....and why is the cost of a barrel of oil going up

Because the investors are driving it up

....and why are the investors driving it up

Because we are still driving and paying the pRICE.

We have more oil than we know what to do with right now. Alberta is booming

It'* a supply and demand commodity. As long as the driving public demands, we will pay the price.

They are terrorizing us with prices that then causes someone to start a thread about it and terrorize us even worse by reminding us how high the prices have gone.

could be. I'm thinking that since it'* been near or above 90 for the past few weeks here that has something to do with it. I've been running 87 octane for about a month now.. I put about $25 worth of 93 octane in today to see if the MPG goes up. It has so far. I'll see in a week'* time though. I think the hot weather is causing KR with the 87 octane gas I was running. If I get a lot better economy with the 93 I'll know why.

Whats strange for me is ive been getting better milage with 89 instead of 93 octane from the same suppliers. And this is after all the mods and tune-ups I did. This has been going on for a while.

89 Octane has more power potential then 93. There'* no reason to run a higher grade of gas then one can safetly get away with using with no kr.
