Whether is is the lead up to a long weekend or the summer, gas prices increase. This has nothing to do with the supply price and everything to do with hitting the customers hard. While prices go down after these events, they rarely return to where they were before keeping the price of gas steadily on the rise. We frequently see a 10 to 15 cent per liter (roughly 40 - 60 cents a gallon) increase over a long weekend with the excuse that the price of oil is high. With the uncertainty in Iraq right now, the prices are beginning to rise in anticipation of using that as an excuse. Do your prices for gas fluctuate a lot? Does the price have more to do with holiday schedules than world events that actually impact oil production?
