    Even if prices continue to drop they will mysteriously rise before the election. After all, the Obama wants to eliminate the billions in oil subsidies currently given to the oil companies while the Republicans would like to keep feeding the pig.

    What did Obama say or do to make world oil prices go down? Obama Snake Oil Co always said that gas/oil prices were high because of him, not the world oil market. Well... tell me Ms. Tin Foil hat what he said/did??!!!!

      Yep, on 1-20-2009 (the day he became Golfer-in-Chief), the average price nationally was $1.84 per gallon.

    The bottom line is that Trade-Wilco has the monopoly in this area, and they are not going to drop prices but so much. I mean, we really don't want the Williams family to lose any money do we? Then they wouldn't be able to have things at ECU and other places named in their honor because of huge donations.

      First, you know they were bought out by Hess, right? Second, have you looked up what a monopoly is recently? I think Sheetz might disagree with your definition. Third, who cares why someone gives money to charity? Isn't it a good thing that at least someone cares enough to give ECU some additional funds?

    The dem hedge funders in 2006 raised the price of gas and again before obama got elected, now obama wants to make it double what it is now... We need it to be about 1.25 a gallon.

    Free market at work, folks. Gas is a commodity and sellers will sell the product for as much as the market will pay. It is ridiculous to see folks whining about gas prices and blaming gov't (either Republican or Democrat) for not reducing the prices to consumers. I will say that I find it ironic that alot of conservatives will stridently call for gov't staying out of things, especially "business," yet complain when gov't doesn't do "something" to reduce the cost of a gallon of gas.

    Why is gas 10 cent more in Chocowinity than in Washington? I have seen the same gas truck at a Washington Hess filling their underground gas tanks and doing the same at a Chocowinity Hess Station on the same day. Same gas...Same truck. Yet it cost 10 cent more at the Chocowinity Hess Station.
