Price Fixing

When the average price of gas in PA is 21 cents greater than the national average you have to ask if there is collusion among retail gas stations in PA. In western PA $3.65/gal has been the gold standard with little variation. The average national price as of yesterday was $3.44/gal.

The current price seems high when you factor in the commodity price of gas along with the sales taxes imposed by the feds and PA and the PA oil franchise tax. Western PA also gets gas from refineries in the Midwest so Sandy is not a factor.

When you fill up a two gallon gas can right to the two gallon mark and fork over $8.00 there is a lot more than collusion going on with the pumps in PA .

Times are changing everywhere and the USA is not immune to it . The criminals are getting desperate robbing people on the street and in their homes .

Fuctor in living in the USA. There is a price to pay for such protection and privelege .

Don't bet on it. The oil interests take care of both parties.

She will have a full plate to go after . She will need a bigger staff to go after all the crooks digging into the cookie jar.

Would you believe it if I told you every state agency that gets taxpayer money is crooked . It's a taught and learned experience working for the state and if you're not in the money you're to honest to work there .

If she goes after gas prices and irregularities at the pump she's punting .

At 39 cents per gallon, Pennsylvania currently is the 7th-highest taxed state for gasoline. As part of his transportation initiative, Gov. Corbett has proposed lifting the cap on the "oil company franchise tax" and making that tax burden even higher.

Look for an increase of 29 cents per gallon if Gov gets his way. Use sales tax or money from Gen Fund to fix roads!

"Price Fixing"- Where are you getting these large spreads between Western PA gas prices and the national average?

GasBuddy shows average Pittsburgh price at 3.728 and national average at 3.653, a spread of 7.5 cents.

On 02/15 there are 5 Pittsburgh area gas stations at 3.55 and 4 at 3.59, well below the average of 3.728.

Westmoreland County is 90 percent locked in at 3.85.
The only major variance in in Vandergrift with a price war between a Citgo and Valero station.

In Westmoreland there are only a few players: Sheetz, Sunoco, Cogo and BP.
