Gasoline pricing

I took some time at lunch yesterday to go fill up my car--the evening schedule looked to be too full to allow time to stop between the office and home on the way to exercise. I drove some distance to a gas station that frequently has the lowest prices, only to find that their price of $1.589 was only a penny less than the place across the street from my office. (For those shocked at the low price, this is Georgia, with some of the lowest gas taxes in the country.)

After work, I had to drive by that gas station. In the intervening 5 hours, the price had changed to $1.489. (The one across from the office was still at $1.599.)
