I have only one word to say


CORRUPTION


Somethin­g stinks and it isn't the exhaust from my vehicle.

Up $0.50 from last year, does that mean we can expect a higher raise by next summer?
I may have to start looking for a commuter vehicle. 32 mi. one way to work and an SUV are starting to be very adverse to my pocket.

Just to really get your goat heres a sample how gas stations work (from someone I know who owns one)..

Say for example a barrle of oil is $40.

Day 1. Gas station buys a tanker load (8,000 gal) at $1.25/gal and is selling it for $2/gal.

Later that day the price of a barrel of oil skyrockets to $50 and now gas will cost a station $1.50/gal. Station owner raises his price to $2.50/gal. But yet its still THE SAME GAS he bought earlier that day for $1.25/gal. He wont get another shipment of gas until 5 days later.

But yet if the price of oil goes down, teh price he charges doesnt drop right away.

Silly huh?

That's how the business has been for years and tears. There's a min. markup, but no max markup. If I had a business, I'd do the same thing.

$2.71 for premium in Racine today.

Gas prices are making me think of purchasing a rocket again, however, I value the walking experience and I would like to do it normally until I grow old.
