Gasoline Prices - How Are Gasoline Prices Normally Calculated?
Crude Oil 49%
Federal/State/Local Taxes 26%
Crude Oil is the greatest factor in determining Gas Prices. So why when Crude Oil goes down a buck or $2 our prices at the pump contines to go up like .10 cent a week?
I believe its Greed & Corruption.
Even the Republican Attorney General of Florida is implying that price gouging may be in play.
As for Congress, let me tell you something. These Republicans in charge in Washington D.C have sold out the government and forgotten their trust to the people. This Corrupt Congress passed some crazy bill allowing for fines upon Oil Companies for price manipulation, but failed to define the terms for determining such manipulation. Come on!!!
Mr. G.W. Bush is simply absent.
Come November 2006 these folk are going to be greatly surprised. I predict the entire House will be overturned because of these gas prices not to mention a few dozen other things. This is a much greater political crisis than the Iraq War because it effects all Americans right in their bank accounts.
