National average holds virtually steady over last week

GasBuddy Blog -- Unlike the crazy fluctuations in air temperatures, gasoline prices have held much more steady over the last week in the U.S. while falling slightly in Canada.

"While gasoline prices have seemingly remained virtually unchanged in many areas across the U.S. in the last week, that has meant that some areas are still seeing prices remain much lower than a year ago," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.

The price, is what it is. When we want to buy gas, we look to GasBuddy to show the least expensive local price. I've built a spreadsheet showing mileage from my home (at 18 cents per mile sunk cost) to the local gas stations with current prices and drive to the one costing me the less to get there and fill-up. Thanks Gas Buddy!

Gas prices have fallen steadily here in Oklahoma for nearly a year. I hardly ever pay more than $2.79 to $2.82 a gallon. I look for it to continue down...nationwide. Supplies are plentiful.

Watch out what you say about oil companies, you may be cutting off your nose to spite your face. Oil company stock is very widely held, especially by people who don't know they're holding oil company stock.
