because the problem is not the government. You will always find someone trying to reach the power and do horrible things but the truth is that is common people always refusing to take account about responsibilities that allow monsters to commit atrocious action in their name.

they cannot do it without you turning the head to the other side to not see.

I'm sure that every good american would rater see a million more death in distant country than pay 6 dollars for DIESEL

it is undeniable that americans life standards has been made possible through imperialistic wars.

Did I heard anyone complain about that? No they are complaining NOW that the game is about to end and they cannot get the american dream for cheap.

Well think to the ones that paid for you with life.

common people is the problem.

the common people excuse, the "I was only executing orders" is so WWII...now you are grow up babies with million chances of inform yourself. million chances to opposite to the system with small everyday actions.

the problem is you are not willing to take responsibilities.

 Quoting: Conspiracy Theorist


Profit margin for whom? Farmer makes about $1.00/gallon according to the people I know who run dairies and according to most market research. Now...different farmers have different qualities of milk and some may receive a little more or a little less.

Since the average gallon of milk here is about $2.75 / gallon that leaves $1.75 per gallon. So...split that between the producer who pasteurizes/homogonizes and adds or removes products to the milk, the delivery company if separate, the wholesale marketer who buys large milk purchases and then sells to smaller stores, and to the actual stores who carry the milk for you to buy. That's not a lot of profit. I know from experience, a good milk producing cow costs about $3,500.00 a year to maintain. That doesn't include the costs it takes to run a dairy, pass inspections, pay for water, pay for cleaning, pay for milking machines, etc.

In reality...nobody's making a lot of money here. Thanks for letting me prove that. Oh...and btw, if you're dumb enough to pay $4.00 or more per gallon because of the specific retail chain you buy from...that's your own fault.
 Quoting: American Trappers, LLC


I knew you wouldn't answer honestly so I will.

Profit margin on a gallon of milk is around 39%

Profit margin on a gallon of water can be anywhere from 50% up to 200% depending on the brand you buy.

Profit margin on a gallon of regular gasoline is around 7%

I buy gas from Kroger and with current prices and my discount its $2.85/gallon.

Diesel SHOULD be cheaper. It is less refined than Gasoline.

You can take crude oil... heat it and Diesel will "come out" of the sludge all on it's own. Watch the truckers who keep this nation in motion stop dead in their tracks.

I know supply and demand... but no deliveries will make fuel even more expensive.

No word yet... from any media... but $6.00/ Gallon for Diesel means truckers will have to pay extra money for the privilege of delivering fuel and good. As in they will actually pay out of pocket for each mile versus make money for each mile.

Also, understand that loads often have pre-negotiated pricing. Added fuel costs aren't figured in that price.

Diesel jumped .10 cents here overnight. No real reason given just because they can. Didn't oil go down to $90 a barrel? Something has got to give. Everything has gone up but my pay. I haven't had an increase in 3 years. I couldn't imagine being in Cali. This whole gas crisis out there makes me feel for those Mom & Pop shops who are going to be losing their businesses and savings. The little guy is being squeezed out.

Re: DOOM- ON!!! DIESEL OFFICIALLY HIT $6.00 in Cali... Watch nation come to screeching halt!
Why don’t you people start reading. There is a series of refinery problems due to fire damage, limited supply, retooling form Summer to Winter blends etc. The problems should be resolved shortly but Kalifornia refuses to allow more refineries in the State, mandate ridiculous “blend” requirements (or they could just ship from other refineries), etc. When you walk a knifes edge on the supply / demand game sometimes you are going to get burned.

It stuns me that no one seems to understand where the energy they rely on for daily existence comes from or how it is produced/refined. Instead they sit around and bitch about its someone else’s fault. It’s not. Just look in the fucking mirror for the problem.

BTW diesel is high this time of year due to retooling for the production of winter heating oil.

