Two major Gas Gouges in five days have struck us here in Northeast Illinois. And, they weren't just a few cent increase, no siree!!! These were Big Babies. First, it jumped from $3.54 on July 10th to $4 at some point July 11th. And, I have heard that this 46 cents increase took place in just a minute.
Then, it dropped to $3.87 by yesterday. This morning, every station had gas at $4.20, a 33 cents increase, again, within a minute. I smell collusion.
I wrote quite a bit about it in my Down Da Road blog where I have also listed what Big Oil calls their Gas Gouges. This one is the return of the infamous "Summer Driving Season" which used to result in a 5-7 cent increase over the summer, but not anymore.
How can you go driving at these prices?
