I don’t see how the price of gas in our community can be priced much higher than in the states next to us. We are not short on gas, so why are the refineries allowed to make more money than when they are running? Is our gas really that much better than our neighbors? I just received an email from Tennessee and their price is $3.13. Does Huntington bulk plant control the price we pay? I don’t see why our government is not really shouting like the customers are. But the state loves the increase because they get more tax each gallon of gas. I guess we need to be happy the way we get screwed each time everyone wants more money. So we need to be puppets and just smile and go on like nothing happens. The price of gas is $2.82 the last time I checked, and if you add tax and profit it does not come close to what we are paying.
