The funny thing is that the gas sitting in the station's storage tanks
and in the distributor's storage tanks was all made and paid for from
cheaper oil. They are just jacking up profits because they can and not
because the fuel already in these tanks suddenly cost them more.
I can see them doing it on future deliveries where their cost is higher
but doing it on existing lower cost stocks is just plain people making
increased profits off other's misfortunes. They are no different than
street looters coming in on the heels of a disaster.
