    Mike, just ran up to Giant Eagle, and for giggles I drove past the Speedway at 5th and Northstar it dropped from 2.65 to 2.55. I don't get it, 8:30 it is 2.29, 12:30 it is 2.65, 6pm it is 2.55.

    Maybe I will get lucky and have to drop some salt tonight to get some gas money.:waving:

    JPP,I hear you this is getting old now! You get in a hurry in the morning and don't want to stop and when you have a chance to its up 30 cents. I was in Sunoco the other day and the guy said they raised it twice that day because the district manger said $2.29 was to low so they raise to $2.39 then to $2.49. It really makes no sense I wonder who is really setting the prices, now if this is not price gouging I do not know what is.

    Don't know I refuse to look..it hurts too bad!No use in adding any additional stress to my life by paying attention to a price on something that I have to have and have to pay for no matter what to run my biz.
