People complained when the barrel of oil dropped below $115- but the gasoline prices did not respond much.
We were told by a number of so-called "experts" that "it takes 3-4 weeks for the gasoline prices to respond" to lower oil prices.
Last evening- gasoline prices around the Metro in the $3.50 range suddenly shot up a dime a gallon.
We're told it's due to "uncertanty over Gustav"- which is just a tropical storm way down by Jamaica.
It didn't take weeks- nor days to RAISE gasoline prices- it took HOURS!
So you see Big Oil's pattern- blessed by the Bush Administration (where do you think the Bush clan's fortune lies?).
Lower prices by pennies a week when oil drops significantly- raise them by nickels- dimes & quarters in hours when there's the slightest perturbation.
I'll let you get back to your big-screen....
