Americans are pretty hot under the collar these days, and it has to do with what they are paying at the pump. They watch TV, they are online and some even still read the newspaper, and what they are seeing and reading do not match up to what they are paying. While the oil prices all over the world are falling, the cost to them at the pump is rising. However, they aren’t the only ones who are made.
The gas stations themselves have been wondering the same thing. It’s been easy to blame the gas stations, after all you go in and buy gas from them. Don’t they control the price of gas? But the gas stations themselves are getting gouged by prices from the suppliers, or that’s what they think anyway.
There has been an investigation recently to try and find out just why it is that even as the prices should be going down they are one their way up. What gas stations are trying to tell their customers is that they are not the real gougers. They must, and will continue, to respond to the money they are being charged by suppliers.
The issue is that no one is quite sure when the gas prices are going to go down. Oil is getting cheaper so some hope that pay the winter months they will see at least a small drop off in price, but those that are holding their breath shouldn’t. If it hasn’t happened before, it’s not likely to happen now.
