Hmmmmmmm......there is a temporary shortage of crude due to low consumption in the middle sectors and the refineries are waiting for a long term shift in the weather.


Yeah.......that's it.

Actually, it's from October 2012. I should have paid attention.
On the news, it was $5.22 and diesel crossed $6. So I have to correct myself.

Yes, of course. Also, there have been a long run push to match European gas prices. I think, that is more valid reason than - what was it - low consumption in the middle sectors and the refineries are waiting for a long term shift in the weather.

Hasn't everybody heard? High gas prices are now good.

This is from April last year, but is still topical; best part is from about the 3:00 mark to the end:

Of course. High gas prices "move economy". ANd everyone "needs to spend more" to do same.
Anyone ever read the Protocols? When all this was clearly outlined for centuries?

This just happened to show up today as well. Thought it was a little amusing, but then not.

Nice sign Larry. Got lucky yesterday and had to drive to a neighboring town for a tow. Average price right now is $3.65-3.69, but one station (a Mobil) over there was @ $3.55. AND I was low. Woo-Hoo! Saved about 4 bucks on the fillup.

Neat sign, wonder what political party the station owner aligns with
Gas prices aren't as bad here. Went out yesterday and most were between $3.32 - 3.39.... but I filled my jeep up this past monday at $3.18 per gallon.

I love when people try to fault Obama for the rise of fuel prices by saying they were so low the day he took office. They never seem to mention that 6 months earlier they were at all time highs.

But after a spike in those 6 months the prices came down drastically. They have done nothing but rise in the ensuing 4 years. So without casting blame on our emperor/king, I let the cards fall where they must.

Yes. Because the economy tanked. Prior to that point in time, when did you last see those prices? Better yet, what were the prices when Bush took office? I'm straining my memory on this one, but perhaps around $1.30? And which direction do those prices head during his reign? To all time highs?

You think the state of the economy falls on the shoulders of one person?

drooplug obviously the state of the economy doesn't fall on just one person. Obama though hasn't helped to makes things better either. It isn't just gas prices either but health care costs and the list just goes on all the way to China!

A hell of a lot better than when a certain Einstein left office.
