With so many people expecting petrol prices to go up again in the wake of hurricane Ike, what do you think the petrol companies are going to do?
Price gouge, of course. They're going to use Ike as an excuse.
Here in Utah, greed is going to rear its ugly head. Despite importing our oil from Canada, and having a refinery right on our doorstep (I can see it as I type this), it's hard to imagine the local oil companies resisting the temptation.
It amazes me how stupid the oil companies think we all are.
