This thread has strayed from anything related to economics and is almost borderline shopping and political.

That's no fun!
I'm sure you have some personal wishes too, my friend.
Irving Oil is structured to avoid those nasty duties, I assure you. And as I said, the lower the price of crude, the lower the transportation costs.......n'est ce pas? At least one would think...Those big tankers and truckers burn lots of fuel.....

Sounds like you're loaded with oil stocks. Great for you. Bad for consumers. I'd just like to see people like you lose a bunch of income for a few years, so that my neighbors can have more cash. Don't take it so personally! If my neighbors took it personally when you and guys like you are making a bunch off oil, while they pay through the nose; well, that would make just as little sense. It's a game.

(As for my finances, doing great, thanks! I own oil stock, of course. And I don't even really mind spending one-tenth of my disposable income on various forms of the product. Not at all. It's a vital product that allows for many things.
No, this is more of a cross between "pet peeve" and "righteous indignation"..........Actually, I take it back; there's nothing "righteous" about wanting the worm to turn. I just do. I think it would be great to see the oil guys get personally hammered and lose half their income for a few years, so that consumers can have some extra cash in their pockets. But that's not out of any sense of justice or injustice. I guess you COULD say it's rooting for the underdogs....)
Time to sell and distribute to the elderly, underprivileged, fixed income folks. then you will be able to breath easier.

They are still jacking up the 'feedstock' story... was paying $76 for 5 Gal HD Diesel 15w-40, Now $150+ There must be a LOT of barrels in Synthetic lube oil Feedstock,

I welcome algae fuel, and hope to 'Grow-my-own'

Nothin is free. You have to process your fuel. You need to add additives chemicals etc to refine cooking oil. Los whatís your time worth. Itís cheaper for me to buy fuel when I need it then to manufacture it. Not only that if you get caught you could be looking a fines as you are not paying road tax on the fuel.
I have a buddy who used to make his own diesel from cooking oil. Good luck getting the used cooking oil. He stopped because he simply could not get the used cooking oil for free. Companies are coming out and taking it from the restaurants just like they take used oil fro shops.
I used to save my used oil and give it to a guy who did his own fro used oil. But he stopped. Not sure why. I have a neighbor who takes the used oil and dumps it in his tank at work

I agree, for the most part.
But I loathe the way that the pricing is done, in such a blatantly anti-capitalistic way.

Nah, I will need to continue to "get ahead" in any way I can, partly because of the shenanigans in the oil industry and pricing of oil/heating fuel. I want the people who are directly involved in the pricing of these products to become homeless and live on the streets. And I would gladly earn 20% less on my oil stocks if it meant an end to these people and their careers. That would feel SO good!! lol
