    I was just called by the CEO of Exxon begging me to gas up or he wouldn't be able to pay for his vacation.

    yeah I didn't gas up and the gas prices raised 5 cents anyways!
    And get this the American people aren't going to stay home next weekend no matter the gas prices.... So they all need to STFU over the prices if they can't make a stand against this crap. I mean actually it wouldn't matter because the gas companies are going to do as they please because it is about supply and demand. if we don't use it then india or chinar will!
    right?

    What crap?

    The oil companies are not raising the price for bigger profits

    The oil companies make only ten cents per gallon profit

    If you consider a profit margin on ten cents a gallon a killing

    look at how many filling stations there are along the I-95 corridor for example and then multiply that by the rest of the country.

    The stations make a few cents per gallon profit at best

    Reports show the high gas prices are NOT making people use less

    Record demand, record sales = record profits

    agreed and the demand is in those "now" advancing countries that use oil for plastics, materials, and fuel for all types of needs in that area so it is a vast concern when using the words supply and demand

    That has been my argument for a long time and I point to California not only about more refineries but power plants, different topic but same complaint!
    More refineries means less stress to supply the demand! Would seem to me that would be the easiest answer, but the catch is all the political horseshit that is involved in the process.......:cuckoo:
