If wholesale prices in a given area between dealers is only 2 or 3 cents, look at all the stations that are ripping us off.

Princes are not going to fall as we continue to export refined fuels from US oil and imports for the profits. Our only way out now is an alternative or hybrid and not using oil.

Just like candy bars, the package is the same size but the bar inside is smaller. Big oil is paying less for barrel & charging us more per gallon

It has been proven repeatedly over the last several months/years that the pump price is totally upwardly independent, irrespective of how low the price of a barrel of crude may fall.

How can oil be falling with such a robust, recovering economy that we have. At least that is what Obama keeps saying. Things sure look rosey when your wearing rose colored glasses.

More pipeline capacity between Cushing and the coast should help bring down Brent and help close the gap with WTI. Of course Keystone XL would have helped too, if it hadn't been blocked for years.
