Does anyone know why gas is so high? Has the prices jumped this much everywhere else? Just wondering!

I figured it is because of two things:

1. It is traveling time due to the holidays and they always raise the prices during this time.

2. The election is over and neither side really cares about how it is effecting the common man anymore.

and they (big oil) know they can raise the prices and all we will do whine and moan as we fly down the hi-way getting 10 miles to the gallon.

Crude oil is approaching 90 dollars a barrel and $3 a gallon in most places.Another good reason to consider a more fuel efficent vehicle. I love my 'lil 2004 Honda Hybrid. Getting close to 60 miles to the gallon!
