I didnt try to convince anyone nor do i believe they are cynical beliefs. But Id have to go with gas prices since i seen a 2 cent drop the day before
the elections at my favorite gasup, and then 4 days later an 18 cent increase at the same place and still climbing. Wheres the hurricane, wheres the
oil refinery fire? No where, just climbing gas prices again. There was an excellent thread authored on here a few months ago about an Oilopoly here in
California. I think its still ongoing and getting worse here. We never dropped to the level the rest of the country did in pricing and i think we have
more refineries here than most states.
I would just like to say WTF. IN that thread it stated the refineries here were owned by 25 companies, now they are all owned by 5. A statement from
one of the owners of the companies was, "why fill up the reserves when u can charge more for the demand" Kinda brought it all into perspective for
me when i read that. Just my opinion though, no need to convince anyone else of it.
