JUST AN OBSERVATION
A few months ago, crude oil prices rose and in a tight synch, prices at gas pumps rose too, right up to $2.00+ for a gallon of regular here in FLA. As crude prices dropped, gas prices dropped too. So why is it that in recent weeks, as crude oil prices spiked again at record highs, gas prices at the pump have continued to slowly drop, now standing at $1.73 per gallon?
What little conspiracy might be keeping gas prices artificially low during this summer driving/election season? Just wondering.
