America is being hard in Iran and russia by having their Saudi buddies flood the market dropping oil prices. Gas prices are down everywhere because oil is cheaper.

There's no justification for the high price of gasoline.


Profit.

At Exxon Mobil and Chevron, Refining Businesses Support Earnings


Exxon Mobil’s quarterly profit rose to $8.07 billion from $7.87 billion in the year-ago period. Profits from refining climbed to $1.02 billion from $592 million a year earlier. Earnings from exploration and production fell 4.4 percent.

Similarly, Chevron’s quarterly earnings rose to $5.59 billion compared with $4.95 billion a year earlier. Refining profits soared almost fourfold to $1.39 billion. Its earnings from oil and gas production in the United States and abroad fell modestly.


What more justification do you need than profit? Job creators and trickle-down economics, remember?

Let's face it, it's the same old bs from the two ruling parties in this country. EVERY election cycle, it's the same thing. They pander to the populace in an effort to make everyone think they "really care," only to show how little they do care once elections are over. Same ol, same ol. Bleh.

I just paid 2.69 here in Columbia, SC. I can't even remember the last time it was under $3.00. I'm expecting it to go back up to $3.20 or so in the next few weeks.

That is the very purpose of this thread, LOL , thanks for your input , and thank you everyone else for the input. We still have a couple more weeks of checking in with this thread I was guessing the price would take a couple of weeks after the election and would go up some but I think it'll go up allot right around thanksgiving, go figure huh!

Yesterday it was 2.88, today 2.87.
I will be shocked if these prices last a week before steadily climbing again.

My last post about the gas station that was down to $2.96, is now back up to $3.16 just a couple of days after the election, alright everyone time to start posting on how your gas prices are going back up.

We had dropped down to $2.78 on the 4th. It is back up to $2.96 this morning. At least it's creeping back up and not all coming back at once

In a suburb outside Buffalo, NY, it's around 3.50/g whereas a few weeks ago it was 3.90 or so.

Gotta love NYS.

It is now $2.59 here in Dallas. It went down 3 cents since November 5th. Maybe I should go fill up since other posters are stating prices are starting to go up again!

Nothing ticks me off more than the price of gas only going down 2 cents and then jumping back up 15 cents the next day! (And it's always right when I need to get some!)
