That being said, there is no argument that the gas companies are making record profits, more than double what they used to make, so for them not to drop the prices in accordance to what the price per barrel is, is gouging the country.
You can't say "well there are other reasons". That's simply not true. Look at the price of gas years ago when the price per barrel was under $100, the price per gallon was a lot less than it is now and they didn't go out of business because of it. The gas companies have been waiting for this to make much larger profits.

Everyone incorrectly blames Bush...it's the gas companies. Guess what, no matter who becomes our president will still have this problem too. Until we get off our dependancy for the "black crack", we will remain in this situation.
"What does the average oil company make today on the sale of a gallon of gas? Ten cents.

The federal tax on gasoline, on the other hand, is nearly twice that. Then there's state gasoline taxes. (If you live in New York, for example, you're paying 68 cents a gallon in taxes.)

If Exxon is gouging us at ten cents a gallon, what exactly is the federal government doing to us at 18.4 cents a gallon?"

Oil Company Profits

The Tax Foundation - State and Federal Treasuries "Profit" More from Gasoline Sales than U.S. Oil Industry

Can you give us a definition of "gouging" ?? What amount in profit is acceptable to you before it becomes "gouging" ?

$3.19 is as low as I've seen it around my way. Most places are in the low $3.20's

Re: F... gas prices

The Exxon and Wawa nearest to me is $3.11. However, the Frederick Costco is selling it for $2.92. Supposedly there was a huge line over the weekend, many deep, and long wait times.
