Refineries are going back on line so that should help bring down gas prices.

We shall see. The EIA usually only reports "facts" that hurt the pump price.

This news is getting old. The refineries will just cut back on production to keep the price of gas artificially inflated.

you watch they'll have more refineries go down for maintenance to keep prices above $3.00 a gal.

with a $ 2.80 wholesale price, retail SHOULD be about 3.30-3.35, not 3.85 as in NW Ohio. Greed lives.

Gas prices are not determined by supply and demand but rather by greed and speculation.
