OK.

Letís use 8 miles/week. 8x52=416 miles/year.

416 / 20 MPG (guesstimate) = 20.8 gallons of gas in one year. 20.8 gallons of gas @ $3.678/Gallon (AAA National Average today) = $76.50 fuel costs per year.

I was a bit shocked to learn this myself. Most people are probably not even aware of it. Hasn't been a problem though. If a cop ever pulls me over and asks where I'm going I will have an answer for him... Something other than "just out for a drive"

You need to get educated on:

1) Supply and Demand
2) Supply Chain
3) Resource Allocation and its influences
4) Macro and Micro
5) Internal and External Factors
6) Long and Short-term Strategies
7) Energy Industry Investments
8) Central GOV Controls
9) USA and Global Energy Policies
10) Consumer Choices

and much more to understand economics, the energy industy, G & O industry and political influences & impacts, before you post replies, it will save you a lot of embarrassment.

If you think refineries play a major role in the cost of gasoline, you have been watching way too much cnn and those other fraudulent stations.

Jesus. This may be the dumbest thing I've read since the 'we can stop climate change' agenda.

I sure hope you don't vote.

I know Governors can control gas prices, Gov. Newsom has our price $1.50 or more than other states.

Do you have a CLUE?

the rest of the world TAXES the he'll out of gas to pay for free HC, Free college and the other free crap they use to buy their populations votes.




And oil production in the USA IS controlled by the President who demands higher taxes, more regulations, less pipelines and keeps promising to " End fossil fuels"!

And lets not forget Biden blamed Putin for oil prices increasing so he believes one person can effect the price.
