SAN DIEGO: Gas Prices Could Rise 20 Cents Over Weekend

A previous version of this article stated that the increase was due in part to a refinery fire at a British Petroleum refinery fire in Carson. However, the refinery had a routine maintenance following an unplanned "flaring," according to a BP representative.

Now the twinks there can bareback and claim it's because they can't afford condoms.

OMG, this is so thrilling! This might mean that people will have to pay an extra FOUR dollars when they fill their tanks this weekend! And then it will go back to normal!

It has nothing to do with the trillions the Federal Reserve has printed, and the saber rattling towards Iran!

What r4 said

R6, pointing that out will get you labeled a "freeper" here.

It is only the greed of the oil companies, not the threats against Iran, the other wars, the "monetary stimulus", the overbearing regulations against domestic drilling and refining or anything else. It is pure GREED! That is the cause of all our problems!

Just wait until summer and the US attacks Iran and gas goes to $10 a gallon.

Now THAT will be fun!

That's what you get when you allow private industries to control what should be public resources.

Something pumped out of the great depths of the earth that we all share should never have been allowed to be treated as an extreme profit making enterprise.

R9 has never lived in a communist country and seen what hell on earth her policy would unleash.

Ignorance of economics in not a crime, but commenting or legislating on it based on such ignorance should be.

Is there anyone who doesn't believe this has something to do with the $8 billion that BP now has to pay out due to the BP oil spill?

They're trying to make up for the money they lost.

Sick bastards.

Fuck Obama.

by Anonymousreply 1203/04/2012

Obama has repeatedly stated his desire to drive up the price of conventional fuels to make more expensive alternatives economically competitive.


We'll see how Americans like $5/gallon gas in November, asshole.

R13 , Please provide a link to Obama expressing these views. I do not recall him saying this.
