wholesale price of gas

According to the governor of Montana, he and the governers of Wyoming and North Dakota set up a coalition and met with in-state oil producers to ramp up production of crude oil a couple weeks ago. The producers agreed. Turned out the bottleneck up there is the pipeline to the refineries.

The pipeline people offered the independent American oil producers $32 a barrel! – during a time when crude oil on the world market is over $70 a barrel.

Price-gouging is a fact. And Gov. Schweitzer has asked his Attorney General to investigate: see PDF file of memo.

(based on an interview with Gov. Brian Schweitzer of Montana, heard on the Ed Schultz radio show Thursday 4 May 2006)
