    A friend who literally owned an oil company, wells, refinery, and stations, told me years ago, when gas was 24 cents a gallon, that “an oil company is nothing but a license to print money”- still true.

    I mentioned that I know global warming is a hoax, because all proofs require math, and as a G_d-fearing person, I listen to the Doctors and follow what they say about avoiding all math.


    And, as a G-d-fearing person, I was delighted to see many writing, ‘We used math and proved global warming is a hoax.’ These people are so pure, it gladdens my heart, since they have absolutely no idea what ‘math’ is, so they are following the Saints and Doctors even more closely than I.

    By similar feats of “logic”, you may also postulate that Mars has the same average temperature as the Earth, and that since Mars has no coal mines or factories, global warming is a hoax.

    Is “global warming” real? who gives a sh_t? it ain’t gonna change my life one way or the other. I don’t care if gas is 10 bucks a gallon, it’s not gonna change where I go or what I do. I am an average American who just doesn’t care!

    Apparently the government doesn’t “make” enough off of it to properly maintain the
    "free"ways.

    You do know that that’s a pile of conservative bull pucky, right? "But FactCheck.org examined these claims and concluded that “the 7-cents-per-gallon figure grossly underestimates the industry’s earnings. It includes only earnings from the sale of gasoline and not earnings on producing and selling crude oil. There are no independent figures on how much oil companies earn on a gallon of gasoline.”
    .
    According to the Congressional Research Service, the five major oil companies made almost $133 billion in profits in 2011. Exxon alone made more than $41 billion. By contrast, the federal gas tax generated $24 billion in revenue for the Highway Trust Fund in 2011.

    When I took Economics in high school, one thing we were taught was that companies can keep the selling price down by selling in volume. Exxon-Mobil & friends always use the excuse that they MUST raise prices due to unexpected demand! Gas prices were at a very high level for the July 4th weekend here in New England. They will probably be higher Labor Day. And every Autumn, for almost my whole lifetime, I hear in the news that the oil companies have to raise the price of oil because of unexpected demand! Hey, Winter comes aroud EVERY YEAR up here!

    @MangeyMoose

    But… but …but… having gas stored to meet the demand would cut into their profits!

    But then, we don’t ever seem to see people sleeping in their cars, while waiting for gas, as we did in the 1970s…

    Oh right, it’s not supply and demand, it’s just plain demand with a fictional excuse.

    We get that in California, plus the higher prices that result when the refineries are switching between “winter” and “summer” blends. Now that is a bit more involved than a simple increase in demand by customers, but as you point out, it does happen every year.

    The world has been warming and cooling for a very long time.We can’t do anything about it one way or the other.
    Explain the Holocene Maximum the warmest period in human history.It took place a long time before SUV’s and the use of fossil fuel.One would think that it would be impossible for the mummified body of the guy known as “Otzi” to be frozen in the ice in the Alps.
    No link. Look it up yourselves ,if you can.

    It is already changing your life. You just don’t see it or know it. From cheap filler for pot holes to higher energy costs and more destruction caused by 100 year storms every 2 – 5 years. It is climate, and climate is everything. From the cost of food to potable water. You can’t get a way from it. So best to wake up now than later.

    You do know that the government makes more money of that fuel than the oil companies do right?

    Thank you, cons, for starting your posts with “you libs”. It saves me from reading the ignorance that inevitably follows.
    We know you don’t care about anything but yourselves. Nothing to be proud of.
