'21 Tacoma TRD-Offroad – '94 Miata – '16 RAV4
Paid 3.93 today in Grantham NH, then saw 3.83 in Northwood NH. It was back around 4.35 when I crossed into Maine.
I won't speculate on motivations, but the current draws are scheduled through October. They could theoretically be extended, but at the current rate not more than another 6-8 months before the low SPR becomes a security risk (the whole point was originally so the military could still operate during wartime if Middle East oil supplies were cut off like during the Arab Oil Embargo). The release made sense if you thought this was a temporary supply disruption (the Biden administration explained the first SPR releases a year ago as dealing with post-COVID supply chain issues), but make no sense if you think this is a longer-term structural issue (I tend to).SPR draws are supposed to continue until October, so as to get us through the election, right?
