    Funny how they spike the price 30 cents at a time but lower it 3 or 4 cents at a time when it goes back down. Playing that numbers game........

    We all have to keep in mind that when prices were at an all time high, the fed and state govt got more in taxes. So maybe they raised the tax percent on each gallon without asking our permission???? :pk:

    :hello: The Feds have a higher tax per gal now than 20 years ago or so. Also a half a dozen or so states have as much as 80 cents or more added on tax like PA MI NY CA & so on. Crude is now $33.09 a barrel. Last week it was $27 a barrel.

    Neither. Your gauge is inaccurate.

    Cause the gauge was made in 1987 when prices were very low. It needs to be updated like Windows
