$3.35 up $0.20 since Tuesday here in Des Moines, IA. Up 17% since last month. Highway robbery. There is plenty of oil, youtube Lindsey Williams. The oil oligolpoly is artificially suppressing supply. Thankfully, work is only a 6 mile bike ride.

In the San Gabriel Valley, 10 miles east of Los Angeles, the cheapest was $3.70/gal reg at the BP/ARCO stations. So plan your trips accordingly.

$3.41 here in MT today.

I'll not get into the whole supply-demand issue, as I don't claim to have much knowledge of such things in regards to the oil industry at the present. But when I hear the two magic words "record profits" being applied to the big oil companies, it makes me see red. What exactly does an oil company executive do that's worth millions upon millions of dollars in bonuses? Guys who turn little-known companies into big ones I can deal with. What the hell does an oil exec have to do to get us to go to the pump and buy their product? NOTHING! (Except get it out of the ground, refine it, and distribute it.... which of course the execs don't do anyways...)


ETA: Just talked to my brother on the phone. He's worked for Conoco for 20 years. He's pretty disgusted and disillusioned with the whole oil/gas price deal as well. He says that Conoco doesn't even get their oil from the OPEC countries, but they feel they have to keep their prices in-line with the other companies. And I'd be willing to bet that the oil lobby in Washington has all kinds of apparatus' in place to legally prevent an oil company from dumping its prices. Cause God forbid we peons be able to go next door to a station that's selling gas for half-price! And the fact that big oil gets billion dollar subsidies when they're making billion dollar profits is just more evidence of our government being corrupt beyond belief. Looks like my bicycle is going to be getting more use from now on...

That's what I've heard in WI and NY news.

I remember when they said it would hit $4 this time last year too. Might happen this year though. It's hard to tell what is hype these days.

I'm all for profit but I think oil has gone above just profit. Let it be known I'm by no means an expert on this. Things such as oil shouldn't be "record profits" bringing in millions of millions dollars. It's an every day staple. Almost required in this day and age. The prices of oil affect every person in more than one way. These oil CEO's have their hands in Washington holding the average joe hostage. Can't afford gas = can't go to work. can't go to work = can't make an income. you do the math. Would I mind government regulating oil companies? call me crazy but no not really. The rich get richer, poor getting poorer. Is that to say I'm for communism or the obamageddon? nope. just think things like oil and gerocies shouldn't be made for "profits" BTW I think those who produce such things should make a competitive salary but gouging joe smoe... no thanks.

BTW I'm coming off a long shift so forgive the spelling and any nonsense.

Gas is high because oil WORLDWIDE is traded in dollars. The dollar isn't worth shit. Thus, oil prices are high and so is gas. Simple.

Raise interest rates, the dollar rises, and gas falls.

No polititian will raise interest rates during an election year and risk pissing off stupid Americans who don't know anything about finances. All the talk about now is "stimulating the economy". After the election, I think that all they will be talking about will be "high inflation". We have high inflation now but they won't talk about that till after the election.

i know chevas just stated a 60% tax increase on oil exports for the major oil companys at $70 a barrel. and it will rise to 70% when oil hits $110. this will be the same when hillary gets in office to control big oil. so the price could shoot to $5 after jan. according to the radio depends on who wins.

I have a lemonade stand that I've been running each summer for five years. Here is my average balance sheet each year:


Lemons: 500 @ $0.25 = $125
Cups: 500 @ $0.10 = $50
Sugar: 15lb @ $2.75 = $42
Costs: $217 for 500 cups of lemonade


So, I price my lemonade @ $0.50 per cup and I make $250 per summer gross and a $33 net profit (~15% profit margin)

Unfortunately, last spring, an extended frost caused worldwide lemon prices to triple. This is my balance sheet for last summer:


Lemons: 500 @ $0.75 = $375
Cups: 500 @ $0.10 = $50
Sugar: 15lb @ $2.75 = $42
Costs: $467 for 500 cups of lemonade


In order to make the same profit margin, I raise my price to $1.08 per cup of lemonade. It was an unusally hot summer, so I managed to sell all 500 cups of lemonade for a total of $540 or a profit of $73 (~15% profit margin).

Because I more than doubled my profit in real dollars ($73 vs $33), Congress investigated me and imposed a "winfall profit tax" of $50 meaning that I actually lost money this year.

This summer, I decided to sell my lemonade stand to Tropacana and start a software company where 80% profits are common.




Hint: Oil companies make less than 15% profit margin per year.

