    Just curious as to what the price of gas is in your area. Earlier in the year it was really high (around $2.00), but then it dropped to the $1.30 range and stayed there. Well, it has gone right back up to $2.09. This is ridiculous, especially with all this dry weather, the profit margins just aren't where they should be.
  2. Just saw A meijers $1.79 for regular and the prices around the Detroit area are going up everyday.

    Here in oil country, where we are normally lowest in the nation, we are at $1.65, the news says the national average is $1.45 - either they have old numbers or we have some localized gouging of some sort.

    Here in the Show Me State, they keep their employees busy raising and lowering the trices. Here lately it has been just raising them. Up to 1.60 now. WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!!
