Let me add to this...
iirc, light crude is trading around 60-65 a barrel right now. The gas at the pumps was purchased months ago. There is supposed to be a lag between oil prices and gas prices, suddenly there isnt?
Additionally, if you were to play the ratio game, it doesnt seem like the percent change in oil has matched the almost 33% drop in prices at the pump.
What in the hell is going on?
edit: btw, this election talk is fucking insane. Government isnt that cool, but I dont rule out collusion between the oil companies to effect the election, if you REALLY want to talk conspiracies...
if i recall, gasoline is a commodity, you pay what it would cost to replace it, not what it cost to produce.
edit> it seems i was beaten. that's what i get for going out and doing things.
