The oil/gas industry continues to tell us that they’re not gouging. They blame all the prices on economics/supply & demand. 

 So, if it’s not gouging, why is it that exactly one week prior to the long Memorial weekend, prices went up more than $.40 per gallon, only to magically go down $.30 a gallon on exactly the day after the long weekend was over?

And I don’t want to hear the bs about “you should feel lucky” to be paying “only” $3.50 a gallon. People in Europe and the far east are not as dependent on their cars in order to make a living. We are the land of the mega-suburbs, people. We have to commute. And unless you’re in a large city like NYC or Chicago, public transit is not really an option.
