Demonopolize the gas bussiness. There must be a monopoly when all the prices change at once.

Second, it is my understanding the refineries own major interest in the retail outlets.. more price fixing.

Third, common story is gas needs to be north of $3 per gallon to make domestic oil use profitable.

The biggest problem is there is a lack of refinery's and the lack of drilling for our own oil.

Look at Sadiua Arabia and the country's that supply the most oil, they sell there gas in country for penny's

Obumble nuts has spent American tax dollars to provide drilling permits to Brazil and Mexico , to drill in the Gulf which they in turn sell the oil to us. Now how does that make sense?

The media talks about speculating about oil and buying to sell to make more money. Why does that affect the cost of gasoline?

How can gas go up because of a potental conflict between Iran and Israel/US?

The left seems to enjoy the words "energy independence". But who is that for? Not Americans

Yep, Bush was in bed with big oil

If you don't like the high price gas then buy a volt. Hmmm, I wonder if a volt will pull my trailer's?

How exactly is that going to lower prices? Less tax loop holes = more operating cost = lower profit margin = unhappy oil company. It seems to me screwing them out of tax loop holes will just shift that onto the consumer and in turn give Washington more operating capital.

Am I missing something there?

That depends on how you look at it.

Are those loopholes only benefiting the oil/gas industry? It's a tough call, because of how large of a profit is turned in the oil industry - if those profits are a result of these loopholes, get rid of them.

It is hard to say something like this without sounding all "THAY MAKES MOAR MONEYS SO THAY SHULD PAI HIER TACKSES!!!1!11", however, this is the same kind of bullshit that allows billionaires to take advantage of and pay a smaller percentage that most of us.

This is one area where using a flat tax and eliminating all loopholes (and 90% of the IRS) would make perfect sense.
