Heard the same thing Jack...prices leveled off here really quick when the Arkansas Attorney General started walking in gas stations wanting to go over their purhcase orders...

Yes that actually happened

What really burns me up about this is that when the price/barrel was down before at less than $95/barrel, we weren't seeing the price/gallon as high as it is now.
Legal extortion.

Too bad other states' AG's don't follow the lead like Arkanthaw's did... I mean, Arkansas... (sorry Gene... ).

Hook 'em horns...

It's not looking like we'll make it this year, Steve. Would dearly love to get away for more than a weeked but can't take the time, we're pretty booked. This is a great time of year for a rally, too!

Make sure & get some good photos this year! Oh, and so as not to hijack, diesel here's still $4.09/gal. at my regular station... am waiting for it to rise as gas did because of Ike... it's been 4.09 for the last couple months or so - seems to have stabilized at that.

This is nuts!

Is it just happening around here or is it happening where you are too?

Gas price up and oil price down?????
Go figure that one!

The news this morning reported over 1,000 emails and phones calls reporting price gouging here. Folks are taking pictures with their phones and sending them to the Attorney General's office. And they are investigating EVERYONE of them!

Prices on regular are only up about 20 cents a gallon here in our part of Florida. Diesel has not gone up at all with prices between $4.05 to $4.35. Prices going up at all, are pure BS, look at the wholesale prices here: Great Pacific Trading Company Commodity Charts and Quotes

I want to buy a gas station, as reported this morning:

Light, sweet crude for October delivery tumbled $3.02 to $92.69 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange by noon in Europe. It briefly fell as low as $91.54. Overnight, the contract dropped $5.47 to settle at $95.71, the first time oil closed below $100 since March 4.

We sure won't see any change at the pump. The local Shell station was at $4.09 for regular. Another new change at the pumps is a different price for cash or credit card. The credit card price is $0.10 per gallon more! Sorry, but I don't walk around with $105.00 cash in pocket all the time.
