If that's so, then why is the price of gas going up again?
Gas prices were at $2.00-$2.04 a gallon in my neck of the GA woods on Thursday, depending on where you go, with some places even hitting under the $2 mark.
Today, gas prices were back up to $2.10-$2.14.
What's up with that, gas-gougers? Last-minute price spasm? A little subtle dig of the gouging knife? Trying to cash in on a few more billion before Congress passes that energy bill that they've done nothing with for four years?
All this commentator knows is that gas prices are STILL in the gouging range, and there's STILL a lot that needs to be done to fix this problem besides trying to curb consumer largesse. Even the Saudis know what our key problem is, and hopefully they'll convince Bush Junior of the real problem when they meet over in Crawford, TX, this week. Okay, so it's a long shot, but at least it beats the current tactic of sticking Bush Junior's head in the sand until after Labor Day.
Update (4/25 11pm): Did I say $2.14? Well that may have been the price at one gas station at 8am, but by 6pm, that same station had it for $2.19! It went up a nickel in ten hours time!
This is just GREED, folks. There's no excuse for this at all! We are all being criminally gouged!
