    Is the rest of America seeing the rise in gas prices as I am up here in the Northeast? Crude Oil was up to $90 a barrel Yesterday! They say that's the highest it's been since 2008.

    Remember what happened when oil went from $140s down to $30s and $40s. More speculation again by the banks and investors. Wonder which banks and investment firms will be bailed out after the next round of corrections.

  7. $3.09 here in PA. I calculated $3.50 in when I did my bids so I hope it stays below that.

    Gas seems to go up .10 in one day another .05 two days later and takes 3 weeks to come down a penny.

    That's the Gas Sations ripping us off. They figure Big oil can take a bite, why not them.

    They all network together generally. I know a guy who owns a station and they all speak with each other to stay within a certain range or the exact same price. Makes sence but doesn't at the same time.

    Pretty annoyed they've gone up this high so fast, seems like $2.60 would be a nice middle ground.
