Here we go again!

Prices are going up again. The pumps are lined up and the big rumour or reality is that gas was $2.25 a gallon this morning
Can anyone verify this? I paid 103.9 in New Hamburg and they were lined up!
I tried flying electric but the cord kept coming unplugged!

We are all going to continue being raped here unless we do something about this bullshit! We should all band together and stop buying gas, get on our bikes...... do something. As long as there are people that will buy it they will keep jacking the price up. Perhaps just a rumour, but I heard the price of gas will top $5.00 soon!

Just my opinion.

What I want to know is that Hurricanes are nothing new to that part of the world. Over the past 20 years gas hasn't jumped everytime there was a Hurricane.. hell not even last year... so why now?

Especially when we don't buy refined gas from south of the border. Guess itr's just the oil companies putting the screws to us again. What's next gas shortage in Canada because all our refineries will sell to US first.

Hell I just might as well convert my van to glow fuel as the prices are getting closser!

Are we going to see price hikes every time it rains or snows

Sure glad our Federal Government are stepping in........ NOT!
