    Lower Oil Prices Slow in Reaching Pump

    Headline says it all. Why is it that when oil prices surge, the prices at my local station correspond immediately. not so when the opposite happens.

    Bruce Springsteen covered this topic quite nicely in the first verse of his 1980 song "Held Up Without A Gun"

    I was out driving just ataking it slow
    Looked at my tank it was reading low
    Pulled in a Exxon stationout on Highway One
    Held up without a gun, held up without a gun

    Some damn fool with a guitar
    walkin' down the street
    ain't got nowhere to go
    Ain't got nothing to eat
    Man with a cigar says, "Sign here son"
    Held up without a gun, held up without a gun

    Now it's a sin and it oughta be a crime
    You know it happens buddy all the time
    Try to make a living, try to have a little fun
    Held up without a gun, held up without a gun
