In order from least to greatest, here are the prices per gallon of gas at two different gas stations over the past 7 days.

Station A:

2.38, 2.68, 2.82, 2.86, 2.99, 3.26, 3.59

Station B:

2.84, 2.85, 2.88, 2.95, 2.98, 3.03, 3.05

Suppose that these gas stations were the closest to your house, but not near each other. Which gas station would you go to for gas?

Day 1-4    go to station A        Day 5-7 go to station B        Day 8 could be anything, but I would likely go to B

Thanks. This question is kinda weird because I was thinking like "why would the past gas prices matter if I'm trying to get gas right now? Obviously, I'm gonna go for the cheapest today". Your take on it is very interesting though. I haven't thought about it that way.

Both stations have rising prices, but B is rising more slowly and is now  likely less than A ....so go to B .

Actually, I'd love to create an account. I've already tried making an account multiple times but I keep getting an error. I even tried making one on another device and a different email.

I am really sorry to here that. 

 

I know there have beens some changes to servers or some such thing lately. 

So just try again once in a while and you might get lucky.  What part of the world are you in?  This is relevant if anyone looks at your problem.  (not me, I know nothing about programing)

 

In the meantime, pick a username and sign your name at the bottom of your posts.

We will get to know you that way :))

 

You could answer this post and put your name.  That would be good  laugh
