Help. Help. I’m being gouged and the Government must save us!
(HInt: Try drilling in ANWR and off the coasts, developing coal resources, getting the EPA to back off on the refineries and car manufacturers, and by encouraging the building of nuke plants, you useless Gumm’nt teat-sucking numbs.)
No, why would I? It is very plausible to assume that other people had the same idea as you to buy at 3.94 thus reducing the supply while there was a sharp spike in demand. That will raise the price immediately. Also most gas stations only carry 1-3 days worth of supply.
