In Rogersville,Tn. the gouging started Thursday night. Gas prices started Thursday night @$3.59 and by 6:30Am on Friday it was up to $4.19. These prices went up without no tankers coming in to put in new fuel. I thought the gs stations were required to sell the gas they had in their pumps at the price they purchased it.

It will not do any good to report the stations for price gouging. We all know who the oil giants give money to in Washington. Also we have two oil men running the white house. Its just more money for them.

The Volco station in front of Peerless Steak House was $3.59 last week and today it is $5.50. Something has to be done and they need to do it NOW!!!. People like me that fill up 1 to 2 times per week and drive to our customers to do service oriented work are going to have to go out of business soon if this keeps up. I can't afford to go up on my price anymore. Ihave already lost over 40 percent of my customers because I couldn't absorb the extra price of fuel. And now with close to a $2.00 hike in 1 day should be against the law.

WELL, THOSE OF YOU WHO VOTED THIS WONDERFUL PRESIDENT IN PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACKS. HE IS KEEPING ALL HIS FAVORITE CONTRIBUTORS CLOSE AND I'D SAY IN MY OPINION ONE HAND SHAKES THE OTHER.I BELIEVE "CHANGE" WAS THE ROOT WORD FOR HIS CAMPAIGHN, YEP, RIGHT ON THE NOSE HIS CHANGE MAKES SURE YOU HAVENT GOT ANY "CHANGE IN YOUR POCKETS FOR YOURSELF". THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND RE FIX THIS IS TO VOTE IN A RESPONSIBLE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS A.S.A.P. THERE ARE LEGAL STEPS TO UNDO SITUATIONS AS THESE. ALL WE HAVE BECOME ARE PUPPETS TO OUR GOVERNMENT. I TRULY THINK IN MY OPINION, WE NEED TO RE-EDUCATE OURSELVES WITH WHAT GOES ON IN WASHINGTON AND ESPECIALLY AT OUR STATE LEVELS ALSO. CHANGE STARTS AT HOME (YOUR STATE). WHO OUT THERE IS WILLING AND BRAVE ENOUGH TO START CIRCULATING PETITIONS TO MAKE CHANGES? WE NEED LOTS OF DEVOTED CITIZENS TO GET A BALL ROLLING. I THINK IN MY OPINION FIRST WE NEED A NEW GOVERNOR. ONE WHO RESPECTS THOSE WHO VOTED HIM IN.AND I AM A REP. SO I'M NOT PREJUDICED AGAINST SNYDER CAUSE OF MY PARTY CHOICE. BUT AM REALLY CONSIDERING CHANGING TO A PARTY NEITHER REP. OR DEM. THESE NEWER POLITICIANS ARE IN IT FOR THE PAY CHECK AND BENEFITS CAUSE THEY DONT SEEM TO BE OUT THERE WANTING AND HELPING THE PEOPLE OF OUR STATE AND COUNTRY. SHAME ON THEM! CREATING SUCH DEBT AND COMMOTION FOR OUR FUTURE CITIZENS....ONE OTHER OPTION, WE ALL HAVE AND THATS TO KEEP PRAYING FOR A CHANGE FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND OF THE PEOPLE. WE NEED NEW UNITY WE NEED TO CARE MORE FOR EACH OTHER AND NOT RACE TO TURN AGAINST EACH OTHER AS I SEE WHATS HAPPENING.HAS ANYONE READ OR HEARD MR. MYCHAL MASSIE FROM CALIF. AND HIS OPINION ON WHATS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY NOW AND HE SEEMS TO SUM IT UP FAIRLY WELL FROM WHAT I SEE AND HEAR.
WELL, I STARTED OFF WANTING TO VOICE AN OPINION RE'; GAS PRICE GOUGING, BUT IT REALLY ALL BOILS DOWNS TO WHERE IT STARTES AT THE GOV. LEVEL.
ALL I EXPECT AND I'M SURE ANY LAW ABIDING CITIZEN IS TO BE TREATED FAIR WITHIN ALL RANGES OF EVERY RD. IN LIFE.IF YOU TREAT PEOPLE FAIR THEY WILL BEND BACKWARD FOR YOU AND PROVE THEIR GRATEFULLNESS. WE AMERICANS HAVE ALWAYS MADE SACRAFICES THROUGHOUT OUR LIFETIMES AND IT USUALLY REWARDS US IN THE END TWO FOLD. BUT, NOW IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING IN REVERSE. WE MAKE SACRAFICES AND OUR GOV.STILL TAKES MORE WITH NOTHING IN RETURN. WE , THE PEOPLE MADE THIS GREAT COUNTRY WHAT IT IS TODAY. OUR GOV. SHOULD HAVE MORE FAITH IN US, IF THEY EXPECT THE SAME IN RETURN. wOUNLDNT IT BE GRAND IF WE WORKED TOGETHER NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER?
