It just drives me insane watching the price of crude slide downward (ya, sadly I watch BNN) thinking "oh boy! of course the price at the pump will fall in lockstep" ) only to see NS jack up the price..because they know we will think "oh..well it went up ext door so of course it will go up here." I understand market fluctuations, b ut not when there is a growing surplus (BNN again) of oil reserves in the U.S. I don't even use that much gas, it just drives me nuts because it jacks up the price of everything that is moved, or produced by fossile fuels. When the price of crude drops 35 bucks a barrel, the price at the pump drops 11 or so cents, but the formula does not work in reverse. When the price per barrel goes up 3 or 4 dollars, they ratchet up the price at the pump way out of proportion. grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