Ok look at it this way. Per your post:

Since you work security, you don't produce anything. You consume. You currently make $15 per hour (for example...I don't have any idea what you really make nor do I need to know). Everything that you secure increases costs for me, the consumer, because you spend most of your time sitting around and securing something that rarely gets stolen. Therefore, I have arbitrarily decided that since you make $5 more than what I make ($10 per hour) that you are profiting at my expense and not benefiting me in any way. Therefore, I only want you to receive a "competitive salary" and lobby Congress to mandate that all security guards only make $10 per hour. Securing something shouldn't be done for "profit".

See, no one should have the power to decide what someone should make for something. That's what the free market is supposed to do. Leave the free market alone and you'll have amazing prosperity. Mess with it to make it more "fair" for everyone and you'll have a disaster on your hands....just like we are experiencing now.

Buy stock in energy companies and take advantage of their profits. Get a little for yourself.

I'm not trying to insult you but I really hate it when I hear people whining about how unfair the oil companies are. Oil companies are currently investing billions into developing new oil sources. That's right. The "windfall" profits are currently being invested into future energy sources. Mess with that and oil prices will stay at all time highs.

The government should never have done this "economic stimulus" package. Stupidest thing they could have done. It's going to cost this country big time. They need to raise interest rates and let the economy take the hit. Inflation is out of control inspite of what the Fed is saying.

Right now they are saying that we need to stimulate the economy. After the election, I bet all we'll hear is that we need to control inflation. But we won't hear about inflation till after the elections.....sad that Americans think only of their own little problems and not of the big picture. We need to take the economic hit now, for great rewards later. However, Americans are so stupid that they think that the government can "save" us.

All you are looking at is the small picture of how gas prices are affecting you at the moment. Stop thinking about yourself for a little bit and think about where the country is going. Sometimes, we need to sacrifice a little for improvement later.

America has gone from being patient to wanting everything NOW. Well, we are going to pay for that impatience and it's going to be somewhat painful for many.

The rich getting richer? That sounds like some DNC talking points. So, by that logic, healthcare should be socialized because its "required in this day and age"; moreover, doctors shouldn't make so much profit off people that require medicine. Maybe home builders should be regulated and restricted from making a profit because people are required to have houses....and the list goes on and on and on.... Maybe people should just share income and possessions, like in a commune.

Back in the 90s oil companies were struggling to stay alive (i.e. the mergers). There are peaks and valleys in every business. A lot of the increase in prices we are seeing is caused by A) India and China are becoming more modernized and thus using more oil B) the oil cartel known as OPEC decides how much oil to produce--which is only in THEIR best interest (key word cartel). Also, we are using more oil here in the U.S. as well, with only a certain capacity to refine.

I personally think they are only "testing" the market. They are trying to see how much they can raise prices without reducing quality sold. I am no expert either and there are hundreds of other variables involved, but this is my take on the situation.

BTW, we pay less per gallon today, in relation to income, than we did in the 50's and 60's.

I am in the oilfield rental business. My family run business in El Campo, TX has been in the oilfield for several generations now. We went from hauling the rigs around on trucks, to the rental business we have now. We rent the mobile offices (trailer houses) for the 24 hour rigs. We rent generators, light towers, porta potties, pipe racks, forklifts, etc.

I know many people who work for a whole slew of oil companies. Newfield, XTO(formerly Dominion), Conoco, Chevron, etc.

None of them can explain to me why diesel is more expensive than gasoline. The only consistent answer is that there are more soccer moms driving big 1 ton diesel pickups. The reason for this is for years, diesel was cheaper. For a reason. It costs less to refine. IT COSTS LESS TO REFINE. The only reason diesel prices are so high is that they want to make more money.

And anyone who thinks that the oil companies will ever lose money is a fool. I am a card carrying republican and even I know better.

I have heard myself that speculators are adding 20 percent to the price of oil now. Supply and demand isn't the whole picture in setting the price on a commodity. I raised cattle and when they put cattle on the board of trade it wrecked the cattle market for the people who actually raised cattle.

Colt- I appreciate the hard knock lesson. Obviously I need to do more research.


No hard feelings. At least you are willing to consider other points of view!

I know the gas prices suck but we just have to suck it up now. It'll get better eventually.....if the gov stays out of it!!

I saw $3.56 for 87 octane locally yesterday. I changed my driving habits early last year - so gas prices have a limited effect on me. I drive to work, church, and occasionally visit family or friends. Outside of necessity, I do very little driving now. Last week, I spent about $21 on gas for my Tacoma and my wife spent about $25 for gas for her Jeep. This may be an extreme example - but you can survive the gas prices - if you adapt your life accordingly. Too many people are stuck in their luxury lifestyle and creature comforts though. As a rule - many people don't NEED to drive all over the place. Many consider it a "right" to joy ride for cheap. Compared to our grandparents, our generation is like a bunch of spoiled kids. Yes - gas prices suck. Learn to adapt accordingly. Thanks to environmentalists and other retards- we can't drill for oil off of Alaska or Florida.
