I call B.S. on that whole pricing structure and the fluctuations. B@$+@7#$.

I paid $3.75 yesterday. I'm glad I filled up when I did. What's amazing is how events around the world can suddenly change the price of the gas that's already in the underground tanks at the corner gas station. I get the increase in the crude oil price as it's a fungible commodity, and MB, they all work that way. Watch what happens to the price of US soybeans when there's a drought in Argentina. But the price of gas that was already paid for by the gas station shouldn't go up. That's just gouging.

I love buying gas.

That's why I drive a Hummer.

Meat prices are at their highest ever. I think another recession might hit with all of these price increases.

There is no inflation, please go back to your regularly scheduled activity. All is well.

Interestingly, gas around here has steadily declined over the past week, to $4.09, then $4.08, and today $4.07. I love that it jumps UP by $0.21 but then comes down a penny or two at a time. I'd like to see their mathematical models for pricing. Ugh.

With fuel perks from a grocery store for one gas station, and fuel perks from a credit card for another, my husband and I got 50 gallons of gas for $20.20.
