I took a detour on my commute today to snap a picture of Drayton’s Passage from the 72nd Street boat launch in Longbranch, Wash. My drive was uneventful and smooth sailing all the way into Tacoma.
However, it looks like our gas prices are staying put where they have been the past three days. Home’s Shell station priced their gas at $3.75/gallon. The 134th Avenue Shell station is selling their gas for $3.72/gallon. The price at the Wauna Chevron is $3.65/gallon and the Union 76 station’s price is $3.59/gallon — once again the cheapest gas on the Key Peninsula HIghway corridor.
Tacoma’s average price today is $3.62/gallon while the national average is $3.58. A month ago, the average price in Tacoma was $3.40/gallon and the national average was $3.26. Yes sir, spring and summer, the heaviest travel seasons of the year, must be just around the next overcast day.
