5 Dollar a Gallon for Gas is here in SC

CNN just showed several stations selling for well over 5 bucks.
In North Carolina, the Govenor just activated enforcement of
gouging laws becase the pump prices have jumped so high
in anticipation of shortages.

It would be a good thing for all of us to conserve a little for a few days.

Thats horrific.

Our gas last night went from 1.20/ L to 1.37 and I thought that was bad.

what sucks is the stations charging 5 bucks a gallon
for gas they bought for about 3 bucks a gallon, while
oil prices plummeted.

Thanks for caring and being good corporate citizens.


Unfortunately, there is little we can do except stop
patronizing convenience stores for anything except
gas, and limiting our consumption.

Who said there's nothing you can do. Pump up those tires.

I really need that barfing emoticon back Greg.
