Gasoline prices in our area are ridiculously high.

The wholesale price for Regular today is $1.39. This traditionally translates to a pump price of $2.20, a little more in Burlington, a little less in Montpelier. Today, Rutland is $2.50, Burlington is $2.77 to $2.89, Montpelier is $2.79 to $2.84, Waitsfield is $2.89.

How is it that in a free economy, prices across the board are highly inflated? Who is controlling the price?
