Little late to be "ramping up" as they call it! Artificial shortages in fuel supply is what's REALLY HAPPENING!!

Good, prices are starting to fall slightly, of course they go up 10 cents per day but go down 2 cents at a time.

Speculators definitely ran the prices thru the roof last week. But with local spot and terminal prices having dropped 50¢/gal in the past 5 trading days, it's now the station owners who are responsible for keeping average gas price in the Twin Cities, at least, around $4.20/gal.

The estimated minimum selling price today here is $3.77/gal, so any station selling above ~$3.90/gal is absolutely raping any customer who pays their price for gasoline. And that gap between the area average and minimum selling price, over 40¢/gal, is a new record according to the related data that has been tracked by a few people on the TCGP.com site over the past 5-6 years. The current gas prices being charged by station owners are utterly ridiculous.

Higher gasoline inventories ought to mean lower pump prices, yet the prices went up 4 cents a litre here yesterday.

I guess prices are high enough to make a killing (like we didn't know) so they are ready to start cranking out the volume!
