These are just some of the reasons gas prices are quite suddenly burning up your income.

Iran is going to take over the world.

The refineries need maintenance

The speculators are doing it

We're running out of oil

We have plenty of oil

Americans are driving less, so we need to raise prices

The Chinese have millions of mopeds to fuel

There is a leak in a pipe in Moose Jaw Alaska

A rodent chewed through a line at the main pump station in Texas.

Demand is down but we are producing more however, our refineries have been and are being shut down

Prices will go to 6.75, but 3 days before the election, Obama will lower prices to 1.40 to ensure reelection

A school of endangered blowfish have been sucked into a pipe, and it takes time to get them out.

Iran has nukes

Unstable markets worldwide.

A big refinery fire

A small refinery fire

A refinery fire could possibly happen

New gas additives are being developed to make Americans even more stupid

They forgot to build a pipe

They don’t like pipes

Rich liberals want the price even higher.

Obama hates the oil industry

The oil industry hates Obama and are hoping this kills his reelection

Liberals want everyone ridding donkeys and bicycles to work as a sacrifice for the planet

We moved more armaments to the gulf because Iran is taking over the world

Wild money printing and massive deficits

Americans love high gas prices

Refinery margins are tight…They hardly make any money at all.

The masses have no idea how free market works.

It is being exported because we are making more than we use.

Demand has fallen

We need refinery upgrades and expansion

We are making more than we use so we have to sell it to the Chinese, (They have 1 billion mopeds to fuel , and need to go to work so they can send us more Communist products)

We have plenty of oil, so much so, we need to sell it abroad to keep prices low.

We have plenty of oil, so much so, we need to sell it abroad to keep prices high.

Obama has seriously pissed off the oil companies and seriously limited their profit, and this is part of his election strategy.

When the price gets high enough, President Pondscum amd his minions will try to 'socialize' the industry to provide relief.

The sad part is that many, even here, might support it.

This administration has thrown every available monkey wrench into the works of oil drilling and production, refining and distribution, and STILL has the unmitigated gall to claim credit for increases in oil production done entirely by the private sector in spite of a hostile government.

Add this reason to your list. Our trading partners need more oil and refined fuel to get products to us along with more debt for our political class to buy them with. ;-)

Have fun. Enjoy the slide.
