If you think that gas prices are too high, good news is on the way. Gas will be coming down in the furture. Here is how it will work. The high prices will first affect the people that barely make it now. As gas goes up, so will food and just about everything else that we buy. People will not be driving to Taco Bell for dinner as much. That will hurt Taco Bell. Wal Mart will suffer due to lose of business. People will loose jobs because they can't afford to buy gas to go to work. The refineries are producing gas at a good rate and I have yet to pull up to a pump and there be no gas. There is no shortage (I work in the business). When people can't afford to buy gas. There will be less cars needing gas. It will come down to the gas stations sitting there with full tanks. Full tanks means no truck are delivering gas. No trucks delivering gas means the refineries tanks will fill up. Refineries tanks are full, means super tankers are full and no place to unload. With everything full, the oil field will shut down. The price of gas will be less than a gallon of water. The down side is that we will be back in the horse and buggy age when gas does come down. As we get our things back in order and start to use gas again. We will have to start up the refineries again and that will mean the oil field will have to start again. That is the tricky part. You just can't start up the oil fields and refineries, like a car. Just don't work that way. It takes people with experience to do that. Those people will be long gone. For those of you that can ride this out, it will get better. You can beleive what you see on the news, but there is no shortage of oil. In fact some of our major oil companies have oil producing platforms in the Gulf of Mexico shut down and not producing. What most don't see is that it only cost about $40 per barrel to produce oil in the Gulf. We do not get all of our oil from other countries. The record profits are from the oil compaines producing oil for $40 per barrel and selling the gas at $135 per barrel prices. Oil companies do have to buy oil from other countries to make up what we don't produce. That is true. We have no choice to but to pay what the market says for that oil. If we don't want it, they will sell it to China or someone else for that price and then we are out that tanker of oil. There is a supply and demand issue, but not what FOX is telling you. Our demand has not risen 100% in the last 7 years, like gas has. Going green is a good thing and we do need to move forward. The technology just not there for that yet. It is coming, but not here yet. Alternative fuel is a good thing, but you can't just snap your fingers and it appear. Producing Bio Diesel and Ethanol for $6 a gallon is not helping us out at all. Just a few things to ponder on.
