Gasoline could reach $5 by July 4

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW -- -

At the rate gasoline prices are going, don't be surprised to see $4 a gallon — or higher — prices at the pump by the end of May.

Motorists have seen the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline rise above $3.50 a gallon on just three occasions, but it has never happened this early in the year.

"Gasoline could be about $4 by Memorial Day," he said. "There could be places in the United States where gasoline will exceed $5 by the beginning of the summer, around the Fourth of July."

"PUMP the MARKET UP" ( Intentionally Raise Prices ) then "DUMP the MARKET" ( TAKE Manipulated PROFITS )

Here is a GasBuddy CHART that CONFIRMS that the NATURAL PRICE of a GALLON of GASOLINE is only $1.50... see the DIP where SPECULATORS FLEE the OIL FUTURES MARKET.

This has been said almost every year since 2008. People have cut back on consumption and have been rewarded with consistently high prices.

It has been 4.42$ for weeks here on Maui... now jumped 5 cents at some stations. Been over 4$ for a long time - last March. O'ahu still is cheaper (they have the refinery). Can't wait for Costco to open their station here. That will change all the gas prices.

--- JGPhotoZ WOW!!!!!!.....I'm only 46 yrs old...but I can remember...seeing gas prices for .75 cents a gallon.

You are NOT WRONG. SPECULATORS "PUMP the MARKET", then "DUMP the MARKET" PROFITEERING on the BACKS of WORKING AMERICANS.

The NATURAL PRICE of GASOLINE when the SPECULATORS DUMP the MARKET is still only $1.50 a gallon.

---

Here is a GasBuddy CHART that CONFIRMS that the NATURAL PRICE of a GALLON of GASOLINE is only $1.50... see the DIP where SPECULATORS FLEE the OIL FUTURES MARKET.

The DIP and UPWARD TRENDS on the GasBuddy CHART IN BOTH CASES where the UPWARD TRENDS occur are where SPECULATORS PILE BACK IN. When the SPECULATORS BUBBLE BURSTS again, there will be another PLUNGE soon and the CYCLE will REPEAT.

BECAUSE the SPECULATORS NEVER TAKE DELIVERY of their OIL on PAPAER FUTURES CONTRACTS, the PRICE will rise until the MARKET is unable to BEAR it and GASOLINE will return to it's NATURAL VALUE of $1.50 a gallon.

This sort of speculation will lead to speculation in the oil market, leading to higher prices.

A self-fulfilling prophesy.

WALL STREET FINANCIAL MARKETS profiteering in the OIL FUTURES MARKETS...

There are WAY MORE DOLLARS in the FINANCIAL MARKETS that SATURATE the OIL ON PAPER OIL FUTURES MARKET... There is NO SHORTAGE of OIL or GASOLINE... but there is an OVER ABUNDANCE of PROFITEERING on the BACKS of WORKING AMERICANS... and GREED.

Buying OIL FUTURES, but NEVER taking DELIVERY of the physical OIL, just the RAISE the PRICE on PAPER, is GREED and it is EVIL at its CORE because it SPECULATOR INVESTOR GREE PREYs on those with 8-22 miles per gallon CARs & Trucks who can LEAST AFFORD it.

For those who can MOVE to 40+ Miles Per Gallon Vehicles, NOW is the TIME.

The ONLY way to TRAIN a SPECULATOR is to BUY LESS GAS with a HIGH MILEAGE CARE and let the OIL FUTURES MARKET collapse and FALL OUT from UNDER THE SPECULATORS...
