Just a Matter of Time
The moment I've been dreading finally happened. The price of cheap gas in Elmhurst is now over $4.00. I hate to mislead people, but this photo was taken on Wednesday morning. The price did drop on Saturday to $3.99, but this morning, it shot up to $4.09. This is the same Shell station I mentioned in a blog from late March.
I generally am not someone who attempts to place things in proper perspective, but I did mention in yesterday's blog that we spent most of Saturday in Lincoln Park. For the out-of-towners, that's in Chicago. On the way to the park, our friend Lisa had to fill up. The station we stopped at had 87 octane for $4.39. There's nothing quite like dropping $80 at the pump.
