Behold the power of my wrath!

In our last episode, I unleashed my unending wrath on the local gas stations. It seems that when I verbally abuse gas station owners, they listen! Not two days after my scathing diatribe, just about every gas station within a 10 mile radius started dropping their prices to match (or at least come close to matching) what BJ’s had. Not only that, but they’ve been steadily falling ever since! Now, most gas stations have all three grades under $3.00/gallon. There are still a few with expensive premium, but they’re dwindling fast. It’s a fine start, I must say, but that’s all it is: A start.

You see, one of the things that has enraged me as of late has been the disparity of pricing among the different grades. As far back as I can remember, each octane level was ~$0.10 more expensive than the one below it. But the past several weeks, the normal grade gas (87 octane around here) has been ~$0.20 cheaper while the higher grades didn’t come down in price at all. As I said earlier, since my last post, prices have dropped across the board at most of the local stations, but I won’t truly be mollified until the mid grade (91 octane) and premium (93 octane) prices come down to return to the days of a $0.10 seperation between grades. No other course of action is acceptable!

I challenge you now, gas station owners! I challenge you in the name of affordable gas prices that don’t cut into my video games, hookers, and blow budget! I say you must lower the mid and premium grades another $0.10 to keep the proper price spread! And then, if you have the backbone for it, you must continue your overall price reduction to bring us back to the halcyon days of our innocence!

Gas station owners, only you can save our freedom.
