The energy industry is testing to see how much consumers are willing to pay. Let's hope this results in a crash in gasoline prices. I just hope it doesn't cause another recession.

Rising quickly areond me.

Even though crude is still much cheaper than it was in 2008 (almost $150/bbl) the gas pump prices are almost where they were in 2008.

Something fishy is going on.

Talking heads distracting the American masses. You seldom see the main stream media report on gas prices around the world. Do a little digging and you will learn that a large portion of the developed world is paying 2x what the US pays for gas. The price of gas is not the problem. The price of oil is not the problem. Those are effects. Set your focus on the professional politicians and the federal reserve; then you will be looking at the largest driving force behind the real problems.

Actually, we have some good news in NE Ohio, at least suburban Cleveland. gas prices have gone DOWN since Friday. Only buy a few cents but the difference is noticable.

"Rising oil prices a GOOD THING because the stock market has also gone up"
Great for the 1%, not so much for the Average Joe. just because the stock market has gone up it does NOT mean more people have jobs, and if they do, it is going to be a zero sum gain since the extra income is going right into the gas tank.

Since wholesale gasoline prices are rising and people are buying less [bringing in fewer tax dollars] lets, roll back some of the gasoline taxes domestically and apply a higher tax on exports, that might make keeping the fuel here more attractive for oil companies.
