Why do the gas prices always seem to go up on Friday and back down on Sunday or Monday?

This belongs in General Gas Talk not here. This has nothing to do with the intent of this topic.

There is no "more appropriate" place. The reason it doesn't belong here is because it doesn't belong anywhere, since it's answered on the FAQ page. Since the FAQ link has been posted, there's no need for any further commentary, except by people who think that the FAQ entry is wrong or incomplete.

We could request a lock, but it's less work to just stop posting here.

This thread is a perfect example of lack of moderation. It is out of place here, and while requests have been made to move it someplace more appropriate, here it still sits.

A better question: Why do new users create inappropriate new topics?
