This is such BS - seems like if someone said the wind blowing from the east was a reason to raise the prices they would do it.
It has gotten really far out of hand. This country needs to seriously look at alternatives and our government needs to do something about this junk!

Yep, seem as though any reason they can conger up will make the prices jump at the pump. sad!
