Gas in our area had just hit three dollars per gallon after a relative lull from last summer and fall. But I seem to remember watching the local news a few years ago and every night they would feature, "The Pump Patrol". Where someone would be the designated reporter to go out and find the cheapest price at the pump. This was all before Jan. 8, 2009. If I recall correctly.
I've yet to see that on my nightly news around the Richmond, VA area.
Maybe if it the price get's higher, the news will act.
Anyone else notice this?
