Rising Gas Prices

Gas PumpEUGENE, Ore. — Due to the uncertainty in Iraq, oil prices are on the rise.  That means that we will all be paying more at the pump.
AAA of Oregon says that the average price for a gallon of regular gas is now $3.93. That is the highest Oregonians have paid this year.  Should there be a dramatic turn of events, we could pass $4.00 soon.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in California is $4.10, the second highest in the country behind Hawaii.  Washington is the fourth highest at $3.94.

    Uncertainty in Iraq should not be an excuse for this. We have oil here we should be drilling for. This is BS and it’s depressing that nothing is going to change to prevent this.

    It is amazing to me that people and especially the mainstream media repeat the baloney about gas prices being linked to the current disasters in the Middle East and even Ukraine (oh yes some media outlets were claiming the Ukrainian problem was “causing rising gas prices”). We have known for years that the real problem is speculators who jump on the merest rumors as well as any new world conflict and use that as an excuse to speculate fuel prices upward. Does anyone not remember the actual tipping point into the Second Great Depression in 2008? While all the economic systems were primed to crash, critical mass was reached by gasoline prices in the US suddenly going over $4 per gallon. And Triple AAA is just as guilty of propagandizing about prices consistently under-reporting the actual at-the-pump experience of motorists who keep track – like I do. I keep my receipts. The media and Triple AAA are not telling the truth.
