So if you believe the gasoline prices are being manipulated by big oil and speculators, what should the true market price be? 19 cents a gallon, $1.50, $3.00? I was just curious what people here thought the price of gas should be.

Apparently we're a little out of the mainstream. Prices are holding in the $3.55-3.90 range for regular. Seems like only a couple of months ago ir was slipping pretty close to the $3.25-3.35 range. I hope we catch up pretty soon. It's still painful to fill the tank.

So what do refineries sound like on a still night? Stills? That is what the basic process is, after all. Next is a cat cracker. Probably hear that on a halloween night.
