Opportunistic pigs.
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 11:35 AM by chalky
On the heels of the explosion in London--gas prices have gone up $0.12 a gallon today here in Texas.
Friend up north said their gas prices shot up 80 cents today.

1. Yup, home heating oil too...
Up at $2.10 a gallon here in Maine...doesn't look like we're going to have any 'window' of purchase opportunity before the winter...I pre-bought 400 gallons today even at that price just because I think it will be up around $3.00 by winter (plus there may be shortages), and my little house needs to be at least 67 this winter!)

2. Those people should be prosecuted. Just like the ones after 9/11
who were charging upwards of $5 a gallon in some places.

After 9/11 I went around to every local gas station I knew of that raised its prices dramatically (many didn't) and told them that I would remember them as sleazy opportunists and would tell everyone I know to never give them a dime again.

3. The prices were widely expected to rise today already!
Oil just went to a record high this week, $61 a bbl. So I must say it isn't a big surprise and I suggest you ain't seen nothing yet...

4. Now is the time when heating oil is being manufactured
For Fall delivery. That diversion is expected and on top of terror, Saudi King's demise, and demand. Face it these oil hit man have the world by the sac.
