How can we avoid these prices spikes in the future? First, we could produce more of our own oil — a point recently made by several Southern governors to incoming Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. We also need more refineries in order to provide more flexibility for maintenance scheduling and output capacity. For both purposes, we need the EPA to back off its regulatory adventurism, and state and local governments to do the same.

Unfortunately, the former looks like a pipe dream — almost literally — in a second Obama term, even with Jewell’s experience in the oil industry. Get used to rapidly rising fuel costs, and the associated inflation they bring. Only another round of recession and economic stagnation will prevent it.

That is the dream, produce more oil for cheaper prices. The only thing that will do is allow Big Oil to export more oil, ensuring higher profits for the oil companies, not lower pump prices.

" They're going to kep raising prices until driving a car will become so expensive, people will stop driving cars. Then what? "

Then we'll be driving EVs or natural gas-powered vehicles.

Its pretty simple. Close the EPA and DOE. Start building major new refineries across America.

If we were a net exporter of oil the price would still be controlled by the Global Market and price would be priced accordenly unless subsided by the government.
