Its not that the corporations won't build the refineries its that they have not been allowed to build them. I don't think we need the goverment in the middle it would only drive prices higher. Try to name the last thing that the goverment did effeciently or more effeciently than the private sector.

power regulation. deregulation have private sector building power plants in places like montana and trying to send the power across the country. The limited transmission bandwidth meant that this "cheap power" was causing blackouts and RAISING prices.

You need regulation when the private sector can't manage itself.

Re: F... gas prices

There seems to be a big misconception about how Gas stations operate. I know a thing or two about how they work since my father and his business partner owned 5 of them and I worked for them for couple of summers. Gas stations don't make money from selling gas...they are like drug street pushers. How many street pushers you think make top dollar? If a gas station makes 5 cents per gallon sold they are doing alright. Gas stations typically make most of their money from their food market, especially the sale of Soda, Smokes, and Beer. There are some gas stations that do make a killing but this is only if there is no gas station around them that they have to compete with.

The chain to get gas from the ground to your tank has up to 6 links. Governments selling it, big gas corporations like BP, cured oil transporters, refineries, interstate refined oil transporters, and finally local transporters.

Who do you think takes the biggest cut out of every gallon you buy? Uncle Sam! That's right, your federal "child molesting" Uncle Sam takes 18.4 c/pg cut of each gallon sold. Your local "i hate you" Uncle Sam takes on average 21 c/pg cut. You think the the federal and state governments have a vested interest in reducing prices? Yes, but only because they are worried people aren't going to go out (drive) and buy other stuff.

Good info...

I really don't have a problem w/ the gov't taxing gas. It's not the gov't that sets these $4/gallon prices. The gov't most likely charges a certain %, why should the gov't lower their tax when the oil companies are raising their prices. The oil co's would get richer and the gov't poorer if the gov't just decided to cut it's gas tax.

I don't pretend to know all there is about the price of gas, but i don't blame the gov't as much as i do the oil co's.

Re: F... gas prices

They need to drill for more oil in America. We have plenty of it, but for some reason we're not allowed to, even though our economy needs it really bad and alternative sources are still pretty far away.

Re: F... gas prices

There is a small contingent of people in this area who have a process to refine the cast off grease from the fast food restaurants and other sources to make deisel. I am sure it is not unique technology. Something that can be set up by almost anybody. Apparently it is not to expensive to get started, (although maybe a hassle) and something on the order of 50 cents a gallon to refine. Interesting.............

Can You Run Your Car On Biodiesel - Biomass

Biodiesel is very popular among environmentalists, and others willing to do what it takes to convert their cars to run on the stuff. There are home kits you can buy that will turn your waste oil into biodiesel fuel...

Re: F... gas prices

Back when I was still driving gas prices were at 2.95-3.00ish and I thought they were raping me lol, now all the pumps in my area are selling for around 3.69 as of yesterday lol. I wish we were back in the days when you could get a gallon for like 2.50.
