Crude oil prices have fallen by almost a third since this time last year due to the reduced demand from the pandemic.
But gasoline at the pump in Tidewater is up by about $.45 per gallon, another wonderful gift from the “Green Lunatics” in the Northam administration and the Democrat majority in the General Assembly.
Part is from the higher statewide taxes(many hidden) and the rest is from the regional tax we pay here to pay for things we don’t get because all the state money goes to Northern Virginia
But not to worry, were it not for the pandemic dropping oil prices, we would be paying even more.
And they go up even more next year. Of course, if you live in an urban area and have no commute and never venture into the outdoors, I guess that’s no big deal.
