$3.19 to $3.29 to $3.39 to ???

It seemed odd, at least to me, that Twin Cities gas prices were seemingly stuck at $3.19 a gallon even as turmoil in the Middle East spread and the price of a barrel of oil shot toward $100.

The other shoe landed with a thud earlier this week, as virtually every gas station in town — as if on cue — raised their prices 10 to 15 cents within the span of two hours.

Price increase #2:  this morning.

Stay tuned. . .

P.S.:  Bargain hunters like myself know that when gas prices jump, you’ve got till the end of the day to fill up at Costco, which is famous for lagging prices on the street by 24 hours.
