I went to the grocery store tonight and also had to get gas. I figured I'd get it on the way back instead of making a couple of U turns. As I passed the station at about 6pm Unleaded was @3.07, 45 minutes later I stopped at the station and the price was up to 3.12. Highest in the state I think. I think I'm going to go buy a moped instead of driving the van.
3.11 here in the peoples republic of maryland, columbia area.

Up here, this country produces a crap load of the stuff in eastern and western Canada. Sell it to you and we end up paying $4.00usd/usgal... Much of it caused by our greedy, money grubbing, user fee up front government.
You think it's killing you?!
Try running a business when gas goes from $3.50 a gallon to $4.00 a gallon and their only excuse is... "Oh yeah. There are heightened tensions in the mid-east" YEAH between a couple of non-oil producing countries... Idiots. And as I said this country produces in abundance. If the government is picking up a percent, which one of those brave souls is going to shoot the entire lot in the foot?
We aren't stupid, we're black-mailed. Held at ransom. There is no more competition in the sale of gas than there is in the sale of computer operating systems or the sale of insurance policies.
Ol' Ralphy boy, premier of Alberta, is gitt'n out while the gitt'n's good. Before everything crashes down around the greedy little ears of his government. He's a big hero in Alberta right now. What's gonna happen when the customer starts dictating what the price is gonna be, instead of the open and international market? I think it might come up cheaper if the rest of Canada starts buying it from the States or deal direct with OPEC instead. What's the phone number for the Venezualan embassy?... Anybody?
Is this a Fabreze moment? C.Y.D. I'm voting white elephant. 2¢. My competition are my best salespeople!
