Memorial Day and Gas Prices

Jun 10, 2013

Many workers had a three-day holiday over the Memorial Day weekend. It was good to have the time off. But gas averaged $4.24 a gallon in the Chicago area. That means it takes a lot of hours of work to pay for a short trip out of town over the holidays. We suffer from this so the giant oil companies can enjoy super profits.
