    Nope. Just an asshole. Simple. Has zero to do with his “politics”.

    And I don’t think a leopard can change their spots ...your boy was a Dem and HUGE supporter of the Clintons ...now he’s Mr Conservative? Ok. I got this prime property in Arizona with ocean views I’d like to sell you also.

    Sounds like it's actually a bit about his past politics to you... which contradicts some of what you said (2 things actually, but whatever)

    Never knew he changed parties, interesting.

    Oil is trading worldwide on commodity exchanges. It isn't cheaper from the Middle East and then marked up or whatever it is you are trying to say.

    What can cause a spike price is when supply is hindered.

    Well, if $2.99 is the average then unless everybody is at that price some must be over $3. Also, most of us would round up and say $2.99 gas is $3/gallon.

    How is it gouging? LOL. The difference is likely due to things like labor, rent, and other costs being higher in certain areas.

    Have you ever eaten at a diner in NYC and then compared its prices to one in central Jersey? Is the NYC diner gouging or charging more because the rent is higher, the employees make more because their rent is higher, food and other supply costs are higher, etc. Not to mention taxes.

    So you have never changed a political view? Some people learn and grow.

    Did PA gas ever drop below $3 a gallon? That state is the epitome of price gouging around here.

    Gas in PA has been over $3. for over a month now. Gas has always been around .30 more here than MD for years because of the state tax increase. But lately it's only a .15 difference. Did MD increase their gas tax or are they gouging .?

    Greg ...having read your posts....I seriously doubt you’ve ever changed your political views. Same with most of the conservatives here.

    As for myself...yes I’ve changed views. Away from hardline conservatives to way more libertarian views. To me Both sides are too extreme.
