gas pump nbc chicago

From Ed:  “Monday, October 28, 2013, 7:00PM:  Wholesale gas prices have jumped 17 cents since last Wednesday (thank you, refinery fire), and we are at the point where the retail price is pretty much the same as the price retailers are paying to fill their own tanks.  So, we are getting the trick instead of the treat, on Tuesday or Wednesday.  Estimated new price:  $3.45 a gallon. –Ed Aboufadel        So, fill up this Tues. AM if you can.  (pic. from NBC5)

    So….after reading the article in the newspaper yesterday that gas prices will continue to go down, they are going up today? Hmmm. I’ve been saying this for years. Every time there is something in the news about gas prices dropping, they go up. When is someone going to put two and two together?
