4. I agree.

Prices around here were already on the way up before the fire, and we all know that Labor day is coming up, and prices "always" go up in August at the pumps!

No matter what the prices were going to go up. This is the last chance for the oil companies and wall street to make some big bucks before the election, and they are going for it. I think they all see the writing on the wall, the Romney is toast, so they want to make sure they increase their profits just in case the republicans also lose the House and can longer protect them from rules such as tougher regulations on speculators.
