Gas Hits $4

GasBuddy app screen shotGas station owners seem to have resisted the $4 per gallon barrier on regular unleaded since gas prices jumped over that level back in 2008.

It took Isaac to force their hand.

Regular unleaded was $4.00 a gallon at one station in Grand Rapids Tuesday morning. According to my GasBuddy app, it was the first station in all of the Grand Rapids-Holland-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek area to make the leap.

In an email this morning, Patrick DeHaan of GasBuddy blamed tropical storm Isaac and "murky regional refining issues" for a jump of 35 cents per gallon in the wholesale price of gasoline on Monday. Understandably, oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico have gone offline as the storm got near.
