Gas prices might increase 24 cents
USAToday via Yahoo! (03.04)
Gasoline prices could rocket 24 cents a gallon the next few days, as stations across the USA scramble to keep up with big jumps in the prices of oil and wholesale gas, a veteran energy-price analyst forecast Thursday.Brutal & Horrendous. Got it. What did Brandoland point out last month? Oh yeah: Exxon Mobil Earns Record $8.42B in 4Q.
"It's going to be brutal, horrendous," says Peter Beutel, president of energy-price tracker Cameron Hanover. He has followed energy markets for nearly three decades.
Thursday, light, sweet crude oil for April delivery traded as high as $55.20 a barrel in New York before closing at $53.57.
They've softened us up with higher prices for the last 2 years and now they're lowering the boom. Get ready for it. If folks like this Peter Beutel are right it could be worse than 'brutal & horrendous' maybe it'll actuall get the people's attention.
That's right: maybe now, once folks start getting hit in the old pocketbook, they're actually start paying fucking attention to this and all the other shenanigans going on.
