Wisconsin state tax on gas is 32.9 cents per gallon. 9th highest. Then 18.4 cents for federal. The refineries don't make that much profit on gas. I seem to remember a friend who works for the oil company say they make 4 cents per gallon profit.

USA, Buy more gas from Canada!

We are said to have more oil reserves in the province of Alberta than Saudi Arabia.

Don't be fooled, we're sitting on a bunch of oil here in the US. We're just holding on to it

And then we charge them a sh*t load after the U.*. economy crashes and we export all of it out to other countries and use so little of it for us and still charge $6+/gallon here.
