Default ^&$^%&@ Oil prices.

Right now we are now paying more than 2 dollars a gallon of gas AVERAGE. California has the most expensive gas with almost $2.50 a gallon for regular and nobody has actualy given a solid reason why this is happening. Some say it's because of the fuel demand, some say it's because the price of producing the fuel has gotten more expensive, Can someone make up their mind please? There are several factors to consider but it's mainly based between the mayor oil producers and incompetent politicians.

OPEC wich is one of the mayor oil producers to the United States has taken an atitude of looking the other way lately. Then all of a sudden they say that they will increment the production of oil by 500,000 barrels and apparently this didn't suited well with some of the OPEC's chairmans and all of a sudden their refineries and pipelines are being attacked, this is shortly after agreeing of producing more oil and now tey are producing LESS oil wich make oil prices spike up more than two dollars a barrel and 6 cents the gallons of fuel. This also makes the people of OPEC quite a load of cash and saudi arabia even richer. I mean where all these saudi arabia terrorists came from? They didn't came out of nowhere you know something is brewing there and it ain't beer.

Then we have Bush spiking out his fortune in oil stocks and the whole cngres siding with the oil industry swallowing any stupid excuse they give them. Neither Bush or Kerry have proposed anything to help this nation other than Bush looking for drill everywhere he can think of and Kerry saying that we should open the oil reserves. Those are not good things thats feeding up the greedy industry even more! We have also a bunch of pandering politicians on the congress blamming each other for every crap it comes out instead of focusing their efoorts in how to solve this problem.... They don't really give a damn anyways. We pay them their vehicles and their gas so they don't feel the pain we are feeling they just look the other way and act stupid. They'll drive their Excursions Suburbans and Cadilacs and not a single cent comes from their pockets.

I think it's sad that nobody has done anything other than looking the other way spewcially bush since he is the current administration. And if the oil prices go down by fall this will further prove that the book "Plan of Attackk" was telling the truth all the way.

Discuss.

The Govt won't do shit because they can tax the hell out of gas.

They all have connections too... but taxes are the main reason IMO.

Bush isn't going to a thing. If Bush were to actually do something he wouldn't benefit from the unjust price-gouging and he would upset his billionaire buddies from their benefitting from price-gouging.The oil companies here are pocketing this extra money by spiking the gas prises up when they don't need to be this high.

I have no idea why Kerry isn't making this an issue. He can really hurt Bush with the gas prices. CLITON brought the gas prices down by saying just one word to the oil companies: AUDIT. So, Kerry could do the same thing.

The reserves. We should not open them. There are a few reasons why not to open the reserves. 1.) Let OPEC run themselves dry and then that leaves us and Russia the only ones with oil. 2.) Keep the reserves full in case of an emergency. You never know what those Arabs are going to do. 3.) We simply don't need to. The oil companies are price-gouging. As long as someone who has the balls to threaten the oil companies, the gas prices woon't get this high.

Review: Bush won't do anything. The oil companies are price-gouging. It isn't all OPEC's fault. Kerry, why aren't you making this an issue? Threaten the oil companies with audits and those prices here in the U.S. will drop by twenty or thirty cents at least.

Everything is Bush's fault isn't it. The economy, which NO ONE has much control over, is falling (this is no longer true; it is actually rising) and started falling during the "CLITON" administration. It's Bush's fault. Gas prices rise due to higher in demand in other countries, such as China, so OPEC charges more around the world not, just here, and the oil comnpanies cover that and prices and, despite the rise, still go for even more profit than thaey already make. O.J. Simpson is found not guilty.It's Bush's fault. Bush killed his wife. It's Bush's fault. I'll bet the stock market crash of 1929 was Bush's fault.

Typical republican rant. They want to blame everyone ecept themselves. Instead of finger pointing they should concentrate into helping this nation and not destroying. I mean this to republicans and democrats. The fingerpointing must stop and it's time to start doing SOMETHING.

^Well said...even thoguh I'm not in the US myself, which in this case is good since we don't pay those ridculously unacceptable amounts for gas.

Mind you though here in toronto, its not that far off....prices here are just shy under a dollar (cheap to you in the states but consider the exhange rate).

One things for sure, alot of people here are getting rid of their SUVs for lesser gas guzzling cars. Some are even considering hybrid cars now...I've seen a few of em around, More than ususal. Guess this is a sign of the chaning times, espically with the way these prices are going...

That fact is that Bush has done nothing except: he suggested that OPEC not cut back production. That is all he did. Which is another fact. Bush is thinking about passing some sort of energy related bill. But like all his other things he's brought up and got passed, it will only benefit the rich and not solve the problem.

CLITON got the gas prices to fall when they spiked up in his admin. Why can't Bush do the same? And don't give me OPEC this and that, because it is the same shit they did back then.

Umm, and you haven't pointed fingers at Bush for nearly everything?

OPEC is increasing their production, but I don't blame Bush for the problems. I blame the oil companies, both in the USA and abroad. I don't see why the government should even be involved. Why do they have the right to tax our gas?

Sounds... colonial...

Im here to offer a little perspective.
We had a report in our paper yesterday that converted the price of petrol (gas) to aussie dollars from major countries'

here goes.
USA:- 70 cents per litre
Australia:- 95 cents a litre
Japan:- $1.40 per litre
France:- $2.08 a litre
Britain:- $2.60 per litre

and for the killer
Iraq:- 4 cents per litre


DAMN.........what would normally cost me $40 to fill my tank here would be a paltry $1.68 to fill my tank in iraq
