Cheapest gas I could find here in San Jose is 2.23 a gallon for the lowest grade regular. The highest I have seen within the last three days was 2.53.
This sucks! They know you are at their mercy and that the people will buy gas regardless of what they do. It's to bad we couldn't do something to teach them a lesson. I liked those ideas I've heard in the past to boycott gas for like a day. But the problem is, very few participated in that plan.
