OIL AND GAS PRICES HAVE BEEN HYPERINFLATED FOR THE PAST NINE YEARS.
LAST YEAR WE HAD A ALL-TIME HIGH RECORD AVERAGE GAS PRICE AND WE ARE HEADING THERE AGAIN. LAST MONTH WE HAD A 47 MONTH LOW OF GAS CONSUMPTION, AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE "DRIVING SEASON". IT SEEMS THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE CONSERVE, THE PRICE OF GASOLINE KEEPS GOING UP WHILE OIL IS NOWHERE NEAR ITS RECORD HIGH OF 147$ A BARREL. THIS IS MAJOR BILLSHUT, WASHINGTON.

PEOPLE, IT'S TIME TO VOTE CORRUPT POLITICIANS OUT OF OFFICE. BUT DON'T STOP HERE. GO OUT AND PROTEST THE WRONGDOINGS OR IGNORANCE OF OUR GOVERNMENT, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE DEMOCRATIC...AND "FOR THE PEOPLE", YET THEY RAM OBAMACARE AND ETHANOL DOWN OUR THROATS WITHOUT ASKING US IF WE EVER WANTED THIS CRAP.

Even if the "consumers" were "gaining confidence in the economy" the higher gas prices will put a stop to any growth.

The ICE exchange is corrupt & dominated by major players. It is not a free market.

We'll see more ups and downs, but in the long term, with increasing demand from China and India, we can only expect the trend to be higher prices.
