According to Gasbuddy (love the app!), it has been 4 years since gas has been this cheap. Why can't it be summer? Riding would be so much cheaper!

I don't think it works like that, specifically, there are bunch of things that control gas prices as well as the price of a barrel of oil. Someone tried explaining to me once. I also thought if a barrel comes out of the ground at X dollars and it takes 60 days for it to reach the pump then that's when the price would go up or down.

It seems that there are a bunch of factors that make gas price changes and in different time frames. I think it's all BS so they can control the market and price fix.

I was trying to make the point that the oil price today won't reflect the gas price today. It can, if the stations are in cahoots or if the price to the station has been raised/lowered preemptively by the distributor, but AFAIK, that's illegal.
