They got everyone here in Kentucky all hyped up and so many people were freaked out about gas going up 20 cents that a lot of gas stations actually sold out of gas. People were waiting in line for hours. Mission accomplished on the oil companies behalf. So now our governor has declared a state of emergency of some sort and opened a price gouging investigation. Not that anything will come of it but I hope some of these places get their a$$es busted for screwing everyone over.

i drove past a station here in michigan this mornin and saw it at 3.99/gal went back about 3 hours later and it was at 4.09 i should have filled up when i saw it but it was only 10 cents higher. everywhere else is at 4.15 and up and regular gas is just over that. didnt think i would ever see gas be higher than diesel.
