Gas was $3.98 last week. What the fuck!?
Have all the rigs in the Gulf come back online yet?
Yeah, it fucking sucks.
Seem to me the price went up from last week.
A refinery in CA blew up. That's affecting us.
This must be the after convention bump fred was bragging about.
I think it was over 4 bucks when i was in Cali 4 years ago. You guys must be getting really fucked now.
No it isn't. We don't sell any of our home drilled oil or refined oil in the US. We sell it all to the European countries for twice what it goes from here. The advantages of controlling the middle east oil barons.
In New Jersey, it's against the law to charge two different prices, based upon the tender used by the customer.
In fact, the law was enacted because of gas stations. A liquor store near me tried that shit with me once.
Also? Minimum $ amounts for credit card purchases is also illegal in New Jersey. If I want to charge a pack of gum, the retailer is not allowed to deny it.
Of course, they can just throw me out of their store too, but...
The place I go to goes back and forth with the 2 different prices. Most places, except for the 7-11s have a $10 minimum for credit cards 'round here.
They should be able to charge different prices. Why is NJ so anti business?
I'm paying $4.49 for 91 octane
Time to invade Venezuela
It's bullshit, it was down to $3.2x in June.
But you can report them. It's not by state. MC and Visa do not have a minimum, you can report them if they do not accept your CC for a small purchase and they can lose the ability to accept that CC.
I'm glad I got rid of my 17mpg truck and got my 33mpg go cart. I'm saving about $250 a month!
I finally got a mobile card with speed pass. offer of 6 cents off per gallon.
No longer will get charged 10 cents extra per gallon for using a credit card but I will save 6.
My Mustang is getting about 11.9 mpg.
