Because I only have a two-and-a-half mile commute to work, I can stretch a tank of gas for almost a solid month before being faced with the task of visiting a gas station. As a result, I don't usually pay that much attention to fuel prices, occasionally glancing at the $hell station's marquee on my way home. The last few weeks I've noticed that the prices have been steadily creeping toward all-time highs. Just last week, regular jumped from $2.09 to $2.19 overnight. And the excuse they give? Something about converting from winter to summer grade gasoline. That's all beyond me. I'm pretty sure that my car will run just fine on either grade and I'm also fairly certain that the difference between winter and summer in San Diego is so negligible that most of us would probably just as soon drive around with the wrong season in our tanks.
