I can't get it - why is the price of gas going up again? The oil comanies are making money hand over fist. Do you get it?

The Increasing Price of Gas

The price of gas is going up,
I just can't understand.
How the oil companies,
Can deal this pricey hand.

Two refineries have closed,
So many jobs were lost.
Who is running the companies,
And do they know the cost?

The towns along the Delaware,
Are suffering from these closings,
I wish the refineries would stop,
And re-think their hordings.

The pizza and the barber shops,
Have lost their customers.
The small businesses were hit,
From cafes to dog breeders.

The refineries are gone,
And many unemployed.
What will happen to the men,
The refineries employed.

Christine there are so many reasons and it is not just because of company greed either. I do not see us getting a break. If we will all recall, then candidate Obama said he wanted to see 4.00 gas and that the American people should expect it, I guess he did make this one promise come about, or at least we are so darn close to his 4 dollar threshold he feels us Americans should be paying. Sad, most folks that 'have' to drive, pay this cost, no matter if they make minimum wage or 200,000 a year. Thank you for sharing.:)
