IL has been getting hosed with gas prices for the last year. A month ago there were only 3 states that had gas over $4: Alaska, Hawaii, and Illinois. WTF, our gas was more expensive than California's???

The oil speculation bubble is getting CRUSHED.

I've been waiting to fill up for about a week now, because I know every day I wait is another $2-3 saved.

I'd like to wait until my next trip out of Bloomington. This town, for whatever reason, is .10-15 higher than any of the neighboring towns. Which is weird with all the damn hippies in their Prius and scooters.

I need to stop doing that, especially since Porsche has controlling shares of VW AG.

Still lots of college kids that they can pillage for all their parents are worth. Was the same way in W.Lafayette. Soon as you got across the river gas was .10-.25 cheaper.
