Why the spike in the price of gas at the pump?

“While investigating the death of a friend and fellow cop, Los Angeles police officer Barney Caine (George C.

Eventually, Caine must contend with oil tycoon Adam Steiffel (Marlon Brando), who clearly has his own agenda regarding the formula.”

Here are a couple of clips from the 1980 film, ” The Formula”:

“White House officials are scrambling to show Americans that they’re paying close attention to rising prices after federal data released Wednesday showed inflation rising far above expectations in October.

The consumer price index, which tracks inflation for a range of staple goods and services, rose 0.9 percent last month and 6.2 percent in the 12 months leading into October, the highest annual inflation rate since November 1990.

They are not “the Arabs” either…
