Curse you Ike!! Gas in Cherokee County, North Carolina has gone from $3.66/gal to $4.49/gal in just two days!!
Thankfully though, I managed to fill up at $3.66/gal before the Ike Spike.

In the central part of NC, it was 3.69 when my wife went out early this afternoon and 3.79 when she came back three hours later. Also, the largest convenience store chain in the state is limiting purchases to ten gallons. (Can anyone say "artificial shortage"?)
Following excerpt from a news report illustrates wildly varying prices.:
"Cars were cutting in and out of lanes on South Saunders Street in Raleigh, where a BP was selling gas for $3.51 a gallon and a nearby Crown station was selling it for $4.79. At one point, the gas lines backed traffic onto Interstate 40."

I gassed up the car early this morning. The cost was $1.23/L (regular gas) $1.39/L for Premium (which I use). By the time I left work gas was at $1.39/L (Regular Gas); I have passed Stations as high as $1.59/L by 5:00 p.m. One of my Trades stated that the Shell Station had caution tape wrapped around the Pump Islands, as they ran out of gas & only had Diesel left. That was reported at 1:39 p.m. today.
