Re: Gas prices around the country


Is there a local tax that is raising it?  
   
I really believe they charge what they can get away with. Crude oil goes
up and instantly the pump price goes up- why is that? It isn't like they
paid more for the on hand gas they have.....and that new barrel price
isn't processed and in their tanks in the same day....sigh.
