Gas prices will fall when people start quitting their jobs to collect Unemployment cause they can't afford to drive to work.

I'm not a cheerleader for Big Oil by no means.
Just how I see it unfolding


I agree with most of your post except your first sentence, the Democrats instigated the steady rise of fossil fuel from Bidenís first day in office.
Heck thatís what they campaigned on, war against fossil fuel.
But now I think you are right, the oil companies are gouging, driving the price to record highs, so people will vote the greenies out of power.
Hopefully then we can get back to building pipelines, fracking, and again making us energy independent.



I am certainly no fan of any Democrat but..............if what you guys believe is true, how do you explain the high & higher fuel costs in the rest of the world ? Are you saying that oil companies want to change all government leaders ?

You do know that oil companies have to BUY the oil they pump. It isn't free to them. Their costs are increasing too.

Markets, not oil companies, control the price of fuels.

It is always easier to shoot the messenger. It doesn't solve anything, but, hey, at least you did something. I'll start you all in the right direction. There is a law called supply and demand. It is a law you can't repeal.

Spending over 1,500 a month to run the work truck, as long as the phone keeps ringing I don't care what it cost per gallon as I just pass the cost on. If the phone quits ringing and fuel is over 5 its gonna be hard, hard times.

Well, golly, Chuck. Nice to see you stick up for the feckless moron you helped vote in. Unfortunately, I drive about 40K miles a year for my job, which translates to a pay cut of about an $8,000.00 for the year and tracking to get worse. Tack on the beating we are taking in the markets and it makes it awfully tough to appreciate the current leadership. But, you tell yourself whatever you need to, so you can sleep at night.



Charles has been on the public dole since at least age 62, from what he has shared here. The democrats bought him and his support.

White 17. During the Trump years when we were energy independent , oil price per barrel actually went negative for a while. Now we are competing with the rest of the developed world for a limited supply of oil from opec and other countries who do not care for the USA. So yes the market is driving the price higher. July of 2020 heating oil was $1.59 in northern NY, today close to $6.00, thatís the difference between us being independent and being dependent on countries that hate us. But implying the Democrats policies have little to do with the current high price of oil is ignorant of the facts.

I agree completely. Democrat policies are certainly making the problem worse.
That's a lot different than claiming that the oil companies are ......"are gouging, driving the price to record highs".

I guess I'm just ignorant of the facts.

Yes oil prices went negative. Did anyone thing the oil companies and OPEC didn't take notice There is a saying that the cure for low prices is low prices and the cure for high prices is high prices.

White and Ks Cat don't use reason and market forces.

Luckily the dollar hasn't lost its value. When it does, if supply and demand remain static, oil will go over 200 USD.
