Haha! Because I voted for Bush, I was allowed to fill my car up with premium for $2.99 last night. Silly democrat!
Seriously, this price spike has nothing to do with our "oil man" president. It has more to do with unscrupulous station owners seeing an opportunity. At one station in Atlanta, yesterday, a station was charging $6.09 a gallon. Here in Florida, gas companies have to show a cost increase for increasing prices during any sort of crisis or the state (run by our "oil man's" brother, I might add) fines the heavily.
I can remember paying $0.89 a gallon when I was in college. :err:
