2.16 here.. and that'* with the price raise for the weekend [for the vacationers to pay even more]. I think it was 2.09 before that. And I am talking about 87.

i think the hurricane coming and the london attacks make the gas and oil companies think it is ok to raise prices....but its not. If we all put our foot down, and stopped living with the prices, they would go down. If we just boycotted for 2 or 3 days, i think it would help

-just my opinion

It is getting outrageous!!! The truckers are on strike up here because of the gas prices. If only we could all get together to boycott, but we all know that will never happen.

that is only way to stop the rising prices, they will go up until people say no, and stop paying for it.

That is quite incorrect.

Oil is above 60 bucks a barrel.

You cant stop living with the prices since a lot of our oil comes from saudi-arabia (aka terrorists)

its not just opec and other nations that have oil 60.00 a barrel. Gas companies are half the problem. They arent helping to ease the problem.
