Food for Less offers a Fuel Saver Rewards program. $.10 off per gallon of gas if you purchase $100 or more in groceries. Otherwise, the program discounts $.03 per gallon.

And, how much of that $100 food bill goes to pay for the fuel it took to get those products to market? All this table tells us is that collusion is rampant in this country. Speculation on Wall Street drives prices up and multiple oil-delivery companies collude together to fix prices so no matter where you live, you will pay a fixed price. And, the fact that the federal government sits idly by and lets it happen, says a lot about who is really in control of this country. Does anyone remember the last time gas prices reached these perches? Does anyone remember the last year of the Bush administration? Wake up people; fascism is right around the corner.
