I'm just curious and want to know if anyone can answer this question.
I have always said that we can control the cost of gasoline in this country if we produce more oil and refine it by building more oil refineries.
However, everyone disagrees and don't want to believe that so they want to blame high gasoline prices on global supply and demand.
So, if that's the case why is California is paying over $5.00 a gallon and the rest of the country paying a little over $3.50 or more?
Oil prices have come down a few dollars over the past few months so I would think that Californias prices should have come down too.
So the question is why did the gasoline price go up in California when the price of a barrel of oil has come down?
