Re: OT Bush you watching?
<font face="Comic Sans MS">Yes, you got it right. It's President Bush that wiped out refineries, ruined transportation capabilities, and in fact depending on who you listened to, caused the hurricane as well. In fact, the hurricane was just a cover story the Government perpetuated with the media, they really just faked it, the entire thing is just a massive conspiracy to raise the price of fuel. I wish people would start thinking about what they're saying and looking at the facts. Fact: Not enough refinery capability. Fact: When some refinery capability goes down, supply goes down. Fact: When supply goes down, demand stays the same, cost goes up. Fact: It's difficult to get a new plant built with all the excessive regulations combined with NIMBY attitudes prevalent in many places, most times it won't matter how much money is thrown at a problem.
What do you think will happen when they fix the price of fuel at a certain rate, if that's what you want? Don't you suspect there may be a decrease in supply? I do, because if they can sell it more profitably someplace else, they will. It's just what happens, since they're in business to make money and not in business simply for the common good. I don't see anything in the Constitution about cheap gasoline and diesel.
Now if a station is price gouging I recommend reporting them to the state's Attorney General to see if there's anything they can do about it. </font>
