    ...back up to a $1.95 a gallon... but then I hear on the news that the price of a barrel of oil is still falling. What the fuck.... so.... is there gouging going on?

    Of course there is. Not enough people losing homes or small businesses wiped out yet for the big boys.

    I think I paid $1.79 last time. I don't drive very much so a full tank can last me 2 weeks but still... why is it going up?

    My question exactly. Last I heard on the news oil was still going down, yet gas prices are on the rise.... WTF? ... :wtf:

    Gas was $1.75 here, and I don't drive much either. The boss picks me up for work everyday, and it's winter so I'm not riding the Harley, so the price of gas going up was kind of a shock to me. It's gone up $.20 since the last time I bought it.
