90.9/litre here. Paid 96.9 in central B.C. on the weekend. There were still lots of those  big RV's with bottomless tanks on the highway.

got some 2 days ago. Diesel 259.9 and gas 239.9 at one station, later I found another station with 227.9 gas, no diesel, I had already bought at the higher one and got back to work.

It costs me about $60.00 (30,000 colones) to fill up the tank here (17 gallon) so that would be about $3.50 per gallon.

More significant - it is a week and a half wage for a farm laborer.

I figure for me to drive to the finca and back costs about 2 days wages for a farm laborer.

$4.59 an imperial gallon here for regular. It jumped $0.05/litre yesterday, about $0.23/gallon. Doesn't seem to crimp anyone's style here. I still see some folks make there daily 4 trips a day (tramp and tread) to their gossip groups and town. Some people's van engines never cool off. :D

Regular gas jumped from $2.19 to $2.29 overnight!  Diesel is hanging right around $2.38.  Why is deisel suddenly so expensive?  It was always a dime or so cheaper than regular before.  Now it tends to be higher than premium  >:(

Do you think the fuel boys know I just bought a diesel truck with a 38 gallon tank :-\

Here are two links for your area gas prices: SLC ranges from $2.08 to $2.25. (No E10 here, although there is an E85 pump in Clearfield that charges $2.469, about 25¢ over regular and gives you 75% of the mileage of regular! I asked how much they sell and was told "Oh, maybe $30 a day--some days nothing." Hard to understand why anyone would buy it.)

Post by: Tom on July 08, 2005, 05:55:53 PM
I just filled up my tank with $2.10 plus tax off road diesel and filled my truck with $2.41 a gallon road fuel.

I'm madder'n a wet hen over it too.  Just to let you know how it feels to be on the abused customer side of the transaction, figure this out.

I try to spend my money where I saw.  I have a customer in Folkston who's family owns the oil company.  Beause Georgia taxes are much less than Florida's the fuel there is less as well.  Even though I only break even by doing it, I will travel to Georgia when I can to fill up.

Road fuel in Jacksonville, this morning, was $2.41.

The Shell Station in Folston, Georgia sells red fuel for $2.10, sales tax included.  Their road fuel was $2.47.
I went to my customer's families station as I had planned and the red fuel was also $2.10.  I filled up.
The road fuel was $2.47.  I said, "Billy" you are higher than Jacksonville."  

He said "yep, it keeps going up."  

I said, "But, Billy, someone is gouging you don't have the taxes that Florida does, Y'all are usually nine to twelve cents cheaper than Jacksonville".  

There was no comment.  He just added the $5.20 sales tax to my $79.80 red fuel bill.  I paid him the
$85.39 and discussed how I thought I was probably through sawing in Folkston.    

"Pass it on", he said.  "Everybody else does."

"Billy, I can't do that to my customers.  They are end users.  Every time I get into their pocket, it's me that's the bad man, not you or the fuel company.  I'd just as soon quit as to keep them digging."

He seemed rather unplussed, and I left.

Returning to Jacksonville I bought the $2.41 per gallon fuel.  My truck took $115.34 to top off the tank and i'm good for the next week.  Another kicker is that the Pump will only deliver $75.00 at a time and then turns itself off.  It's got nothing to do with gallons, just money.  Do you want more fuel?  Get out the card and prime the pump again.

Do you want to confuse a station attendant at a prepay station?   Ask them for 5 gallons. :D  

I'm thinking it's about time to park everything.

Regular was 2.09 yesterday, today it jumped to 2.20.  Diesel is 2.39 today.  I have to say thay I have not seen the prices so uniform from coast to coast that I can remember.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Jason_WI on July 08, 2005, 07:23:23 PM
E85 around here is about 1.70-1.80 a gallon. There is a station 20 miles from here selling it. Older cars that were E85 compatible were getting 75% but the newer cars are getting better. Maybe the corn prices will go up if more people use E85.

You know, the word gauging keeps coming up every where I go.  Doesn't sound to far off if you think about how much different some of the states are with their fuel taxes and yet how close they are with the actual price of fuel.  The question is who is doing the gauging?  That is how far up the ladder ,so to speak, is it taking place.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: musher on July 09, 2005, 03:13:07 PM
It amazes me how often these stations must get their tanks refilled.  Twice a day, by the looks of it!  I mean, that is the only reason they need to be raising prices, right?  Because the wholesale price of the gas went up?  Or does their supplier charge them for the gas in the underground tanks as it is being pumped, so the price for that gas down their just keeps going up and up (and down once in a blue moon) as it sits there under the ground?

