Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Through This Morning

Strong low pressure in the Gulf of Maine through today will continue to cause wind gusts locally from 30-35 mph through this afternoon.  The wind in combination with the bitterly cold air in place will drop wind chills to -15 to -25 degrees at times through this morning easing slightly to between -5 and -15 this afternoon as temperatures climb from morning lows near zero into the low to mid teens. Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and mittens and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces.

That's up about four cents from the day before.

The state attorney general back then... Louis Lefkowicz wasn't too thrilled about it.. and announced a full-scale investigation into price-fixing and collusion.

After all of that, just two years later, the Arab oil embargo made 42-cents a gallon a pleasant memory.August 7, 1971 - Gas price spike
