However, oil price was about $60 per barrel.

Gas prices now are around 122-124, oil price is around $48-49 per barrel.

Poco and Pomo are always cheaper. Co-worker and I were discussing it yesterday and came to the conclusion that it's probably because the Costco out that way has a gas station. So in order to compete, the other stations need to lower their prices. Not sure how true it is, but it does kind of make sense (for Poco at least).

Costco Bellingham is $2.38 / gal right now.



Savings should be in the 30% range.

Gas prices always go up in summer. Whether or not prices are manipulated the fact remains that gas costs more in the summer.

Why is summer fuel more expensive than winter fuel?
Unfortunately for drivers, gas prices often go up during the summer, starting around Memorial Day [Source: EPA]. There are many reasons behind the increase in summer fuel prices, and some are fairly logical.

So you take all the money you'd save on save on gas (or not, since the Prius isn't actually very efficient) and blow it on a bunch of cosmetic shit that makes it horribly uncomfortable to drive?
