Well, after the price jumping from $2.609 to $2.689 on Monday, the price fell to $2.639 Wednesday afternoon at the Race Trac where I get on the interstate for my commute to work. This is after a steady decline for three weeks.

I think the gasoline suppliers, whether it be the stations or the post refinery distributors were just using the Hurricane Erin and Hurricane Dean excuse to raise the price. But we all know that there is no immediate affect on supply. The affect comes much later. Yes there has been flooding in Houston, but the refineries there have implemented special flood proofing measures to guard against flooding during such hurricanes and other storms. Also, the affect was minimal because of the hurricane's paths. None of the excuses held up.

Yakima Washington area cheapest is Costco at $2.69. Chevron $2.85. Diesel $3.09. Six weeks ago diesel and regualr unleaded were the same price?????

I am like the rest of you I like to know what fuel prices are all over but I am about to give up checking and slow down (mph). In this day and age the cheapest fuel is the fuel you Don't use. I have a relative who pulls a 25' Safari with a 3/4 ton Ford RC 4X4 V-10 gas Automatic Transmission. He just got back from a trip to North Carolina with some interesting documentation on fuel mileage. HE is an engineer....and keeping accurate records of things is in his blood so I believe what he tells me. He was in a hurry to get there from Spokane Washington To Charlott NC. Anyway to make a long story not so boring..lol. Driving hard....speed limit and beyond to get there for a funeral...he Averaged 8.9 mpg. Comming back He took his time and did a lot of sight seeing and maintained NO more and 60 mph and HE told me his basic speed was 55 mph on the interstates when He could do it without getting run over. HE averaged 12.3 comming home. Now this is in an 2008 Ford with a gas V-10. NOT bad for a gas motor. His best day was accross the mid west at night with NO traffic on interstate 80 He aveaged 14.1 for the day. Just shows ya....you can slow down and get food fuel mileage with gas motors pulling and AS.
