Gas Price Fixing

What in the world is up with gas prices?

Last Monday, it was $1.76 at Wal-Mart. Today, 4 days later, it is $2.09!

ALL of the gas stations went up as soon as Wal-Mart's price increased.

That sounds like price-fixing to me!

(I wish someone would "fix" the prices!)

Rick, I was thinking the exact same thing this morning. Monday ours was 1.88. Today? 2.05. Well, it was a few minutes ago. It could be 2.10 by now. Crazy.

SelahV,

Well, it is now back DOWN to $1.96!

Wassup with that???

I noticed I needed gas while driving by the airport tonight, but it was $2.40. We just happened to be across from where you turn in your rental cars. Two block down the road it was $2.20. I drove two more blocks and it was $2.12. Moral is to never need gas near the car rental lots.

Ours is $2.25. Had been $2.05 for about a month then all of a sudden up it goes. I told my wife it was probably because the oil companies only made 15 million profit and wanted more.

B&JS, I discovered that fact in North Carolina last year...

Bill, yeah, greed is the driving factor here, I think....
