Makes you wonder..... Gas prices have been climbing through the roof but if you look at the price of a quart of oil it hasn't changed a whole lot in the last few years.

Makes ya wonder doesn't it?

Quart of oil has been about $1.75 for as long back as I can remember.

Gas here today is $3.069 for 87 octane, $3.119 for 89 octane and $3.299 for 91 octane.

And they are saying $4.00 is most likely going to happen.

On top of all this why don't the jar heads do away with the 9/10 B******t.

Be glad it isn't water. A bottle (1 pint) of water at most places cost $1. 8 pints make a gallon, if our bikes ran on bottled water, it would cost $8.00 per gallon. Of course tap water would be cheaper, but it wouldn't run as well.:D

I have often wondered that myself.

Why does gas prices jump around so much but oil prices stay the same?

Can't see that oil prices have stayed the same, I can clearly remember when oil was in the round metal ended paper cans and cost less than $0.50. A quart of oil used to cost nearly the same as a gallon of gas. I think the big difference is that there isn't as much taxation on the quart of oil.
