Angry Its Nice to have advanced warning when you're about to be skrewd!

GEE, I wonder if those 4 refineries that are down , all at the same time for so called maintenance could have anything to do with this? NAH
Gasoline refiners and distributors wouldn't do anything like that to short gas supplies and make inventories fall and gas prices rise sharply just when people are getting ready to drive and recreate more in summer would they? NAH!
The're understanding and nicer than that right!

Can you spell monopolistic artificial control of a necessary consumer staple! If you can you can probably answer the above questions! Read 'Em and Weep Boys & Girls!

Pretty sure lots of local news stations report this every year about this time, slow time for news I guess. I don't know what they are basing this on as I work in the industry and have no clue what prices are going to do in the next week let alone six months. I'm not saying they are wrong or right but I'm not going to go out and pick up a blow boat because of this earth shattering report.

Surely no one took me seriously . I would never part with my cat . High fuel prices , high header prices , no worries i will adjust . Please don't deny me the right to raise hell about it .

Why is it EVERY year around this time that some CRISIS occurs to raise oil?
Iran
Iraq
Refineries down
Pipeline shut down
Maintanence
Etc
Etc

This NEVER happened until around 2003/04. Before that, oil/gas stayed relatively stable.

I think we are being f**ked

BTW if the price of gas goes o $4.00 again the lousy economy will get worse. You would THINK our elected ass holes in Washington would attempt - something?!??

well i cant give out all my industry secrets BUT i can tell you that even though some of our refineries are "shut down do to maintaince" thats not what is causing the gas spike... also most of our "gas" or "fuel" that is made here in the states is shipped over seas. we are able to produce it extremely quick and makes it a good export. it dont make since but think of it like this..

gas here where i am at is 3.29 a gallon while diesel is 3.67 a gallon. that in its self is about 20 cents more than super.

gas got down to 2.87 a gallon is the cheapest i had seen it here where i am at last year.

the thing is with gas prices up it makes more money for the industry and they are NOT going to lose it so they wont drop it much. we will never see 2.00 gas again.
