We expect seasonal increases and accept it. They know this and get away with it. They also get away with the slow decrease in prices and we accept that, since that is the norm, and they know they can get away with it. They also know, if there is even a threat to oil delivery, they can get away with raising prices. The oil could be still in the ground or already sitting in tanker off shore.

Here in California the price went up about about 50-60 cents a gallon depending where you went. They blamed this on a shortage of winter blend gas. Over the last couple of days diesel has began to rise also. No reason why. It is all BS. We the consumer are at the mercy of the oil companies who again are making record profits. In fact, the price of oil per barrel has dropped. Please explain this one to me.

The shortage is local to you, caused by your own state legislature.

It is not the doing of the oil industry or other evil plot.
Elsewhere there is no shortage, the the price per gallon is falling or holding steady based on the price of oil. Some increase overall in Oct is to be expected for Diesel as the demand for home heating oil in the northeast spikes this time of year as they fill thier oil tanks for winter heating.

"Expected"? And we accept that and they know we will. How long has it been getting colder around this time of year? People buy heating oil before it gets cold. Why can't the oil companies produce more oil before it gets cold? This ought to be good.

I still don't buy in to it. Overseas, diesel has traditionally always been cheaper than gas as it take less refining just like jet fuel at least thats what I was always told when living abroad. Thats way a turbine engine is still cost effective taking in to account the amount of fuel they use and the cost a jet A. I believe in a company making a profit but, record profits at the expence of the consumer, NO. Not when people are hurting and the cost of living is increasing and the standard of living is decreasing.

My opinion only.

Record profits and closing refineries only helps the oil companies. Double the tax on their profits and use the money to build the pipe line from Canada, then tell me why it isn't being built.

I do agree that as far as the high gas prices go it appears to be more of an issue with California. I did not think that diesel prices were affected by the demand of home heating oil as I always thought that they were to different types of fuel. I guess that I should be grateful diesel is still cheaper than avgas $6.25 a gallon at our local airport.

Regular Unleaded, +- $1.19 per liter (X4 for you US folks) = $4.80 +- / Gal
Diesel, +- $1.13 per liter or $4.50 +- / Gal
3.785 liters in a USA gallon.

gas 119/ liter = $ 450.41 per gallon
diesel 113 / liter = $ 427.70 per gallon

no charge for these corrections

Please see my post on 10/14 about historical pricing from US EIA.

Most people I know in north east PA have larger oil tanks and fill up during the summer. Then only get enough to carry them through. Neighbor actually has 1000 gallons at the house.

The proposed pipeline wasn't a government project using tax dollars. It was to be built by a for-profit corporation. Doing what you suggest may make sense but there would be no chance of letting government intrude into that business. The next step would be suggesting nationalization of the oil companies and you know that would never happen.

Ask someone from Alberta how they feel about the export of the raw product from the tar sand fields to the US for refinement into products to be sold here. Their fuel prices are considerably higher than ours and a refinery in Canada conceivably could help them.

If everybody did that, they'd raise the prices during the summer, too.

It's like Roswell, Jimmy Hoffa, UFOs and other government cover-ups. We may never know the real reason gas prices are getting higher.
