Did a little trip to West Texas last weekend and pricing was $1.649 to $2.299.
We're hanging right around $2.00. Some days a little more, some a little less.
The cheapest I've seen lately near me in central Ohio is $1.92. Not complaining when it's under two bucks a gallon.
Prices are all over in the last week or so. 7-11 and Shell jumped to $2.25. Murphy's is still at $1.99. Wa Wa is $2.19. Sheetz is $2.21 and Valero is $2.22. In the courthouse area 10 miles south prices are $2.25.
Prices are almost back to pre-pandemic levels here.
I just saw $1.819 for regular yesterday. Gas Buddy shows it's as low as $1.619 some place here in central Ohio.
I am thinking that there was probably a lot of speculation that hurricane Delta would cause a lot of additional infrastructure along the Gulf coast just as hurricane Laura several weeks ago. Infrastructure issues with the electrical grid could cause problems for pumping stations on the Colonial pipeline that originates in Louisiana. Any mention or thought that something could interrupt flow along the Colonial pipeline (true or false) causes price spikes for those retail outlets in the S E USA served by the pipeline. But no reported problems so the speculation was short lived.
