Fuel Prices are fueled primarily by demand, as long as the supply remains close to demand levels, prices will stay high. If you are the proud, but not so smart owner of a Hummer, Escalade o some similar egomachine, then you are part of the problem...if you (like me) drive more than you need to..then we both are part of the problem. If we drove smaller vehicles and drove less, the oil industry would have to change it's strategy. We can change the price...if we want.

In reality there are a mulitude of reasons that fuel prices are were they are. The prime reason is gas is a bi-product of making plastic. Our prices are much lower than Europe. That is the reason for our low prices. The short term reason for our high prices is in Africa. The Delta is cut off by MEND (and probily should be) which has cut off the Delta Gold. Very cheap to process. All the rest is hype for greed.
