This is just Obama using his Wall Street friends to ensure a second term in order to complete his communism dream.

We'll work up a Number 6 on 'em! That's where we go a-ridin' into town, a-whompin' and a-whumpin' every gas stations and oil refinery that moves within an inch of its life. Except the oil barrels, of course.

You spare the barrels?

I'll bet a year of TotalFark, that if B-Rock the Islamic Shock is re-elected, within 1 week, all the banks will be closed and soldiers will be marching in the streets. In fact, I have it on good authority that it will happen.

HotWingAgenda: HotWingAgenda: FTFA: Kloza and others said gasoline could move higher . . .

Yeah.

Oh, and may I add, I had $5/gallon gas like a week or two ago. California sucks in some ways.

Sucker.

Let's see...The election is on the 6th... Check your calender. What is going on for the 11th that is observed on the 12th?
So are you gonna send me my year of TF now, or do you want to wait until the 12th and make it offical?


You never stated what country this would be happening in. Maybe I was thinking of Iraq.

ThrobblefootSpectre: One interesting implication is that if sandy shut down auto travel in the northeast for, say, 5 days, then at the current rate of traffic fatalities per capita per day, Sandy actually saved lives as a net effect when all else is accounted for.


Lower gas prices? Net saving lives?

We need more hurricanes. Obviously they are the best thing to happen to the NE in a long time. A few more and we can have $2/gal gas and the lowest death rate in the free world (especially when you factor in Hurricane babies born in 9 months)

The politicians blaming Sandy on global warming have no idea what they are talking about.

SevenizGud: phrawgh: Supply and demand do not drive gas prices.

Yeah, if everyone banded together and refused to pay any more than $3.50 a gallon, they would still price it at $4, amirite?

You people who refuse supply and demand are tards. Supply and demand are pretty much the ONLY things that matter. There is contribution by political risk (Nigeria) and factors regarding the relative availability of various qualities of crude. But this tin-foil-hat nuttery about how basic economic principle falls into the void in gas prices is only believed by people who believe Karl Rove really rules the world.

Think about what you write. How could a fungible asset remain an arbitrage target? Please be less stupid.


Yeah well apparently oil isn't as fungible as everyone thinks if Romney is going to keep it all here in the US rather than allowing exports as his energy policy.

dickfreckle: Emposter: Gas prices have nothing to do with supply. Oil is controlled by a series of massive cartels that ensure that gas/oil prices are always exactly the maximum people are willing to pay, regardless of the cost of actually getting the oil.

I remember when fuel was just over a dollar p/g. It was under $2 as recently as 2008 when demand killed the price.

While I understand that Obama doesn't have a magic switch to change these prices, I'm also angry that my earnings are stagnated while the price of damn near everything is skyrocketing. Even a farking can of tuna that I bought for sammiches is suddenly 40% higher. In a good year I make 50,000. It's typically 40k. I'll survive, but it's starting to get uncomfortable when I look at my receipts.


That's why I buy Schooner Tuna. The tuna with a heart.

Well, demand does. Even monopoly pricing schemes can't escape demand.

The Onion is prophetic: Krymson Tyde: Proof positive that Fartb0ng0 controls the price of gas.

I thought prices went up because of 0bama0 but went down despite his best efforts to sell us to Iran.


You just don't get it; I can only assume your a democrap. The black messiah is lowering prices now just before the election but will raise gas to 6$ a gallon after he steals the presidency.
