Gas Hike Reason

Gas Hike Reason

I am pissed! Last week, middle of the day on Tuesday a station in the smaller town I was in raised their gas prices as I was going by from $3.29 to $3.65. I let my wife and a couple of friends know that they should get gas if they were close to in need via text a little while later, anticipating that a big hike was in the works across every where. I also waited with much anticipation to see what crazy stuff was going on somewhere, whether it be a refinery fire or shutdown, escalating stances from Iran again, or just some middle eastern uprising crisis otherwise that was causing the spike. And nothing, no news at all, and though oil threatened higher on Tuesday, the next 2 days oil prices actually fell sharply downward. What the heck?
