Gas price puzzle

Have more to add? News tip? Tell us

I would like someone to give a believable explanation as to why the prices of oil continue to rise, which, of course affects the price of gasoline.

Numerous articles tell us that the U.S. is now producing more crude than the Middle East. So much, in fact, that we are going to start exporting it.

However, each time someone in the Middle East hiccups or blows someone up the price goes up, with the explanation that dissension in the Middle East drives up the price again. Really?
