It has. I noticed that today when I went to Pueblo. Fortunately, my employer was paying for the gas and the rental car.

Oh really? I thought it was March 1. Then, in that case, I'll bet the attack on Tehran begins on March 19th.

What it's about is Iran's threat to dump oil on the market and selling it in Euros per barrel instead of Dollars per barrel. There was a video of a speech to Congress by Representative Ron Paul about this floating around the net last week. Every time somone threatens to do this, we go to war with them or a coup/assasination attempt is made on them. He talks about that too. Basically, we no longer have a gold standard, and the only way to protect the value of the dollar "as if it were as GOOD AS GOLD" was to make a deal with the oil producing countries in the middle east: We'll protect your empires, you sell your oil in Dollars per Barrel.

The vid is a lot more involved than that simplification, I recommend watching it. Highly enlightening, about a 15 min. long.

I have noticed the price of gas going up dramatically in the last week.

Is this because of the Iran Oil Bourse?
