Ask a simple question and try to get a simple answer?
“It is no one’s fault, it is the fault of that darn Barrow, it goes up gas, diesel and oil goes up.”
“If it goes down some times gas, diesel and oil goes down, that’s the way it has been for over 50 years why change now?”
Our experts should not still be getting away with vague or non-existence answers like,
“Gas prices increased due to a series of refinery issues in the Midwest and a rise in crude oil prices,”
What refinery issues?
What crude oil prices?
“prices normally increase between 30 and 50 cents per gallon in the spring and then drop again in the fall.”
Why should gas prices rise and fall in the spring and the fall?
Why should prices rise because people are duped into doing a little traveling or just staying around home?
Stupid answers to honest questioning!
The months of dropping gas prices are coming to an end.
Prices rose more than a dime last week across Florida, and may keep going up.
“Gas prices increased due to a series of refinery issues in the Midwest and a rise in crude oil prices,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman for The Auto Club Group. “Gasoline and oil prices quickly rose mid-week, but stabilized through the weekend.”
Jenkins said prices normally increase between 30 and 50 cents per gallon in the spring and then drop again in the fall.
Gas prices rise in South Florida for first time in 4 months
Last week, the national average rose by 12 cents to $2.175. The state average increased by 13 cents, averaging $2.202 per gallon.
But even though the price of oil rose by $3.45 over the last week, it is still 52 percent cheaper than the highest price in 2014.
“Global oil prices should continue to register multi-year lows with supply outpacing demand, and barring any events that cause the global price to increase substantially, AAA expects that the U.S. average will remain below $3 per gallon throughout 2015,” Jenkins said. “However, the next several months are likely to be very volatile for oil and gas prices as demand increases and refineries enter maintenance season.”
Gas price increase expected to continue but remain modest
