Duh! Look at the price per barrel! The Arabs certainly aren'y co-operating with Obama's(D) election drive!

Even Obama(D) isn't co-operating with Obama(D)! Why the ban on oil drilling, until recently? Tic, tic, tic...

Change your voting pattern folks, before it becomes too late!

gas price is a game. When people use more gas, gas will go up. When people use less gas, gas will go up. Us citizens can never win this gas game. It is all political and money making for the big shots that own oil rigs.

The oil industry could find huge deposits of oil on every main street in every city in the US and gas prices would still rise. It's a scam.

George W. Bush (R) did the same thing. He and Chaney were in the oil industry before they took the oath for the top offices. The Bush family has been friends with the Bin Laden from Saudia Arabia family since the 80s. It doesn't matter who is in the Oval Office. The pres. will have to play the same games that have been played since we (the US) started relying on foreign oil, no matter who is running the show. Fet off of your partisan bike and face the facts. In order to become president of this country they all have to compromise with the devil. Besides, Bush(R) had eight (8) yrs to sleep with the Arabs. Obama(D) has been in bed with them for less than two(2) yrs. Before you start throwing stones at any administration, make sure you know the facts.

Here's the Facts, America makes the world go around. No America no world. If we go down the world will slip back into darkness. Oil is involved with everything that touches our lives. If you don't like Reality change it. But until then ...DRILL BABY DRILL!!! DRILL HERE!!! and DRILL NOW!!!

You people havent got a clue on gas prices and the oil market. The price of gas is set by the commodities market. People are using the price of a barrel of oil to hedge their stock market holdings. When oil futures go up, the price of gas will follow. If we want to control gas prices we have to put a limit on the price of oil.

We cannot CONTROL or put LIMITS on the price of gasoline. The cost of gasoline is much more complicated then what you lay out. The only thing we can do as a country is USE OUR own resources instead of other peoples resources.
Think of it like this. Two property owners have water on their property. Instead of using your OWN water you decide to pay your neighbor for his water. The penalty is "You will PAY more for your neighbors water if you choose not to use your own water"!!!

DRILL BABY DRILL!!!

You are clueless Fire. The number of barrels of oil pumped per day is set by OPEC. The price of oil and gasoline on the American market is set by the commodities market. This price is what the refineries pay for oil. They have a set profit margin they wish to get per gallon of gas produced. Easy math higher oil prices = higher gas prices. Do you really believe that if we used our own oil the price would be different? Not a chance. Until we cap the price of oil speculation, we will pay higher prices for gasoline. Think back the last couple years when gas prices went from under $2 to almost $4 dollars, the price of a barrel of oil went from the high $40's to almost $90 a barrel.

Sorry to say but you are the one who is clueless on this matter. It is much more complicated then what you lay out. Do some reading and then maybe you will be able to grasp it.

DRILL BABY DRILL !!! Use our resources instead of being at the mercy of Sheiks who hate America!!! DRILL NOW!!!!

Libs love those high gas prices. They give them an excuse to try to take over the oil industry also.
