Why is gas prices going up and up again, 17 cents up in last couple weeks. How do they think we can get to work and keep paying high prices for everything. Do they want us all to quit work and go on welfare and all the other freebees?

to pay for obamacare. i remember when obummer was running in 08 he had an interview with matt lauer(sp?) on the today show and he said quote "$6.00 a gallon of gas is not out of the question because we need to pay more for it like the eutopeans do, it needs to be taxed more to pay for healthcare." at one point you could find the video on youtube, but like most things that go against this administration, it was removed shortly after he won in 08.

Refineries weren't making enough money, so they've "slowed down" production to run the price up. Same with crude oil producers.

In the mean time China's gobbling up natural resources like there's no tomorrow. They now use more coal than the rest of the world combined, and wonder why you can't see your hand in front of your face because of the pollution.

Meanwhile Exxon-Mobile has record profits. Game is rigged, we're screwed, get used to it.

You all are idiots. You can't blame everything on Obama. Although you all may think America is the boss of everyone, there are other places that control the price of things that are imported to us.
Be careful who you follow

america's #1 export is petroleum, so if we can import it, refine it and resell it back to the middle east, why is it so expensive here?
In 2011, the number one export by the US was oil fuels - specifically the US exported more gasoline and diesel fuel than any other products.

So what you're saying is Obama owns the companies that sell petroleum to the middle east? This still has nothing to do with Obama. It has nothing to do with republicans. It has nothing to do with anything but greedy companies.

Its really easy to be part of that "greedy" company. Buy some stock and share in the profits. So I guess you are one of those people that aren't "greedy" right? Can you define greed? You give away everything you have that is in excess of basic needs right? Just basic shelter, food and clothing. Nothing more. I get a real kick out of people that claim companies are greedy. These "greedy" companies are your next door neighbors, parents, grand parents that have mutual funds, stocks, or pensions that hold these companies stocks in their portfolios.

Gas reserves are at a high right now, open it up and drop the price of gas 25 cents, go ahead and show us you can lead by example.

Not true if our government puts economic sanctions on the middle east they in turn try to hurt us.
It's a double edge sword. Be tough on the middle east they will push back.
So give us the pipeline, the coal, the crude off our coast anything that makes us less dependent.
Do you think the oil companies want us to find alternative energy sources?
Does any one know where those energy saving inventions disappeared to? Like the holme & carburetor that toured the country in a mustang getting 140a mpg. Hmmmmm the government does.

I'll Tell Yo Why. It's because of US. WE THE PEOPLE and nothing more. We keep lining up in our OVERSIZED, GAS SUCKING LAND BOATS to fill our tanks so we can ride around and be COOL and go to Walmart to buy all our goods from China.
It's our own damn faults this Country has become this way.
So just keep going to fill up your rides at $4 a Gallon and soon it will be $5, then $6, BECAUSE YOU DUMD-ASSES will keep on paying and it will keep on going up & up.
It's sad because The People have no idea this Country is already gone.
So remember, this is nobody's fault but our own.
