It seems that in some areas, stations are trying mightily to Raise gas prices, while others, like Arco, are Lowering theirs. Is gas going up, or only greed, with companies like Cirle K leading the way?

If you're talking specifically about Phoenix gas prices, you're probably better asking this question in the Phoenix discussion category where local Gas Buddy members can better answer your question. The General Gas Talk discussion category is seen by Gas Buddy members across the United States and Canada and likely won't know about specific gas stations in one relatively small but local area.

As for "stations are trying mightily to Raise gas prices...", not sure what you mean by "trying mightily". Either they're raising their gas prices (while others are lowering gas prices) or their not. If all you're saying is that some Arco stations have gone up a few cents per gallon and some Circle K stations have gone down a few cents per gallon, that may simply be normal adjustment due to wholesale price changes and/or contractual delivery agreements. If you're saying that Arco and Circle K were about the same price per gallon before and now Arco is up by 20 or more cents and Circle K is down by 20 or more cents (or even 10 cents each), that makes little sense as it would take away any competitive incentive customers would have to buy from Arco; and that's not realistic from Arco's business perspective.

Sorry, but you need to provide more information about local gas prices in order for people to intelligently respond to your question.
