    I'm in Kuwait now and I pay about $0.78 cents a gallon. Keep in mind that this is the price after the gas has been refined...

    Take the same oil, send it to the US, refine it and put it in your car... Big difference. The US adds taxes you don't know about. Such as a tax that covers the cost of fuel used by government vehicles. Gas tax, road tax, State tax... and the list goes on.

    The actual cost of gas is about $0.13 per gallon I'm sure. But even in Kuwait, people have to make a profit.

    The price of oil has risen dramatically recently. Our gas prices rise in line with the price of oil. There is a tax on gas. In some states it is around $.85 per gallon. In states like California, where they blend gas to help with the smog, it is much higher.

    The main reason is a shortage of Refineries in the USA.

    The Oil Companies are making huge Profits but refuse to build new Refineries.

    The taxes applied are for the benefit of the government to ride in their vehicles for free. We are paying for them. Why don't they make more cars that will take the flex fuel??? They got us and they know it.
