Cause we don't pay attention at that point .. Seriously, I've done some cursory looking and gas prices tend to be about 2-3 weeks behind oil prices .. It's not an exact science of course. I will say, that as the price of gas got higher out here (when Oil was volatile near $150/barrel), pricing was wacko .. but in the not as volatile times, there didnt' seem to be anything extraordinary going on. The current volatile times in the South East are probably a bit wacko at the moment, but in a week or two it should right itself again.
