OK we admit to REALLY liking the fact that gas prices have been steadily decreasing in recent weeks. Some stations here were as low as $3.23/gallon, excluding that 9/10 part, better than posted about in mid-June.
SHORT-LIVED joy, as THIS is what we saw at stations yesterday(Friday) in a 45-minute drive from our VA home to Pocomoke, MD.
It wasn’t a road trip; we were on our way to the closest Jeep dealership after getting a recall notice this week for our 2007 Liberty. It had to do with rear suspension control arms that “could fail” in 2004-2007 year vehicles.
We’re using this SUV for a road trip and NOT taking any chances on it being in that group. Good news is that the part would be replaced at no charge, other than time and costs to get there, and it included a FREE safety check too — always good BEFORE a trip
WHOOPS, forgot to add that on a day earlier on Thursday, the lowest price was at $3.23+/gal; and Friday a.m. the cost had JUMPED to $3.37+/gal. at these same stations on our route.
Same thing happening in your area — gas prices rising?
