What gives? the price for a barrel of oil drops $10 and yet there is no movement at all on the price at the pump. Yet the price per barrel goes up just a dollar and immediatly its up five cents at the pump. how about giving us a fri*kin break even if it is for a day!@!!

The gas station bought the gas in their tanks at the higher price. That could have something to do with it.

The prices here have gone down about 5 or 6 cents a gallon since the 4th of July weekend.

Gas costs what it costs. No sense getting all riled up about things we have no control over.
