Sometimes, it’s the little things that make you happy. For me, it’s always been when Rainier Cherries make their debut in the local stores signaling the beginning of summer.

While I’ve always thought heading down to Pike Place Market and picking them up is a better deal (and more fun), having them available in the local QFC is just downright convenient. This summer, the contest will be to see which is more expensive: gas prices per gallon, or cherries by the pound.

Right now, cherries are slighty more expensive at $4.99/lb, local gas is at $4.41/gallon for regular.

I bet this flips by July 4.

    Have you noticed that all the gas stations in the area max out regular at $4.41? All of them? I thought that was odd – is that some magic number? Weird.

    Shell station at the top of Inglewood was 4.43 today..

    At least in Houston the gas prices are still lower than other cities. It’s $3.96. As for Rainer cherries they cost $4.99 a pound, but worth every penny.
