I have always believed the oil companies and the market speculators manipulate the cost of fuel, but I highly doubt any of them would want to lower the cost of gas to help Obama. I'd expect them to keep the price high to make people angry and cause them to look to Romney for relief.Has anyone noticed how the gas prices have dropped this week? In Michigan it is down to $3.23 a gallon, that is about a 40 cent drop, could it have something to do with the election being only two weeks away?
I paid $4.31 just South of the Golden Gate this past weekend on a road trip to CA.$3.95 for Regular at Costco this morning. This is the first sub $4 pricing I have seen since August 7th.
On the way home I noticed my corner gas station was still fleecing motorists on 101 for $4.70.
