Sad..because we do have gas but greed makes life miserable for many.
There is always a lame reason but you will notice how the price always jumps when the weather starts to get nice for traveling.
Sometimes I wonder if the news would stop reporting about gas hikes because they are giving the dealers a cushion by warning us about the jumps. If people got caught off guard, we might make more noise and at least try to make the dealers etc as miserable as they are making us :) I feel better now..Just my 2 cents..

Obama supports high gas prices so we drive less and he turned down that pipeline thing.

Instability in the Middle East and speculators betting on gas futures. It actually has very little to do with the economy right now.

So big corporations are getting less money for less amount of gas needed because of these "green" cars, and since the cars have higher mpg, the gas prices will go higher. So people w/lower gas mileage keep the prices lower.

At least so I've heard.

Wow umm who do you blame for the prices? Cause if it's the company's and workers that drill and risk their lives to retrieve the gas from the ground or do you blame the government. Honestly my answer depends on your answer

The demand is high right now cause of the nice weather, people want to go out of town. In order for them to be able to go away they need fuel in their vehicles.

It's because the gas companies know that you need their resource and no matter how much they raise it, it will still be bought. Imagine if say milk jumped $.95 a gallon within a month, no one would buy milk. Can't do that with gas because Americans are too lazy to bike, walk, bus, carpool, etc etc. CEO's know this which is why they make millions of dollars a year and you don't.
