Gas companies CAN gouge because we show no sign of using less. It's not gouging, it's how economics work. If the demand for a product in relatively inelastic, it makes sense for suppliers to raise the price up to whatever point will make them the most money. If they raise the price too far, people ...

Probably a good excuse raising the price, but as I remember most of the crude oil coming from Alaska goes elsewhere. So I doubt it will make a real difference.

No, I doubt that's legal (might be the cash price? or a discount for using their credit card, but it should be posted) but it depends on state law