  According to the local "Daily Rag", it's just speculation that is causing the increases. Right now, it's fear of the Hurricane shutting down production. >:(

  Betcha no one knows how the GOLD Market is Manipulated ???

  One Bank, holding the Gold, "LOANS" it to another, to get the price raised a few $, and then it gets sold, BUT, it never leaves the original Bank that "Holds" it.

  I had lots of inside info on this deal.  >:( >:(

Construction is taking a beating here because the gravel haulers have parked their trucks. The rates were last negotiated 10 years ago and they simply cannot afford to operate any more. Cheaper to stay in bed than get up and fire the Kenworth.

Hey Tom you should try making hay and passing on the cost. Five years ago hay was 3.00 a bale now fuel is at least 4 times higher fertilizer probably tripple and hay well it's 3.00 a bale. Something wrong with this picture.
 Gas was 2.09 about 3 days ago now it's 2.29. I don't know about fuel Guess i'll have to sighn over the farm on the next fillup  ::) :-\ :'( >:( >:( >:(
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Brucer on July 09, 2005, 09:37:19 PM
Southern BC, just north of the border.
   Regular gas $ 0.979 / litre =  US$ 3.04 / US gallon.
   Diesel $0.889 / litre = US$ 2.73 / US gallon.

37% of that is taxes from the various levels of government >:(.

In the winter diesel was about 10 cents a litre cheaper than regular gasoline -- about 30 US cents / US gallon. In the late spring it shot up to just over the price of regular gas. Now it's drifting back to where it was. I remember hearing 3 months ago that US reserves of fuel oil (i.e., diesel fuel) were high, but gas reserves were very low. However, you can break heavy hydrocarbons like diesel down to lighter ones like gasoline. Looks like the powers that be decided to create a diesel shortage to reduce the gas shortage.

Sawguy, yer in oil country -- no wonder it's so "cheap" up there  :D.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Don_Papenburg on July 10, 2005, 12:01:58 AM
In Illinois the ethanol blend gas should be cheaper than non blend . That is because of the tax rate , So if your station is charging more for the blend they are gouging you on price  . I think that you should be talking to the states attuorny general.  The E85 also has federal tax break so if it is more than regular there is gouging going on big time there.   2.34 in Strteator two days ago.

Just before I headed off to the lake Friday afternoon I got a call from a real good regular customer. We haven't done anything for them yet this season though.

They wanted to know how much prices went up on account of fuel prices.

My answer was simple, "Not one penny, but we have a new policy though, the machine arrives on site full and it's up to you to make sure it leaves the same way.".

He thought that was about the most fair way he had heard of for passing on a cost that's so hard to peg down and said he had no problem with that at all, and then thanked me for being so fair.  8)

I like treating the customer like I want to be treated.

The boys said he was so happy he followed them down the road to the gas station to fill them up Saturday afternoon and even picked up the tab for cold drinks all around.

Another (still) happy customer.  :)

Gas prices are still cheaper than they were in the late 50's.

Then they were about 1/4 of the hourly wage per gallon. Cheaper than that now, IMO.

But I still don't like the prices now, any better than I did in 1957.   :)

Went to the Murphy station at Walmart to fill up the escape vehicle, Saturday.  The sign on the road said $2.139, but the pump said $2.239.  The price of "storm gas" was going up so fast they couldn't keep up with the DanG sign.

We are down to $2.22 for regular unlead, and still going down.  :o
Although I think we will get another jump in a day or two.  ::)

I just don't understand this (please note the sarcasim in this post ;) ).
The last big jump was blamed on the hurricane and was "said" to be because they had to leave the oil rigs and suspend production at a few of the refineries along the golf coast.
Now we have another hurricane passing through the gulf, hurricane Emily and the rigs were evacuated a couple days ago, but no price hike. ???
Does the US not use that oil?
Are there no refineries in Mexico?

Larry,

According to the Energy Information Administration, part of Dept of Energy, the stocks for propane are running higher than the norm – 55.5 million barrels as of the 8 July vise 44.5 million for this time last year. 

