There is now a lot of pump pain. What is the reason? OK so it is high gas prices. People are tired of high gas. HDRKID predicted that gas going over $3 a gallon this year. Skeptics made fun of him and then his prediction came true just a few days ago. They now claim they always knew that gas was going up. However, back in 2009 when gas was $1.39 a gallon in February they were saying peak oil was a hoax and to expect low gas prices.
