Welcome back to the grind The national average gas price has dropped a tiny 0.5¢ since last week to $2.492 - this time last year it was $2.367 so it's now only 5.3% (+12.5¢) dearer. Diesel is up 3.6¢ at $2.905. It's now 14.7% (+37.2¢) more expensive than this time last year. Diesel is an increasing 16.6% premium to regular. E85 is down 1.9¢ to $2.071. _____________________ Really glad it's car pooler's turn for the commute this week - it was 28°F this morning and there was a thick frost - the inside of his windscreen was frozen . Much warmer here in the UK than the East Cost of the USA have been experiencing though - it was amazing to see Niagara falls almost frozen over after the "bombgenesis”.
