Yep, they're playing "Let's screw the public" again, I mean still! Across Indiana this morning, there is a 98 cent difference in price!! No reason for that.

Glad I filled my heating oil tanks early in the Summer. It's now 60 cents/gal higher (locally) and distillate inventories are running low so no break in price any time soon.

Oh, my, my, my. Just weeks ago we read of inventories being at all time lows. What gives? Are they getting ready for their next surprise now, to withhold these inventories from the market so they can have their $3.50+ gallon gas price again? What better proof of antitrust violations do we have -- and not a person in control in DC will lift a finger because too much of his campaign money comes from these cronies.
