I’m just wondering why our gas prices are so high here in the Danville/Madison area when the national average is $3.78 and everywhere around us is even cheaper? In Chapmanville it’s $3.84.
It’s bad enough when oil futures go up and the stations run out and jack up the price that very day even though they won’t get the gas made from that oil for at least 3 months (that’s how long it takes to go from the well, to refinery, to the pump) and then they don’t do the same thing when the prices go down.
Going by historic price per gallon compared to price per barrel the current price we pay is over $1.00 more a gallon than it should be.
If you remember a few years ago when gas was this high the barrel price of oil was around $140. It was a little over $88 yesterday.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m tired of filling up my tank and feeling like I was just robbed.