Currently most of the knowledgeable energy people that I deal with, believe that a lot of the energy market is being pushed up by the price of crude oil.  Something called BTU parity.  Example – the price for a million BTU’s (MMBTU) of natural gas is running about $11.06 delivered in Missouri.  The price of #2 fuel oil is around $13.63 per MMBTU in the same locations- I used Fort Leonard Wood to price this out.  So the price of natural gas is being pushed up to/approach the cost of #2 fuel oil.  The same thing is happening to the price of propane.  There are about 10.93 gallons of propane per MMBTU or about $13.99 per MMBTU – based on your price of $1.28/gl.

Just my opinion, but back in January 2001, when Enron and the other energy giants found out they could raise the price of energy above the $10.00 range.  They started running amok and charging what they wanted.  Of course, it doesn’t help any that in spite of increased drilling, the production of natural gas and other gas liquids continues to falloff here in the US.  Propane is a by-product from “dirty/wet” natural gas.

Sorry to be so long winded.  But I hope I shed some light on the cost of propane issue.

Thanks for taking the time to explain it Bruce.

Guess I understand...guess it is smart business for Big Oil to make money.  Still sorta leaves a real bad taste in my mouth when I think Big Oil is going to make a windfall at the expense of the farmer.  Wet harvest and propane use goes up to dry corn but the price of corn stays the same.

Apparently its $4.12AU for a gallon of our Oz fuel and $4.50AU for diesel which then converts into US$ as about  $3.18US for unleaded and $3.47 US per gallon for diesel.

Geese this bloody @#%! has to stop, surely like any market if your customers are not willing to pay the price, then you have to lower it, these guys are just up-ing the price if they have to get out of bed, when the second hand is in the wrong side of their watch or maybe if they hear a bird call before they finish their coffee then it's up for each bird they hear. Come on we the consumer must set the price???

Just paid $2.75/ gal diesel in San Luis Obispo  socialist republic of CA.   We pay 36 cents road tax/ gal plus sales tax.  And the pol cats have split the money out of the budget for road repair and new roads and placed it in the general fund for all the other must have programs.  less than 1% of the budget went for new roads.  and we keep getting slower on the interstate.  between LA and San Diego average speed is slow to very slow.  Like 13 miles an hour as an average..  i live in the country so it doesn't affect me, but those poor people in the midst of it     Melt down is coming.  LC rich

I have friends from The Bahamas who are arriving for a visit this week.

They decided to rent a car in Miami and drive to Toronto instead of flying because with 2 adults and 4 kids, it would be cheaper than airfare.

I questioned the economy of it considering gas is around $2.40 / gal. and it's a lot of miles between here & there and back ......  ::)

When they replied that they thought gas was pretty cheap I was confused......  ???

They are paying upwards of $4.00 / gallon in the Islands.  :o

I have a patented technique I'll share, but please ask for permission prior to using it.

When approaching the gas station, adjust your radio speaker balance until you reach the pump.  Reading a newspaper works too.  While distracting yourself make sure you're paying attention to the radio and not the big signs with the big prices on them.

Once you reach the pump, stop the engine and get out.  Here's the tricky part, cover your eyes like you are watching a scarry movie and just peek through the small gaps in your fingers.  Slide the credit card in and select the furthest left brand.  If the nozle won't fit in, you're trying to put diesel into your tank.  Do Not start pumping, your gas engine will not run very well on diesel.  If this happens replace the pump handle and move on pump handle to your right and repeat.

Once the tank is full fumble around until you find your receipt.  Keep your hand overy your eyes! Once your find the receipt, quickly shove  into your billfold without looking.

Get into your vehicle, start the engine, and tell yourself, "Hmmm gas prices are pretty reasonable."

Once home, immetiately shove your receipt into the middle, or better yet the bottom, of your receipt pile.

Last I checked, gas was around $0.70 a gallon!

Knowing that Wisconsin's gas tax is the highest in the nation, it amused me that when I went to the Piggy Roast, gas in Michigan was more expensive by 5¢ to 10¢ per gallon.  Now is that called windfall profits or just flat ripping people off? ::)

How is the tax levied? Is it a percentage of the price per gallon, or is it a fixed amount per gallon?  I thought the latter, which would actually result in less tax collection if the number of gallons purchased would drop due to the higher prices.  ???
Maybe the state tax and the fed tax on gas is levied differently too. Something I should check out for WI.

