I do! I can't understand why our so-called leaders don't see the collusion when 75-90% of the gas stations in a local area ALL raise prices at the same time. It's a monopoly as far as I'm concerned.

Every time I purchase some. Not like the old days when we had a relationship with the neighborhood garage/ gas station. I worked at a few stations when in my teens and respected oil companies then. Today, they do nthing for us but provide something they know we need and rip us off all the while blaming Wall Street and everybody else.
