Sioux City Journal: How about an investigation?

IDA GROVE, Iowa — According to the Energy Information Administration, in 2004 we paid 33 cents in refinery costs and profit for a gallon of gas, in 2005, 43 cents, in 2007, it is 80 cents. This is just the refining cost and profit, separate from crude oil cost, and distribution costs. Apparently the oil companies have figured out that by restricting supply with “refinery outages” they can make a lot more money. Is anybody investigating this? — Randy Miller
