Since January 2009, the Vanguard Energy Fund has gone up 41% and Dow Jones-UBS Unleaded Gasoline Subindex has increased 180%. Look at the price of a barrel of oil and compare it to a gallon of gasoline also for the last 5 years.
Have Federal Reserve policies led to the cost of a gallon of gasoline to remain fairly constant though the price of a barrel of oil has dramatically decreased? Also, gas taxes remained virtually the same.
