The funny thing about the high price of gas in the US and the world is that,
Wholesale gas prices are close to $3.20 per gallon, in the US anyway, in AZ after you add profit, taxes to it of
$.70-.80 cents per gallon. Gas should cost $4.00 MAX at the retail market.
I'm guessing there is Mucho price gouging going on by someone in the supply chain.
This pricing difference between wholesale and retail pricing has been this way for years.
In CA the difference is closer to $1.10 per gallon.

Adjusted for inflation the real cost of a gallon of gas from July 2008 shoots up to $5.37 in today's dollars—well above the current cost of $4.318 per gallon.

Humm?
Here is a gas price column chart from 1980 adjusted for inflation. 1980 gas was $1.22, in 2021 dollars that works out to $3.32.
I'm sure it's higher for 2022 because of 2021-2022's inflation.

I was in the oil business for 35 years. Watch the earning reports for big oil. They leave very little on the table to trickle down to retail. Even with creative accounting the profit will be hard to hide. California charges sales tax on gasoline in addition to state and fed flat rates. That's why they are always higher than we are even with our boutique fuel mandated for Maricopa county. That boutique fuel is hugely profitable for the refiners that supply Maricopa county. It also has a shitty shelf life because of the ethanol. Don't store it too long.

Your stats are the years but the 4 dollar plus gas was in July 2008….figure we make over 40% more money now and our cars are more efficient this isnt much of a hit…

I buy both gas and diesel and never had any issues. First time buying diesel I pull up to the pump and “Lleno por favor“. I jump back in the truck then look back and see a black hose filling the tank. I jump out and immediately turn it off and then after a few chuckles with the attendant find out Black hoses are diesel and green gas. I have also heard there is no ethanol in the gas which probably makes it better.

In Sonoyta on Thursday Magna was 18.49 per liter, $3.48 per gallon at 20.2-1.
Reg at Costco in Scottsdale was $3.99 today. The 3 Circle K's I went by were still at $4.69.
But prices are Slowly coming down, I figure by Oct, gas will be $3.50ish.
