Is Gasoline Getting Cheaper In Portland?

In the wee small hours of this morning, I drove by the Chevron station at NW 23rd/Vista and Northwest Burnside.

I noticed that the posted price for Premium gasoline was $3.73 a gallon.

Yes, I know that this fueling stop is one of the most expensive in PDX- but consider this.

For at least two weeks- up until late yesterday afternoon, the posted price for Premium gasoline at this Chevron was $3.83 a gallon.

So by my math, the price has gone down 10 cents.

Is this just an isolated case, or have you noticed a gradual pullback on pricing at the gas stations you frequent?

    I walk by the Chevron station at 47th & Sandy every night during my walk. I monitor and track the price of gas there, and have done this for the past 3-4 years. A few days ago, the price for a gallon of Supreme was $3.65; the price went down on Friday to $3.63.

    Just two cents, that’s all.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    In this article about gas prices in the country being the highest ever:
    http://money.cnn.com/2007/05/22/news/economy/record_gas_tues/index.htm?cnn=yes

    They mention that California, Nevada, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington have all seen modest declines in the past few days (and every other state has seen increases).

    I’ve seen about a 10 cent reduction in the SW subs. But it rollercoasters like crazy, so who knows?

    I usually fill up at that Chevron or the station on 3rd and Burnside. With a 100cc motorcycle and average fillups of less than a gallon every 1-2 weeks, I don’t really notice or care what the price is.
