank all of the socialists who insist on "free" stuff from your government. That "free" money has to come from somewhere.

I go over into Ohio and gas goes from $2.859 per gallon to $2.359 per gallon. The difference is all taxes.

Don't get used to it Skrap. The bill is deadlocked right now because they can't decide HOW MUCH to increase the gas tax. Dewine wants .11/.20 per gallon increase of gas/diesel. The senate passed a .06 last week. Dewine has to sign it Sunday to have it take effect 7/1. So this summer, you probably aren't going to see the relief from crossing the border that you are used to seeing.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.
