GAS PRICES

We were talking about gas prices today. ( it's $2.55 a gallon in our area )
TV news claims they've gone up by 73 cents this year.
I remember dollar-a-gallon gas.
Pretty sure it was about 2 years ago.
Anyone with a good memory here ? When was gas a buck-a-gallon ?
How did it get to this price ? It wasn't a gradual nickle-a-week raise......

Basically, demand has caught up with supply. No new refineries built for decades, so when an old one breaks down supply is interrupted. And the billions of dollars worth of goods we buy from China each year is providing them with funds to build more factories. Now they are buying oil like there is no tomorrow.

And the oil companies report enough profit in one quarter to build a two new refineries
