If I was a gambling man, I would put all my money against this.

There's no way 87 is going to cost 6 bucks a gallon where I live. Its just a hair over 4 bucks right now.

That's a HUGE difference, Wall Street can't be that greedy to make the prices go that high? Or can they?

You guys in Southern California need better public transportation especially considering LA is the second biggest city in the country. Just sayin.

LA had the most extensive streetcar network in the world at one point. Then General Motors bought it all up and declared the personal automobile and highways the "way of the future". >_<

^That was very very poor foresight on LA's part for agreeing to that. And very very greedy of GM to do that. smh

One word why many major cities in the US don't have good public transportation.

Big oil.

All those HUGE hundred billion dollar companies and even the small tens if billions of dollar oil companies are the reason why we don't have sufficient mass transportation AND why we don't have an alternative fuel source.

We have progressed an infinite amount since the oil crises of the 70's. Since then, programs for alternate fuel get the plug pulled. People that try to do something on their own and create things on their own and start to look promising get CRUSHED by big oil. Those companies are either bought out and destroyed, or are buried by so much legal paperwork they go bankrupt and give up.

We have known for over 50/60 years (forgot the exact number) that we can run cars on hydrogen/water, ethanol/corn, alcohol, etc etc. We have also known since then our oil supply is finite, and would eventually end. Point is, we could have EASILY perfected one of those alternate fuels to be used in new cars that would run on them. But why haven't we? That's the fucking burn of it all....

The real reason seems to be those f-in hedge funds buying up oil contracts, thus betting that oil prices will go up in the future. Obviously the situation in Iran hasn't helped either.

The GOP is just coaxing their lowest common denominator supporters into believing that the Democrats are directly responsible for the price rise as those people have no clue about how gas is priced.

The Republicans are pulling strings to make Obama look bad since he was the one who said no to the Keystone pipeline. People, being the dumbasses that they are, actually think this is all Obama's fault. They think somehow that Obama is going to get on the phone and tell the oil companies "Hey guys, this is Obama, let's lower the price of oil". The GOP knows how to take advantage of people's stupidity.

Back when I took economics, gas was at $4.50 a gallon back in 08 and we discussed this in great detail in the class. Those who say that we should drill don't know how the market works. If there is a surplus, the quantity supplied is reduced to increase the price. The oil companies will just make even more money while nothing happens to the price other than it increases. Until there is a substitute on the market, oil is inelastic and there is nothing we can do except ride our bikes or use public transit. In OC there are a ton of people that I've noticed that started riding their bikes in the past few years.

OCTA was thinking about bringing back the street cars but it was quickly shot down once the recession started and gas crept back to under 1.70 a gallon. However, how can we as the most powerful nation not have a public transportation system like Canada's or Russia's where you can get anywhere in the country in under 10 hours for cheap? Oh wait, lobbyist....
