Oil companies in the US are exporting fuel why?simple because they make A killing on it they dont care about you or me,they never did they never will.Its A con job that drives up the cost of everything we use every day its worth it to develop oil here now because the world market has been completely manipulated-and we pay at least three times too much for fuel.

Refineries are going back on line so that should help bring down gas prices.

This news is getting old. The refineries will just cut back on production to keep the price of gas artificially inflated.

the EIA is a stupid, money-sucking gov't agency that needs to go away yesterday, not tomorrow..north carolina's avg price jumped 0.9¢ today-how's that for a falling price ??..

with a $ 2.80 wholesale price, retail SHOULD be about 3.30-3.35, not 3.85 as in NW Ohio. Greed lives.

Gas prices are not determined by supply and demand but rather by greed and speculation.
