This all sounds like we are trying to feel better about a turning economy. Seems to me that we are forgetting that the price of crude and gas was lower prior to the Hurricanes in the Gulf region few years ago. Then, fuel proces climbed because demand was greater than supply. The reason was, refineries were off line until storm repairs could be completed. A year later, the price of gas had not gone down to pre storm price and Exxon and Mobil reported record profits. Couple this with the declining dollar, new modern refineries coming on line slow and China's climbing demand are all working against us. So, for the charts to be more accurate; weather, world economy and efficiency in the refineries have to be considered. All this being said, I just paid $4.19 per gallon for diesel in Alabama!
