Gas prices out of hand

I live in DC, and just heard on the news that the average price for regular is the highest anywhere in the county.

$3.30/gallon... yikes.

When will the maddnes end?

It will get MUCH better after all the pipelines and refineries are repaired.

Guys enough with the gas prices. When you take into consideration all the work that goes into refining crude oil into gas (Or petrol for those across the pond), gas is cheap. I'll be happy with the 3.25/gal I spend here because I actually take that into consideration. Now, when it gets to 5.00/gal, then I'll start bitching. But cmon. It's not really THAT much...

That's because of all your taxes (Which is also why it's about that price across the pond)
