Israel going to war..... war in Syria, Iran continues to stall.
Mid-east coming to a boil.

Hmmmm...

So where are those greedy manipulators and their transparent excuses for raising gas prices? Did someone call the dogs off?

Government says all cars will get 50mpg in the future; that's great. I'm glad my old Monte Carlo will be cheaper to drive by then..........
..........I'll still be driving it.

:) LOL (:

If most people understood how buying and selling of wholesale fuel worked, they'd shut up about it.

They have already started raising oil prices on deal talks. Up close to $92 now. Wait until they hear the word deal. Then Bam. $100 per barrel again.

Be assured, if some kind of agreement is reached on the fiscal cliff, they will start bidding up prices with vengeance.

They are currently hiding and speculating on how they can further raise prices and make tons more money.

The speculators took a kicking in the market so are shutting up for a bit.

Or the answer could be that speculators can't just raise prices on a whim as the dim-witted contend.

They took long vacations to warmer climates to spend all the money they made recently. They are like spiders just waiting to get back into action to fleece us again. Don't think they won't.

They will probably raise the registration fees on older cars, when cars are averaging 50mpg. Don't get me wrong I use to own a 80 Monte Carlo, I like old cars.

Fear not they are already at work. Futures have already gone up a buck. Add the oil platform fire in the gulf and it is sure to go up. Who knows how much.

It's a double effect. Tension in the Mid East vs the Fiscal Cliff looming in the US. If half of the things happen to the US Economy that they are predicting then everyone here gets their wish and gas prices go down. Only problem will be that unemployment will reach 10% many will loose their job, growth will stop and many of us still won't be able to afford gas prices even when they are considerably cheaper.

It is surprising oil hasn't shot up since the Israel bombing.
