When I took my mother to work tonight we stopped at a minit mart and the cashier told her that gas would be fifty cents higher by in the morning . I saw on another board she said that it went from $3.47 to $5.36 a gallon in South Carolina since yesterday . What makes me so mad is that this is hurting children . I think about how many kids are going to bed hungry because of this crap icon_mad.gif I talked to a teacher on another board she said she could really tell its hurting kids she said she has a lot of kids bringing mayonaise sandwiches for lunch , I am just sick of this mess . I know we all are suffering because of this please forgive me for complaining. icon_mad.gif

Yeah, and while the offshore wells are shut down because of IKE, OPEC decides to cut back too, after all, the price might drop a few cents if there is plenty of gas out there!

Maybe some day those people at OPEC will find themselves stuck with their oil because the US has figured out how to get our own and OPEC can go fly a kite!

Amen to that. I hope they do get stuck with it and I hope we come up with a better plan of action soon. I think our gas in Georgia is suppose to be 5.00 by Sunday. icon_eek.gif

That's funny, dh and I were just saying the exact same thing. There was just an article on TV that gas was down to $103. a barrel. When it was that last time (a couple of years ago) price per gallon was $2.50 or so!!!!

And who says they're not gouging us!! icon_confused.gif

Everyone is hurting with these gas prices. Eight yrs ago oil was 12 bucks a barrel. Explain why it has gone up that much.

Yep...this morning gas here was $3.92 now it's $4.09. I just read the news that oil went below $100.00 a barrel. Why is gas going up? icon_mad.gif

I saw it advertised in NJ today for $3.31, and it was full service. Strange, huh? Here in PA, it's in the low $3.40's. I really do think that the OPEC people hate us.
