    Gas Prices

    So what's the excuse now?

    An oil tanker spilled 3 gallons of oil causing a shortage?
    Everybody suddenly became afraid that war may break out in the middle east?
    Demand has unexpectedly increased ten fold in the last 2 weeks?
    A refinery had a 5 minute power outage cutting off supply?

    Re: Gas Prices

    They want to make more money?

    Amazingly, this is one of the things that I really don't care about that much. If I really don't like the price of gas, I should drive less, get a car that doesn't use so much, live closer to where I work and or take public transportation. I know it's not so easy for everyone, but gas prices are one of the things I've just decided to not let get to me. It's summer, they always charge more in the summer and gas prices will continue to rise, it's just like death and taxes.

    Re: Gas Prices

    I don't so much care about the actual price, I can afford it. What irritates me is the lame excuses. It ticks me off to watch the news and hear some weak excuse when we all know it's just oil companies being greedy. Set the price at what it's worth and don't screw with it.

    ^^^^This is exactly how I feel...

    You know why gas prices are high? Because people will pay for it.

    If people don't want to pay that much for gas then don't buy it. Gas prices will drop when people change their habits and buy less gas.

    Yeah... the thing is, that is not true. I don't think gas prices have gone up .45/ gallon in the last week because people are suddenly using significantly more. I believe we are using less gas now than we have in a long time. I sometimes think the less we buy, the more they charge because they have to make up for lost profits. The supply-demand argument is b.s.

    ^^^^ This is very true in my mind as well. It really pisses me off hearing stupid excuses, they just know its people traveling more, people using gas on their mowers, boats and cars etc so they can make a killing and nothing we can do other than pay it or change how we live a little. I have a honda accord and no boat so i dont care a whole lot but its still at times a touchy subject.

    Re: Gas Prices

    what I hate about gas prices is they seem to predict with 100% accuracy the day I will need to get gas and prices spike 2-3 days beforehand, then drop 2-3 days after.

    It ramps up leading up to Memorial Day every single year. Nobody should be surprised.
