Hurricane History

Just a little brutal reminder to the fools and general buttheads that politicized and racialized the tragedy helping to deepen divisions in this country with all the grace and class of our current president.

Yeah...we were all enjoying the $4.50 to $6.00/gallon some regions saw in 2011 during the depths of the deplorable Obama administration. Especially those tanker drivers who lost their lives during the gasoline hijackings during that period. They were having the time of their lives, don'cha know?

I'm not going to look up the exact dates but under Bush oil went to almost $150 a barrel. Under Obama it just broke $100. Neither price was justified based upon fundamentals.

I did, and discounted it out of hand as a "contribution" by someone who 1) was unfamiliar with the R & M end of the oil business and 2) was a provincial yahoo who believes that Phoenix is the only gasoline market in the nation.

You might want to let that FirebirdCamaro guy know that when he posts things like that, he makes himself appear to be operating at a severe intellectual handicap.

"The decline at the pump is likely to continue but may slow down in a few couple weeks as President Trump made a deal with Mexico over the weekend to avoid tariffs. With gasoline inventories also growing in most areas of the country, the transition to summer gasoline complete, motorists will continue to see prices moving lower as the summer driving season gets underway. We're likely to see more good news at the pump than bad for the foreseeable future."

more winning...loving this economy

So Trump threatens the tariff with Mexico which pushes up prices and since that is been cancelled and prices will drop back to where they would be without the tariff treat you are thanking Trump? Amazing.



I paid $2.28 today in Oklahoma. But in reality gas prices went up way before the tariff talk started with Mexico. It had to do primarily with sanctions against Iran and other factors like the situation in Venezuela and OPEC cutting production.

His numbers are off.
