Default Gas prices?

What's up with the gas prices (no pun here)?
I am seeing $1.65 for regular here, up from $1.43 about 2 weeks ago!
Is this what snowbirds bring with them or is this an oil company profit move?

I'm sure it's got to due with the cold snap. Increased production of home heating oil and less gas , so the have to charge more for the gas.
Gas here went from 1.28 to 1.44(regular) , diesel 1.41 to 1.58

Listening to a program the other day stating that everything that usually precedes high fuel prices is here now. They were predicting major increases in the near future. Funny how $1.50 seems like a bargain in urban areas now.

Feds are siphoning off crude to replenish the strategic oil reserve + we've proved to the oil co's that we will pay anything in the last round of big prices. Our gas is still a bargain in the worldwide sense though some prophets are hinting at $3.00 a gallon this summer! It would not suprise me to be paying that on the water for 89 in July. Look at what's going on in gasoline futures before you call me crazy. Be prepared my friends...soon, like you've never seen before...the world is changing...
