Default WTF is going on with gas prices??

Seriously, .40 cent increase in one day? $3.85 to $4.30 in Traverse City. Ridiculous and no even a news story of a refinery fire or other bs to cause the increase...

Refinery shortage because a local Michigan refinery somewhere went offline according to an article I read and will link when im on a computer.

What I found weird was that there wasn't any news or media discussion about it in general also.

Actually the real reason for the increase is because the oil corporations only profited millions, not tens or hundreds as projected

So really you have no one to blame but yourself.

“The good news is hopefully this is temporary because once these refineries get back in full steam, the prices should come down,” she said adding that they should be back online in early June.

once we get used to seeing $4/gallon, we will never see $3 anymore.

heading to Muskallonge Lake tomorrow for the weekend, an extra $20-$25 per tank hurts the bottom line.

X2 on diesel, it stays steadier than gas prices.

When the hike hit, I checked yahoo news to see what the top story. It was "Police Taser Escaped Llama" so that must have been the problem.
