Blame the politicians for high gas prices

Success - Article sent! close

I don't know about you but I'm really getting tired of being robbed here in the Chicago area, I'm talking about gas prices. Up in the vacationland of the northwoods of Wisconsin, $3.67. Down near Janesville, $3.65, moving west to Minneapolis, $3.59. The minute you enter Illinois, anywhere from $3.99 to $4.19.

Springfield, Ill., $3.79. Springfield, Mo., $3.29. Just a big ripoff, like so many other things in Illinois.

The Chicago area gets its gas from one refinery, in Whiting, Ind. They're the only refinery that makes the formula that was devised years ago by your wonderful politicians. So if there's a glitch? Prices jump because there's nowhere else to get gas from. What a great idea!
