OUCH -- $3.02
Filled up the car last night at our neighborhood 7-11 and paid $3.02 per gallon for gasoline. Just a month ago it was $2.67. The Washington Post has a story today on the rising cost of gasoline and the pinch at the pump. The story discusses big oil, price gouging, refineries, drilling, and politics. We in Oklahoma have some experience with "big oil" and have become accustomed to lower than national average prices at the pump -- perhaps those days are over.
