Went from U.*.$2.09 for 93, to $2.31 for 93 in the space of one day last week.
BTW, Iraqi interim government is limiting gas prices in Iraq to U.*. $0.05 a gallon.
It'* so cheap that smugglers are buying it in Iraq and bootlegging it across the border into Jordan and Syria. Add to that the fact that the number of cars in Iraq has doubled since the beginning of the war and the supply is so low that average Iraqi'* can't get gas at any price. Your tax dollars at work.
One of the things that is driving up prices here is that oil companies DID project a supply surge after the war, and held their prices low, expecting crude prices to drop quickly. Since it hasn't come about, they have to hike their prices to make up their falsely high projected earnings.
Me smart, me got po-lit-i-cal savvy!
