I went to work last night and I have a fairly long drive plus I went one way to work another way home and noticed that All the gas stations seem to agree on $2.49 a gallon.
I probably passed 20 or more gas stations and all of them 2.49, which is funny because they all varied the night before. I am thinking all the gas stations are speculating and just agreed on $2.49. A bit to broad across the board for 20+ stations in a 60 mile radius. Weird.

The night before anywhere from 2.26 to 2.38 a gallon. So it's a big jump.
Before the hurricane on Monday/ Tuesday it was 2.18 to 2.27

I see 10 cents per gallon fluctuations all the time which is normal here with no disasterss going on. If I saw 50+ cents per gallon fluctuations over a few days then I'd be concerned.

They went up here a bit, too, but there seems to be a "disagreement" between Esso and Shell what the price should be.

That's not a big jump Panzerman. Try 70 plus cents in 24 after Hurricane Katrina. I saw prices go from $2.66 a gallon to $3.39 a gallon in a day after Katrina. Now that was astounding. Funny note to this.... One station was at $2.87 a gollon while the others were much higher. I guess the gas station at Ark had not gotten the message yet.

The aim of running a business is to generate profit, which is exactly what's happening here.
Why the concern?

I assume you are referring to the wall street speculation and not the average joe gas station. The average gas station margin on gas is horrible, which is why they all have convenience stores that emphasize convenience over value for the goods sold.
