Cuz you know those big bad oil companies are passing this cost right down the line.
Well, it already costs $120 bucks to fill up my truck, vs. $60 3 years ago - so what the hell. I can live with another upteen cents a gallon.
Who's our leader these days?
we have no leader....
It will cause me to increase my trip charge to customers for the first time in 4 years.
Of course I will still give a discount for Republicans.
We pay surcharges from UPS/FedEx and all freight shipments for fuel costs.
As well as our local deliveries.
2 years ago we were paying around $800 a week for gas...now..$13-$1400 a week.
We have assumed these costs without raising prices.
However...any more we are going to have to pass it on.
New tax on gas?
Obama said he wants to raise taxes on the oil companies. Mr. H
He doesn't realize that we the consumers pay for it, not the oil companies.
That means those taxes are going to be paid by us.
At the pump
At all stores, and all businesses.
Any delivery through mail be it ups,fed-x or USPS
Maybe if you buy a quart of motor oil. But with respect to gasoline prices- with market forces being what they are it's not practical that such taxes are able to be passed along to consumers.
Re: Obama's comment on oil company taxes- this is nothing new. It's been in his budget proposal since it's inception.
A word about these proposed "taxes". Obama speaks of rolling back provisions of the tax code- many of which were enacted 60 years ago.
Keep in mind that over 90% of the oil and natural gas activity generated in this country is done by independents - not multinational majors. Independents do not control the entire marketing loop (from drill bit to gas pump).
This thread, as I presumed, is lame and dead.
