Yeah, the market is supposed to react to supply and demand. However, that does not seem to be anymore. Demand in this country is dropping as we become more energy conscious, but the prices keep rising. I find it hard to believe that one refinery shutting down before the start of the summer driving season should impact prices nation wide. I do believe a company such as Exon Mobile and their obscene profits has much more to do with pricing. We are like sheep being led by the shephard aka the news media as the mouth piece of an industry full of deception and political influence.

ok, let's back up here a 2008-2009, a report came out and showed the top money makers at the time....guess what, BIG OIL was 7th place. i am offended by your term of "obscene profits". that year, pharmaceuticals, beverage companies, bottled water companies, walmart, and snack food companies made more than BIG OIL! WOW, our profits are obscene? big oil was dwarfed by pharmaceutical companies' profits. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE I SEE IS THIS: YOU AND ME DON'T BUY ORANGE JUICE, SODA POP AND ASPIRIN BY THE BULK....ONLY FUEL WE BUY IN BULK. refineries don't shutdown unless of a catastrophic event or something major like that. retailers and speculators ride the profit wave as long as they can...i'm serious, just watch the pump price and the commodity price for a month. you should be outraged!

Down the street, it's 3.29. In Sarasota, near I-75 it was 3.54. Can someone say rip-off?

This thread has developed into a political discussion. The thread seems to have run its course, so it will be closed.
