    per gallon in my town.. It occurred to me this morning the oil companies might be doing this on purpose to make obama look bad for his anti oil policies.. in that case it would be worth it don'tchyathink?

    Intentionally punishing innocent Americans to make a political point would not be acceptable.

    Beyond that I'm pretty sure the market dictates the price and not the oil companies themselves.

    Don't forget speculation...huge driver in the price at the pump. It's people betting on higher prices so they can get their dividend checks. Funny how their gambling becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The speculators say "wow...look what's happening in Iran, I bet that is going to make the price go up to $4+/gallon!" That creates fear in the marketplace and guess what?

    Kind of like how they dropped prices during the end of 2008 to make McCain look good?

    The economic crash brought gas prices down.

    Barry will get the blame just as he would get the kudos if gas were 19 cents a gallon.
