West Seattle Gas Price Watch: Another WS-wide survey

exxonfourless.jpgAh, remember the good ol’ days when the stations were running out of “3″ for their signs, not “4″ (photo @ left taken at Delridge Exxon) … 12 weeks ago, we checked and reported the posted regular and premium prices from all West Seattle gas stations (sorry, we haven’t been able to include biodiesel as their prices are not posted on signage that’s easy to spot during a drive-by survey), as it looked like prices were about to start a steep rise. Five weeks ago, we repeated the survey; tonight, while out working on another project that was taking us to every corner of WS anyway, we did it again. Here’s what we found, with the 12- and 5-weeks-earlier prices listed too:

12 weeks ago, prices for regular in West Seattle were around $3.45; now, $4.05 is the most common price – so it’s gone up about 60 cents in 12 weeks, with two-thirds of that in the five weeks since our last WS-wide survey.

$3.89/$4.09, Arco (Delridge/Orchard) (5 wks ago $3.47-$3.69, 12 wks ago $3.25-$3.47)
$3.99/$4.19, Calif/Charlestown 7-11 (5 wks ago $3.55-$3.75, 12 wks ago $3.41-$3.61)
$3.99/$4.19, California/Andover 76 (5 wks ago $3.59-$3.79, 12 wks ago $3.45-$3.65)

$4.06/$4.25, Roxbury Safeway (5 wks ago $3.56-$3.79, 12 wks ago $3.38-$3.59)
$4.07/$4.29, 35th/Barton Exxon (5 wks ago $3.66-$3.89, 12 wks ago $3.45-$3.71)

Seems we’re just a little above the citywide average, as tracked by AAA.

  1. How long before the signs with a single digit for the dollar are obsolete? Or will they just move the decimal place over and get rid of the silly “nine tenths of a cent” marker?

  2. Like they say, “If ya have to ask, ya can’t afford it”. More so every day.
