Anyone beside me notice how the prices is going back up? Fast. Could this have something to do with it?


13 percent of US refining capacity. Doesn't sound like much but could have a big impact.


So, what's the reason for the strike? “Unfair labor practices.” Sounds like the usual BS to me,. I'll post this under Conspiracy Theories for 2 reasons – the unions support Obama who wants major increases in energy prices – and low fuel prices seem to be hurting Democrat Party supporters.
