gasoline heads to $3.00/gallon Damn BUSH!

PostBy: coalkirk On: Tue Jan 12, 2010 9:55 am

Well here we go again, gas heading to $3.00 per gallon. It's obvious that Bush's ties to big oil......Wait a minute. Bush is gone!!! Obama must have ties to big oil!! Or could it be that gas IS actually a world commodity out of the control of the president? For those of you wondering what I'm talking about, everytime gas went up in the past the Libs on the forum cried like little school girls that it was Bush taking care of his buddies in the oil biz. Can't wait to hear the reason now why it was Bushes fault then but not Obamas fault now. :lol: :lol: :roll:

it started with the retired WWI navy admirals who got into the big oil biz here in the states and thier insatiable need for Power and control. When I was mandated to go to "gasoline" school for a week of daily 8 hr classes, just to be able to own a texaco station, it was clearly stated how they developed thier marketing into control freak mentality. they manipulate pennies to watch the people run like lemmings from brand to brand to save cents.

as time moved on the passing of the torch worked its way up thru the political chain


its all obamas fault now!! :D .. bush is giving him advise :P

That was the battle cry every week in our local newspaper. The words "Bush" and "big oil" appeared ad nauseum, along with the Bush bashing on the local news stations.

But we all know everything from here on out will be Bush's fault. That's just the way it is. He was such a terrible president, keeping us safe and all. :lol:

It is the trading and speculation that is bumping the price so quickly. Before deregulation, oil trades cleared in one place.
In this way, it was clear when someone was making a move to corner or jack prices. Now, after deregulation, it trades all
over the place, so if you have the cash and the nads, you can corner it and dump to make some quick money.
Both parties have had a piece of deregulation over the years. The motive? Quick easy money. The down side is what we
have today. The entire world economy tipping over the edge held back by amazing gov spending. Oh, that and stupid pricing
on the stuff we need. Not good for anybody.......except the guy cornering/dumping. Until he gets caught in his zipper...
When the morg thing hit, every one pulled there money out of the market and oil to cover losses. The guys holding oil futures
got creamed because that money was needed else where, so people sold the futures. Oil dropped like a rock. Had nothing to
do with supply and demand of the juice, it was the money. So, we are at the point where the investment vehicle is doing the
driving, not that which is being bought and sold. Until reasonable rules are again in place( regulation) we will continue to get
creamed and our very way of life will hang in the balance. Not very comforting.

Lookin' like $2.64 - $2.89/gal for #2, & $2.61 - $2.98 for regular in central MA. Wide range as usual. They seem to jack the prices up where the yuppies live.

Remember when #2 used to cost NOWHERE NEAR what gas cost? Same with diesel ... :wtf:

I has to be someone's fault? What about good 'ol supply & demand? The cold weather is causing more oil than ever to be burned for heat, soooo.... whatya think the price is going to do? Of course once an actual thing starts the price moving, then the game begins. As soon as the weather warms a bit, it'll be "extra work to replenish supplies", Then "start of tourist season". It will once again keep going up until we stop using it like it's water. As long as we're willing to pay it, they'll charge it!

I totally agree Freddy. It's just that prior to Obama coming down from Mt. Olympus, it was always Bush's fault. The lack of braying about the rising fuel prices now that he's landed is deafening.

It still goes back to loose monetary policy. And both this and the last administration are guilty of that. If the Fed didn't PRINT it, then no one could SPEND it! Simple as that. BHO wants NHC. That costs money. Bushco wanted wars. Wars are expensive. Print it, spend it, lather, rinse, repeat...

I think the fact that Bush was an oil man & allowed the price to go over the $4.00 mark doesn`t help matters. Think about it if you had gotten away with it once & made more money than anytime in history wouldn`t you try again. At least they are keeping the speculators down a bit & nailing some.

Let's just hope Obama & Co. try's something to keep the greedy speculators and Oil Co's from driving up the price of oil to the point where it take's even longer for our economy to come back. We all know there was no chance of that with Bush & Co in power.

News Flash: GWB has been out of office for about a year now, I thing we can stop blaming things like the cost of gasoline on him at this point. No--WAIT--I've got it figured out. GWB is a greedy oil man and he is quietly working behind the scenes the drive up the price of gasoline so he can make even more money and also to make Obama look bad. Makes perfect sense doesn't it??
