Asked in Gas Prices
Why have the gas prices have gone up so much lately?
America's supply from other countries is now less than 5%. Gas prices have gone up because the amount is low and the demand is high. Also, since the gas prices have gone up, so has everything else. Food, electronics, electricity bills, etc. The high price on gas affects everything. I think America has to get off oil, and find some other resource to power our things. If we don't, we might find gas prices at over $5.00 per gallon. And it's just becoming more expensive to find oil and gas, so again, that affects the price of the gas. High demand, low amount. That's what is causing the high gas prices.

How much do they pay for gasoline in Russia?
Asked in Economics, Barack Obama, Gas Prices
Did Obama fail to lower gas prices?
No. It is not up to the president to lower gas prices. Gas prices are the result of global factors, including world-wide supply and demand, natural disasters that caused refineries to close, as well as speculation by people who are trying to force prices up so that they can make more money on gas and oil-related stocks. A president's policies may have some effect on gas prices, but it is not the case that one person can control those prices. That said, when President Bush was in office and gas prices were high, people wanted to blame him for it; now that Mr. Obama is in office, we see the same tendency. Meanwhile, if you look at statistics from the past several decades, you will see that gas prices continue to fluctuate-- they rise and fall, and a variety of factors influence how high or how low the prices are.

Asked in Business & Finance, Oil and Oil Filters, Investing and Financial Markets, Mining, Fossil Fuels
Are oil and gas drilling investments good?
No. Not in this environment with the enormous inventories of oil and natural gas we have, and our weak economy. Prices are very volatile, and right now they are relatively high for the inventory we have on hand. And with a working interest, which is probably what you would have, all the expenses have to be paid before you get paid. If its a royalty interest it would be a better idea.
