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?
