    Gas has gone up almost fifty cents in two months, but dropping 1/10 of a cent is the big story...

      That's what I'm forced to pay, unless I go to a name brand station for $1.83.

      The Obama propoganda machine stole that move straight out of an Orwell novel, first page as a matter of fact.

    Ever feel like you were in a bent over position, with a giant target on your bottom side? That's the way the oil industry sees all of us. They just placate us every now and then, raising prices over and over, then dropping them a penny of fraction thereof. What bs. Their dues are coming, with all the fuel efficient cars being built. Now you can spend thousands to save a few cents! Only in America!
