    After a year plus of gas prices being stagnant in my area, I have noticed the price jumping up a dime to 15 cents over the last few days. Anyone else notice this? ( I know Prime drivers don't pay attention to such things but still...)

    Gasbuddy shows a recent small jump in your state, but only if you look back just one month, not three months.

    Nationwide, it is less pronounced. My region, no change.

    They seem to fluctuate up and down 10-20 cents here.

    Might be 10 cents more here.
    Consider that winter blend is usually lower than summer.
    Maybe OPEC's cut backs have finally started having an impact to supply?

    Still right around $2/gal. Has been this low for over a year now.

    Crude prices are creeping up.
    But even in the new "COVID reality" of less travel, I suspect that it is the seasonal holiday bump......because they CAN.

    Also a lot of supply of both crude oil and refined products have been removed from the market due to low prices and low demand. Many of the shale drillers are either bankrupt or mothballed. Other crude oil sources are at lower rates of production. Less efficient refineries have been shut down.
