This morning I saw a 76 and Shell gas station at $2.529 I think the lowest I have seen it just north of Seattle is $2.429 at ARCO.
I just paid 2.31 this morning. Washington used to be cheaper, what happened? Higher prices AND you have to pump it yourself, that's great!

You would think with refineries in our back yard it would be cheaper....

But now that we affirmed that the majority of the population wants to pay the HIGHEST gas tax in the country. :rolleyes: ......I guess cheapish gas is a fairytale.

When Katrina hit we stayed fairly steady and increased slowly compared to the rest of the country. Now that everyone else has gone back down.....I guess gas companies are holding onto the extra $$$ as long as they can. :eviltongu

Haven't seen anything close to $2.31 near me yet. Oh and Washingtonians can figure out how to get the gas in their own cars. :D I hate it when someoneelse gasses my truck up....it is too wierd. lol:cool:

Now that thay cant use the whole Katrina thing as an excuse to keep prices artificially inflated. they have been forced to lower the price back to where it was.
Where is your evidence that prices were "artificially" inflated?

Have you seen the politicians falling all over each other to lambaste the oil execs?

They smell easy votes.

Goddam politicians. :mad:
Yeah, it seems pretty short-sighted and stupid. If they attack our domestic producers they are only going to help increase our reliance on foreign companies.:angry:

Well - with elections like they are, politicians are *encouraged* to be shortsighted and stupid.

Or maybe that's just the way they are. :p

Am I in the PD forum? :think:

You all are some lucky ****ers. The cheapest place for gas is where I work at $2.479. Most other places are between $2.60-2.90 a gallon.
