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!
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.
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.......
Does that mean that the prices are raised in an inflationary manner because of capacity constraints? Same thing's happening here, the prices are about to get even worse. I have no idea why. But then I think I'm punch drunk from just watching the prices keep going up for no apparent reason.
When I look around at all the cars and trucks, aircraft it isn't hard to understan the need for demand. But when viewing the different grades of petrol needed and having to haggle over environmental issues, and knowing full well that we have made great strides in reducing waste and pollution how can these tree huggers have the power that they do? I know they drive cars and trucks, used chainsaws. Have electricity and whatnot and I've very much for conservation of our lands plants and animals but something has to give! And how can you really expect Chinar and India to follow strict codes on pollution and conservation while making a mint producing shit for us in the West?
