    Gas in Houston area $2.89 per gal. Kansas $2.78 per gal with your Dillions card. Utah near SLC $2.99.. Costa Rica $5.68 a gal depends on how you calculate it in dollars… I know you can make the argument CR has no oil therefore increases. However something seems amiss here.who is pocketing all the money?? China?/ the Diputados?? “” Consultants”" code for stealing here. Hummm
