Our local pumps have had a price of 128.7 per liter for approx. 2.5 Months or more. Even tho we have had 2 long weekends in that time...May Long Weekend (Canada) and July 1st.

Anyone who drives knows that prices at the pumps jump on the Thursday or Friday before a long weekend. Here? No change whatsoever.

I talked to the local station owner and asked what was happening and was told that they had no notice from head office (it's a franchise) and that the office changes the prices on all stations in their group from a central command...nothing. No movement. They are also a little confused.

This is a first from what I can remember. Is this happening anywhere else in Canada? Any members have some feedback. What about the US?

Just curious.

Peace

Our prices in the U.S. change almost daily. On increases price usually jumps 20+ cents per gallon at one time. Then it slowly trickles down over a few weeks. In Indiana we are at $3.45 US per gallon today.

Yep.. we get the same thing.. It will go down maybe a penny a day for a while and then jump a dime or more overnight. We are currently sitting at $2.95 per gallon in Tulsa. But we are traditionally one of the lowest gas markets in the country. Its pretty sad though when $2.95 seems "cheap".

I'm in the Mountains to your East and have never seen it where there is not even a slight fluctuation for even a Week. Usually, prices jump all over the place here as well.

Oh dang...I'm really going to be dating myself here. But, as a little girl of 5 or so years old. I remember gas wars. Where stations across the street from each other would change their sandwich board signs daily , with lower and lower prices, trying to out do the other. Gas prices of .15 cents per gallon were not unusual....

Those were the days.....

Here in Northern California, up until about 2 weeks or so ago, we were getting rocked, above $4.20 a gallon for just about 2 months straight.

My area has 2,000 people, 1000 bears, 500 dogs and 3 politicians...


Not big enough to have any politician here even know what effects fuel prices Globally let alone have any say in the matter...

One can only dream right?

Its Election year. I'm sure they are doing it so people could focus on their #ty lives and not how #ty the gas prices are so they could seem like they are doing something. I guarantee you it'll go back up past $4 by the end of this bull# election

Gas prices here sat at $2.94/gal for about a week, then yesterday jumped to $3.04. We'll see it occasionally stay stable for right about 5-6 days, and then it'll jump up anywhere from $0.10-015/gal.

It seems that everyone is experiencing radical changes as usual no matter where they are.

Curious as to why mine still hasn't changed.

128.7 and holding...

Now the question arises: If one chain can do it, why can't others?

Answer: They can.
