Why hasn't there been discussion as to why SE Michigan gas stations charge more for credit/debit users? I have traveled to Florida, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and Norther Michigan in recent months and NONE of those areas charge a premium for using your debit or credit cards. People should be outraged! I drive out of my way to find one of the few stations that doesn't rob from card users

I can handle the $5 gas myself, no problem. However, if groceries and other things can't be delivered because of high prices, that becomes a problem.

Sometimes I think nobody really cares about price. They keep spending.

When it comes to gas, we don't have a choice. Those who commute farther than a bicycle can provide in a timely matter are forced to drive and thus, spend for gas. The main choice they have is the type of vehicle they drive.

The entire gas/oil issue is a political plot to fill the deep pockets of our crooked government. There's plenty to go around.

No there is not plenty to go around. That kind of thinking is what got the UAW workers, and automakers into so much trouble. It is what got the big money changers into so much trouble. The thought that they are too big to fail. In the early part of america they thought they would never run out of bison, run out of emu feathers, and a dozen other amenities. You Government Foe from Dearborn are oh-so-wrong. We have pulled more than seventy percent of the earths oil out of the ground allready, and China is just starting it's industrial awakening. You will see it happen within the next twenty years, bank on it.
