Oil is one of the VERY FEW products that doesn't follow the basic supply and demand principles of business.
There is plenty of oil but every time some towelhead farts in the middle east the oil speculators on Wall Street have a feeding frenzy.
Drilling more won't solve a damn thing unfortunately because oil speculation sets the prices. Obummer and Bush Light found out they were both powerless to stop it.
Capitalism at it's worst.
$3.85 in Central Florida.
It should be open season on all the fucking speculators.

My provincial gov is so corrupted, that they legislate on the MINIMUM price of gas.

The federal could take action against it, but oil lobbies pay well, i guess.

Wow South Carolina is paying about 3.63 per gallon on an average. I think were the only state that has the lowest gas price. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if we hit 5.15 a gallon by the end of the summer.
