    I saw a tanker unloading at the quickie mart, so I told the driver "I used to think gasoline came from crude oil - but now I know it comes from big shiny trucks!"

    Was 3.13 down here in Florida yesterday. Today it 3.25, 3.39, depending on where you look.

    Gotta love those ME assholes.

    $2.97 here, but it's been going up steadily. I'm glad I filled up my tank in 1966.

    It has zero to do with the ME

    That gas has already been bought and paid for at the lower price.

    But they stick it to the consumer and raise prices based on current news.

    And then make huge extra profits.

    People don't seem to realize.

    That it takes several months for oil to be shipped, refined, and then sold at the pumps. :doubt:

    Nonsense.

    The people at the individual stations have to purchase resupply at the higher price, with the fuel they already have in their tanks.

    I've been watching this for years and the spreads between the spot price for RBOB and the pump prices remain rather stable.
