On the front end (producers/ speculators) high oil prices are good, on the back end (consumers) they suck. I'm just thankful it isn't heating season.

Correct.

AAA spokeswoman Beth Mosher said gas prices in the region are still being driven up to problems at refineries, which churn oil into gasoline. Adding to shutdowns and maintenance issues is the transition to a more expensive summer blend of gasoline. Refineries are required to use a cleaner blend that produces fewer emissions in the peak summer driving season.[Thank you, EPA!]

The Chicago market uses a blend of gasoline that is only produced at a small number of refineries, so volatility is often high.

Thanks. Same thing happened last year when the refinery up near Fremont went down, gas spikes. I do believe we get that summer blend here as well. At least the gas station I use regularly posts something about a summer blend they sell.

Good, can't wait for it to jump to $5 a gallon this summer so poor folks will stop clogging up the roads!

Ugh. Fill up for me yesterday was $51, not quite 13 gallons. I don't have an SUV, so can only imagine what others pay for fill ups when this happens.

I have a Hummer, boo boo! Always amazed to see people who can't afford a gas guzzler and complain about gas price, reminds me of the housing sub prime mortgage loan crisis when poor folks buying houses....

"Tyner said scheduled maintenance work at BPís Whiting refinery and at Exxon Mobilís refinery in Joliet, Ill., was already taking longer than expected ó reducing regional gas supplies ó when a Marathon oil refinery in Detroit was hit by a late April fire and other refineries had some glitches."

Plenty of oil in the ground yet we can't get it to the pump. Too many environmentalist and bureaucrats preventing progress.

Our dependence on foreign oil and the middle east to supply it has kept this country as a addict for 50 years.

And neither party has or is doing a damn thing to solve this.
yea right
