Gas Prices…WTF?!

Filed under: Fuel, Idiots — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 8:32 am

I’m sure most of you have had this question run through your mind several times in a month. With gas prices at an all time high I personally want to know what I’m paying for. Have you ever looked at the break down of who gets what in the price of gas per gallon? Well here you go for a gallon of Unleaded Regular….11% Taxes….6% Distribution and marketing….10% Refining and last but not least 73% Crude Oil. I guess that is why most independent fuel stations can offer a bit better price per gallon because they don’t have the Marketing expense. I don’t know. But I do know I’m tired of it. Bush is just lining his pockets. Hey “W” don’t let the door knob hit you in the ass on the way out! Texas we are returning your “Village Idiot” soon. That’s ok we will not hold it against you.

  1. Until the investers in barrels of oil and not stock get burned the price will keep going up. The trucking industry will have to be the first again to put a stop to this as they did in Europe pack their rig’s. It may get to a point where it cost you more to go to work than you earn add to it the price of food do to the price of fuel. Now I hear the goverment wants to raise yet again the tax on fuel to get their share. Labor get’s 3 or 5 percent increase in wages per year and cost of living goes up 10 percent. Fuel prices are totaly out of control and will not stop at this point until a drastic action is taken by the trucking industry, they are being hurt the most.
