Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

They could, but I doubt they will unless it goes up considerably. I think the federal excise tax is $.183/gallon.

Actually, I think the next war could come against our refineries.

Man, do you actually get 35+ or is that what it's rated at? I have a 2001 300M with a V6, even grannying it around I can't seem to get over 24mpg.

Why haven't domestic oil companies used some of their monster profits to fix up existing refineries, or even God forbid, open new ones? Wasn't it reported that America is running only in the 80% range with its own refineries?

If your E-Bay sales have a cascade effect on the rest of the economy, then it woud probably be a good idea.

In this hypothetical example, it actually does. By charging more for my product, there will be an increased demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, thus lowering air pollution.

Why, when you can bring in record profits every year?

I'm sure all these people wanting the oil companies to charge less also work for businesses that charge far below what they can for their goods/services and do so simply because it's the right thing to do.

They would bring in record profits whether or not people conserved or not. They charge what they want because they can and their is basically nothing that can be done about it. The basic economic principles of supply and demand don't apply to them. It's the only industry where profit margin increases dramatically even when it's costs go up. Basically, oil companies are just ****ing everyone in the ass because they can.
