    3.14 is the cheapest that i have seen reg unleaded. I know that last oct 30th i was paying 2.25 and that was when the barrel of oil was not crazy. What the hell is going on they are making toooooooooo much money. unfortunately we still need to buy it but this is crazy. We need to boycott shell for a few months and then citgo and then mobil and so on so they will need to lower there prices just to sell what they need to, so that the stockholders are happy.