“It's a combination of low inventories and multiple California refinery problems,"
“The problem is likely a short-term one according to some as the temporary shutdown of local refineries (after Chevron's Richmond refinery fire) and maintenance is completed…”

 Quoting: Geochemist 24490123



Brilliant post, must say. Good point about the heating oil. Forgot the winter bump. Honestly if the prices do skyrocket, it'll be because people will be panicking over what is essentially nothing earth ending. The one thing I do think should be pointed out is that the major oil companies have also been divesting their refineries within the US so it's not all Cali's own fault. I think it was ConocoPhillips that announced that they were going to begin divesting their refineries in 2010 to focus on upstream and restructuring the rest in a second new company. They weren't the only one selling and spinning off these type of assets if I recall correctly. It was a theme song in the 10ks for oil in 2009-10. Also, BP was leaving California entirely but to focus on refining crude relating to Alberta Tar Sands. The knife's edge is a convenient line to run on in term's of profitability.

And to be fair, last time I was down in Bakersfield, the smog was something fierce. Brown air IS really nasty.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1275523


WRONG!!

In days of OLD you were correct ... but today with the new Clear Air requirements for Diesel it is MORE expensive to refine than gasoline once one starts including in the cost of Diesel the HUGE capital costs that had to be spent to literally REBUILD every refinery in the US to make the Ultra Low Sulfer Diesel.

Since the new Clean Air standards went into affect about 5 years ago Diesel virtually ALWAYS costs more than gasoline.

In my business we use Diesel quite a bit and in days of old, before the new air quality standards went into effect and refiners had to be rebuilt, the standard was that it generally cost 15% less than gasoline, sometimes as much as 25% ... AND had 15% more energy in it than an equivalent gallon of gasoline.

Today Diesel generally runs 15% MORE than gasoline which is almost an exact offset to the additional energy packed into a gallon of diesel over gasoline (and sometimes can run 20% more if gasoline is in a declining market, or if there are regional refinery problems)

Brilliant post, must say. Good point about the heating oil. Forgot the winter bump. Honestly if the prices do skyrocket, it'll be because people will be panicking over what is essentially nothing earth ending. The one thing I do think should be pointed out is that the major oil companies have also been divesting their refineries within the US so it's not all Cali's own fault. I think it was ConocoPhillips that announced that they were going to begin divesting their refineries in 2010 to focus on upstream and restructuring the rest in a second new company. They weren't the only one selling and spinning off these type of assets if I recall correctly. It was a theme song in the 10ks for oil in 2009-10. Also, BP was leaving California entirely but to focus on refining crude relating to Alberta Tar Sands. The knife's edge is a convenient line to run on in term's of profitability.

And to be fair, last time I was down in Bakersfield, the smog was something fierce. Brown air IS really nasty.

Nothing and I mean NOTHING you have mentioned can account for the sudden increase. Using the premise that people suddenly freak out and start filling up garbage cans to hoard fuel... The result SHOULD be... a sudden shortage. Prices going up should be days behind.

And current OIL PRICES have NOTHING to do with current gas prices... (using the laws of supply and demand) It's the only business I can think of where the price can go up to "adjust" for a possible spike months ahead.

Re: DOOM- ON!!! DIESEL OFFICIALLY HIT $6.00 in Cali... Watch nation come to screeching halt!
I remember when I could fill up my Volkswagon beetle for $3.50. And I would drive off of that all week. But of course, this was in 1973!! And when the so called oil shortage happen then; I knew that it was all a farce. I knew that we had plenty of oil in the ground. And then, it took about $10 to fill my tank up. And then I got another car; and it took more than that. And I had people telling me that lived in Houston, Texas that their tanker ships were almost sinking in their bay, because it so overloaded with oil. Those ships were so stuffed, that they almost sank. But this is what you get when you are controlled and ruled by Satans International bankers/Illuminuti/Oil Barons. They lie and deceive and kill and murder; as their wars have cost 100's of millions of lives during the 20th century!!

I could probably hit oil right outside in my backyard. Like water, crude oil is extremely plentiful and everywhere. It is not a fossil fuel. It is made from the pressure of rocks and minerals in the earth and it is extremely abundant. But the oil barons want us to believe that it is scarce. And this is a great big lie and deception; to keep its prices, sky high!!

But dont' worry!! The Great and the Almighty God of Heaven will have them all spitting out fire and brimstone, as they will be hollering and screaming their heads off in the worst ways imaginable!! And God created the human soul and spirit to never die or be destroyed. But it will live either in heaven or in hell, forever and ever and ever!!
