I drove past my usual gas station Monday morning and saw that where I'd filled up on Friday at $4.11 per gallon had gone up over the weekend to $4.27! I couldn't believe it. I think that's the biggest two-day jump I've ever seen. Thought I'd missed a newsflash over the weekend that Israel and Iran had finally attacked each other or something. Any idea why this big jump occurred?

The explanation was not in the Middle East, because prices were going down nationally and up in San Diego. Best, Don Bauder
