Gas at $3 Per Gallon & Rising

Merry Christmas. Your gas has gone from $2.50 to $3.00 a gallon in 6 months.

According to the Financial Times [Crude Oil Could Bubble to over $100/Barrel], “The market is undergoing a ‘demand shock’ as consumption growth this year accelerates to the second-highest level in 30 years.  That surge lifted benchmark oil prices to a 26-month high of more than $90 a barrel on Tuesday.” [Full  Article: http://bit.ly/hf9HwW]

HEADLINE TODAY: Oil futures settle at lowest in nearly three weeks

And gas prices are up 20-30 cents per gallon during that same period in Florida to almost $3.00 a gallon.  The petroleum industry is such a racket.  When I did a search of local gas stations last night, virtually ALL the stations (over 2 dozen) priced regular gas at $2.89.9 per gallon.  A few were higher.

Coincidence?  Tell me this isn’t the result of price fixing.

The economy and market are showing some weak signs of recovery, and the petroleum companies are putting the “squeeze” on consumers to push their profits higher at the expense of the overall economy.

Nice going guys.  You need to stop treating the American public like an ATM machine.
