Happy New Year to the entire GasBuddy community!

The spring delivered challenges for Great Lakes refineries and pushed Chicago gas prices to a new high. Similarly, the California summer saw major refinery outages and new record high prices.

The main lesson learned in 2012 is that the country is populated by a majority of idiots who do not take the time to educate themselves on issues and who are led to vote for socialism. As Michael Moore announced that he does not support the troops, perhaps it is time for the troops to stop supporting the idiots for whom they die.

2013 is not starting out really great as far as gas prices are concerned. Electrics for running around town and back and forth to work are starting to look ever better.
