I believe that to a certain point. The State Farm Insurance corporate headquarters in located in my area (Bloomington, IL), and obviously they are the biggest employer in this county populated by 200k or so.

Is it a coincidence that gas prices go up at EVERY gas station in the County, right after State Farm payday? I know the gas stations aren't running out of gas, they are raising prices because they KNOW lots and lots of people will be buying it.

I've studied the pattern of how gas prices fluxuate locally, and it really seems to have no relation to the U.*. oil price-per-barrel that day/week. Anyway, I'm just a little bitter about the whole thing...

I just walked in the door one minute ago from putting $10 in. NO it didn't come close to even getting up to 3/8 tank (although on the guage it shows a little over 3/8 ).
I just paid $1.78.9 for 91 octane, but that was with a $.03 per gallon discount so normal price is $1.81.9 for premium. Regular was like $.13 less.
