$3.75 yesterday for premium at Costco. I can't complain. I'd rather drive a fun car and pay a little more for gas than drive a boring car and hate every second of driving.

Pardon me if I don't feel bad for the oil companies when the drill and get a dry hole (so many jokes here). However, the major oil companies have posted billions in profits while normal people foot the bill. I don't see why the gov't will fix the price of corn and milk, but not that of gas at the pump. If there is anything central to the US economy it's oil.

Don't get me wrong, I don't oppose someone making a profit if they run their business well. However, when they are consistently posting profits in the BILLIONS it may be time for some regulation.

Why? Everyone wants to point fingers, but would it make any difference to you directly if they were making profits in the tens of thousands instead of the billions, and gas was still $3.50/gallon? No. The fact that they make thousands or billions is irrelevant to whether or not it sucks to pay $3.50 for a gallon of gas.

Why? Because higher oil prices lead to higher prices of everything in our economy, not just gas. This makes the price of their product an issue of national security by way of economic health. For me, I don't care if the price of gas hits $8.00/gal...I'll still buy it because I can afford it. However, for people with low paying jobs who HAVE to pay big at the pump it's a big issue. Should we allow big business to threaten the stability of the lower and middle classes becuase they want to make BILLIONS? IMHO, oil is a special product and requires special regulation.

I really dont care about the gas prices, I wouldn't want to be payed less for doing the same job I do just because there was a higher demand for me. Plus a dollar or more of the gasoline prices go to State and federal government through tax so thank them for the high prices.

Record profits yes but in relation to their margins they are the same. Oil companies work at 8-10 percent profit margin has been this way for decades. Their recent profits have been bolstered by the price of the oil they produce. Speculators are the main reason that oil is so high just google the Enron loophole. Enron still is screwing everyone.

Just do the math 50 $ barrel =$5 pr 100 = 10$


I paid 4.499 for diesel on Monday . $139.50 to fill my truck needless to say I am riding the Harley more this summer.
