We had a birthday party at Deena’s last night. Somewhere around 7 PM we heard that gas prices were over $4 in Paducah and would probably go to $5 before the weekend.
I was a bit skeptical. Then, when we left the party to head home, we saw cars lined up into the street at almost every gas station. When we got into Lone Oak some stations were out of gas, others had raised prices to $4.59!!!! Gas was $3.50 something at 2 PM yesterday. I don’t ever recall seeing anything like that happen before.
Gas was over $5 in Marion, Illinois and Carbondale!
