EPA wants to impose a higher tax in Cali. 15 cents higher than what it is now.



Dirty liberals want to tax how many miles we drive cause their own dirty liberal friends drive a Prius and not enough gas is being bought for the tax to make a difference.

Look in the mirror everyone! It's all our fault. Not Bush, Clinton, Obama, etc down the line. Until we as a society demand renewable energy and cleaner technology, we'll be susceptible to the ills of the middle east and other 3rd world banana republics with oil. This playbook was written long ago with the enrichment of a select few in mind.

Most likely once we are on electric the prices will be even higher lol. You watch once they don't have the gas tax they will go for the money at registration. In many ways the cost increases to higher technology cars, higher registration to pay for roads, toll roads etc will hit poor people more then rich people.

You could be right, one day it may all be solar, wind, who knows. But don't go thinking it will be that great for the avg consumer. You will still struggle to charge your car with electricity. You think electric service providers aren't licking chops?

Four dollars per gallon of gasoline. Skyrocketing food prices. Lowest labor participation rate since the 70's. 50 million on food stamps. This in spite of trillions of dollars in debt and perpetual quantitative easing. Obama has had everything he wanted in the past six years except for gun confiscation and blanket amnesty. At what point is it okay to affix blame to his policies for destroying the middle class?

Fox had it right when Bush was in office; politicians can't change it, use less, be less dependent, ride a bike. yadda, yadda.

This is priceless.



But once Obama enters office, it's Obama's fault, even when it's obvious to Fox the US oil companies are exporting oil.

The $720 boost from falling gas prices

By Jeffry Bartash
Published: Oct 29, 2014 10:06 a.m. ET

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The OPEC oil cartel is not happy about falling gasoline prices, but Americans are pretty chipper about it. Consumers confidence soared in October to the highest level in seven years in no small part because Americans are paying less to fill up at the gas station.

How much less? Regular gasoline has fallen to a nationwide average of $3.06 a gallon from as high as $3.70 in late June. The 17% plunge in gasoline over the past four months put prices at a four-year low and they are likely to go even lower. Many analysts think gasoline could fall below $3 a gallon — in many places the price already has ) and stay there until at least early next year.


The savings are significant and come as welcome relief to consumers whose weekly paychecks are still barely growing five years after the end of the Great Recession.

Also see: Consumer stocks should eventually benefit from low gas prices

Consider a family that buys 90 gallons a month to fill up two cars. Household savings would total about $60 a month at current prices compared to what a family would have paid early in the summer. That’s $720 over a full year.

Here’s another way to look at it. The average individual spent as much as 4% of his annual income on gasoline in mid-2008 during the last big global spike in oil prices. Now the percentage each person spends is about to fall below 3% for the first time since 2010. Sounds small but that represents big savings.

Declining prices are an unabashedly good thing for the broader economy, even if they make America’s new “fracking” oil barons shudder in places such as North Dakota, Colorado and Pennsylvania. Lower energy prices cut shipping and other costs for companies ranging from e-tailers such as Amazon AMZN, -0.50% to passenger airlines like Southwest LUV, -1.16% .

Many economists also predict Americans will use their savings at the pump to buy other goods and services — and pump up the U.S. economy in the process.

“We expect the surge in consumer confidence to assist in holiday retail sales growth this year,” said Chris G. Christopher Jr. director of U.S. consumer economics at IHS Global Insight. “Elevated levels of consumer confidence assist shoppers spending on discretionary items, especially in November and December.”

What could end the party? Saudi Arabia or other big international oil suppliers could slash production to boost prices. Or resurgent American oil producers could find it uneconomical to extract much more oil from the ground unless prices stabilize. A barrel of oil CLZ4, -0.23% has slumped to around $82 from nearly $104 early in the summer.

Yet almost no one in the industry expects that to happen before the end of the year — if at all — unless prices fall dramatically lower.

The Gasoline Price debate exhausts me. Too many moving parts and too global to attribute to a Presidents actions. Crude production has never been under State control, so it is hard to attribute to a President specifically and based his policy merit off it.

Funny - didn't hear any complaining like this from you when your good ol' oil boys Smirk and Snarl were in office.

FYI, that's when gas went from $1 to >$4.

