The cheap stuff

Hey, we're used to flying out of Indy to get the lower air fares, so let's all hop in our cars and drive there to get the cheap stuff!

Gas prices are slipping nationally and statewide, but drivers at Indianapolis filling stations are getting it cheaper than most places.

Overnight, AAA said the cost of the cheapest gallon of fuel fell to $3.26, down 5 cents from Tuesday. The average is $3.44 nationally and $3.41 in Indiana, but Indy pumps are charging less than Bloomington, Gary, Fort Wayne, Evansville, Terre Haute and South Bend.

Oh, wait, hold on just a sec . . .

I found $3.17 in Dayton last Friday. Anyway, the demonizing of the awful, corrupt, greedy oil companies continues. When will people realize that those oil companies also provide a lot of high paying jobs (not just the execs) and a lot of pension funds own stock in those companies. Retirees are expecting those companies to perform well. Besides, the federal government makes more profit on a gallon of gas than the oil companies do. Who are the greedy persons now?
