yeah you dont think the gas companies saw the "gas out" thing and got a kick out of raising it a week or two before and making MORE money instead of loosing money?

I filled up Saturday for $2.64 a gallon, regular unleaded.

I was in TN, about 3 miles from Windrock.

Why does Michigan have to have some of the highest gas prices in the nation?

That's OK. I stole all the gas out of your garage while you were gone.

Your kidding right ? you dont think they pay any attention to that BS thats been going around as long as iv been on the internet .

Major travel holiday coming up , OH now that may have a hell of a lot to do with it . Been that way as long as i can remember . Normall goes back down a few cents after Memorial day but not near as much as it jumped up .

I paid $6.59 for my gas.



























Sadly, I think Taco Bell raised their prices too.

It's called Taxes. New York is worse, but michigan is one of the higher states when it comes to per gallon taxes on fuel.

Really? Do you KNOW that?

I don't,

But there are also the excuses as far as shipping the fuel, how far from a refinery we are, etc.
