The average U.S. price of regular-grade gasoline jumped 14 cents a gallon over the past two weeks to $2.64, according to the Associated Press. The price at the pump has climbed 46 cents since Nov. 20.
It was $2.48 a gallon for gas Thursday and diesel was at $2.58 a gallon here at the Shell station in Lafayette when I went into town about 10 AM. Checking gasbuddy.com, I see Thursday night gas dropped 10 cents in price.
Before this covid bullshit, gas prices fluctuated by a penny or two day by day. Now a 10 or 15 cent overnight increase or decrease isn't unusual.
