    Keep in mind that $35- barrol of oil is a cold sharp knife slowly thrusted into the ribs of state run oil companies; this includes Iran and Venezuela among others. Because of the power struggles in Iraq, Saudi Arabia is not very friendly to Iran

    more food for thought...;)

    Good question..... I check several sites during the day but my favorite is: www.bloomberg.com/energy
    It gives you the most up-to-date information.

    Here is a breakdown for the cost of gas.
    roughly 53 cents on average for the gallon are set for Taxes on the gasoline. http://www.zcar.com/forums/read/4/1999975 shows a map of each state charge for taxes. You can see by the map that some of the more democratic states tax heavily to pay for their government programs. That's just an opinion.

    Its worse for Diesel as most states increase taxes to pay for the "damages" trucks cause to the roadways. Diesel price increases also because of the increase in cost to refine the low sulfur Diesel.
