Derecho & gasoline prices

It’s funny. Before the derecho that struck in late June in the Washington DC area, gasoline prices were steadily falling. After the derecho, gasoline prices have been on the upswing.

This morning I saw one independent gasoline station charging $3.56 per gallon for regular gasoline. At my favorite gasoline station near my job, the price of regular gasoline was $3.39 per gallon.

I spent the past week in South Carolina, a state that missed the derecho. The cheapest gasoline I found – $2.99 per gallon.

Yes there appears to be a connection between the derecho & higher gasoline prices.
