    The people in the southwest well know what happens when a refinery goes out of action. I think last year one in Kansas went down, gas prices went up. One in Oklahoma went down, prices went up. Recently one in Texas went down, prices went up. Basically it only effected the brothers in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas (I believe). Well, get ready for a national price increase. The wheat harvest in the U.S. was down this year, plus the Chinese bought an abundance of the grain, making it scarce in the U.S. And the government giving incentives to use wheat as an alternate fuel source, has all ready caused the price of a loaf of bread to double. And it is going higher, right along with pasta, pizza's - generally anything based on grains. Face it guys, everything is going to increase fairly rapidly, except wages. There may not be anymore weekend fishing trips as it may be the only way you can break even on the expense would be to camp for a week. I'm retired and can do that, but what about the people still working. I know it would be communistic for our government to stop the oil company's and others from profiting in times like this, but maybe a democracy just isn't going to protect the citizens as it used to.
