I filled up in St. Clair Shores because I am there every Wednesday. This week, I paid $3.87 a gallon.

I live in SC, I pay $3.11 and still feel like I'm getting ripped off. $4.25 +/- is absolutely obscene. Greed and avarice are certainly in play.

Speculators are to blame--they bid the wholesale price of gasoline up higher than what supply/demand would do under normal circumstances. For instance, the tornadoes thru the prairie states were to blame for our rise in prices--supplies were not endangered, but speculators use that fear to drive prices up. And innocent consumers pay for their greed...
