    Prices went right back up within one month's time, showing proof that the oil companies manipulate the market. I'm willing to bet, even with COVID, they still made scads of profit.

    We went back up to $1.839 from $1.619 within a week. Only the weird circumstances dropped the prices so fast, but that still took two months.

    They just bumped our gas tax .05 per gallon effective this past Wednesday. Greedy... <nevermind>

    I put 200+ miles on yesterday, I saw 1.88.9 - 2.09.9 for regular
    I paid 1.89 & 1.99 when I filled up...
    I`m talkin` `bout RURAL prices NOT interstate or big town competition...

    I`m sure glad it ain`t $5 no more,
    Dennis

    Soooo...spent two weeks in Washington State. Lowest low-grade price was $2.399 on I-90 on the East side of the Cascades, at the Thorp Fruit Stand and Antiques (no, I'm not related).

    Highest was a Chevron in Bellevue, where all the rich floggers live, $3.029 on low-grade.

    My last name is Thorp; the Army Engineer who laid out all the trails and then settled in the valley had the same name, but if there is any relation, it's wayyyyyyyyyyyy back in English history.

    Prices slowly rising here (NJ). Approaching west coast (but not CA) levels. $2.65 for 87.

    If we here in TX do not see any appreciable drop in price to reflect the week's Winter Wonderland Weather, I'm gonna call it that the fix really is in, no matter what political party controls the governments, Federal or State.

    I live within a mile of a 100,000 barrel per day Refinery here in Artesia NM and the price has gone up 40 cents since the first of January.
    Handyandy I am sure that you will not see a price drop in the aftermath of this crap, so you just as well start complaining......Trust me on this...

    I made a drive around San Antonio today, and every sign for regular unleaded was $2.199. Every. One. Of. Them.

    If that isn't a sign of antitrust price fixing, I don't know what is.
