The refining business is amazing to me. The refiners can reduce their refining capacity and make more money because the prices for the inventory they have go up while their labor and other production costs go down. This is a profit driven cartel that cares little or nothing about the average citizen, only about bigger dividends for the shareholders.

Greed is the operative word here. The amazing part of it is that the petroleum producers are allowed to continue to get away with it. This smacks of payoffs that has been going on for years. Most of the rest of our country is scraping to get by, yet the refiners continue to rack up exorbitant profits.

Check the prices of toilet tissue or paper towels recently? Compare them to a year ago. The petroleum industry is no different than any other profit-driven business. Someone PLEASE name a product that HAS NOT increased at least 10% in the last two years. Would you like government to OWN all industry (as Mr Obama would like them to do) then 'set' the prices to make everyone smile? If you'd like that, go to China.

The gasoline and oil prices have been manipulated and administered for years. What is new: is that since Bush/Cheney and now Obama . no attempt is being at the presidential or Congressional level to do anything about it except to support it.

Jimbob47......... that's exactly what I would expect a brain washed conservative ditto head to say.I don't know how old you are, but I would like to ask all over 60 if they ever remember during the 60's, 70's, 80's or 90's the price of gasoline going up and down like a ping pong ball? The oil companies and their drones (aka brain washed conservatives), now not all conservatives are brain washed, I just wish some of them would speak up and answer my question. The article in the ADG a couple of days ago said oil imports are down, US supplies are up, demand is down. Now jimbob47 duh! duh! does that sound like a scenario based on supply and demand that would cause gas prices to go up? They have been doing blend swapping in the spring for decades so don't blame that. Now, how many of you believe it is the gamblers on Wall Street and their computers making trades in the commodity. Yep, I would believe that would cause prices to go up and down like a ping pong ball. But, ole jimbob47 just can't get his head around something that logical.

How has that Department of Energy thing worked out. You know of reducing our dependance on FOREIGN OIL.

Hey koolaid.... something you have missed.
U.S. report: Oil imports down, domestic production highest since 2003
According to the study, the United States reduced net imports of crude oil last year by 10%, or 1 million barrels a day. The U.S. now imports 45% of its petroleum, down from 57% in 2008, and is on track to meet Obama’s long-term goal, the administration maintains.

Imports have fallen, in part, because the United States has increased domestic oil and gas production in recent years.
