Gas stations have been doing that since I was a teenager at least.
That's odd. Here they raise prices from 7am to 10am and then again from 2pm to 6pm to hit the vast majority of commuters.

It was down another cent today, on my way in. But I came in pretty early today. Maybe they didn't bump 'em.

I've been paying between 3.57 USD and 3.59 USD at Costco for about a month. Elsewhere in SW FL, the price swings from about 3.59 to $3.87.

That's $4.85 US/gal.

Right now, its $1.22/L here - that's about $4.60 US/gal.

Diesel fuel has recently exceeded 46 pesos per liter.
Unleaded gasoline is 53 pesos and premium is 56.
Current exchange rate is 43.7 pesos to USD.

In August 2010 diesel was 34 per liter and the other fuels were respectively lower.

I was hoping you'd post in this thread!

That's $4.58 in US terms for the regular unleaded. Rather similar to Canadian prices.

It was $1.14/L here today... that's down to $4.30 US (actually slightly less because CAN$ is a few cents above USD right now).

Things seem to be holding steady around here at the high 3.40s or low 3.50s.
