Call me curious. It seems that here, in the U.S., gas prices rise on any news, anywhere in the world, regardless if it's good or bad. I'm wondering if those of you in other countries experience this same dilema? For example, BP is shutting down a pipeline for repairs, and while this shutdown is relatively minor in terms of total available crude oil, it was enough to send the price over $77/barrel. Did this seemingly unrelated event have any effect in your country? What seems to drive the oil market prices and futures where you live?
