I find it hard to believe a gas station would sell gas at .20 cents less than anyone else. That's quite a gap.
No, my timeline's not off. I was in Missouri the weekend of July 20-21. Gas down there was around $3.30 a gallon. When I got back here, I noticed that gas (again, at the station by me) was at $3.45, which is actually pretty reasonable considering the tax difference between Illinois and Missouri. The price stayed there for a few days, then started jumping. And jumping and jumping.
Neither of you live here. Neither of you have been here during this time period. You're trying to tell me what gas cost based on a website. I'm telling you what I SAW WITH MY OWN EYES and what I PAID OUT OF MY OWN POCKET.
You guys going to tell me what color paint I have in my bedroom as well? Christ.
