There are so many threads on the board about this topic, I just thought I'd keep a running list of the earnings here.

What I dont understand is how the rise in petrol prices are blamed solely on higher oil prices. Percentagewise, the rise in petrol prices far outstrips oil prices. The only explaination for the current price of petrol has to be price gouging.

Oil rose from $65 to $72/per barrel (+%10.7)

At the same time petrol prices (in Australia) went from $1.13 to $1.44/liter (+%27.4)

If any other commodity rose %10 and consumers were charged close to %30 extra would we accept that the rise is simply due to higher production costs? Couple that with record first quarter earnings from the oil companies and what doubt is left? If the rise in fuel prices was due to higher oil prices then the profit margins should not change.

I know first hand that the oil companies collude in price fixing. No one has the politcal or financial will to take on Big Oil.
