Funny how you keep saying prices are steady or going down when every station in my area raised their prices in anticipation of the Christmas holiday. Prices in southwest Copperas Cove have gone up a minimum of .04¢ per gallon and at most stations more than that.

Just proves the old saying, "if you don't read the newspaper you're uninformed. If you do read the newspaper you're misinformed."
