Get in line

I'm thinkin' that root worms need to get in line as an excuse for rising gas prices. Leading the way. . . . . . . "because we can".

My pet theory on explaining the variations (daily) in gas price is as follows.
In a small room somewhere on the Gulf Coast there is a man and his "big six" wheel. He goes to work around 4 a.m. every morning. He SPINS the big six wheel with a hefty thrust and wala . . . . . . today's price throughout America. The wheel has 30 + sections and 4 - sections (such as +26 cents or +15 cents or -4 cents or -2 cents). This is the only feasible explanation for the variations in gas prices. IMHO

Back in 67 when Uncle Sam was paying me $17.50 a week and my 58 Chevy Yeoman wagon(my 1st RV) got 10 mpg. $0.35 per gal was killing me. $3.25 gal now, not so bad in retrospect. Art.

The price of gasoline has gone UP here in the past 24hrs. The price was down to $3.45. Now it is $3.51. The higher priced stations are now at $3.79. Up 10 a gallon. This after the price had been dropping from a high of $3.89.

Wow... so Alaska must be the only place more expensive than California. Is it bad that it makes me feel a little better to not be paying the absolute highest.

4.15-4.25 Unleaded on most stations on Oregon Coast if not slightly higher in some areas. Not a good deal. Always higher on coast vs inland stations on I-5 for instance.

1/3 of the cost is due to speculation by the bankers including Goldman Sachs whose own executive was quoted as attributing more than 30% of the cost of oil to these "investors". Best part is they use their customers' money to gamble and if they lose these same customers get to bail them out with their tax dollars. Talk about laughing all the way to the bank!

GB says $3.29 in Phx. Was $3.49 about a week ago. CNN says it could go down another 50 cents or more.

If it rains in the Gulf ... gas goes up, if the winds go above 35 mph in the Atlantic , gas goes up, Prices of fuel is, has been, and always will be " The Great American Ripoff" Congress will create a task force and talk about it and ......do nothing.

Congressional committees as well as the U.S. and numerous states' Attorneys General have investigated allegations of price fixing against the major oil companies time and time again. Many of these career politicians would love nothing more than to take down one or more of the oil companies as a political trophy to add to their resume. Any idea how many of these fishing expeditions have been successful??

Allegations are easy to make. Facts are tougher to deal with.
