Wall Street speculators driving up fuel prices


To The Editor:

Anyone that buys fuel and goes to work or anything we use that runs on fuel, you know, like farmers, trucking companies, flower shops, pizza delivery, school, town and village departments etc.

The article April 30, 2014 page A4, Courier-Observer, to expand fuel exports is typical Wall Street - looking out for fuel company profits and any government department connected to it all.

Anybody read this about how this analyst thinks price increases to consumers would benefit the economy and outweigh any harm?

As a small business owner, this will greatly affect my bottom line.

The article goes on and says the economy is better off if we can sell something to someone and bring money into the economy.

I don’t know about you, if we all paid $1 less a gallon, then we could all put money into the economy and don’t we do business with the world?

Doesn’t everything everywhere have a Made in China sticker?

What if fuel companies weren’t so greedy? Gas has gone up 20 cents in the last month and more to come?

Looking forward to more price increases for everything due to fuel cost and Wall Street speculators.
