A lack of refining capacity is one of the top culprits for higher prices at the pump. Of course, never mind the number of domestic refineries and total refining capacity is at a lower level than it was in 1980. If trying to pass off record profiteering as mediocre business results doesn't work, maybe threats to gas prices will keep the public cooperative and in line!"