Edit
I checked it out, at this site
http://www.gaspricewatch.com/usgastaxes.asp
It is a fixed price per gallon, and WI is 32.1 cents in addition to the 18.4 cents the Feds get, the way I read this thing. WI is the highest tax of any state.

Not sure how it is here in OK.  I do know several yrs ago when the price was low the state was in a a major budget problem because the price of crude oil was so low.  Now that the price is really high they have a surplus of money coming in.  Below is an adjustement for the Tax in Oklahoma.  My understanding is the higher the value of the barrell of oil (gross value) you apply the tax to that amount.  I could definitly be wrong on this.

Oklahoma

  Oklahoma Statutes title 68, section 1001(b) levies a tax of 7 percent of the gross value of the production of petroleum or other crude or mineral oil.

  Okla. Stat. teat. 68, sec. 1101 levies an additional excise tax of 0.085 percent of the gross value of each and every barrel of petroleum oil production subject to the gross production tax.

It's the same in Canada, the federal sales tax, called GST (Goods and Services Tax), is applied to fuel sales as well.

That means we pay (here in Ontario anyways, and in US $ / gallon);

Provincial   $0.463
Federal     $0.347

That's a total $0.81 in fuel tax alone, then they add another $0.038 / gallon to retire the Federal Deficit, bringing it up to $0.848 / gallon in direct taxes.

Then there is a 7% sales tax on the total sale, including the first $0.848 / gallon in taxes already in the price. That adds another $0.059 / gallon. Bringing it up to $0.907 / gallon.

Then on top of all that tax on top of tax, is the sales taxes, both Provincial & Federal, added onto the cost of the gas itself.

It totals out to $1.20 / gallon of what we pay for gas goes to taxes in one form or another.  ::)

Normally it's the Internal Revenue Service doing the fuel checks in conjunction with the DOT.  If you get caught there is a large fine.  From a couple thousand to over a million.  I can't find anything that says how it's decided. ::)  Have heard of keeping an empty bottle of Marvel Mystery oil or transmission fluid in the truck to show that you put it in the tank to clean the injectors.

One thing off topic,  According to Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa fuel fraud robs tax payers, and it's dangerous to have large amounts of fuel moving around the U.S..   A substantial amount of fuel fraud involves jet fuel.  It seems that more jet fuel is produced and imported into the U.S. than is reported being bought by the airlines.  Therefore, highway fuel tax evaders are to blame.  They are somehow buying jet fuel inplace of deisel.

Does anybody know if jet fuel is that much cheaper than diesel?  It used to be sort of high. ::)

It'll hurt for a while, but I'm sure the truckers will just raise their rates to compensate.  It will be worse on the small operators who are locked into a contract of some sort.

Here's one to get your blood circulating this morning;  My stepson works at a Pizza Hut, and part of the time he does deliveries.  He has to buy his own gas for this.  The restaurant is imposing a $1 surcharge on all deliveries to offset the fuel cost, and the customers don't seem to mind.  The restaurant is keeping HALF of the extra money, even though they have NO fuel expense themselves! >:( >:(

Most 'home grown' farmers here mow along the ditches of the road next to their fields. If they don't the alders would be over the road. There is one section of road above me that doesn't have bordering fields and the alders are almost over the road.  >:( I live on a road that dead ends in winter because of snow, but I've seen more remote roadsides that the government sends men to brush and chip the road ditches. They've never done that here in all my time.  ::) Now you could imagine what a jungle the roadside would be without someone swinging a bush hog out over the ditch. ;) There are some farmers that don't mow their ditches, but they are mostly 'outsiders'. They let burdock, dogwood and willow take over their bordering ditches.  Kind of a fashion statement. ::)  :D :D

Over the last couple of years I've seen a high attrition rate among mail and flyer delivery people. I can't see how they can make it pay driving around in minivans. Most that have survived are now driving in Toyota Echos or similar cars. Pretty soon they'll be sending the pony express.

