    I am curious as to why several counties around us have lower gas prices than we do. Also noteworthy; why is the Pilot and Murphy USA always SUBSTANTIALLY less expensive than the other stations run by local distributors? These are the questions I would like to see answered. Good old Meridian.... getting screwed by the same 4 or 5 merchant families for 7 generations!

    Amen to "Another Voice". Of course, that means getting out of the studio and doing some digging for the truth...not just listening to a local wealthy dealer.

    Obama has the country so broke that gas prices must rise to to pay for the tax returns.

    It's high for two main reasons. One, it's a global commodity market - everything taken out of the ground is sold into that market, and everyone buys from that market. Domestic production has no effect on domestic prices. Two, since it's a global market, threatening war on another Middle Eastern country tends to make people nervous, and nervous people tend to think it might be a good idea to hoard some of their supply for themselves. Oh, and that global commodity market? It's being manipulated by a lot of the same traders who brought us the Enron fiasco, it's a game to them and the more you pay for a gallon of gas, the more money they make.

Who are the one that declares war on a Oil Producing country? 5. What info does Speculators use to determine the future price of gas?

      When Bush was President and gas prices rose, the liberals including Obama tried to say that Bush and Chenney were in with the big oil companies. What is Obamas excuse?
