Unfortunately the retailer simply hands that bill over to the gas company and places another order. The US is no longer the only major economic force on this planet and others need fuel as well to turn the wheels and make money. Less supply, higher prices. Is the price artificiality inflated by speculators on wall street trying to make a buck at the expense of the public? Perhaps, but this is this the system we have. The US system with all its flaws is still the best in the world. Do we have to like the price at the pump? Hell no but what choice do we have,, these are just plain old market forces at work my friend. Could all that I just posted be BS? You bet as I don't have a crystal ball into the inner workings of big oil or world markets. This is just the opinion of one guy.
