Los Angeles Gasoline Prices: Up or Down?

This Chevron station at the corner of Lincoln and Venice had two different sets of prices posted today. One set listed premium at $2.00 ($1.99.9 is two dollars, not a dollar ninety-nine, to the non-impressionable among us). The other sign listed premium at $2.04. A station employee was standing under the sign with the cheaper prices. My guess is that he was about to raise the posted prices above him, as opposed to having just finished lowering them. Gasoline prices may have fallen around the country this past week, but we’re talking about the West Side of Los Angeles, where I am seeing them back on the upswing.