Most flatbeders I know are having good luck raising their rates.  Us dryvan haulers have always had lower freight rates,and now they're really low comparitively speaking.  The rates don't increase.  The fuel surcharge does.  Right now most customers are paying a .15 per mile fuel surcharge.  To get us back close to where we were last year, we need another .14 per mile.  What makes it really hard are the big companies.  For instance, a few years ago, when the fuel price first jumped there was one company , starts with JB, getting their fuel subsidized by the gov.  To help freight rates.  There was no way to raise our rates at the time because alot of our customers were just going with them. >:(

I just talked to my old boss at the gas station i used to run today. He is selling his gas at cost  because he doesn't want to raise the prices .  Most  gas stations only make about 3 cents profit on a gallon of gas.

In Minnesota it is a state law that every gas station must make at least 8¢ profit per gallon. That is supposed to keep the big gas companies from running the little guys out of business. I don't know if Wisconsin has that same rule or not.  By the way, here in New Richmond, Wisconsin and also in Hudson, Wisconsin gas is $1.74  9/10 per gallon.  Across the St. Croix river in Stillwater, Minnesota gas is $1.61  9/10 per gallon.

One famer here in Oklahoma has 4000 acres of farmland he normally raised wheat on it.  Since the price of natural gas has been on the increase he cannot afford to run hi natural gas fired irragation pumps.  According to a news article this next year he is going to plant it all in sunflowers and start making bio diesel.

Here is also another interesting thought.  ::) Th gov't can spend million and millions on baling out airlines etc.  Why cant the govt invest in building some bio diesel plants instead of wasting tax dollars?

That's easy.  Follow the money and the PACs.  Airlines help pay campaign expenses and have high paid lobbyists, taxpayers don't.  I have a feeling that oil companies wouldn't be too happy about bio diesel plants, unless they own them.

299.9 here, all over town.  I saw the governor of Montana on one of the talk shows today, talking about coal gasification, which apparently is very clean.  It's costly to set up, but the new energy bill has taken care of that, so their setting up a refinery in Montana.  According to him, if the US were to go that way, we would have enough coal to totally supply our needs for fuel for 100years!   No need for oil, and it would be much cheaper.  Right now, using current technology, the cost is only $35 a barrel!  Go Montana, that's what I have to say!

Regular unleaded in Okla today average price is 2.98 a gallon.   it went up .20 a gallon yesturday and about .15 a gallon today.  Two days ago it was 2.50  :o :-X

If they open they open the oil reserves up I am curious if the prices will drop the same day they open it or if they say it will take several weeks.  I am guessing several weeks.  Should drop the same day because it goes up the same day if something happens to decrease production. 

Guess nothing like selling reserved oil that was pruchased for $20 or $25 a barrel for $70+ a barrell.

The news just reported it's up to $3.50 a gallon in MI.
They showed one place that was still $2.89 and they were REALLY backed up.

The main problem with the reserve as I've been hearing is refining capacity.
We were already pushing the limit and N.O. was a central hub for refining. Even if they release crude reserves, it still needs to be refined before we can use it.

They are calling for possible gas shortages here in MI real soon.

As I passed the gas station I usually stop at I noticed the price sign changing.

The price of gasoline went wayyyy up, from $4.35 to $5.25 a gallon, the diesel didn't change at all.

That makes the spread between gas & diesel $0.917 a gallon.  :o

The governor of the state of Georgia held a press conference this afternoon...among other things he has relaxed the EPA regulations on the refineries and the additives that they put in fuels, hopefully to be able to boost production in the weeks to come....see attached link for the report from the local news..

The station where I gas up was $3.10 for regular....yesterday it was $2.74.  When the lady asked if I wanted a receipt, I said, "You betcha, I want proof I paid $3.10 a gallon!"  Then I said, "Did you get a gas delivery yesterday or today?"  She said no.  I said, "Then why are you passing on costs of increased gasoline that you haven't even PAID yet?"  She said, "It was the company."   ::)

Roxie,
  
  It is the inventory method they use, LAST IN FIRST OUT, where by they charge the current replacement cost of that inventory, If you were the one selling it you would do the same. Envision an old hardware store. He has had those bolts/nut on the shelf for 20 years, the box says he paid $1 each you now have to pay the going price to replace them, say $2. He has paid tax annually by retaining them in his inventory and for storage (essentially). It follows that line of thinking. I am not defending the OIL CO. just providing insight.

Our entire crude oil distribution system and refineries are 35 years old. Even though the refineries have been upgraded for some production increases, no new refineries have been built or are planned to be built in the US because the EPA regulations will not allow one to be built.

