The price went from 2.28 gal last year to 3.30 now and soon to 4.00 seems like a nice round number donít it, I wonder how everyone knows this, perhaps a target they want to go too. If gas went up one third in price in one year then I guess it means the demand went up that much? NOT. The apologist for big oil have 100 excuses for high prices: Take your pick. 1) Hugo Chavez 2) Weather problems 3) Yearly refinery fire 4) Summer blends, 5) Sinking dollar 6) SUVĒS 7) They wont let us build more refineries, I bet Mexico would love some near the border, even with their national oil, it would brings 100ís of jobs and fees, 8) Iraq 9) Iran 10) Middle east turmoil 11) OPEC 12) We cant drill here there or anywhere 13) India 14) China By the way we move our jobs over to these countries so their standard of living goes up and we have to pay more for oil, how stupid are we? Check out known reserves and you will that there is more than enough oil, the problem is due to a corrupt congress, President, Vice President, and oil company CEOís that would sell their own kids into prostitution for money. Oil companies are ECONOMIC TERRORIST that are bringing down the entire economy here and over there. When congress does an inquiry into anything that means you folks we are looking at better send more money and now.
This is about as dumb a post as they get!

If you are so intelligent, why do you throw names out? Call ME an idiot.....? Um, Mr or Ms Texan, I am not attacking Republicans OR Democrats, pal, read closer: I said the man in the White House (who, uh, is an Oil Man, um, bud, um, you get me) and hmmmm., fuel is outrageous...... Oh, hell, you can't be serious!
So, Sir Texas, you have all the answers, tell us, besides blaming all the vehicle driving people, what's the real deal behind the fuel prices? How can the oil companies post record profits and not make money? How is the gas price so high and profits are high........
We are all idiots, remember, bub, so set us all straight.
and this one is a close second!

You are such an idiot. If this was going on with the dems in office you'd blame them as well. Gas prices are beyond the control of our government. It is our own fault. We do not allow full drilling to occur in the US. We have not allowed the oil companies to build new refineries. We have not forced our auto manufacturers to produce fuel efficient vehicles. You want to know who to blame? Look in the mirror and all around you, that is who to blame.
Chuck, you reminded me of another "Chuck..." So I called him. Broker advised to buy "$weet Crude" futures.

Thanks for the Tip....:)

I can do so much better. Here goes:

White people are using high gas prices to keep black people down.

Lets think this through. Oil is a global market. Our government can't regulate prices for a product that is produced and sold globally. Now you say that they can fix the price of gas sold domestically. They could, but you have to remember that the supply curve works both ways, supply can be a function of price. Therefore, if the government fixes the price much lower, the supply of gas would be much lower, and we would have a huge shortage.

Great post Dave. Not a thing we can do about the global price of crude. I suspect our men in the capitol know that too. However, they have to say something in the likes of trying to take some action....

Corporate America now controls every facet of the United (Divided) States of America. Movie companies that turn out mostly stupid formula trash are owned by a base company not even related to making movies but rather are finance or oil or trade companies. Oil companies own and control so many other markets that they now have a monopoly over our lives. If you blame our government then blame yourself for electing them. "The love of" money is the root of all evil and so it has begun. As long as we keep riding around needlessly and don't cut back and car pool and stop long distance vacations they will keep raising the price so they can buy more extended companies and gain more control over the world. Truckers will soon go on strike and maybe we will support and joion them to send a signal to the powers that be that we have hit our breaking point. If we don't stick together- oh well then I'll see you at the gas pumps digging for change.
