We are paying 1.26 L (5.04 Gal) for Regular gas, I was way to depressed to look at the others.
And then the oil companies say it been a good quarter they made approx 2.5 BILLION profit.
When are our governments going to grow some BALL's and stand up to these guys.
The politicians will send our youngsters over to the desert to die for no real good reason and they let the big business Rape us here in our own countries and do nothing about it.
We are heading for a revolution of our own,Home grown domestic terrorists fighting for the rights of the average man trying to make an honest living.
I am so MAD

Price went to 3.51 here yesterday up from 3.35. Prices seem to move on gas futures and not what they paid for current inventory.

All my pricing has now gone up for the customers...lawn,excavating...and snow removal...I'm not too happy about It...and when will It stop...next year we could all be paying $20.00 a gal at the pumps...There are more gas up and drive off thief's ever now...from what Is see It going to get worse.

Shot up to 3.59 today. Went to fill up the truck. 75 bucks and the pump stops. Reinsert the card and it says see cashier. Went in and they had the nerve to say you can only use your card one time. I said what the heck are you talking about. You guys are nuts and I about exploded on them. I ended up biting my tongue and walked out and went down the street to get the rest of my gas.

Look to me like were heading back to the days of your clients were in a radius of your home were you could push your mower on foot with your rake and box of leaf bags tied to the handles.
Simpler times some time I wonder why we changed. Maybe we should look at the 50's again simple time No Worries. Just fast cars, sock hops and Rock N Roll.
