Can someone please explain to me why, when the cost of a barrel of oil goes up a dollar or two, the price at the pump jumps $.20 in a matter of hours, but when the price of crude oil goes down a dollar or two, it takes weeks to see a significant change at the pump. Why is this not considered price gouging?! Where is our goverment during all of this? It infuriates me!!

Okay...rant over.

I so know what you mean. And the other thing that amazes me is how the price can vary from one town to the next.. its .7 more expensive here then it is 8 miles north of us.. ARG..
