    In theory it should not effect gas prices at all. All of our fuel is distilled from imported crude ALL of our crude (as in the US) gets stored as crude in underground salt caverns in the National Oil Reserve. Having said that the oil companies will still use it to their advantage to rape us with no astroglide even though there is no real impact:doah: .

    Edit: Disregard what I wrote I re-read it and noticed it is a BP pipeline so yes they will prolly raise gas prives.

    prolly. Gas won't have to increase much more in price and shale oil will be worth getting. We got more oil in shale form than the entire middle east does in liquid form. If anyone wants to be a multi-billionaire, just come up with an inexpensive way to extract it and you can have bill gates mowing your lawn.

    Production burps don't help....but isn't the big picture. Refining capacity and EPA regulated additives are raising the prices more and more nowadays.

    I think what BRB means is that in any good capitalist government demand always drives the prices regardless of supply.:D

    That and the fact that reserves are very high so refining is currently capacity a much larger problem than the price of crude. It is true that if we continue to burn it like there is no tomorrow and pay the prices, they will raise the prices.

    And I can't wait until we get some official word at work..............................

    I would imagine that along with the rise in prices, our patrolling will be severely curtailed.................................:( :( :(

    True...but lack of supply for the new additives and lack of any room in refining capacity for increased demand....sure don't help the supply side. If we didn't have the lack of refining and lack of new additives, technically...demand wouldn't even be a problem.
