And, just like in real estate, prices will vary, depending on location, location, location.

"I would not call it a spike," said Jessica Brady with AAA Tampa. "I would say there are some stations throughout the Tampa Bay area that maybe got a little optimistic about where crude oil prices were headed last week."

Not surprising. Need to keep the economy on perpetual life support. Let energy fall too low and the economy will take off. Raise it too high and you will sharply cut demand.

The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Gee I am sure glad this article spelled out the obvious truth that I see at the pumps. A 20cts spike atop a 20cts spike.

Now we are 20cts above the US avg.

Specu-traitors are at it again.
