    Its funny , You have to wonder IS the price going up from the manufactures or is it some price gouging on the stations. I see some stations can be as much as 5 cents to almost 15 cents diffrence and that is within a few days, drive town to town and it seems to get higher . something must give and I fear its our wallets,,

    Still waiting for a logical reason for the price increase. I fear I’ll be waiting a long time.

    Gas prices have more than doubled since Obummer took office. Some analyst think it will be well over $4/gallon by the end of summer and over $5/gallon going into the 2012 election season. That should pretty much guarantee an Obummer defeat.
