There is no correlation between crude price and gas price. Gas price is what ever they thing they can get you to pay, and the news media's job is to soften you up so youwill think it is a bargin.

Maybe Bush will get them to drop prices right before the election so we all feel better.

Gas in CA hit an all time high as an average across the state. Didnt we just take over a country full of oil? What up?

LOL. Oh really? Do teach. Been in the oil biz a long time and I assure you that Crude Prices directly effect gasoline prices.

It's all a scam....In the winter time they keep the prices up and say it's because of shutting down a refinery and in the summer time it's because of demand and OPEC cuts output to keep the prices up...We need some regulation.....My .02

With the record profits recorded each quarter by everyone and anyone associated with the oil and gas industry, all of this should make you quite happy.... wealthier too!
