No outside impact?
Just raised gas prices, that’s all..................
Just raised gas prices, thats all..................
Yep that will be the major impact just as prices were going down.
Not much info as to cause, etc. but fortunately no injuries/deaths
I filled up Monday at Sam’s for $2.099 per gallon here in Ft. Walton Beach. It was the cheapest I have seen gas prices here in a long long time.
I was wonder what ‘incident’ would come along to jack them up again..........................
Yep, I saw some prices at $2.03 yesterday.
I saw $1.969 here in Tennessee this weekend
Be nice if it would stay this way or lower. But summertime is
coming and travel increases so look for gasoline price increases.
$1.98.9 at the Lake of the Ozarks.
Is it any wonder that no government investigation, state or federal has ever found evidence of manipulation of gas prices? It would be against their best interests since higher prices mean higher revenue for them too!
