Demand stays the same, supply drops..prices rise...end of story
if you want to be mad at anyone for gas prices be angry with china..they are using WAYYYYYY more gas than before, therefore...demand is rising, supply is dropping prises are skyrocketting
When i was reffering to the 'them' i meant the gas companies. Im aware the whole reason this shit is happening is because theres a new demand for oil that simply wasnt there before - china, but honestly alot of it is hype and they are raising the prices for no reason other than people are stupid, and they connect the iraqi war and hurricanes with gas prices... they can raise the prices because people will pay them.
I must have heard that shit about the hurricane raising prices 20 times on the radio this week before katrina hit, im sure it was all over the news too, say something enough times and people start to beleive it.
