WRONG !! Oil plummeted today all the way down to $95 per barrel. But gas still went up 10-15 cent a gallon here today, thanks to CHU & O'Lenin II.

Oil and gas are overpriced period! Speculators see the economy recovering and they are putting bundles of cash into oil "to make money". This is killing the working man/woman and the goverment should do something about it. The truth about gas is that the crazy high prices are making demand go down each and every year but yet the price rises. Just doesn't add up anymore as supply and demand are dead. We use less gas but the price continues to rise. Nothing but GREED in the world today!!
