Fill 'er up

Now that Labor Day has passed, I'll let you in on a pattern I'd noticed during the summer driving season. Fill up on fuel for whatever weekend road trip you'll be taking on Thursday, not Friday.

All through the summer, I noticed the slight uptick of gasoline prices every Friday, in anticipation of weekend getaways, or vacations that begin over the weekend. Back down they would go on Monday mornings.

And before Memorial Day or Labor Day weekends? Fuhggedaboutit! Remember back in 2008 when gasoline was reaching historic highs and gasoline prices would increase multiple times a day?

Few things in life are random, especially when it comes to consumer pricing: observe long enough, and a pattern will reveal itself.
