Prepare for HIGHER Gasoline Prices

On Sunday, workers at two BP oil refineries in Ohio and Indiana walked out as part of a nationwide oil worker strike being led by the United Steelworkers Union. Citing unfair labor practices and dangerous conditions, including leaks and explosions, the approximately 1,440 workers will join nearly 4,000 that began striking a week ago on February 1.

USW represents about 30,000 workers at more than 200 refineries, terminals, and pipelines across the country. A full USW strike could disrupt as much as 64 percent of U.S. fuel output, according to Bloomberg.



  1. These guys were all about to get laid off anyways because of the low oil prices. They probably figured if they went on strike, the Labor Relations Bureau would force the oil companies to continue paying the them.

  2. Fire every one of the bastards and hire new non-union employees. Screw 'em.

  3. I knew it was too good to last and to top it off governments will still try to raise gas taxes.

  4. Ahhh! The contribution of Unions to our society... A temper tantrum like that from a 6 year old.
