John Q. loses again at the pump

What is wrong with this picture? Over three days (May 30-31 and June 1) crude oil (per barrel) went down about $7.40. The public, average Joe’s saw 3 cent drop in gas prices at the pumps in this three-day period.

I am absolutely convinced that if this same figure of $7.40 was reflected in an increase of the oil market in the same three-day trading, an increase of 15, 20 and even 25 cents a gallon at the pump would have been seen to have occurred before the close of day of the third day at the pumps.

Why do we consumers continue to get “messed over”?

When is there going to be true relief? Why do the greedy fuel companies still get away with robbery and not get charged? Why are we (consumers) still left out of the loop?

What’s fair is fair. This ain’t fair guys.
