Sock it To the Consumer

Posted by mcm0704 on December 18, 2008 |

I heard on the news today that one of the large oil refineries is going to cut production because the cost of oil is more than the price of gasoline, so they cannot continue to produce until the price of gasoline goes back up. Excuse me. This is the same oil refinery that six months […]
