Oil companies do it again

Ah yes, the second weekend in a row of $.50/gal price
increases seals it; The oil companies are back to the old
habit of jacking up prices on a Friday, in Ontario anyway.
All those cottagers get to shell out an extra $10-$20 per tank
if they happen to be filling up on Friday, and many do.
Next weekend, fill up on Thursday night.
The newspapers will complain, the companies will switch it around for
a week or two, then back it will come. Good thing for big oil people
have short memories.

Re: Oil companies do it again

That's a way of life here in Midland, MI. Locals buy gas on Tuesday -
Thursday. I-10 runs thru town and everybody going up north for the weekend
takes a hosing!
