Something to consider, if you'd like to put the fuel pricing thing in perspective:
Aprox two years ago no-lead was selling for $1.00 to $1.25/gallon. I'm sure that everyone in the oil business from drillers, to refiners, to distributors were making a reasonable profit at that time (or they would have gone out of business).
Now, (two years later) no-lead is TRIPLE this amount!
There is no logical reason, or any reason, for this kind of massive increase in the span of TWO YEARS, other than PURE GREED.
Even doubling the price in two years would be questionable.
YOU are being car-jacked, robbed, screwed, and scamed every time YOU go to the gas pumps!!
Our elected officials aren't addressing the issue,...so maybe it's time we cleaned house in Washington!!

It's just strange to me how all of a sudden prices have skyrocketed. I to believe that those writting the reports can make them say anything they want them too. I know I could, and did. It's just a shame the effect these oil prices will have over time on our economy.

Two years ago crude was selling for under $40/bbl. It is now $123. Granted those are futures market numbers but no buyer in his right mind would produce for less than the going market?

And BTW, 4 years ago gas was selling for $2.11/gal. Two years ago it was ~$2.90.

Google research shows the cost of gas/oil and a conspiracy under EVERY BUSH. Pun intended.

China's demand has gone up 5000% in the past few years. India a similar amount.

O'Reilly tonight was exhibiting similar misunderstanding/ignorance.

Congress has investigated 'big oil' 11 times in the last 7 years. They haven't uncovered 1 shread of evidence of wrongdoing and please don't pull the ridiculous ploy of 'fake numbers', 'back acratching', etc. Since ENRON, a big company couldn't hide a flea in a dog pound!

Can any rational person believe that if Bush could somehow drop the price of gas, he wouldn't do it? His finaces are monitored even more closely than ENRON.

I feel sorry for kool-aide drinkers.

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

Kool Aide Drinkers OK Rush !

Myself, I have always felt sorry for the Blind Faith types. I think the Kool Aide is being pumped outa the ground and sold for $123 a barrel. It's gonna kill us all
