"and this has anything to do with what Obama has done during his presidency? It's unregulated gas companies that have done this! I say put a cap on profits of gas companies.. anything over the limit goes to towards the federal deficet"
the oil companies are the most regulated in existence.
They make 8 to 10c a gallon on gas. The feds and states take in 50-70c per gallon in most states in taxes!....
And this was a promotion in MI....the station sold gas at that price for a few hours. Needless to say the line was a mile long.
