Gas - Getting Robbed Without A Gun


CITC blogs about whatever is on our minds, and right now, the price at the pump has me steaming. I'm now up to $60.00/week, and I sincerely believe stations are watering down the gas because it is not lasting as long.

In the D.C. metro area, even regular gas has cracked the $4/gallon mark. Plus gas I've seen at $4.19 and premium gas as high as $4.30. It is SCANDALOUS, and apparently the prices are not going to go down any time soon. I believe one Exxon executive indicated last week that Americans were just going to have to adjust to gas at $4.00. Unreal. We definitely need to find some alternative energy source, mass market it and make it affordable, because this is straight ridiculous.

What are the gas prices in your area?

That picture is both hilarious & the truth. I bought gas yesterday & I don't even think the needle moved. It's terrible.

Too damn much! Last night when I came in I think the cheapest I saw was $3.79. I never thought I'd see the day where I'm breaking my neck for $3.79 a gallon for regular.

Girl, I would probably lose my mind if I saw $3.79...Sad.

Gas in my area right now is $3.69. There was a gas war a few weeks ago near my home, and the two stations were charging $3.12 a gallon, which is certainly no steal, but better than what else we were offered.

This is just scary and oil execs continue to get rich along with Dubya, who is also a Texas oil man.

Hey,
We have cracked the 4.00 mark as well. This one gas station is really funny, you can leave for work and see one price and later in the day you literally see the man changing the number to another price....what a clown.
