Then the oil companies.

This is what one barrel makes.
WHAT A BARREL OF CRUDE OIL MAKES


Quote:
Product Gallons per barrel

gasoline----------------------------------------------------------- 19.5
distillate fuel oil
(Includes both home heating oil and diesel fuel) ----------------------------------------9.2
kerosene-type jet fuel ----------------------------------------------4.1

residual fuel oil------------------------------------------------------2.3
(Heavy oils used as fuels in industry, marine transportation and for electric power generation)

liquefied refinery gasses --------------------------------------------1.9

still gas------------------------------------------------------------ 1.9

coke-------------------------------------------------------------- 1.8

asphalt and road oil------------------------------------------------ 1.3

petrochemical feedstocks ------------------------------------------1.2

lubricants --------------------------------------------------------- 0.5

kerosene---------------------------------------------------------- 0.2

other------------------------------------------------------------- 0.3

Figures are based on 1995 average yields for U.S. refineries. One barrel contains 42 gallons of crude oil. The total volume of products made is 2.2 gallons greater than the original 42 gallons of crude oil. This represents "processing gain."
From what I have Googled, the pre-invasion Iraqi production of oil was ~2.5 million barrels per day. It is now at ~2.6 million barrels per day, and is now expected to rise perhaps another 13%, causing Saudi Arabia to lower their prices.

Since Iraqi production is now slightly more than before the war, which was reportedly the reason for the price increases at the pump, it makes me wonder if our pump prices will ever go down?

That would be nice. But it never seems to happen - at least no for any longer period of time.

That's right Gary, I guess we can count in Iowa at least to 250 I live in western Iowa and we have three casinos in town and I know they know how to count.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
