Refineries are cutting back capacity due to lower demand. That lowers the supply of gasoline to the consumers. Crude oil producers are propping up economies of entire nations, they can't stop producing because no matter what the price, a barrel not pumped and sold is a barrel's worth of cash not going into their coffers, so the price of crude is headed down. So right now, it's nice to be a refiner. Crude is cheap, gas is high, and where they make their money is on the spread, not on the price of gas or crude. Since those are the people who pay me, as my friend Punjabi would say, heh heh heh.....

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
