The best site, probably already posted, is
[color=gold]Gas Buddy Link.
The link goes to Twin Cities Minneapolis/St.Paul location but if you zoom out... way out you can get a better
idea of USA prices.
There are also charts on their site to show trends over user defined time periods, comparing by location.
Gas was at $100 a barrel for a long time and we had 30% cheaper gas a year ago *I think*.
Why hasn't the price returned after that last price increase and decrease!?!?
Remember Libya, Tunisia etc...
Consider this: America is very spread out.
With the except of the eastern & north-eastern areas.
Our suburban and highways were designed to be this way.
It's not unusual for midwest and western Americans to travel 40-50 miles to work AND play.
(my MINIMUM commute to work has been 16 miles at closest and as much as 45 miles.)
Our controllers KNOW that Americans start waking up when per gallon gas price reaches $5.00.
They keep the price "mildly painful" so that even more American's won't wake up; they just complain.
TPTB are deathly afraid of the American people waking up.
However, since this is a conspiracy site, I'll add, check out Lindsey Williams on you tube regarding oil prices.
Its a trip down the rabbit hole.
