There's a bill in the Texas legislature right now that will suspend the 20 cent per gallan tax for 90 days. 

Colorado was going to pass a similar bill but it FAILED!!!!

Average in Colorado Springs is 3.19 it was 3.09 two days ago

Friends in Louisiana are paying 2.68 this week.

We maxed out at $3.30 in Minneapolis this weekend.  It's down to $3.19 now, which is still ridiculous.

Summer driving season + addiction to 6+ cylinders + no desire to see prices lower by the people making the most money+captive market = $4 gas (and beyond)

The 6 cylinder addiction is breaking though - that's a start.

Don't forget the convenient timing of the shut down of refining plants for maintenance. ::)

Friday I filled up before driving my pickup to my parents house 2.5 hours away for $3.04.  At there house, gas was $3.29.  I need gas, but I waited until I got back here to refill.  This ******* sucks.
