Still below $3 a gallon at my location stations, but not by much.

Colonial Pipeline company was hit with a cyberattack.  No prediction yet as to impact on gas prices on the East Coast.

I had an appointment at the VA hospital on Tuesday. Price for regular when I drove by one of the stations I use as a reference was $2.959. I had another appointment on Thursday. Price at the same station was $2.999.

Prices have pretty much not budged here in Northern Virginia for the past month and a half. The station nearest my house is at $2.859, the Shell down the street is at $2.939, but I buy from there because I have rewards points on my grocery card. Filled up last week for 80 cents off a gallon.

Even with the high taxes here in Michigan we hovered around $2.20's-$2.30's with a bump up and then down again.  We've been celebrating Creepy Joe's first hundred days by having it creep up...$2.90 today.

$3.29 in town, $3.19 at the Costco. Usually there is a bigger difference between Costco and my town station. Usually closer to $0.20.

$2.68 in the Tulsa area.

Expect prices to spike

Quote
One of the nation’s largest pipelines, which carries refined gasoline and jet fuel from Texas up the East Coast to New York, was forced to shut down after being hit by ransomware in a vivid demonstration of the vulnerability of energy infrastructure to cyberattacks.

The operator of the system, Colonial Pipeline, said in a vaguely worded statement late Friday that it had shut down its 5,500 miles of pipeline, which it says carries 45 percent of the East Coast’s fuel supplies, in an effort to contain the breach. Earlier Friday, there were disruptions along the pipeline, but it was not clear at the time whether that was a direct result of the attack or of the company’s moves to proactively halt it.
