Last I saw, we're paying 2.56 for premium.....and about 2.43 for regular.

Who want'* to bomb the people that keep raising prices?

Reason why is that a couple of stations jacked teh prices up already and created a mass panic. There was one station up here that jacked it up to 1.799 per liter , that is 6,80$ PER GALLON, while all the other stations stayed around 1,099 per liter, that is 4,15$ per gallon. So you can't tell me there is no price gouging going on. They even had stations around here running out of gas.

its all price gouging for the first couple of weeks they raise it, unless the station just bought gas that is....

for example lets say a station bought gas for 2.35 a gallon and is selling it for 2.39...that would actually be a bigger profit than they usually make but bear with me....the day after they fill the tanks prices shoot up to 2.75 a gallon...its still the same gas in the tanks, and now theyre making 40 cents a gallon profit...unethical? oh yes folks

No price gouging or lines here yet. Good thing, too. I'm running 95 octane right now, and don't want to dilute it.

$2.56 for regular here. No lines yet. I am filling up after work. Hopefully prices won't jump before then.

How bout the military tanker trucks refilling cars along the hwys in Houston...only to find out the nozzles they have dont fit into passenger sized fuel inlets

Unreal...you wait 16hrs in 100F heat waiting for the army to refill your car...while you evac from water, and they dont have a simple 1" nozzle handy.

I'll pay the inflated prices of gas for now, I have my home, my work, my family...I dont have to flee water, wind and exploding buses.

*sigh*...maybe its karma