Do you want one in your neighborhood?

Even the refineries in the northern part of the US are fed crude from pipelines from the gulf ports.l

I just talked to a fellow in Atlanta about some business.  He said that the prices on TV are correct.  He said many stations are empty.  Says there is an station ( discount beverage and gas ) that has marked up to $8 a gallon and is refusing to sell anything to anyone that isn't buying gas.  

I would never purchase another thing from that business and make sure no one I know did either.  I'd do my part to put them out of business for sure.

My local new comes out of Atlanta.

The pumping lines that serve all of GA are up.  One line is at 38% capacity and the other is at 27%.

They electric crews are making repairs to the pumping stations power grid and both lines say they will be 100% capacity before the weekend is out.

I read on the net that both lines go'n to the northeast also run thru Mississippi so you guys up north should get gas soon too.   Prices probably wont come down to much though. ???

On the way home today, one place had $2.99 (up from $2.65 in AM), the next station had $3.09 (up from $2.79 in AM, the next one was $3.19 and the last one was $3.39.  I topped off on Monday for $2.45 at that station.

Give them a few more days, and prices will drop.  But, watch the oil companies profit on their quaarterly reports.  Then ask yourself why congress gave them a tax break in the latest energy bill.

To make money in commodities, you should buy a gasoline put at the current level for several months out. It gives you the right to sell a contract at a set price.  If the price drops, you pull in the bucks.

90% of the commodities are traded with large traders.

I can't figure out why our gas prices jumped because crude is still under $70/barrel or there abouts and we export more oil every day than we use. There's no line-ups here and never where in the 70's. Living near a native reservation with the same car making 20 trips a day, you'de never believe there was any shortage of fuel.  ::)

Seems they kick it up a lot, and then back it down a bit, and it feels so good when it even comes down a bit. I think they have the 'shrinks' working out the plan for raising prices.  ;D ;D ;D   

I just reminisced a moment today when gas hovered around the $1 per gal price, and how it seemed so high.  I guess it would be much worse if there was a shortage and one couldn't get any from the pump.

JEFF, regular gas was down to $2.99 this morning.  First time it's been under $3.00 for quite awhile. Hope it keeps going in that direction.

Lots of driveoffs without paying.  Now most places here will only allow either credit or pay before pumping.  One local Auto Supply place says locking gas caps are selling like hotcakes, although I haven't heard of anybody complaining about gas siphoned out of their vehicles.

Earlier in September, you could put off road diesel in on road trucks.  Only catch is that you have to send in the road tax and do a bunch of other paperwork. 

It was passed to alleviate any fuel shortages.  I always thought the dye was put in at the fuel terminal, not at the refinery.  Seemed like a worthless waste of bureaucratic time.  But, then again, most of it is.   ::)

I'm not sure whether the time frame on this has expired.

BTW, Mobil-Exxon made over $7.5 billion in profit in the 2nd quarter this year.  Cost to pump crude is about $20/barrel.  Gas prices are fixed by the underlying oil company.  If you go to a Mobil station, Mobil tells the owner what to charge.

Middlemen make about 10-12 cents/gal, as do station owners.  I've always heard they made 4 cents, so that musn't be true.  Info was in an AP article last week.

Gas went up to $2.79 at the local station, but the one by the mill was at $2.69.  So, I filled up on Friday figuring that prices were going to start higher.  Went to the mill today and their gas was at $2.65.

The ONLY gas station we have in town sold today.  In the morning reg was 2.89 gal, then this afternoon, AFTER THE SALE WAS OFFICIAL we saw two signs. 

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

Regular Unleaded - $3.19 gal. 

Talk about fed up.  And YES, I stopped in and gave them a piece of my mind, especially after seeing that ALL the prices in the store went up between a dime and 50 cents.  Yesterday a 16 oz Diet Coke was $.075.  This afternoon, the same soda was marked at $1.20 :o >:( >:(  This new owner probably has no clue how fast he will fail by doing what he did today in this small town. 

Got a call tonight and the locals have already picked a new place for the morning coffee.  No longer going to be at the gas station, which was owned by a local until today.

Seem's to be easing off a bit, here.  Linda saw it for $3.10 at Flyin' J this morning, but didn't stop.  I topped it off at Walmart for $3.04, then it was down to $3.08 at Flyin' J this evening.

