And the cost of a barrel of

And the cost of a barrel of oil continues to "hover" around $40.00 per, and has for several weeks. I still remember, as the price of a gallon of gasoline skyrocketed, that it was the cost of oil per barrel that created the need to increase the cost of gasoline at the pump. Could this have been an "untruth?" Now it is the refiners that justify their need to raise the price of gasoline because there has been a much lower demand for gasoline recently in America. Really? I believe that I have been "demanding" more fuel since gasoline plummeted from $4.00 per gallon; how about you? GGpap

GG, you're forgetting another

GG, you're forgetting another reason they threw at us...the demand for oil/gas in India and China was skyrocketing!! THAT'S why we had to pay those outrageous prices back then, or so they say. I tell you what I really don't understand is why the oil companies let the prices go down when the American people changed their driving habits, and what do they expect the American people to do when they start increasing the prices again?? We're going to go back to our decreased driving habits, that's what! You understand what I mean?
