We have jumped up over 32¢ in the last week and a half here. The price of a barrel of oil has dropped over $3 in the last 5 days, yet the price at the pump keeps going up. Because demand is down, they jack up the price to keep record profits up. I use to work for Xcel Energy here (a electric utility) and if we ran a business like they did, we wouldn't Be in business long. Like the oil companies, they are just gouging us because they can. The CEO's and board members continue to get bloated salaries and stock options, while they gouge us.
