Gas Prices 2021 in Are You Really Ready? Posted May 18 Gas prices here are up to $2.89. I heard there is a gas station in Richmond that is price gouging at $7.00 a gal. for regular unleaded. Also read that that is why they suddenly decided about not having to wear mask so as to cover up the price gouging. I don't think they can cover that up. People can see it going on. But it has not been on the news that I have heard of yet. Or I missed it.
