#*$&$# @($^$()$^ Gas Companies

Dang gas goes up 10₵ to 20₵ every flippen day out here. Now I’m seeing that 4 Costco’s have actually closed for lack of gas.

The real pi$$er is that looking at gasbuddy.com, other states are $1.00 to $1.20 less per gallon than we are!

Sorry, it's expensive for the oil companies to hire lobbyists and pay off...er donate...to politicians so they can keep their income tax subsidies.

Gas is $4/gallon here in Washington, too.

Washington and Cali are blue states who collectively made the political decisions that have contributed to clean air and environmentalism. High prices are part of that decision.

I chose to move to Colorado partly as a result of living in both states. No right or wrong, just no free lunch.

No offense intended, however this statement exhibits a lack of critical thinking. While I totally agree that there is a lot of money flowing around and despise how the federal government has morphed into a permanent political class that created and maintains its own feed trough, blaming anyone who exercises their rights as the current law is written is the height of folly.

If you really are committed to change, sell your gas vehicles, turn off your electric appliances and force the suppliers to bend to your collective will.

Saw $3.69 yesterday down here for reg, varies bwt that and $3.95.. don't much pay attention for the 93.. I don't need it..

As far as the California deal, apparently they have been having refineries issue not keeping up with demand, also other "issues" are involved and of course Californians burn "special" fuel... therefore yeah, fuel out their has always been expensive and higher than here.. However, if you ever breath the air out there, you would understand of the laws.., that has a price unfortunately... nothing political about it..either clean the air or choke and die...simple..

The station where I normally buy gas jumped 30₵ over night! The news said we'd be over $5 by Monday. That's insane! I realize that one refinery had a fire so production is down, and yeah, we had some heat for the past couple of weeks, BFD, if they (the oil companies/refineries) can show me irrefutable proof that it is now costing them more to process fuel, then I agree to a nominal increase, but a fricken buck over a 2 week period? I'm sorry folks, this is pure unadulterated greed likely driven by the need to raise 4th quarter profits.

I did a half 93 Half Corn fill up the other day and didn't look at the price per gallon but it seemed like it was the same.
