"There is tight supply worldwide, and we have got increasing demand from countries like India and China, which means that, any disruption in supply, or perceived disruption of supply, is going to cause the price of crude to go up, and that affects the price of gasoline," he said.

The president says prices are also up on increasing domestic demand, as Americans are driving more, now that the cold winter weather is ending, and because states are switching their fuel-mix to a warmer-weather blend.

"The combination of these creates higher gasoline prices, and I am concerned about higher gasoline prices. I am concerned about what it means for working families and small business, and I am also mindful that the government has the responsibility to make sure that we watch very carefully, and investigate possible price-gouging, and we will do just that," added President Bush.

第二段谈到了汽油上涨的原因1是美国人的汽车越来越多2是冬天已经结束3是因为国家正在从燃料混合型向warmer-weather blend 转变这和gasoline上涨有什么关系呢又和冬天有什么关系呢?谢谢

随着寒冷的冬天已经结束,美国人越来越多的选择开车

and because states are switching their fuel-mix to a warmer-weather blend.
由于国家正在从混合燃料向适应更温暖环境的混合燃料转变,同样也导致美国人越来越多的选择开车


now that和because都使解释Americans are driving more.
as解释prices go up

According to the President, there are two reasons for the increase in the price of gasoline.

1-    There is higher demand on gas consumption brought about by more Americans driving after the end of winter

2-    The cost of gasoline production goes up because oil companies must retool their refineries to produce a warmer-weather blend of gasoline fuel.

More Americans driving after the end of winter will lead to more demand on oil => price will go up as there is an imbalance in supply and demand at a lower price. Therefore, price will go up until there is a balance between supply and demand at a higher price.

That is only on the demand side. On the supply side, the cost of production will go up because oil companies must retool their refineries to produce a warmer-blend of fuel mix. The oil companies will pass this cost along to the consumers.

Higher demand for oil does not depend on the nature of the fuel mix. People will drive more in warm weather because it is easier to do so, and summer months are typical vacation time when people will often drive more any way.



阅读完后,可知:
句子结构是:
The president says prices are also up (1)on increasing domestic demand, as Americans are driving more, now that the cold winter weather is ending, (2)and because states are switching their fuel-mix to a warmer-weather blend.
总统说价格上涨的原因在于冬季结束美国人开车次数显然会越来越多,从而导致的国内对燃料需求的增加,另外一个原因是各州正当处于转变为生产适应温暖天气配方的燃油的时期。(注:石油公司由于需要更换设备,从而导致燃油提炼成本增加。)

注释里的内容非翻译,而为了便于读者理解。
