Anyhow back to the original question. Typically when a price spike like this occurs there has been some kind of disruption in supply. I could be an oil pipeline problem, refinery fire, refinery shutdown for maintenance, ...
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 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.
