    People have been screaming that fuel prices are totally bogus for a long time and this is living proof that Oil CEO’s are nothing more than greedy, money grubbing a$$holes. The economy is in the tank and gas prices continue to go up. Artificial inflation driven by false speculation and forecasting. Forecasters who are on the oil companies payroll and are told what to say and when to say it. Those companies are willing to bleed every dime out of every American even if they have nothing to give.
