Last night I went to 9 different gas stations (in Williamston and Pelzer) before I found one that had regular gas for $3.64/gallon went by the same store this morning and the price had jumped to $4.70/gallon. They were showing on CNN this morning that gas in Sumter was selling for $5.69/gallon!!!! Some gas stations in the upstate are now limiting customers to 10 gallons. What is everybody else seeing this morning?

$4.29 at Pumpers near my house this morning. It was $3.59 yesterday afternoon. Ingles less than two miles away was $3.59 this morning. That's a 70 cent difference.

I don't understand why this is legal. It is illegal to jack up the price of anything else, such as batteries, water, and lumber before a hurricane- why is gas any different? The storm HASN'T EVEN HIT YET!

Well I just saw on a business report that the gas companies lost 20% in the last quarter, so they are trying to make that up, and they are hoping that the average person assumes it is because of the storms. HIGHWAY ROBBERY

Spinx on Woodruff at Five Forks at 9:11 this morning was $4.03 a gallon.

This is disgusting.

Gas in rural areas costs more because it takes longer to get it there.
