it's supply and demand, when you control the supply you can demand what you want

I'll get this one out of the way before our Tea Party friends can get it out there first ---- "It's Obama's fault".

Seriously, can we get the Keystone pipeline done already? I know the issue at the moment is that 2 refineries are "off line", but the Keystone pipeline will drive down the "cost per barrel", thus when these refinery issue arise, the consequence isn't gas prices well over $4/gallon.

Wholesale RBOB gas (basic unleaded) is selling for $2.80ish/gal. Normal markups that include taxes are about 50-60 cents/gal so we should be paying $3.30-3.40ish/gal. But remember, Obama promised that he would keep fuel costs high to force Americans to embrace alternative fuel vehicles. Wasn't that nice of him!

wow, just crazy and businesses that rely on summer traffic are going to suffer big time. Another decline in the economy is right around the corner.
