Marquette is bouncing between $4.15 and $4.25. Like how they said it averaged $4.03.

you should recheck your news sources.

Quote:
“The Midwest refineries are plagued with problems,” said Phil Flynn, chief energy analyst with the Price Future Group in Chicago. “While the rest of the country is swimming in supply, the Midwest is seeing 22-year lows of supply. We can’t seem to get a break.”
Michigan was especially hard hit this weekend because it depends on aging Midwest refineries that have had problems this year. However, unlike other Midwest states, which also had higher prices, Michigan doesn’t have as many other refinery and pipeline options, one analyst said.
In addition, speculation among Midwest refiners likely is causing them to panic and buy gasoline at a premium to meet contract orders from wholesalers. Other oil producers see a competitor’s vulnerability and ratchet up prices, which the buying refinery passes on to wholesalers, who, in turn, raise their prices to retailers, who then boost what they charge consumers.
Flynn pointed to five regional refineries that supply Michigan with gas:
■ On Friday, the ExxonMobil refinery in Joliet, Ill., shut down, possibly through next week. The refinery was closed in April for maintenance.
■ Last week, the Phillips 66 Wood River plant in Roxana, Ill., reported a process leak. Its operations status was unclear. The plant also had an unplanned shutdown in late February.
■ In late May, a compressor at Citgo Petroleum’s Lemont, Ill., refinery was shut down, adding to the regional supply shortage.
■ In late April, there was an explosion and fire at the Marathon Petroleum refinery in southwest Detroit.
■ And for many months, production at BP’s refinery in Whiting, Ind., has been cut to about a third of capacity as the plant converts to process heavy Canadian tar sands crude. When completed, the plant is expected to refine more oil, but the conversion is taking longer than anticipated, Flynn said.

What we really need is a car that runs on bullshit. Neverending supply of that.

I fucked you all. I'm sorry.

I got rid of the diesel and bought a gasser. This was destined to happen. When I bought my first diesel it was cheaper than gas. The next week or so gas and diesel prices swapped and never looked back.

The sad but down to the bone truth is they can raise prices whenever they want , because nothing ever gets done to stop it. Oil companies supply the tree huggers with funds to stop new exploration as it profits the oil companies in the long run by raising prices because there is a shortage.

Call it that if you want but anyone who doesn't believe that all these groups are driven by more profits and will do anything even conspiring with groups that are supposed to be their enemy is the one who might just have something too tight on their head constricting blood flow. You've got a brain use it.

And as shitty as it feels at times nothing should be done about it.

It's supply, demand, capitalism, blah blah blah...
