On the 10th, I wrote about the exorbitantly high price of gasoline in these parts. It was $3.23/gallon for regular in Anchorage, and much higher elsewhere, here in the Last Frontier.
I told the story about how the price is deliberately escalated because of something that isn't actually the case. The price is based, we're told to believe, in a suppositional case of whimsy, hot air, "what if?" and "why not?"
I mentioned that two legislators in Juneau had petitioned the Governor's office to investigate, since our price was 80 cents above the national average - for no apparent reason other than greed.
Strangely enough, the price had already dropped to $3.08/gallon by yesterday. In only three days.
¿Por qué no me sorprende?
