But you can thank Bush and the Republican oil money for keeping the price of gas high.

Explain how Busn  and the Republicans made Chicago and IL the brokest of states despite  many of the highest taxes in the country.

Blame can be spread around in many areas but the big run up has been
emerging markets in Asia.  China consumes a lot more oil over the past
few years than ever before.  You can also blame regulators for letting
hedge funds have huge spec limits so they can continue to buy and
hold driving up crude oil prices.  Last time crude oil prices this high
trading around 150.00 a barrel, the recession hit Dow tanks to under
7,000, crude oil traded down to 33 dollars, as markets forced out longs.
You can also blame Inflation.  So pick your poison not always about
politics it's the way of the market and flow of money into it.  More and
more money has flow into commodities over past 10 years than ever
before they buy length against the dollar.

Oil is trading at around $100.00 a barrel right now.....And the average price for gas is about $4.00 nationwide......When gas topped out at an average of $4.25 a gallon......Oil was trading at $150.00 a barrel......If oil is 2/3 of what it was then......Why isn't gas 2/3 of what it was? or about $2.85 a gallon......I know oil has routinely traded around the $100.00 a barrel mark and gas was never $4.00 a gallon

Not sure what you mean by routinely it wasn't till 2008 oil busted over 100.00
a barrel on it's way to it's high of near or around 150.  Then came the market
crash of 2009 it wasn't until Jan of 2011 that crude traded above 100.00 again.
There are two things to remember crude is tied into the dollar and the dollar has
lost 30% of it's value of the years as the Government prints more money.
Second and more recently over last few years China has become the biggest
importer of oil.  So my guess to your answer is CHINA usage and the price of the
dollar maybe lower today than it was in 08.

VERY true statement. When the first outrage took place, CNBC analysts stated that 80$ a barrell oil SHOULD (mind you) translate to $1.80 gasoline....Right? Well, the speculators should NOT be allowed to play witht he price of oil because it's immediate effect on everything, especially food prices as transportation costs are most of what food prices derive from. but let's all face it...the idea of a "free market" has to be on the short list of all things ridiculous sold to an uneducated American public...."free markets" would imply a level playing field and let the price be what it will be.....if you honestly believe that, you shouldnt participate in these types of discussions. Harness fan DE  great post!!!!

It's not just the speculator our Government has devalued the dollar by
30% over the years so add $30 to the price of crude over time.  Index
funds use a basket of 20 commodities that are always a long hedge to
the dollar.  Crude oil is the heaviest weight in that basket if you don't
like the way speculators effect the price call the SEC or CFTC and have
them regulate more and lower there spec. positions.  So your telling me
it's crude oil that has caused soybeans to trade at 14 dollars normally
a $5-6 commodity, how about 6.40 corn, normally a 2.40 commodity,
it's the price of our dollar and the big consumption of China as it grows
and grows that has caused higher prices.  Investors all over the world
have more money to invest in they have moved into future markets
over time because of the big gains year over year compared to
Equity markets, t-bills, money markets are near zero, housing markets
have collapsed, there are very few spots to make money.  Another
commodity metals, gold, silver, platinum, and copper have made huge
gains past couple years.  THE UNDERLYING FACTOR IS THE DOLLAR AND
GROWING U.S. DEFICIT OF 4 TRILLION DOLLARS.

Just trying to answer a question or two Mel that's all do you think
I like paying higher cost for everything.  How do you explain higher
education cost to send a kid to College, how about the higher price
of homes over past couple decades, along with car prices, Inflation
plays a big part it's hard to say what leads to the price of goods.
I come on these forums for just that having a discussion.  Hopefully
lending to a answer or two. I make a living trading corn and beans
at the exchange and I seen a lot of goofy stuff over the years one
thing that always sticks out in a directional move is you can't fight
the money flow it is to big.

Illinois...Im not worried about beans or corn or precious metals. The price of oil is set by some "world" market which is 100% BS. Am I truly supposed to believe that in 2008, the price of oil went up to 142, then dropped without cause to 40? PUH-LEASE!!!!  Here's my point, "free markets"a rent free at all. As for your corn and beans, farmer's im sure love the propped up prices as they are on the short list of the biggest welfare queens the world has ever seen. Bio-diesel and ethanol are bound to be a part of that....although they magically set their price as to what gasoline is....Interesting, isnt it?
