The insider’s secret on how gasoline is priced

New York Times gets it right: High oil prices are bad for the economy.

Oil closed at $70 a barrel today. There is no good market reason for the run-up. In fact, the Department of Energy reports that demand for oil is down and that oil inventories are at a record-breaking 19-year high. The financial media (largely CNBC) has been gleefully abuzz of late about rising commodity prices - especially oil - as somehow signaling a rebound in the economy. They have suggested that high commodity prices are somehow a "green shoot" or "mustard seed" that shows the market still has potential. It's too bad they are absolutely wrong.

Average gas prices likely to exceed $3 by Thursday, June 11.

Friday June 5, 6PM - For the last 60 days gas prices have risen in San Diego by an average of nearly a penny every 12 hours. If this trend continues (and it probably will) local gas prices should top $3.00 a gallon on average by Thursday afternoon - a 58% increase since the beginning of the year.

Bob van der Valk says if gas keeps climbing he might replace his truck with a horse!
