OK, the gas prices in MN are over $4 per gallon now. Just what would cause such a spike in pricing?

3 refineries in the Chicago area are closed down "until further notice" courtesy of Obama's EPA.

Apparently the EPA implemented new regulations this year with caused all 3 of the refineries to shut down for re-work and maintenance. Until the work is completed, and the proper governmental authorities give their blessing, the supply of gasoline into Minnesota will be sharply curtailed.

According to the AAA, this could last through the 4th of July.

Nice going Prez. You sure are taking care of the little guy, aren't you?

My bad. The earlier report I read said 3 refineries. Here they say it is two. Big f-ing deal.

MINNEAPOLIS, May 15 (UPI)-- The price of gasoline shot into record territory above $4 a gallon in the Twin Cities and elsewhere in Minnesota Wednesday, a price monitoring website showed.

The website, www.twincitiesgasprices.com , showed gas was selling for $4.25 at a Golden Valley filling station and the price had hit $4.19 at numerous other stations, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. That was a 30-cent jump in 24 hours.

Motorists still could find a relative bargain, however, at a Get N Go station in the Lexington-Circle Pines area, which was selling gas for $3.73 a gallon, the newspaper said.

Gail Weinholzer of AAA Minnesota blamed the surge mostly on reduced regional production capacity after two large refineries in the Chicago area went offline.

The two refineries, which supply much of the gas supply for the Upper Midwest, may not resume production before Memorial Day and prices could stay high until the Fourth of July, she said.

"Restarting a refinery is not like flipping an electrical switch," she said. "It takes time to ramp up, and other issues, glitches can occur.

"It's going to be a mighty expensive summer. There is no relief in sight."

Thanks BHO. No way they could have staggered those upgrades and maintenance for a while? Idiots again.
And while Barak does not control the price of gas directly, this sure indicates he has found a way to do it indirectly. And as always, this will have the worst effect on the people who can least afford it. And yet, they keep voting for these people.

Dayton should temporarily repeal the Mn. gas tax since he's all for the little people too. Right?

As usual, the low information, no integrity spell check princess has spouted a completely irrelevant wad of nonsense. Last time I checked, the Midwest and Minnesota are not located in either Canada or Europe.

Keep a sharp eye out for those R.I.F. trucks in the neighborhood.

Just like Obama did with ammo. Have DHS execute MASSIVE unneeded orders for ammo and prices skyrocket.

Now at the most demanding period for motorists he closes refineries causing gas to skyrocket.
