The main reason is the oil speculators on Wall Street get greedy and need a profit fix.

Get oil and gas off of the commodities market on Wall Street and sell it on the open market.

All those folks driving around with their windows down creating massive amounts of excess drag causing fuel prices to go up. You know who you are.

I think that the Iraq war is the other most effective reason for increased gas price.
