Remember the times when gas was around a dollar a gallon, under a Democratic president. no less. With the Republican oil president it's over 3 dollars a gallon. Does anybody else care to know what was discussed in those secret energy task force meetings between Cheney and the oil companies. I know I sure do, but I feel like I am unlike most Americans in actually giving a crap about what our leaders are up to. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism people.

According to the story:

The closure of a refinery in Coffeyville, Kan., due to flooding and the shutdown of a huge piece of oil processing equipment at a BP PLC refinery in Whiting, Ind., have pushed gas prices in the center of the country higher in recent days, in turn forcing the national average up, analysts say.

Problem is when the refineries are back to full capacity, the oil companies will wait an extra two weeks before bringing down the price. To all those who are unaware, this is price gouging. Contact your Congress person and Senator and complain, there is a lot at stake next year for both Congress and the Senate. With enough voices they will be forced to listen to the will of the people, and not corporate interests and donors. Take back our government.

RM is right I was just in Phoenix its below $2.80 and thats the equivelant of Colorado midgrade (87)

Colorado has so many standards causing so many additives that the gas costs more but I must say the only nice thing about AZ was the gas prices, it was 119 on the 4th of July in Phoenix I will never go to that hell hole again unless its February

Did you attend the fireworks display in Downtown Tempe? It started a half hour late and 30 people ended up in the hospital. Come back in October - February, never a temp below 35! It's nice!

Where do you get this crap? Al Gore, Michael Moore, John Kerry?

Unlike most Americans you fall for anything and everything you hear. Try educating yourself on basic economics before you attempt to persuade others.

Also, your partisan views are really old and tired try thinking for yourself for a change.

What the government doesn't want you to know, is that Mexico has 10,000 years of oil.
When Bush Sr. was in Office the Mexican Governmet approached and offered to sell the oil at only 19.00$ a barrol. Being the Wonderful President he was, he refused stating that The U.S. still had a two year contract with Opec.
So then why didn't our government come up with a contract stating that at the end of the two years we would buy our oil from Mexico.
I'll tell you why our government is just like everyone out there, all they care about is the all mighty dollar. And making the rich f**ks richer and to he?? with the working class.

If (god forbid) a Democrat wins the Presidency, and the gas prices stay above $2.50, what are the people like David going to say then.

I remember gas was .98 a gallon in 2001 or 2002 at the gas station at 10th and Sheridan. So, I do not think it is all this Administration. Some, not all!

I can read signs, I guess your fourth grade education is failing you, that tell of the gas prices. I know that we are supposedly fighting a war in the middle east for oil, of which we have gotten very little out of because we can't secure the country. I know that Bush himself has owned a few oil companies in his day, although to his credit they were good at only drilling dry wells. I know Dick Cheney had secret meetings with the CEO's of all the major energy companies, and in true neo-can style will not disclose what was discussed at those meetings. I know that Bush will do nothing to prevent oil companies from making, not sector breaking profits, not yearly breaking profits, but rather industry record breaking profits while fleecing the middle class. Chevron just posted the two most profitable quarters of any company in history, but there was no price gouging under Bush. It's right under your nose to smell there buddy, or should I say it.

I know facts like these mean nothing to you in lala berthoud land. BTW, why not post a real name. To scared to actually let someone know your name? Or is it because you have nothing to say but insults, again your post doesn't attempt to prove me wrong or cite facts disputing what I said. Just Coulter like insults that mean nothing, in the interest of a lost cause I will no longer respond to you when you say nothing of meaning. Just crawl back to that little rock in Berthoud you've been hiding under and shut the hell up.

I think the people in Coffeyville are wondering if they are Rich from all this oil! Why ? Because the Refinery here says they lost 78.589 Gallons of crude oil into the this town and its even in our drinking water. Oil that is texas tea. Well I'm not moving away from here Jed.

Thanks for being civil, unlike the it from berthoud. I agree that the administration isn't totally behind the sharp rise in gas prices, but I don't for a second believe that anybody in this administration is trying to prevent price gouging. They don't give a crap about the middle class or how much they have to pay for gas. Most middle class workers wages have been stagnant with rising health care costs, energy costs, inflation, and food costs they are actually making less now than seven years ago. I am also tired of the administration being so secretive, what is it they have to hide about the secret energy task force meetings. Why can't the public know what was discussed at those meetings? Why do they keep insisting the public has no right to know? Do they not understand that they work for the people? What is it they are hiding? It seems to be more than a coincidence that we are paying all time highs at the pump, and Cheney's secret task force doesn't have anything to do with it. If they don't have anything to hide, than why not just tell us what those meetings were about. I also find it interesting that Bush himself has owned several oil companies himself, yet under his administration were paying twice for gas than we did 6 years ago.

This is the shake down of shake downs, he's fleecing our treasury and middle class so a few companies can post unbelievable record breaking profits. From the Carlyle group, to Haliburton, to Chevron, it's the same old story. Just imagine if we had made the decision to allow the Iraqi's to rebuild their own country instead of the private companies like Haliburton, and the Carlyle group. I guarantee we wouldn't be paying $3/gallon for gas, and we wouldn't be stuck in a quagmire with no end in sight.

As long as the US Dollar remains weak, I believe you will see an increase in oil prices. We have to realize that the OPEC countries need to keep their economies in tact. Selling their oil which is pegged in US Dollars is not in their best interest. There has been talk that they want to set the Barrel Price Benchmark in EUROs which is selling at a premium to the US Dollar. Substituting the EURO for US Dollars is no different than changing out a DOW stock in the INDEX. The dollar is not a welcome currency at this present time. If you were a OPEC country would you rather have EUROs or US Dollars.

TO OFFSET THIS WEAK DOLLAR THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO INCREASE THE PRICE OF OIL TO MAKE UP FOR THE WEAKNESS IN THE US DOLLAR
