Gas was $2.09 for a while. Every Stripes store now has $2.25 gas. What is going on?

Just found this. It's apparently a refinery issue:

It's the same song and dance every year. I wish that the govt would get involved and build refineries for the country, perhaps even nationalize the industry like Mexico. I wonder if those countries have any issues with refinery capacity. In the United States, there's really not an incentive to build more refineries if they can just raise the prices and make the same profit margin or better.

It's not quite that simple. There hasn't been a new refinery built for 30 years and many have been shut down. It's an environmental issue in many cases. Same with coal power plants.

There's an LNG facility near me which is expanding to export gas. It's been there since around 1980. There are daily protests at the gate even though all the approvals have been granted and construction is proceeding.

Gas prices are $2.05 today in San Antonio. Why does CC get so much disrespect?

THEYRE AT IT AGAIN. On my drive to San Antonio today, all of the gas I saw was $2.04-2.09. An outlier up 281 north in a Hollywood Park was $2.27. We are being robbed.

Gas prices are going up all across the country, how does that translate into disrespect for CC?

A price difference of 20 cents/gal is a BIG DEAL, espec since there are so many refineries here in CC.
