Gasoline prices went up again about a month ago

Now in my local area, gas is $3.25 a gallon. You can't tell me it's because of supply and demand. Places have been open for at least 6 months now, yet, gas is on the rise. By december I'm willing to bet price of gasoline will be $3.50 if not more.

It's all in an effort to ditch gasoline-powered cars and switch to electric.

@Bri89 Yeah, that's exactly what the oil companies want to see happen, genius.

@MarkPaul It doesn't matter anymore what the oil companies want. The big auto companies are slowly starting to transition to electric, and within ten to fifteen years you won't be able to buy a gasoline-powered car.
MarkPaul · 26-30, M
@Bri89 That's most likely true. But, the big auto companies don't control the price of gas.

All thanks to Biden. We are back to buying oil from terrorists.
A rocket surgeon chimes in..😂
We have never stopped buying from the Middle East….never.@Confined
There are seasonal blends of gas. I know everyone wants to think that the government manipulates the price.🙄.

It’s not exclusively a domestic issue.

Also, how much does a 2x4 cost at Home Depot?
The point being..lumber is expensive..because of pent up demand in housing..@twiigss

@SW-User Before the whole virus thing started, gas was $2.69. During the shutdown gas prices dropped to about $2.40 here locally. Even when things were opening back up, gas was back at $2.69, but continued normal fluctuations, between $2.69 and $2.74. But then, about 2 or 3 months later, it went to something like $2.89, then $2.96, $3.05, and it's been climbing steadily ever since. It hasn't fluctuated lower, it's only been rising.
@twiigss The Saudi’s have agreed to increase production next month and going forward.
It is what it is.🤷🏻‍♂️

Summer prices go up

I’m paying $3.65. By the fall I won’t be surprised if gas prices rise to $4 where I live. I thought the increase in gas prices was from them shutting down the pipelines

@MrAboo That's the same thing I've heard. Were the pipelines still being constructed or were they fully operational?

@twiigss I don’t know for sure, but a lot of ppl lost their job when bozo in office shut it down.

There are many complex issues that can affect manufacturing and processing supply chains.
