just 2 refineries?No, but I'm in the northwest and have 2 refineries and pipeline to Canada...
We're still hovering at about $5.30-5.50/gallon though.
My gasser is great, 14mpg and $3.85 last weekend. The Duramax getting 15mpg is putting a hurting on the profit margins.
My local propane people, Hall Propane, still do $10 Tuesday. They fill 20lb cyls for $10 (no tax) on Tuesdays. Got one filled yesterday.
Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s only one side to blame. Most of the problems faced such as this one go back to the covid tyranny where both sides robbed, terrorized, and murdered the people they pretend to represent, intentionally making everything worse. This was true in every country of the world. There is no right vs left in the political class. They work together. Now they along with the media do a good job of fooling the ignorant and gullible working class into believing so. This pits half of each country against the other half fighting for imaginary reasons while the kings take everything.
Ok, so you don't have stations running out of diesel when there is a reserve/supply "shortage". It is not technically a "shortage" like with other commodities, mostly because it's not optional. An orange juice shortage means a lot of people are not going to pay some stupid price for orange juice. With diesel there is no choice. It's a "shortage" meaning a 25 day reserve is far under the threshold of keeping prices stable. We have not had less diesel in inventory since the 1950s in terms of daily supply. As that number gets smaller the prices will continue to go up till we have like a week reserve and then there will be a literal shortage where stations can't get refilled, and then the price will go hyper inflation as many businesses are willing to take a loss on a load in order to get it where it's supposed to go.
This supply shortage will become a retail shortage if it keeps on its current trajectory. Guess who's policies are directly to blame?
Greg Abbot issued an executive order that shut down the state of Texas in the spring of 2020. Would you classify that as egregious?Give me five egregious examples of Republican Covid tyranny. Not saying the don’t exist, but in my neck of the woods it was unknown fear turned to pure blue tyranny. Blue St. Louis was shut the fuck down and across the river red St Charles was carrying the fuck on.
Saying they’re both equally at fault cheapens some of your better points and truths.
