Thread: Turn them in!!!

  1. Going up is one thing but gouging is another.Kicking you when are down is dirty.If wall street CEO's had a fair bone in their body's we would feel bad for them. I did not have a golden parachute just a fair retirement plain.

    Yeah,

    Unfortunately this happened where I live and gas went from 3.80 a gallon in one hour to 5.49!

    People are stupid! They caused it... I can only hope the attorney general will prosecute these people, as we had a new law go in effect on 1 July.... I can only bet that they will make excuses, just as they did when Katrina hit, but now... they are "REQUIRED" to prosecute them...

    Funny thing is.. you could find 1 or 2 stations that never raised their prices.... the ones that went to above 5.00 per gallon ALL RAN OUT OF GAS.. and as of right now.. they are still out of gas... They started the panic....they got what they deserved.. I hope they lose TONS AND TONS of money waiting to get gas in... while the people that never raised their prices still have gas... LOL...

    That's exactly what I've been trying to tell everyone. Speculators do just that, speculate. They don't influence the price of gas any more than thermometers control the temperature. Putting the blame on speculators is starting to make everyone sound like the liberals we love to ridicule.

    Yesterday the wife N I want on a short trip to a flea market about 40 miles away (Yum fresh Michigan peaches) to the west, while there I fueled up to the max as gas was almost 40 cents a gallon cheaper than at home. You could blame delivery costs, but I have a major fuel line/ depot less than 10 miles to the east, you could say it is demand, but then this was in a high demand tourist trap area, No not misinformed but someone is.

    You might ask what kind of nut would drive that far for peaches? local cost, 18-20 dollars a half bushel, they were picked green, refrigerated until they were ripe and have no flavor. 40 miles away is the fruit belt, you get them fresh off the tree from the grower... 5-8 bucks a half bushel, and they are full of flavor. Now that you can blame on delivery costs.

    They'd better be some damned good peaches!
