    It’s ranging from 4.199 in Fort Gay, WV, 4.099 in Louisa, KY(they’re right across from each other, like 3 minutes apart), 4.499 in Grey Eagle, WV, to 4.399 in East Kermit, WV(about 4-5 minutes from Grey Eagle) to 4.299 at South Williamson, KY, about 30 minutes south of East Kermit. I think there’s a bunch of price gouging going on in these areas, but cannot prove it.

    state tax -
    WV = .35
    KY = .24
    ......... 11 cents cheaper in KY

    That sounds like the only difference is the sales tax.

    Usually when two cities are across the river from each other, the prices are the same. That way ppl don’t go over to KY to buy their gas. I’ve heard from more than one person who’s own convenient stores that there’s not much profit in selling gas(I don’t know how true that is, just passing along what I’ve been told more than once through the years) but the money to be made is inside, such as pop, food, and other things.

    Estimation is about 35 cents profit per gallon - GROSS
    Estimation is about 13 cents profit per gallon - NET!

    https://www.theautochannel.com/news/2021/11/22/1074398-who-makes-money-selling-gas.html

    So if someone buys 10 gallons - his profit is $1.30
    but if someone gets 10 gallons - and does not pay -
    he looses $43.70 (@ $4.50 per gallon)

    Short-term solution: The Federal Reserve needs to drastically raise interest rates, like Paul Volcker did to break the back of inflation in the late 70s-early 80's. Yes, doing so will likely cause a stout recession - like in the first two years of Reagan's presidency - but it's the price to be paid for the Federal Reserve's "money printing" binge they have been on for over a decade and the Duopoly's rapidly ratcheting up the national debt to over $30 trillion.

    Long-term solution: Repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913; get rid of the fiat monetary system and replace it with a gold-standard monetary system; stop increasing the national debt. Bring back Grover Cleveland as president.

    Yes, I know we can't bring back Grover Cleveland as president, but then again, the other long-term solutions probably won't happen, either(at least not yet).

    In 1841, the Cleveland family moved to Fayetteville, New York, where Grover spent much of his childhood.[15] Neighbors later described him as "full of fun and inclined to play pranks,"[ and fond of outdoor sports.

    Fayetteville is a suburb of Syracuse, NY.
    Grovers father was pastor of the Fayetteville Presbyterian church.
    That church is now a united PCUSA/ABC church

    Biden shooting off his mouth again in Taiwan. He virtually admitted that it is all part of the agenda. The White House is busy today, as usual, amending what their prez just stated in no uncertain terms, he even threw in his ‘God willing’ to emphasize the woke righteousness of what he just said. James Woods gets it:

    Yes, both parties of the Duopoly have left the vision of the Founding Fathers of limiting the powers of the federal government to only those expressly given to it by the U.S. Constitution.
