Why are gas prices so high?
    #3932394 - 03/17/05 10:02 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just paid $2.10 a gallon. FUCK

I know the news says the the price of oil per barrel is rising, :blah: :blah:, but that's not a good enough answer.

Our president/vice president are so deep into the oil industry that they wouldn't dare grant the funding of a vehicle that ran on vegetable oil (hemp fuel).

Mostly the rising demand for oil, along with speculator greed. I don't think we've seen the worst of this yet....

I commute to school (40 min away), otherwise I'd park the bitch.

I want a VW diesel, then I'd like to add this:

They are so high because they can get away with it. What are you going to do about it? Jack shit, thats what.
There is no shortage of oil whatsoever. Oil whores like Bush and Dick want to charge you more to drive your car around to line their pockets, so they won't fund research for better fuels. OPEC is a load.

It's because of fear. Speculators or whoever is in the oil futures market hear bad news and buy buy buy, when that happens prices skyrocket, and we get the shit end of the stick.

But the oil won't hit the market for years.

The war was really not about oil (in the short term). Really.

Oil's a non-renewable resource(unless you wait billions of years for more plants to fossilize), and there's growing demand for it. Thus, prices will continue to rise until it becomes too unbearable to remain the status quo, and then the market will switch to a cheaper, more efficient fuel source(possibly hemp, as you suggest).

The war was really about establishing America as a dominant power in the Middle East. Oil was one of many cover stories.

But oil is the reason we want to dominate the Middle East. The oil companies control our lives much more than people realize.
