Gas prices quick to rise and terribly slow to fall
Well, it appears greedy Western New York gas station owners win again. When Hurricane Harvey was 300 miles off the coast, gas prices began to rise. When it was forecast to hit the coast of Texas and refineries would close down, gas prices rose again. When reports that gas could rise 30 cents per gallon, almost immediately, gas prices rose 30 cents per gallon. Then prices rose another 10 cents for good measure.
When it was reported that refineries would reopen on a limited basis, gas prices remained the same. When it was reported that refineries were operating at full capacity, gas prices remained the same. Now three weeks later, gas prices remain the same. Greedy gas station owners win again.
