GAS: How can price go up 16 cents in eight hours?

On my way home Friday I noticed a gas station that had been at $3.49 per gallon that morning when I went to work and on the way home it was at $3.65. How could gas take that much of a jump in eight hours?

Someone needs to start keeping an eye on the gasoline wholesalers and stations in Tacoma and in the entire state. Seems they can post just about any price they want and say the cost went up. The price of oil hasn’t changed in weeks.

This seems to be another gouge ‘em tactic that we Washingtonians seem to just take. It needs to stop, and so do some of the sneaky taxes our government seems to push through. We all need to say enough is enough in Washington.

    It’s no different than fancy restaurants or movie theaters. They can keep raising the prices any time they want because we continue to buy the overpriced product.
