The fed needs to slow down the printing of the US dollar if you want to see the price of oil to go down.

We NEED NEW REFINERIES, but Obama and the EPA are holding us hostage by not allowing new permits! Obama can watch it all he wants but releasing stockpiles will never solve this problem. Currently in CA several of the refineries are under maintenance and the rest of the problem is CA as several EPA formulas of gas changing with the season and they stop producing one to start the next!

I’m sure there keeping an eye on gas prices.

Same thing every year. They slow down production or even close down to swap over to “spring/summer” blend.

We are all watching the price of gas climb every day. even yesterday when oil dropped 8 bucks by me they raised the prices. The White house can look at it all they want, until they decided to actually do something to fix the problem they are just wasting time and putting out press releases that just prove they are doing nothing about it. While everything goes up in price Obama wants more taxes money from the crippled middle class he swore to protect.

Really White House? Did you keep a close eye on the price of oil for March delivery dropping the same three weeks that gasoline prices at the pumps were rising? How curious! The fact is, oil companies have already made up the losses they are expecting in March, and you want credit for that sham! Fine, you can have it!

That’s all the White House has ever done with gasoline prices, except for those few times per year when they allow them to come down for personal benefit. Too many people are making huge amounts of money being the pimps for big oil and corporations. America loves getting sold out, so I say… so be it. It isn’t the people’s government anymore anyway. Let the sheeple starve!
