    Dunno... we keep bouncin back and forth, past several weeks, between $2.13 and $2.07... NE Oklahoma, near Mo. state line. Usually it's at least 8 cents/gal cheaper in Missouri. Haven't been out yet today to see whether it's changed again!

    Thats easy,the holidays are coming up.National holiday on 10 Nov followed shortly by Thanksgiving and then Xmas and New years.The price fluctuations you see now are pretty much local marketing schemes as oil speculation has calmed down considerably on wall street.Our reserves are full,hurricanes haven't destroyed any capability and the reality of there isn't any shortage of oil has finally dawned on those that cause the jumps in the first place,the wall street speculators.The Saudis and everyone else have been saying there is plenty of oil and not to panic.In fact the oilproducers have threatened to cut production because the price has fallen so much.:big_smile:
