    I personally dont care what the prices are, gotta have it, so ill pay it..

    what are your thoughts..

    wouldnt you think that it would be considered price gouging when you depend on it, cant get it from anywhere else that they raise their prices unneedingly by several percent when they realize more people will be using it..

    What demand? There is curently so much unused gas rt now the refineries ahve cut down production to the lowest they ever been. At curent rate of use the gas will go bad befor its all used up. Least acording to teh news on Monday morning.

    Reason for gas prises going up? The news said simple that the gas makers are cutting there production even more so they cna dirve the prises up. It ahs nothing to do wiht demand of product rt now.

    exactly. gas use is down quite a number of percent, yet prices still rise. the big problem is the monopoly the oil companies have on the market.
