Gas prices up

I just wanted to let everyone know that gas went up as much as $.50 gallon over night in the Charlotte, NC area. Stations that were $3.699 last night were 4.199 today and I heard one person locally say gas might be $5.00 or more per gallon by tomorrow. The stations have also placed a 10 gallon limit on gas sales because of low supply. I don't know whether this will be a national trend or not, but if gas hasn't gone up or been limited where you live you might want to fill up.

I heard on the news a little bit ago that some stations in the Carolina's have gone up as much as $1.00 gallon in the past 24 hours. The news station said they had contacted our local congressman to get a price gouging investigation started. The representative stated that he had filed federal paperwork to get the investigation underway.

it does seem to be a trend. a few stations have mandated a 10 gal limit here.

i just went to fuel up at my regular newly(like today) reopened shell. lots of gas obviously(fresh fill in new tanks). got 24 gallons(11 extra in jugs). thanks for the heads up!

on a side note: i found out i have an $80 fill limit on my shell card. had to use another card to finish filling. what if i had an SUV?

Prices were the same this morning as yesterday. I filled up this morning at $3.59 but I am not sure if they have gone up since this morning.

As a note, they just said on the news that the refinery being shut down is making home heating oil and not gas.......so if that is true, what does that have to do with gas prices???

Bunch of thieves..................

Are you sure the limit isn't the station limit, and not your card limit? I've had pumps click off @ $50, reinsert my card, and pump another $20.
