Now there is concern that oil prices falling may cause instability of world economies. I must admit I am happy oil is falling even though we just had a gasoline increase of 26 cents a gallon. So none of it makes any sense anymore and I don't think anyone knows the answer.

Ah lookie...RBOB down another 3+ cents today. No doubt meaning the price at the pump tomorrow will jump 20 cents.

Supply and demand. Sometimes it's perceived rather than real.

001) Too many people getting gas causing traffic jam in nearby street
002) Inside sales going down causing an offset on the gas price
003) Reduced demand at refinery spreading the markup to a fewer number of gallons
004) Increasing crude price resulting in increasing gas price
005) Hurricane that causes crude production to decrease increasing crude price
006) Detours in transportation that make deliveries more expensive
007) Tax increases from decreased revenues
008) Gas station hiring but no applicants to interview
009) Inventory at station critically low
010) Decrease in production or refining capacity

There is only one reason gas prices increase: You pay whatever anyway.

All the listed excuses are only to scare you into being willing to pay more.

Gas prices are not "falling" here with the season, in fact they are springing upward.

If every one would keep their tank half full or less the refineries storage tanks would be over flowing and they would be forced to lower prices.
