Wait to see gasoline prices when economy picks up

The price of crude oil is down to $103.30 a barrel, the Dow Jones is below 15,000, there are not any storms shutting down oil transportation or production facilities, but the price of gas goes up 20 to 25 cents in one day. 

How do the oil companies, the oil middle man and gas station owners sleep at night?

Just compare the data on crude oil prices and gasoline prices. You will see that since May 2012 gas prices have been over $3.31 a gallon when crude oil prices were below $98 a barrel.

If this is being done now, just wait until the economy picks up!
