Imagine this all over the US but not because of refinery issues, but because of an oil shortage caused by WAR in the middle east! It would be short term since the monetary system would collapse soon after. Oil is the life-blood of the planet, especially in the transportation and manufacturing sector. If OIL per barrel triples in cost, the financial system would collapse in a very short period of time. Think big picture here. Costs for everything would quadruple almost overnight. Good luck getting your high blood pressure or diabetes medication in such a scenario. Even if you could afford to buy goods and services, most deliveries would stop because of gas/diesel rationing. Police departments would be crippled because of lack of fuel for there cars... ...and once the cold, desperate and hungry hoards realize this...ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE..... [/quote]
some stations have closed..
As a result, wholesale prices have jumped nearly 73 cents a gallon over the last week. Experts predict that stations are about to pass on that cost to California drivers this week, and there's nothing drivers can do about it.
According to fuel analysts, we could see a jump of 10 to 30 cents a gallon in a matter of days.
What's causing this price spike? The problem is low production blamed on several oil refinery outages due to the extreme heat and continuing problems from an oil refinery fire in Northern California this summer.
californa doom only!
