  • Yeah, I have to agree, it's the taxes. I think it is BS that gas is this high, for you KNOW the oil companies will still profit in the BILLIONS. Wtf IS THAT ALLOWED???

  • I've never understood crap like that. The US seems to get the short end of the stick on everything. I guess we get the "FAMILY" discount from the oil selling nations!

  • Because oil companies are businesses? There are alot of businesses making alot of money in the bad economy. I dont have a issue with that. I do however have an issue with the fact my state alone taxes 30 cents per gallon, and the Fed Govt is taxing us almost 19 cents per gallon. I am paying almost 50 cents a gallon in taxes. Our gas per gallon today is $3.79.

    That would accomplish nothing. People will make up for it before or after that day.

  • What are wages in Mexico?

    In Europe gas has been much higher than it is here for years.....

    I don't know what the difference is in how prices are determined, but I'd rather live here than Mexico.

  • bahahaha 2.80 usd is what we pay a liter of Gas and FYI the normal Mexcian Makes 6-8 thousand pesos a month that is equivalent to
    about 400-700 usd a month. Yes that is the Norm. A great paying job here in Mexico is 12,000 pesos still not even a thousand usd a month. So please go bitch about our low gas prices by the liter here in Mexico where we can only get gas at PEMEX! our gas is monopolized....I miss Texas...

  • Tax + Supply and Demand. That is why it is higher here.
