“Prices will come back down at some point, it’s just a matter of when,” Ingram said. “Until then, we just need to do the best we can with using as little fuel as we can get by with to keep our demand as low as possible.”

“Then price shopping every single tankful to help create some competition in the marketplace, which will also help drive our prices downward,” Ingram concluded.
