prices never quite go down to where they were before, and the slightly higher price gets accepted as the new normal price. They have been
playing this game for as long as i can remember.
Truth be revealed. Thanks for reminding us.
I worked at a gas stating during the gas "crunch" in the late 70's. The threat of "no gas" only made people buy more. The only shortage was when
the pumps ran out because people bought it all before the next shipment.
I remember the owner of the gas station gleeful at the time because of increased profits. I also note they don't pull that crap anymore. They just
announce higher prices like you said juuust before summer.
The oil price tends to rise if there is any tension in the middle east which is quite frequently. Here in Australia I can buy milk for $1.00 AUD a
litre but petrol is about $1.60 AUD a litre. So apparently it is cheaper to buy a cow feed it and milk it then transport and process the milk etc than
It doe's not seem long ago that oil was $ 29 a barrel  and they still pull 750.000.000 million barrel's a WEEK from the Earth that is 36
billion barrel's a year and it was as high as 900 million barrel's a week that was being pumped out of the Earth for a while .
Now do the math's 300 ton's of organic material to make 1 gallon of oil according to scientist's 38 gallons in a barrel x 36 billion per annum
