kab: How's that 'drill baby drill' thing working out for you?
GoldDude: Gasoline price is rising again? Hmmm, I hadn't really noticed...[media.caranddriver.com image 850x519]
Dr Dreidel: StrikitRich: PapaChester: So, did I miss something or did nothing in the "article" (I prefer 'crappy blurb') talk about what refiners are are doing to keep prices up?They are exporting more and more refined gasoline creating an artificial shortage domestically.Isn't that what started the gas shortages in the 70s? Only instead of calling them "Big Oil" back then, we called them OPEC?
IgG4: I know oil is a commodity. And the price is set by global demand. But can someone explain to me how the price of shipping the oil figures into its cost? It seems logical that you would want to refine and consume the oil and its products as close to the source as possible to keep your costs down and that imported oil should always cost more than domestic oil because it costs money to move that oil around.
