Enough. This whole, blame the evil oil companies for this gas spiral. Enough. People who know better sounding like they have brains made out of butter. I’ve heard the prattling on, now time for some basic facts to sink in. Gas prices aren’t rising. The dollar is falling. Let me explain that. Oil is priced in dollars. Dollars are getting cheaper. It takes more of them to buy oil. So oil gets more expensive. Gas gets more expensive. Traders can gun that. Some can try and capitalize on that. Make bets on that. But that….is that. Finite product.
