Oil firms fleecing America

NBC runs a segment on its nightly news broadcast called "The Fleecing of America." The segment talks about government wasting taxpayer dollars.

We have a "Fleecing of Modesto" taking place with our gas prices. Gas is 15 to 20 cents cheaper in nearby cities such as Tracy and Stockton. One would expect prices to be higher in those areas because of commuters. It makes sense that gas prices should be cheaper here in Modesto.

Could there be price fixing going on? You decide.
