crude gestures

The price of crude oil fell below $90/barrel this morning for the first time this year.

With the fate of the Euro still up in the air and Greece continuing to teeter on the edge of default, there's no mystery to why this is happening. But still, I wonder why gasoline prices here in the Pacific Northwest keep going up, when the cost of crude oil has been falling for the past month.

Gas prices appear to be falling everywhere except on the west coast, so I guess we must be special out here. At least we're not creeps, but it's tough, having to pay for the privilege.
