    first off i would like everyone to remember that hummers and tanks don't get the greatest mileage so much diesel is going right back to where it came from and that increases demand across the board. plus this happens every year about this time people are just starting to buy heating oil so the price goes up in a month it will be back down !!!! I HOPE

    Averages $3.25 here, we have also reduced the use of some of our diesel trucks where we can. It's cheaper to drive the gas trucks, regardless of the lower fuel milage!

    Note sure if the fumes are getting ya' or not. Just pony up to the 'ol boob-tube and watch one of those fancy cable channels like cnbc and they will tell ya' all about oil. And it aint the US selling to iraq, russia or china oil or processed goods.

    Heating season is on us, speculators have been bidding up raw supply on hopes of world issues and just this week the gov announced inventory was a little lower than the dreamers wanted. But, this is just recent news - last 2 months. Prior to that still no reason fuel prices went up and up.

    the reason for my comment was that my brother is in Iraq with the Army and he said whenever they need fuel, they just fillup at thier (Iraqs) gas stations for free. They dont run back to base to get fueled up although they do have fuel there as well. We are just talking about 2 different things.
