Subject: The Oil Companies Are Still Screwing You
Last July 2008, a barrel of oil was selling for a record $147. The
price at the pump was almost $4.00 per gallon. Today, it closed at $36
a barrel and I paid 1.55 per gallon. Let's do the math here.

The price per barrel today at $36 is less than a quarter of the record
July price of $147. If we were paying 4.00 in July shouldn't we be
paying a dollar a gallon?

Very little oil made it through American refineries at 140 a bbl. It was
at that price for so short a time. Only players that were short on stock
paid spot prices. The spot market was driven by 2 things, the Chinese
were filling up their strategic reserve (5 x the size of ours) and the
banks were playing the market in hopes of getting some mortgage money back.

I own oil royalties and work as a consultant in the business and the most
i ever saw on a check was 120ish.

OK shit-for-brains. At least I got my GED.
You spent so much time trying studying your fourth grade teacher's
crotch that you never let him teach you how to add so how the hell
could you learn anything about economics

But maybe there's still hope for you.

Cost to get 1 gallon of gas to the pump (I'll pretend that you can
understand these are not real numbers, just examples)

Cost of the oil 4.00 1.00
Refinery Cost 4.00 4.00
Rent a tanker 1.00 1.00
Gas for the tanker 1.00 .25 (not really but this is
what it would be if you were right)

Total cost 10.00 6.25

Why not do this simple?
Point out the taxes on gas are the same no matter the price, and there's
about a 40 cent a gallon total tax on it?

Many companies are holding on to the oil and keeping it off the
market.

With storage tanks filling up onshore, private and national oil
companies, refiners and trading companies are storing another 80
million barrels aboard 35 supertankers and a handful of smaller
tankers, the most in 20 years, according to Frontline Ltd., the
world=92s largest owner of supertankers.

You must be a dumb fuckin' high school dropout!! The refining costs
are the same whether the barrel of oil cost $147 or $36. Diesel costs
have dropped substantially which means delivering the fuel to gas
stations around the country costs less.

RGP has a usnenet reputation as having the most brilliant minds on the

Did you consider all the taxes that get added to each gallon?

the government should reward the oil speculators with a bazillion dollars
each. we can pay them from a windfall profits tax we collect from the
guys who made out like bandits shorting our stock market last year.

In a word.......NO

Just as with any other product, there are costs associated with
turning oil into gas that are not related to the cost of the raw
materials. Transportation costs, refinery costs, etc.
