Highest gas prices in the country

In Michigan ? WTF

We over took Cal and Hawaii as the highest prices in the nation. What a bunch of BS !

No, its "Supply & Demand" alright- The oil futures traders 'n' Speckalaters DEMAND mo' money-an' we supply it...Takes a lot to run a posh, swanky Manhattan condo, a nice little place in The Hamptons, keep 2 kids in Ivy League schools, alimony for their mom, & keep The Trophy Wife in nose candy & baubles, bangles 'n' beads from Tiffany's...Shit, maybe we need to send those poor guys more...(grin)

Price of gas

$2.49 here in Bugtussell. Donated app $125 to the cause last week alone. Guess I should be thankful, a couple of years ago we spent $900 in one month.

Can't wait until the Feds add another $.40 per gallon in taxes.

Ya know, I'm beginn' to think that they's out to git us,
Chas

Can't remember all the specifics but the refiners apparently cut back production little while back. They will say to match demand but could it be to drive up prices. Naw couldn't be that.
