gas-pump.jpgHere are the results of our weekly Sunday night drive-by survey of posted regular and premium prices at West Seattle gas stations; prices are still sliding, but more slowly than the previous week. The biggest price drop of the week was 36 cents/gallon (3 stations), compared to 44 cents last week. Even more notably, only one non-diesel price, at one West Seattle station, remains above $3.00; everything else is 2-something, as you’ll see in the list ahead:

  1. At the Arco (Delridge/Orchard) I filled up for $2.39 this morning.

  2. Thanks! We make the rounds very late Sunday night (in this case, the price checks were between midnight and 1 am today) and realize that sometimes the gas-station operators get word from HQ early Monday to make another change, so the value of these checks, such as it is, is the “exactly one week apart” baseline … TR

  3. Completely understand, WSB. Given the sinking (yea!) and rising (boo!) price of oil by the barrel this year, poor station operators are master ladder climbers.
    Oil settled at $63.91 today, and has been hanging in the $62-$68 range for the past two wseeks. The drops should continue but be subtle for a while, then level off.
