Fuel Prices

Is anyone else getting as torqued off about fuel prices as I am? I have 4 other cars and the sons/ stepsons that drive them, besides my powerstroke, so gass prices are hitting me really hard. I'm only on a SS disability check, and have very limited income. I think it's time for the politicians to do more than talk about the problem.
I live in the mid south, and there are refineries all around us. Why should we pay for the mistake made by the oil company CEO's who pockted money over the last 20 years, laying off thousands of workers both refinery and construction/maintanance so they could take home a few million more dollars.
They should have been planning for the future, we all try to. The politicians should make the CEO's pay for this. But this will not happen since we all know where the politicians get their money.
And now I hear GE sold part of it's company to a Saudi owned company. Why not they have all the money. When we sold our oil, gas was $0.25 per gal. When we sell Saudi/OPEC oil it suddenly is worth $3.50. If this keeps up we will wake up some day, and all the companies in the USA will be owned by other countries.:bonk:

Amen Brother! The day before yesterday it jumped 15 cents on regular, and today between 7:00 and 5:00 it jumped another 10 cents that's 25 cents in less than three days. I'm almost ready for another Boston Tea Party!! Only this time with oil companies and politicians being dumped into the drink.

And if you think about it you get hit from every direction. The Fuel prices also reflect in the cost of goods and services all across the board.

Diesel is supposed to be cheaper than gas. it's easier to refine.

In the summer months the refinery adds butain to the gasoline mix, that's why gas is more expensive in the summer. There is no such addition for diesel so it should not go up. And yes the rising fuel cost hit all other products as well. Even though we know most products are delivered to the store by a diesel truck, the stores will jack up pricing every time "Gas" goes up.

its all a friggen rip off anyway, i remember when diesel was 89 cents a gallon. no reason it should be so expensive now, we are paying the price because the oil companies are putting the money in their pockets, not into restoring and upgrading their refineries so when they break they are shut down for days or weeks.

just filled up my truck for $2.890 today, that's at my local COOP, usually about 10-15 cents cheaper on the interstate... Filled my wife's car with $3.299 unleaded as well. Dang!!! Diesel fuel should be cheaper, usually its higher by 30 or 40 cents. But its all outa control!
