Gov. Quinn allows the gas company to charge more. I had received a wage review a few years ago in November, cost of living increase, to only have Gov. Quinn add a 6.6 tax hike the new year. Lost my raise and then some.
You paid like $3 a gallon for gas at cars getting 20 miles a gallon. Now you pay $4 for cars getting 30 miles. There's always a reason for the food cost to go up, like it's too hot and now the wheat crop is going to jump. Or conflict overseas to raise gas prices.
There's a song by Van Halen. "They gotcha going in. They gotcha going out. Same amount. In and out."
