Surprise!  Gasoline Prices in the US are Rigged

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

You don’t have to be a genius to know that gasoline costs around $3.50 per gallon in the US.  What most Americans don’t know is that the only thing keeping the price above $2.00 is the fact that our oil companies are exporting our gasoline at bargain basement prices to their own foreign subsidiaries subsidized by high American prices.
You see, gasoline usage, around the world, has fallen dramatically.
Gas is a liquid.  Imagine a glass of water.  You fill it to the top, you add more, it overflows.
Same with gasoline.  Tank farms fill up, the rusty pickup truck in the driveway has gas in it, the BP station is full to capacity, everything that can hold gasoline except for your bath tub is filled to capacity.  Normally, this would crash prices.
Instead, America exports gas, dirt cheap and in huge volume, 480,000 barrels per day.  But this is an export you say, a good thing.  Is it now?
Let’s look at some facts:
  • American refineries are the most expensive in the world with the highest wages
  • The gasoline exported was made from crude oil shipped halfway around the world
  • To gain market share, America would have to compete with refineries closer to oil supplies, refineries with cheap labor, most of which are owned by governments or government controlled corporations
This means America’s exports are subsidized.  By “subsidized,” we mean “fixed” or “rigged.”  I think it is safe to say we have known this for a very long time, I don’t expect anyone to have a heart attack reading this.

I must show appreciation to you for bailing me out of this particular crisis. Just after surfing around throughout the the web and meeting tips that were not powerful, I thought my life was gone. Existing minus the approaches to the issues you've resolved as a result of the write-up is a critical case, and those which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your own ability and kindness in taking care of every item was precious. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a solution like this. It's possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this professional and sensible help. I won't think twice to recommend your web page to anybody who desires support about this subject.
