READER STEVE COOPER WRITES: “You wouldn’t know we had record gas prices as you rarely hear about it in the news. No doubt if a Republican were in office we be hearing about it 24X7. Where are all the congressional inquiries into price gouging?!? And George Stephanopoulos can actually say with a straight face that there is no bias in the media. What a Clown Show.” They’ve become so obvious, haven’t they?
UPDATE: Reader Pat Peterson writes: “I’ve seen a few stories about the high gas prices in NC but no mention of the even higher prices in Chicago. I took this photo on Labor Day at Clark & LaSalle in Chicago. When will the media take note of these high gas prices?” As soon as there’s a Republican in the White House.

I just wanted to pass along a short note about the Amoco station at Clark & La Salle. I lived on the north side of Chicago along the lake
front for 25 years and there are Two Gas Stations that generally have prices about .20 higher than the rest of the city and they are both
Amoco stations and one is at Clark & La Salle the other is at Marine Drive & Lawrence ave.
Prices are very high everywhere and Chicago is always one of the higher areas i thought a note was in order not to overstate the price
in Chicago. I am currently in Atlanta OTP east and we are 3.89 on average which is still way too high.
I paid over 4 bucks a gallon in Georgia a couple of weeks ago, but it was at an Interstate ripoff station. Still, high. And we’d be hearing a lot about it if there were a Republican in the White House at the moment.
