Front page of the paper here yesterday declared something about the government predicting gas averages with peak at $4.15 and will probably stay around there for 1 or 2 years.
ahem...ok, now just how do they know this??
Unfortunately nobody will ever be honest with us. So far stories have said that one of the most powerful men involved with US gas prices has thrown his support behind Obama and wants to ensure that no one votes Republican by hiking the gas through the roof and beyond. He's predicted that the bubble won't last much longer. I've also heard that the world is just using too much oil to meet the demand. Then there is always the idea that rich financial guys are sitting around causing it to go up on speculation.
The responsible party (not political party, but rather organization or individual most responsible) will never come forward and it is so hard to find a media outlet that doesn't throw around phrases like "The LIBERALS are responsible for..." and "if the CONSERVATIVES continue..." that you really can't trust anything since it all seems rather biased. Kinda like Congress and the House of Reps, those *******s.....
that word is probably gonna get censored
The gas stations that I wrote about yesterday that were about 15 cents less than stations of the SAME company a few miles away eventually caught up at $3.99. At least two of them were around $3.84 earlier yesterday while the others were around $3.95