In Fla, they can't increase the price until they buy more gas at a higher price.  The smaller places usually have the best prices when it is going up, since they don't fill their tanks as often.  The big places get trucks in several times a day, so their prices go up faster, but also come down faster.  Fla's Attorney General busted a couple of stations in Tallahassee for price gouging last week.  Shut'em down COLD! ;D ;D

Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: DanG on October 05, 2005, 07:49:18 AM
It did shoot up around here, Ron.  After Katrina it went up to about $3.30, then slid back down to $2.50 after a couple of weeks.  After Rita, it went up to $3.50 and is back to about $3.00 now.

I think a good part of the shortage has been caused by transport issues.  The Atlanta area saw $6 gas after Katrina because their pipeline was down. We get our gas via barges from La. and those have just started to move again.

We seem to have the same problem here. I saw a station today: Super $2.75 and Diesel $3.30! I sure am glad I heat with wood and have a small gas pickup for everything that doesn't require the big Diesel.

I just filled the pickup at the local Fleet Farm. Gas was down to $2.28 and diesel was up to $3.21. It was $95 for about 30 gallons.

That's a huge rip off for diesel to be almost a dollar over gas. They are just sticking it to the farmers harvesting their crops and the fuel oil for home heat.

I'm of the conclusion that the oil companies (who wrongly get the blame), are being limited in what they can do by the 'enviros' who limit them at every move. There is oil to be had, and the 'not in my backyard' tune for off-shore drilling, refineries, and shipping has made it so gas and oil to the consumer is getting rare and expensive.
I heard the other day that the oil companies should just say "okay, we will stop our operations and only pump half as much oil out of the ground, and we'll see what happens to the price then". 
The only way to get the price down is to get more of the available oil and gas, (or use less of it, which some of us are now doing), IMO.

Heard a petrol analyst on the radio today stating that the high diesel prices were caused by the shortage of gas.  All the producers shifted to gas to make up for the gas shortage.  This is also is contributing to the future storage of heating oil.  He also stated that when they shift back over to the “distillates” – heating , jet and diesel, the price of gas will go up again.

Kinda like saying the price of hamburger is going up because everybody wants steaks.

When you refine a barrel of crude you get different things out of it, depending on where you are in the circuit, but you can't put diesel, kerosene and jet fuel "back in the oven" and get more gasoline instead.

By virtue of the process, if they make more gasoline, they have to (proportionately) make more diesel also, period.

Now that's not to say their not leaving it in tanks and just shipping more gasoline, but they don't have enough tank space to do that for very long.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: DouginUtah on October 26, 2005, 11:32:50 AM
 
I don't pretend to understand how this all works but what I've read is that we are benefiting from the oversupply of gasoline in Europe (where they use more diesel fuel proportionately) which they have diverted to the US following the hurricanes. But the piper is coming down the road and will have to be paid back. Diesel is in short supply (and priced higher) because they (refiners) are building up the supply of home heating oil (from the same 35% of crude that produces diesel).

Does that make sense?

How about propane?
A greenhouse grower called to get a price on 5000 gallons.  They told him 2.00 per gallon for last week only.  :o He paid 1.30 last year.  I think that alot of greenhouses are going to be empty this winter. ::)

I am told that they can make more gas and less diesel and propane from a barrel of oil or vice verus.  Usually they push gas in the spring and summer and diesel and propane in the fall and winter.  But they were pressured to increase the gas supply at the loss of diesel and propane.  ::) People will pay less for their gas but spend the savings on higher heating and electricity.  Go figure the goverment mentality. :-\

What I meant by goverment mentaliy is that they will order a change in the natural flow of business just to satisfy a momentary problem.  Like pushing the oil refineries to produce more gas per barrel of oil when they would normally be producing more fuel oil and propane for the heating season.  The average citizen is happy because his car/suv is cheaper to fill but the long term consequences of higher shipping and heaing costs will still have them hollering tomorrow.  Then they will push for more oil/propane when they should be producing gas.  I guess what I am trying to say is that the goverment interference is slow and usually late.

