There is little point in trying to reason this out. If the oceans were full of crude oil instead of salt water you would still have to pay at the pump. Unless you own a cow you pay the current price of milk too.
Let's not try to figure out who is to blame on this thread, Please..............
Not to worry Ard, no intent to start an 'on line' rant thread. I just found it odd that the price of our Petrol has gone up just short of fifty cents a gallon in two weeks.
Question was posited as 'Just us, or is this now common around the US?' For context, the end of the 'gas pipe' is (if memory serves) Eugene, Oregon so anything going south from there comes by tanker truck. 100+ miles full and 100+ back empty.
