    Well guys here we go again just in time for cutting season gas prices soar. Two weeks ago you could buy reg. at .99 a gallon. I
    checked them out yesterday and they were $1.24 a gallon. What the heck is going on? Thats 25 cents in two weeks. Does anyone have some insight on this?

    Its going to continue to keep going up. My dad has two mobils, and he keeps hearing they are going to steadily rise. Thanks OPEC.

    Wisconsin too-just filled up at 1.49 for mid grade. Sure am glad I remembered last year and raised my prices just enough to cover this.

    Its very simple. Two weeks ago Spring break started for colleges. This means lots of people travel home or south. Any time that the gas companies can predict high volume they are going to jack the price to take higher profits. Wait till easter. Then it will be every Friday all summer. We will buy gas on Wednesday this year.
