I was told earlier that my opinion of the manipulation of gas pricing on the Shore was all wet like Houston. Funny that you haven't seen Exxon\Mobil Corp. publicly donate ANY money to their constituency\customers in the name of humanity. I think if you dig into it you'll find they 'Qualify' for Federal Disaster funding to abate ANY losses to their plants and interests. Not only do you and I pay profit on their product, we pay to maintain their infrastructure. Wow, what a deal.
Nextly, our gas prices are in the range of $2.75 per gal. because gas was purportedly 'short'. Funny, gasoline was diverted to Florida on order of the Government. NO talk of shortage for them, Colonial Pipeline back on line, Florida Attorney General seeking charges against price gouging and our fuel is 'STILL' $2.75. I filled up in Virginia on Saturday for $2.32 (Norfolk), no shortage there on branded fuel. Since MOST of the fuel coming to the south Florida area comes from Georgia and S. Carolina why couldn't some of it be put on the pipeline that was not damaged and pushed North??? Simple, that wouldn't stand the test backing their little 'fake news shortage'. Where's CNN and CBS when you need them?? Why was ONLY one leg of the pipeline shown on TV? Colonial pipeline has many legs in ALL directions yet they didn't say when it was shut down only the Texas feeders and pump stations were affected??
My detractor says I'm wrong but these 'facts' are constant,and with my perception that the Eastern Shore is writhe with crooks in the fuel business it seems to be on target with them and their wiles. Why hasn't OUR Attny. Gen. asked the WHY question???
Its because Maryland has ALLWAYS been the LOOK AWAY MODEL for the U.S. when it comes to corruption and thievery. There's NO help here for folks trying to lead a normal lo-key life and a vote for the status quo insures it will live on in impunity. Thank You Democrats.
