    Obama and his secret Muslim army of Acorn volunteers took some time out of thier gun grabbing project to make sure we all pay too much for oil.

    We never say it go below $2, I'd say the average right now is about the same as you.

    There was a perfectly timed refinery explosion/fire here in California a few weeks ago.

    The price went up .15 cents overnight and eventually rose to over $1.00 more per gallon in 3 weeks.

    It has receded .06 cents in the past week so, it's going down but, at this rate, it will never get back down to where it was before the next big thing that causes it to rise.

    P.S. there's no shortage of gasoline since we are exporting it at the highest rates since 1945.
