Pure price gouging and no one to stop them!
The barrel is up for two days and it is back down today.
The price of a gallon of gas never did go as low as it should have but it is so easy to jack it up.

Of course they are going back up. The powers that be lowered them to avoid any Christmas riots. They are still not powerful enough to stop that but will soon.

Remember to keep checking www.newmexicogasprices .com. It's more up to date then the AAA site becase all the numbers are updated by local people. I know, because I'm one of them. Right now on the site, you can see that Pic Quiks are the place to avoid!

Ok someone explain to me why an inceraes in crude last week already translates to an increase at the pumps. The oil companies have not even refined the stuff yet! The stuff does not magiclly get transported over night to the takn in the ground. The state should enact a law that will not permit the retail folks to raise prices until the refined gasoline is in the ground on their sites. Its pure profit on speculation. What happened to the Mayor's task force Lip service as usual!

It's called free enterprise capitalism. We don't need government controlled pricing. If the price is to high, move it on down the street, change your mode of transportation . . . Energy companies and their investors are not running a public charity. Their duty to their stockholders is to give them the best rate of return possible.

If you noticed that when the gas prices were high, people stopped buying, and the price went down, now that the price is low, more people are driving and using more. Supply and demand...the more you buy the less there is, so prices go up. If you cut back on driving around crusing and going to the mall the prices will go back down. Conserve!
