We filled up in Plainwell, Michigan for $3.959 per gallon last night. In Kalamazoo, 30 miles south, it was $.58 per gallon more. We saved over $58.00. Prices are going in the right direction.

This is sort of the ultimate ripoff success, paying $4/gallon and being happy about it.

down here to 4.00, still rediculous, those republicans dont miss a trick, wait tell after the election and see what they do, i bet we will have to take out a loan to fill the tank. I found out recently that we a re sellin fuel to Mexico and canada, the oil man they interveiwed on the news said its just business, and they have plenty of fuel available. it is of course a lot cheaper in Mexico. dont know anymore who to beleive but i cant see why we would be selling fuel to foreign countries and at the same time claim we dont have enough here in america. last i heard  was the were selling the oil from alaska pipe line to japan. pretty good, burrow money from china to buy oil from middle east then sell fuel we have to foreign countries and in the mean time our oil wells are mostly shut down. theres a wrench in this system somewhere. about time for regualtion again as we used to have during and after WW 2 for yrs.

I have it on good authority that our fuel prices are set by Republicans at secret meetings at Willies Diner in Keosauqa, IA, each and every Wednesday. When we get a good demokrat in office, we will be in tall cotton, with fuel back to where a "working man" can afford it.  Oh, and make the greedy corporations tow the line and the rich pay their fair share.

Seriously, I have not seen anything that said we were short of fuel, which your post seems to insinuate. Respectfully, where did you hear that there was a shortage of fuel? Supply and demand cannot be "regulated" out of existence. You seem to favor rationing??? I don't get that .......at all. In WW2 times, there was a shortage of fuel and a world war going on. How do you compare those times with now?
