Are the taxes on gas really that high in DC? The point remains the same, but we’re sitting at nearly $2 per gallon less expensive.

Across the river from DC in Bethesda, MD, gas is going for $4.79 a gallon.

That may be the gas station over by the Kennedy Center. For some reason it’s always about $2.00 higher than the national average. Guess they don’t want anyone to bother them.

I wouldn’t be suprised if they are being intentionally manipulated by “whoever”....and I don’t care.

I've been thinking the same thing, however I believe that those who are manipulating the prices will continue to raise them until about September, when they'll magically crash, and Obama the messiah will claim the credit for the newly reduced gasoline prices.

I live in Illinois too. It amazes me that, despite the horribly mismanaged state economy, massive debt and the fact that the dims have been running this place into the ground for the last 30-40 years, the ignorant voters will continue to elect the very same dim senators and congressmen that got us into this mess in the first place.

I swear this has got to be one of the dumbest states in the nation.

or maybe they are being raised now only to decrease right before the election so OB can claim credit.

Probably the only people who buy gas at this station are people who get to send the tax payers the bill for it......

You got that right!.

I’ve lived in the WDC area for about 30 years. If the average taxpaying citizen saw what goes on around here, tar and feathers would be the best selling thing. Your tax money drives this area. Money and power slosh around here like there is no tomorrow. So, Citizen, shut up, get to work (if you have a job) and pay your taxes to support this monstrosity. The government is full of your betters. They believe you are stupid. Let them know how you feel on election day.

I thought Soros manipulated it in 2008 with his speculative buying, maybe, there is some retaliation going on that he can’t control?

The oil companies and gas stations around the country have a reason to be ticked off at Obama for his traditional fuels policies.

The next really bad mistake to watch for by Obungo’s administration will be price fixing. When he does that, gas lines will form and he will be toast.

That looks like Foggy Bottom, closer to Georgetown than the White House... though it could be Pennsylvania Avenue. Isn’t that the Watergate hotel in the background?

I think he will make a critical misjudgment and put in “price controls” to try to win over the populous. It will result in gas lines and that should finish off his chances.

The one problem I see is if he does it in the month before the election. Will there be time for the lines to form to offset the goodwill the stupid people will feel about him doing something?

We need to remind everyone that price controls caused the gas lines of Jimmy Carter’s administration.

The moment that Bark issues an executive order about price controls (can he do that?), Oil companies and Gas Stations need to institute cut back on gas to force lines like this;

Send the excess overseas or cut back production.
