"American" Oil Companies Continue Pump Price-Gouging as Oil Barrel Prices Plunge

When the barrel price of oil increases a couple of dollars- you can count on oil companies raising the pump-price of gasoline 15-cents or more.

Funny isn't it that the reverse doesn't happen...


As of this post on Monday- August 8- the price of a barrel of oil stands at around $83.50- down more than $15 per barrel in the past 10 days or so.

Yet- Metro Kansas City gasoline prices have barely moved- only down as low as $3.46 in favored areas on the Missouri side.

Stand for this crap and fill 'er up folks- or park it in protest until the oil companies respond....

HAHAHAHA

I have been staying parked as much as possible now for sometime.

But you are right and their excuse will be we are using gas that cost more than current costs are for a barrel of oil and will be a while before we see a drop.

Plus as well have to remember the jerks on wall street who trade and sell gas futures who as well cause us to pay way more than we need to so they and many other pockets as well get lined.

So as George said in his video "They own us and they have us by the balls"
