The U.S. and its partners are urging Iran to accept an updated offer at talks on the country’s nuclear program today.

Michigan evidently isn't impressed. The prices even went up in Menominee, MI, which tends to buck the trends. No price hike in WI, where all of Menominee's gas comes from.

"its called greed allowed by the bush administration"

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Not really true. As much as I hated Dubya, the REAL blame lies with 3 CONgressmen(Gramm, Leach and Bailey - all Republicans) and Slick Willie Clinton(a Democrat), for creating and signing into law the CFMA of 2000.

I don't think so, dollarwatcher. We know that the pump price will go up regardless of what's going on.

I wish the laws of supply and demand still applied but they don't thanks to the speculators. The speculators must be regulated. Raise the margin requirement and make them take delivery on their contracts. Sadly, the pinhead Republicans idiots will oppose any regulation, just as they opposed regulating Wall Street and the banks after the financial collapse. The GOBP has the interest of big business and the very wealthy (read big contributors) at heart, not those of the middle class. Vote them out in 2014!
