    Gas prices dropping fast !!

    You (and I) wish!

    ===========================================

    NEW YORK, May 3 (Reuters) - Oil prices slumped below $50 on Tuesday amid concerns over rising crude inventories in the United States, the world's largest energy consumer, and a softening Western economy.

    U.S. light crude settled down $1.42, or nearly 3 percent, to $49.50 a barrel, eclipsing a gain of $1.20 on Monday.

    Prices are 15 percent below the record high $58.28 struck April 4.

    ============================================



    WHERE IS THE SAME "DECREASE " IN PRICES WHEN THE PRICE OF A BARREL GOES DOWN ???

    We IMMEDIATLY see, at ANY RISE in the price of a barrel of oil, almost "INSTANTEOUSLY", an INCREASE in the gas prices at the pumps.

    Let's see what the NEW RECORD IN QUARTERLY PROFITS are in the next quarter, for the OIL Companies !!

    What a ****ing "perfectly legal" SCAM on a economic, trend setting commodity, that has such a DRASTIC effect on ALL other ECONOMIC PRICES !!!

    Even if the gas prices did drop, by some "miracle", we'd NEVER see any other prices drop.

    Anyone remember the 1st sugar shortage back in the early 70's. That, to me, seemed when the entire TREND started. ONCE A PRICE WENT UP, THEY NEVER, EVER, CAME BACK DOWN . After that, we had the gas crunch, coffee shortage, orange shortage, etc. All prices started going UP, and UP, and they all started STAYING there.

    errks me

    What errks me the most is this...everyday I watch the news and world news and everyday they say the national gas prices are droppping...If believed what they were telling me everyday our gar prices would have dropped to $1.50 a gallon by now.


    I wish the news people stop saying its dropping because they haven't came to WNY and watch how our gas prices change every few hours. I sat at a gas station for a few hours and watched how many times the prices changed...they changes 4 times in three hours adding up to 4 cent change on the price listings.....All I know, I feel the high gas prices and its starting to give me ideas where by next year I wont beable to afford my car and I'm still paying for it...slap me for buying a spots car...right up side my head....crack'....

    You sat at a gas station for 3 hours waiting for the prices to change? That takes some serious stamina. Look out Ron Jeremy!
