    After spending an extra 20 bucks to fill up on the way home, I told my wife we are going on a road trip when the S comes--superchargers here we come!

    I posted this on Jan 19, 2012, over in the fuel prices thread. Sometimes I just hate to have my predictions approach reality :scared:

    Those above photo examples are both non-name brand stations. With the "shortage" of gas, the refineries aren't selling as much to the independent stations. I wouldn't be surprised if a some of the shortage was fabricated in order to make the independents feel some pain and drive more business to the Shell/Chevron/Texaco/Arco/76/Mobil stations...
