Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Just taking into account the delivery, refining and distribution processes? About two to three weeks. If crude takes a large jump, the retailers will increase prices quickly, as they are looking at their anticipated replacement cost of what is in the tanks.

I suppose their other option would be to lose money on every gallon they sell. And that sometimes happens, as I understand it. As has been mentioned, the retailers only make a few cents per gallon in profit normally.

So, no, it isn't a cash grab.

Donger I have a question for you since you seem to be the answer man when it comes to gas prices. Currently, the price of unleaded in Springfield is $2.48, in Branson it's $2.49. Every other community around is drastically cheaper. Ozark is $2.36, Nixa $2.31, Republic and Aurora are $2.28. I would venture to say that the Conoco stations, for example, in Springfield are getting their gas from the same refinery, same distributor, heck probably even the same truck as the Conoco stations in Republic. It sure looks to me like someone is gouging an extra 20 per gallon from consumers. How do you explain it? And before you ask, no, this is not an anomaly. This is consistently how gas prices run in this area. I live south of Ozark and Nixa and drive to Springfield for work, so I see it everyday and always buy my gas in Ozark or Nixa.

Pretty much for the same reason that housing prices are different between cities. Are houses more expensive in Springfield compared to Nixa?

No. Generally, homes are cheaper in Springfield.

Unfortunately. People pay more to live outside of Springfield but with close driving distance to Springfield. So the landowners charge more for lots, driving up the cost of a home. But that doesn't explain why a tanker of gas is worth nearly 20 more per gallon at a gas station 5 miles away. It's the same product. There is no factor involved to add that extra cost. If a gas station makes 10 per gallon then is Nixa selling at a loss?? That doesn't make sense.
