Was $3.11 at Sam's Club 10 days ago. $3.19 at all other stations. Jumped up to $3.29 at other stations 2 days ago. Haven't been back to Sam's to see how much it jumped there.

President Carter created the dept of energy and tasked it to create energy independence.

what value has the DOE added to the u.s. economy?

where is this independence?

the only major change i have seen was president Obama dictating a higher CAFE from automakers as a part of the "bailout" arrangement. that did NOT come from the DOE!

ethanol, wind power, et al are not doing a thing for us except raising our out of pocket costs .

i ANTICIPATE AND EXPECT your comments in reply.
If anything the gubment will look at the stations for violating anti trust laws. You make it sound like price fixing not price gouging.

$3.18 today here at myrtle beach.
I'm trying to figure out why the gas producers want to say the summer mix is more expensive when its a dollar cheaper per gallon in the southern states.

Gas is still too cheap. I almost got tboned twice yesterday, each time by piece of shit hoopties.

Actually I don't like expensive gas, but it does seem to keep the shit off the road.

I kinda felt like a hood rat today. Low fuel light came on on my way to work. On the way home I only put a gallon in.

However it wasn't because I only had $10 and the decision was between gas and smokes, it was because I plan on dropping my gas tank tomorrow.

It cracks me up when i see that shit, gives the clerk a $10 bill, give me "insert cheapest cigarettes offered", an easy pick and the rest on pump 4.

$4.70?

I am planning a trip to the UP in 2 weeks and EVERYWHERE I looked on gasbuddy.com has gas prices in the $4-4.20 range.

Gas Pricing is really hard to figure out. When we moved to Alabama in 2008, gas was .15 more a gallon here than Michigan. Now it is the opposite. None of it makes any sense.

The only thing that makes sense is that it doesn't make any sense...
