We're on a streak here in the U.S., and not one that motorists like: yesterday marked the 32nd day in a row that the national average has risen, and it now stands 19 cents higher than a month ago.

This comes a midst higher oil prices as geopolitical tensions result in buyers flooding back into oil, with speculative long positions, or bets that oil prices will rise, at high levels.

Also at play is the often mentioned refinery maintenance season which leads to the eventual flow of summer spec gasoline. The EPA requires cleaner burning gasoline in warmer months to offset warmer temperatures, leading to an improvement in emissions. To see the many types of various summer gasoline, click here to see ExxonMobil's summer gasoline...

The Invasion and destabilization the middle east(and strange propaganda campaign on Venezuela) and the splitting up of Iraq's cheap gigantic oil fields to countries like China and Russia-and to international oil corporations drove the price of one barrel of oil up over $100.00 per barrel from 2003 to the summer of 2008,the market crash brought it down for several months-and just as soon as the market came back up,so did the high prices--with world oil prices high enough to frack and steam tar off of sand,and the 2005 energy policy act eliminating the clean water act of 1970-the oil companies here(many of them the same international oil corporations now in Iraq)went to work getting the most expensive oil to lift on the planet(frack,shale and steam tar)out of the ground----the challenge is to keep world oil prices high enough to frack and steam tar off of sand for oil that is way too expensive to get out of the ground,and to give us the bill for the whole thing---now all we hear about is exporting these expensive leftover resources to markets created by war and lies---Rand Paul got on the TV the other day and said we need to open up fracking in every corner of America including parks-and export frack gas and oil to Ukraine! Why so they can heat with wood like most people I know,and spend $15.00 extra for 5 gallons of low quality gas? If this whole thing was not so sad,it would be funny.
