That is not a price gap, that is a price gouge.

Could be, but the difference is only $0.20.

Some stations have not raised prices yet, and some stations have not been updated on GasBuddy.com yet.

Here in Illinois, we have prices ranging from Mid $2 range to the Mid $3 range. Most of the highest prices are in Chicago.

That is NOT a gouge. How much are you willing to pay for gas? If stations are running out, then the prices aren't high enough.

Paid $2.86 at a Mobil. 1 hour later it was up to $2.99. 1/2 hour after that it went up to $3.19. Thats 36 cents in 90 minutes.

Heard a blurb this morning that there is a shortage of the clean blend required in the Detroit area. Granholm was supposed to be asking the feds to back off this requirement for at least the next few weeks, and then asked citizens not to make a gas run, but to conserve instead.

I just topped the wife's Jeep off at lunch: $2.95/gal. in Sfld. Which is bad enough.

I suppose you'd rather be totally out of gas, rather than pay $4 for a gallon.

We're getting raped in the booty here too. $2.89/9-3.29/9 for regular and this has to be stuff that was processed a month ago, long before the price of crude oil went up. God Damn oil companies, God Damn OPEC.

2.99 a gallon up here outside Lousiville Ky

Are they using the hurricane as an excuse or is it all this "futures trading" crap thats running up the price?

No, she is already calling for something that the Fed's are way ahead of her on. She will not do a thing about the gas prices. We have a broke state and they are enjoying the higher tax revenue being taken in. MI has a fixed percentage of the total price, not a fixed $ amount.

Michigan's Attorney General is Mike Cox.

It is my understanding that our state sales tax (6%) applies to fuel sales. Why the hell would a tax & spend liberal socialist governess want to do anything about high fuel prices?
