gas prices going up again ???

well yesterday on my way to work i drove by the stations looked at the diesel price....was 2.99......drove by on the way home went up to 3.09.................drove by this morning still 3.09...........drove by on the way home tonight...........up to 3.29

now can you tell me how in the hell does it just 30 ****ing cents in a day and a half????????????????????? but drops maybe 2 cents in a week??????????

if government could do anything anything at all they should be looking into getting gas dropped and set that a a price of maybe idk 2.00 for gas aand 2.20 for diesel.......

its getting rediculous....this happend 2 years ago when i bought my first diesel it was 2.99 then it jumped to 5 dollars after i bought it.........now it bought my new one when it was 2.99 now its rising again

i mean if the government wants to help people maybe they should help by helping try and pass a law from getting raped at the pumps lol i guess if they can pass stupid emissions laws then i guess they can set a cap on gas right?

Supposedly, according to articles I'm reading, there is a demand on heating oil in the east due to the colder weather that is now got much of the country in it's grip. Rising demand in heating oil means a higher demand for crude oil to produce it....and since they are paying higher prices for crude, anything made from crude gets a price increase....demand up/prices up.

we dont use heating oil here, so we dont have nearly as much demand.

We have lots of natural gas

Economists were predicting a spike in fuel prices now, up to $2.70 a gallon average in the nation, and then up to $3.00 a gallon by spring.

Wow, great idea. Just cripple the system when it's trying to recover.
