    I have noticed that every time the price of oil starts to drop, Iran is suddenly in the news again and the price of oil creeps back up.

    The price of gasoline is affected by many factors, so bare with me.
    1) The status of our currency.
    2) The status of our refineries
    3) The time of year, because of EPA regs. between the states there are about 20 different types of fuel this adds to the cost.
    4) Federal, state, and local tax add more to the cost fuel than the profits gained by the oil companies, Our enemy is not big OIL it is our GOVERNMENT.

    actually one of the biggest reasons Oil prices go up and down are the speculators buying or selling it off for profit.
