I hate to bring this thread back to life, but now that the price of gas is back in the $3.00 a gallon range and going up, I will ask again WHY?
The public is belived to reduce by 2% the amount of travel they we be doing over the 4th of July and we are producing the same amount of oil from the ground as last year.
Remember it is not the big oil companies that are setting the price for a barrell of oil, so don't blame them.

There are dozens, no, hundreds of factors controlling the cost of gas. I wouldn't have a clue which ones are the current movers/shakers.


Wretched excess is just barely enough.

Our government is printing dollars as fast as the presses will run. This ultimately devalues the dollar, and crude oil is a dollar-denominated commodity, so it will take more of the cheaper dollars to buy a barrel of crude oil.

Because of this, investors (yes, speculators) are running to NYMEX as a safe haven for their investments and bidding up the price of crude oil and gasoline, despite the fact that this runup is unsupported by market fundamentals as inventories continue to rise.

Like most bubbles, this one will ultimately burst, but the underlying inflationary pressures will persist as our deficits increase.

On Edit: By the way, if carbon cap-and-trade becomes law, you ain't seen nothin' yet when it comes to gasoline, diesel, electricity, etc. prices!!!
