Default gas prices

OK so oil prices have fallen more than $15 in the past three days. When do we get to be pissed that the price at the pump hasn't dropped any?

Wait for it, I am sure there will be a new excuse for rising prices soon.

See they paid more for the stuff in the ground, so you need to wait until the gas station is getting refilled with the cheaper gas Yeah right!!

My gripe as well...it takes no time for the price to go up, but takes forever for it to drop. Its $4.29 in Petoskey...

as a business when you take credit cards it cost a % to accept credit cards. it can add up real fast too. they are just passing it on to you. yes it sucks but its not their fault we need our credit cards so much.

Seriously, it's not worth talking, complaining, or otherwise bitching about it anymore.

Either quit driving as much, or pay it and keep your mouth shut. It's not going to do anything but go up.

Well now that's the real problem. People are willing to just take it. nobody is willing to do anything about it.
