Those who said gas prices were up due to demand

So gas prices are still going up and are going to continue to go up. What's your reasoning for gas prices going up now?

  • It's greed, plain and simple. Anyone who understands the economy and the entire supply/demand concept knows that prices don't react that quickly; prices are adjusted daily around here.

  • – collapse
    Republicans are in office. Everytime republicans win seats, prices go up. Pay attention, look at when gas prices were well over 4 bucks a gallon, republicans were in office. We will see them go that high again. Dems get in office and fix things for us, republicans get back in and we suffer again.

  • OPEC says the world can handle $100 a barrel oil right now. I think I read this in the WSJ. I think they are maximizeing their profits. Too bad the US can't use her own resources......

  • Why can't we use our own resources????????????

    It wouldn't be because of the tree-huggers would it?

  • greeeeeeed.
    We need alternative sources such as wind power for starters.
    And IF there is a good way to get our own , get it from somewhere that there will be no oil spills,etc.

  • #1- The Republicans AREN'T in office yet. The new Congress hasn't been seated.
    #2- Last time prices dropped was BEFORE the 08 election, when Bush was still in office.
    #3-yeah, it's still the Democrats in office.
