    Now I have a REAL beef with Illinois today.  They have closed down 2 refineries for repairs and they are stealing Minnesota's oil which we get from Canada and causing our local gas prices to set record highs.  Sheesh, cost me nearly 6 bucks to get a can of gas for the lawn mower.

    Fix your GD refineries Illinois!

      but bet you are getting our gas from the Woodriver refineries, which are about 35 miles from where I live. Where Phase I of the Keystone pipeline is already built and in use.

      Now I have lived in Southern Louisiana and spent time in Texas and the refineries there are massive, but what is in Woodriver would still hurt your head.

      You can "smell" the town from miles and miles away.
