I wonder how many BOc members think the oil companies are treating us fairly with petroleum products. Do you believe they are making only ten cents per gallon of Gas? Five years ago I decided to install new windows and increase my insulation value...in my area the natural gas rate was about $6.00 per unit...next year it was $9.00 per unit, so much for conserving energy...today it is around $16.47 per unit in this area. The price increase was all hurricane related...or some nut case in Iran, seems like it is just another reason to bend us over a barrel...of oil that is. The oil companies will use any event to increase profits, tactics like a fear of shortage...remember the rationing during the Reagon years. Supply and demand...I was taught in the old days about this...the bottom line for this is what ever the market will bear...very much in effect today. Went for gas today, I paid $2.45 for regular, two hours later I went past the same station...guess what it was $2.89...who in the " H " is holding the trigger...who decides the increase and how does all the stations get this information all at one time. All states are different as far as prices, it depends on each state's " special blends " especialy those members in California. How many people notice how much the state to state taxes are on gasoline, seems to me states are just about as bad as oil companies, supposed to be for road improvement, you should drive on some Ohio roads...wonder what happened to all that money.
