Since the Conoco Phillips fire in SoCal and the Exxon fire in Houston Gas prices in SoCal have increased daily. It might make sense if Conoco Phillips Stations raised their prices or perhaps Exxon raised their prices but nope, they have all raised their prices in lockstep. Many refineries have cut back supplies in order to help stiff the consumer in unity. California raised their gasoline tax a week or so ago by 6 cents per gallon but a gallon of gas at my local Arco jumped 20 cents that day. Just saw a report on the news that we will see $4 per gallon very soon.
Bad enough that stupid ass California voters voted for a registration increase and a gas tax increase but when the oil companies collude and stack the deck it is a bitter pill to swallow. When Oil was $140 bucks per barrel gas was 4 bucks a gallon but the present cost for a barrel of Oil is only $63 which should put gas at about $2.25 per gallon.
Those of you who voted Democrat are welcome to buy my gasoline since you are the reasons for it. Fucking Morons ...

Many of those reading this are the second generations that have been raised in this country watching the oil companies do anything they damn well please to consumers without and fear of repercussions.
They don't know any other way.
The same situation has spread to almost all other consumer products.
Look at rim fire ammunition. Have you ever heard of a reason for the nearly ten fold price increase?
Let's face it, folks. We have been abused by corporate America for so long that we now just expect to be abused.

The biggest scam they ever pulled off was shortage in the 70s
Any pilot flying to the islands back them can tell about the tankers parked off the coast just over the horizon ... waiting for the prices to skyrocket.

Where did you get this bullshit? There was an embargo, not a bunch of ships huddled together to drive up the price.

$6.68 a gallon in that grand lefty utopia of British Columbia. LOL



Media is saying diesel will be increasing by $0.24 a gallon .... apparently there is a huge demand for diesel right now.

But wait, the USA is the number one oil supplier now, our prices should be lower. Which other economies are skyrocketing driving oil prices higher? Seems to me there has been a global slowdown aside from the USA. Oil is only $63 per barrel.
