    In the US that’s per gallon (3.8 liters). In Europe that’s per liter.

    Obama has devalued the USA Currency! Oil is traded in $. So of course it is going up up up.
    DRILL HERE DRILL NOW! Open up Alaska and the Keystone Pipeline. Open up the coastal waters. Allow more F racking! If we open up all the oil and Natural Gas we have in the USA we have more then any other county in the world! We the USA would never have to bow down to the middle East again!
    When we bring Oil to the world market it has a three fold effect. It strengthens the $ two fold by backing the USA $ and GDP and it lowers the price by simply having more on the market. The third is JOBS! N Dakota unemployment anyone!

    Oil production in the US is expected to rise by record amounts in 2013. US petroleum imports from other countries are at the lowest level in over 12 years. Of the petroleum we do import, most of the comes from Canada and Mexico.

    Go irritate some other country with the ‘drill-baby-drill’ thing.

    And Republicans were quite insistent in 2007 that the President didn’t control gas prices, but now that a Democrat is in charge, they’re lining up to throw around blame. And whatever happened to Dick “Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter” Cheney?
    The hypocrisy is thick on both sides, so please stuff the righteous indignation where it belongs.

    I laugh long and hard every time I see some video clip of a poor, downtrodden American citizen complaining about gas prices- while standing in front of their 13-mile-per-gallon SUV that’s probably never gone more off-road than running over a curb. Maybe it’s cruel of me, but I enjoy watching idiots suffer for their stupidity.

    Your theory “Obama . . . doing everything he can to prevent drilling” is either a) factually untrue or b) Obama doing a bad job living up to talk radio stereotype.

    Still under $3.70 a gallon in Maine. Remember a few years ago when Republicans said that gas will soon be over $5 a gallon? Still waiting.

    When has the USA “bowed down to the middle east”.

    The global price is about on par with 4.50$/gallon. That said the USA has enough guzzling of oil that companies are willing to sell oil cheap in bulk.

    While oil does increase GDP it can’t simply be done in anyone’s backyard, the mid-west is ideal for this because it has lots of CHEAP land, where concepts of groundwater contamination and the moonscapes that ensue can often be overlooked as collateral

    How much oil are we exporting this year?

    You won’t see lower gas prices unless the government steps in and puts a cap on how much profit can be used for executive salaries, executive bonuses, and shareholder payouts. Oil profits are higher than ever, which means that if bonuses and salaries had risen at the same rate as inflation, gas prices should be lower. Since the same shareholders hold the majority of shares in all of the oil companies, there is no incentive for competition, which means capitalism is not working properly – there should be open competition between the companies, If Exxon wants to sell gas at $1.50 a gallon, it could, and profits would skyrocket, forcing the other companies to fall in line or fold. THAT is how capitalism should work. Unfortunately, since the same people are making the profits from all of them, they would not allow that to happen.
    Adding more domestic oil would do nothing to the prices. Allow alternative fuel sources to compete on the same level, and THEN the prices will come down. They already hold the supply, and our demand has gone up. Make cars more fuel efficient, let them use more alternatives to oil, encourage alternative home energy sources, and gas prices will drop because demand went down.

    “Then the coal company came with the world’s largest shovel
    And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
    Well, they dug for their coal, till the land was forsaken
    Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man.”


    John Prine is on to you.

    Bullsye! Drilling technology & safety continues to improve. Most people have no idea how much extra oil we’d have to dig out of the shale in order to make a dent in prices, & most of the excess would be exported. Do these guys think the oil is going to go bad if we don’t get it NOW, regardless of cost?

    @HOWGOZIT

    Anecdotally, the people I hear complaining loudest about gas prices, choose to live in far suburbs, & drive gas guzzlers over long commutes.

    I spend about $60 a month on gas & I don’t drive a hybrid. I’m curious to know what others are spending.

    Never let the fact that corporations and Commodity Traders determine the price at the pump, not Presidents, get in the way of your righteous indignation.
