Gas Prices Going Up Again

Gas Prices on the RiseGRAND RAPIDS, Mich- Gas prices are going up again, this time to $4.15 per gallon for regular unleaded. Drivers were paying around $3.85 this past week in West Michigan.

According to GasBuddy.com this recent spike is attributed to an unexpected “glitch” at a refinery, which lead to lower production of gasoline.

That “glitch” caused that refinery to buy gas from another refinery, to make up for its contractual obligations. Which then leads to higher prices at the pump.

    I'm calling BS on that! As noticed lately, our government could care less about us! The media does nothing, this country is going down the shitter fast!!!

    Hey, its getting toward summer, so sure gas is going up. Were you really surprised? The greedy oil companies will have some excuse though, they always do. That long Iraq war, to the tune of 860 billion, sure brought those gas prices down didn't it. Our government has cared less for decades. The politicians are all millionaires, as are the corporate boys, and out of touch with the common man. The rich get richer, nothing new.
