General sense seems to be, that’s happening because refineries are producing less since people are using less. Whatever’s up, here are the prices, lowest to highest:

In this list, the first number is regular, as posted on the stations’ streetfront signs; second number is premium (where posted)

West Seattle Gas Price Watch: 30 cents up, though oil’s down http://westseattleblog.com/2009/02/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-30-cents-up-though-oils-down/ http://westseattleblog.com/2009/02/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-30-cents-up-though-oils-down/#comments Mon, 09 Feb 2009 13:08:25 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=14138 gas-pump.jpgWithin the past few days, the last of the sub-$2 gas prices have vanished. Ahead, for the first time in 2 months, we have surveyed all West Seattle gas stations (except for Exxon at 35th/Barton, where the pumps are cordoned off – we’ll check tomorrow on whether that’s temporary or permanent), and found most prices up more than 30 cents a gallon in that timespan, even though the price of oil is lower:

West Seattle Gas Price Watch: $1-something gas starts vanishing http://westseattleblog.com/2009/01/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-gas-starts-vanishing/ http://westseattleblog.com/2009/01/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-gas-starts-vanishing/#comments Thu, 08 Jan 2009 02:00:46 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=13353 While heading to Sodo for tonight’s school board meeting, we spotted the first West Seattle regular-gas prices to creep back past $2/gallon – both stations at Fauntleroy/Alaska (including the 76, seen at left). We haven’t done our regular Sunday night price surveys for a few weeks because of the weather woes, but hope to get back on track starting this weekend. (The F/A 76, for comparison’s sake, was at $1.89/regular when we last did a survey 12/8, but that wasn’t quite the bottom of the curve – we saw some $1.60s and $1.70s around WS before the new price rise began.)

West Seattle Gas Price Watch: $1-something has arrived http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-has-arrived/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-has-arrived/#comments Fri, 21 Nov 2008 05:08:13 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=12032

Thanks for the tips that Delridge Arco, at $2.09 just last night, has dropped a dime since then and is now the first $1.99 gas spotted in West Seattle. (We cut the photo short but in case you’re wondering, midgrade is $2.19, premium $2.29.) ADDED FRIDAY: By this morning, at least two other stations were down to $1.99, including “Ruxbury” Gasoline – thanks to Sky for sharing this pic:

Exactly 24 hours earlier, after we left the West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting at SWP, it was $2.13, which was a two-cent drop from when we drove by during the daytime Tuesday. (We did one price check in November of last year, at which time the same station came in at $3.05; the AAA pricetracker also has the current citywide average at exactly a dollar less than this time last year.)

West Seattle signs: You saw these two coming http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-signs-you-saw-these-two-coming/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-signs-you-saw-these-two-coming/#comments Wed, 12 Nov 2008 23:16:32 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=11833

Just back from an errand break, during which we spotted two signs worth passing along, even though neither is a surprise – Delridge Arco has broken into the $2.10s (how long till $1.99?), and Zeeks Pizza has finally put up “coming spring 2009″ signage at its future location, the ex-Corner Inn (Fauntleroy/California; we first reported their West Seattle plans back in September, thanks to a tip from Rick).

West Seattle Gas Price Watch: $1-something in sight? http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-in-sight/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-1-something-in-sight/#comments Mon, 10 Nov 2008 13:04:02 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=11767 gas-pump.jpgConsidering the lowest posted gas price in West Seattle on our latest late-Sunday-night weekly survey is less than a quarter away from being sub-$2 — with prices having dropped about 2 dollars since their peak less than 5 months ago — that’s not such a ridiculous question to ask.

West Seattle weekend scenes: Station to station http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-weekend-scenes-station-to-station/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-weekend-scenes-station-to-station/#comments Sat, 08 Nov 2008 19:57:33 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=11740

A recent note asked whether we knew why work crews like that one appeared to be drilling around Roxhill Elementary School. We took the question to Seattle Public Schools‘ communications team what they could tell us, and they finally got to the bottom of it, so to speak: The crews are checking whether any gasoline from tanks at the recently reopened “Ruxbury” gas station across the street seeped into the water table. David Tucker from the school district says they’re only working on weekends, and whatever they find, it’s no danger to the school or its students/staff because water used there doesn’t come from the site. We’ll be checking further on the extent of the investigation. Meantime, at another gas station a couple miles north, a new price milestone:

Gas prices are truly falling, in more ways than one, at Delridge Arco, first West Seattle spot where we’ve sighted a price in the $2.20s. Will we see sub-$2 gas? Any bets? Tomorrow night, by the way, we’ll be making the rounds for our usual Sunday night price survey of all West Seattle gas stations (here’s last week’s - Arco has dropped 20 cents since then).

West Seattle Gas Price Watch: Price slide slows, ever so slightly http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-price-slide-slows-ever-so-slightly/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/11/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-price-slide-slows-ever-so-slightly/#comments Mon, 03 Nov 2008 13:31:34 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=11638 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.

West Seattle Gas Price Watch (etc.): Into the 2.40s http://westseattleblog.com/2008/10/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-etc-into-the-240s/ http://westseattleblog.com/2008/10/west-seattle-gas-price-watch-etc-into-the-240s/#comments Sat, 01 Nov 2008 02:40:41 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=11607 Quick note while we stop briefly at WSB HQ during Halloween coverage (2/3 of the team) and WSHS football coverage (the other third’s there, reporting frequent updates at twitter.com/wsbbizdev, score here when it’s over, plus full wrapup): Gas at Arco and 76 on Delridge, 2.49/regular. We also have been to 4th Avenue Costco, where it was 2.43 (photo left). Anyone want to bet yet if we’ll go below $2? (P.S. Back on the Halloween theme – we’ve gotten a dozen trick-or-treaters here in Upper Fauntleroy within barely 10 minutes. Big change from years past.)
