Gas Prices Recently

November 7th has come and gone. For a number of weeks leading up to that date, gas prices were steadily decreasing to around their recent low of $2.06 a gallon (in Tucson, AZ) and held there for the better part of the last month. Interestingly, after the election, the gas prices at many places around town have now been increasing and are about $.10 more expensive than they were a week ago.

As the trend started going downward from the cost of $2.50 a gallon a couple of months ago, I suspected that the oil companies were trying to throw a little help to the Republican party in the form of taking people’s minds off of the high cost of gas. I don’t have any proof to back this up, but it’s just a hunch. It wouldn’t surprise me, however, if the prices return to the mid two dollars per gallon before long. Now, lets wait and see if I’m a touch crazy in thinking this or if it actually happens.
