Exxon is the highest....last week it was 3.59, today is 3.77. Not using my Exxon gas card, will go somewhere else.

Atta girl, rookie. You show that Exxon. I bet their stock takes a serious dip because of the loss of your business. They don't have Candy to take advantage of any longer. Exxon has violated Candy for the last time there in Virginia Beach.

Few years back in Texas i used to find Exxon always cheaper. But here it never is. For me Arco is now the cheapest.

Actually Sneakers55 I thought they earned a bit less.
The Mobile stations actually have very competitive prices around here.

All the stations around me are all the same price. One station goes up, they all go up no matter the brand of gas. We either pay the price or walk.

And for every dollar of gasoline they sell, they make about eight cents. Stop whining.

GasPriceProtest: How much of that income was from refining and selling gasoline and other products in the United States. Or how much money per gallon do they earn from a gallon of gas?

Sorry, but I just checked the Virginia Beach Gas Buddy home page (though it may be obsolete by now) and Exxon isn't listed among the highest priced gas stations.

Should we assume that you are also not using a CITGO, Shell, or BP card, three brands that are among the highest priced stations (at this time, based on prices posted by Gas Buddy members)?

Then I guess you will just have to sit and wait and not drive.