The Kerry-Abdullah Secret Deal
Oil-Gas Pipeline War On Iran, Syria And Russia


By ​​​​F. William Engdahl

October 29, 2014 "ICH" - The details are emerging of a new secret and quite stupid Saudi-US deal on Syria and the so-called IS. It involves oil and gas control of the entire region and the weakening of Russia and Iran by Saudi Arabian flooding the world market with cheap oil. Details were concluded in the September meeting by US Secretary of State John Kerry and the Saudi King. The unintended consequence will be to push Russia even faster to turn east to China and Eurasia.

One of the weirdest anomalies of the recent NATO bombing campaign, allegedly against the ISIS or IS or ISIL or Daash, depending on your preference, is the fact that with major war raging in the world’s richest oil region, the price of crude oil has been dropping, dramatically so. Since June when ISIS suddenly captured the oil-rich region of Iraq around Mosul and Kirkuk, the benchmark Brent price of crude oil dropped some 20% from $112 to about $88. World daily demand for oil has not dropped by 20% however. China oil demand has not fallen 20% nor has US domestic shale oil stock risen by 21%.

What has happened is that the long-time US ally inside OPEC, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has been flooding the market with deep discounted oil, triggering a price war within OPEC, with Iran following suit and panic selling short in oil futures markets. The Saudis are targeting sales to Asia for the discounts and in particular, its major Asian customer, China where it is reportedly offering its crude for a mere $50 to $60 a barrel rather than the earlier price of around $100. [1] That Saudi financial discounting operation in turn is by all appearance being coordinated with a US Treasury financial warfare operation, via its Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, in cooperation with a handful of inside players on Wall Street who control oil derivatives trading. The result is a market panic that is gaining momentum daily. China is quite happy to buy the cheap oil, but her close allies, Russia and Iran, are being hit severely.

The deal

According to Rashid Abanmy, President of the Riyadh-based Saudi Arabia Oil Policies and Strategic Expectations Center, the dramatic price collapse is being deliberately caused by the Saudis, OPEC’s largest producer. The public reason claimed is to gain new markets in a global market of weakening oil demand. The real reason, according to Abanmy, is to put pressure on Iran on her nuclear program, and on Russia to end her support for Bashar al-Assad in Syria.[2]

When combined with the financial losses of Russian state natural gas sales to Ukraine and prospects of a US-instigated cutoff of the transit of Russian gas to the huge EU market this winter as EU stockpiles become low, the pressure on oil prices hits Moscow doubly. More than 50% of Russian state revenue comes from its export sales of oil and gas.

The US-Saudi oil price manipulation is aimed at destabilizing several strong opponents of US globalist policies. Targets include Iran and Syria, both allies of Russia in opposing a US sole Superpower. The principal target, however, is Putin’s Russia, the single greatest threat today to that Superpower hegemony. The strategy is similar to what the US did with Saudi Arabia in 1986 when they flooded the world with Saudi oil, collapsing the price to below $10 a barrel and destroying the economy of then-Soviet ally, Saddam Hussein in Iraq and, ultimately, of the Soviet economy, paving the way for the fall of the Soviet Union.

That evil EU, they're going to ruin the troofer conspiracy theories!

Russia and Ukraine agree gas supply deal

Quote:
Russia has agreed to resume gas supplies to Ukraine over the winter in a deal brokered by the European Union.

The deal will also ensure gas supplies to EU countries via Ukraine are secure.

"There is now no reason for people in Europe to stay cold this winter,'' said European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.

European Union energy chief Guenther Oettinger said he was confident that Ukraine would be able to afford to pay for the gas it needed.

He added that the agreement might be the "first glimmer" of hope in easing tensions between Russian and Ukraine.

Um, you are aware that your heroes Smirk & Snarl were both oil men, right?

Team Smirk basically allowed oil companies to write U.S. energy policy.

And are you now denying that the instability in the ME region caused by Dumbya's invasion and occupation of Iraq had any impact on oil prices?

Yes gas prices all because Obama makes cool speeches and plays a lot of golf. We'd be lost without his great leadership.

So, in other words, just like your hero the cowboy from "Toy Story," except that his speeches actually contain complete sentences?
