    Gas prices went up 40 cents at the station next to school from the time I went at 9, till I got out at 11....Other stations I passed, went up 5-10cents in the same period. Why? Someone blow up something somewhere? O and of course, in NC, price gouging laws dont come into effect until there is a state of emergency :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Most of the time they will change the price when a new delivery arrives based on what they are charged.
