    I don't watch the news to often, whats the reason and or excuse for gas prices to go up again? The economy shows signs of growth so they have to jack prices up again?????

    yeah im noticing prices going up. cheapest I can find is citgo in east dundee for $2.82

    It might also be due to the winter blend so hopefully they do not go any higher

    supply and demand. country is feeling a little better so it uses more gas, that drives up the prices.

    Exactly, basic concept of supply / demand. However with the insane amount that is shipped here that a small increase in usage on our part can make up the difference in price.

    I believe the weakening dollar is the primary culprit.

    C'mon, Mark. Think back a bit. It's that thing you used to earn in trade for work, often coming in multiples of said "dollar". These "dollars" could be traded for goods or services. Of course, that's all before this country sold itself to China and India, thereby causing the "dollar" to be worth about the cloth paper its printed on.
