Manipulation by the refiners..

Capitalism at its best. Crude oil dropping like crazy, gotta ramp prices with some phony excuse from the local refiners.

Any excuse will do. 

If they clean the floors at a refinery, production slows, the price goes up. Fuckin' joke.

Of course the government is doing a splendid job of ruining the value of the dollar.

Less than a week ago, I was working in Las Vegas and I paid $3.67 a gallon while I was out there. 

And now, back here in California, it's $4.59 a gallon at the ARCO station near my home.

Amazing.

Control the supply and then you can control the prices.

Here in Ca as I'm sure you know, they (stations) have to pay huge taxes to city, county, state, Joe, bill, Mary................fuckin joke.  They also bloat the price on current expensive inventory before the next delivery. Whole thing is just miserable, talk about thieves all the way from the top down. It's organized crime imo.

Here in San Jose, CA, it's $4.40, so I guess it could be a lot worse.

They are blaming it on the Richmond refinery fire, shortages at other refineries, California's special blend of gas, and someone sneezed.

you guys are lucky...


according to my calculations;


1 gallon = 3.785 litters

1 litter in my country ( and almost all Europe ) = 1.9$

so, 1 gallon here is almost 7.2$


you are paying 60% lower gas prices than me.


And you have a GDP that is almost 10 times the GDP of my country. Talking about a shitty life...

It's only in California.  I was just driving all over Arizona and Las Vegas the last few days.  Prices weren't changing.  My local station today is the lowest it has been in weeks.

  Cali.

euro countries don't produce any of their own oil, unlike america.

if anyone wants to win the election, he just has to say "there are 20 years of oil reserves in this country, and if elected i will place 2 year's worth into the oil supply of this country and break opec".

Or maybe American cars aren't as economical as, say, cars from my country, Sweden, or Germany, Japan.
Today you can buy/make big economical cars but they are more expensive so maybe the American auto industry doesn't want to make them.

Here gas prices are also the double but most of our cars also go the double on the gallon.

So the average car gets 50+?? First that's BS and second you're driving a tin can of crap that gets crushed when anything hits you.

Anyone driving a car that gets great gas mileage like that is in turn giving up other advantages. And aren't you guys on the metric system?

RJ, I am curious what car you are driving that gets double the gallon(Or Liter to Gallon)

We do have cars here in the U.S. that get great gas mileage

Back when Hurricane Katrina hit, that was when gas shot up and I remember reading that a gallon of gas at that time(Liter to gallon) in the U.K. was over $7.

It's all relative.  If everybody is driving a tin can, the effect is only a bumper car crash.  Over here in the States, you are crazy to be driving a tin can because most vehicles will absolutely crush your economy gas miser.

Coal and oil work.

Wind and solar don't (yet).

Tap our own resources right here in this country and gas prices drop by 50% before the first drill hits the ground.