Last night regular unleaded was $2.399 per gallon.  The price has been steady dropping for the past month or so.
For what it's worth, my aunt owns a piece of land that had a mineral lease on if for oil and gas.  It ran out years ago after the company drilled a couple of wells in the area and the capped them and left.  They found some oil shale and I heard some gas also.  This was in about 1980.  Last week she got a call from a gas company wanting to renew the lease.  Could be that higher prices have made her land attractive again.   ;)

Same type of deal I saw on TV about a farm in the west. The old man had mineral and oil rights and has long passed, but the daughter hung to the paperwork. She has 2 or 3 wells recently dug and the local farming community is up in arms. But, what it looks like to me is pure jelousy. These folks didn't look rich, they are down to earth and live simple lives and drive around in an old 70's ford pickup truck. So what's the harm in riding the wave to improve the family finances?

Here in Canada, the federal gooberment owns the mineral rights. The natives own the rights on the reserves, however. The seismic exploration or oil company will come to a landowner and tell him/her, not ask, that they are crossing the property or drilling and this is what they pay for access. If permission is refused, they go to the neighbours and suggest the big windfall is being delayed because of one individual. No Jed Clampetts here.

Gas is a 1.99 here for the past several days, I am guessing they are dropping the prices because of the holiday season around the corner.  If gas was still high no one would spend money for the holidays.  I would be willing to say around mid January it will start going back up.  Its all a game they play.

Here in Canada, the federal gooberment owns the mineral rights.

I think it would be a more accurate statement to say that when they gave out the land, they didn't automatically give out other rights except "surface rights".

Anybody can apply for the mineral or other rights to their lands, most just don't bother, that's all.

An old Dutchman up the road from our farm has the gas rights to his place, and there is a small gas pocket down there, it isn't worth building a pipeline to connect it to the distribution grid and sell it, the cost of the pipe would be more than the revenue.

It's been $1.799 here in northern Utah for the past few weeks but it had just jumped up to $1.899 when I filled up yesterday.

Diesel is higher for two reasons. One, it has more BTU per gallon (*) and two, gasoline has been low because of buildup from what has been borrowed from Europe, following Katrina.  It takes time for the ships to get it here and work its way through the system.

You don't want to know what gas is going to do this spring....

That's my 2¢.

-Doug
* remember Smokey Yunick from Popular Mechanix or was it Mechanix Illustrated? He predicted diesel would be priced higher because of the BTU content, way back in the fifties or sixties.

diesel is a by product of gasoline.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. You can't get diesel from gasoline. Each is derived from crude at different levels in the refinery.

At least that's how I understand it.   :)

gasoline takes more processing than diesel.


(http://)


Source: American Petroleum Institute (www.api.org). Figures are based on 1995 average yields for U.S. refineries. One barrel contains 42 gallons of crude oil. The total volume of products made is 44.2 GALLONS - 2.2 gallons greater than the original 42 gallons of crude oil. This is called "processing gain," where other chemicals are added to the refining process to create the products. 
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: farmerdoug on December 25, 2005, 07:48:21 AM
From what I understand is the ratio of gas and diesel is variable where the gain in one is a lost in the other.  After Katrina the refiners shifted to heavy gas producion a the lost of diesel to build the gas stocks.

I took a trick from Southwest Airline's operations book and pre-purchased a bunch of farm diesel at the end of '05 when the price was down.  7000 gallons at 2.03 a gallon hurt at the time, but when it went up a nickle a week after I bought it I figured I'd do ok.  The best part was being able to write the purchase off in '05.

DoubleD I can feel for you at $6.40 per gallon.  We are in Louisiana (U.S.A.) and paying $2.75.  Although I don't like our prices, I feel we have been blessed all of these year for having cheap gasoline. On the other hand we have become spoiled.  I really think it will get worse before it gets better.  The way to get the price down is lower the demand. 

 
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: DoubleD on April 19, 2006, 07:04:50 AM
highpockets here the gas is heavy taxed if I am not wrong we could pay half of that without taxes.
I am more than glad that my car have a small engine 1.0 L (61 cubic inches) so it doesn't drink to much  8).
I think that we could lower the demand for gas if people quit to use the car to move less than 1 or 2 km (0.6-1.2 miles) and start to use more their legs like I do.
Here we have a problem IMO : a big part of our electricity is produced by combustion of methane and other byproducts of mineral oil :-\ so we import a lot of oil.
Another problem is that everytime  the cost of a barrel rise they rise the price of the gas, but when oil is cheaper they don't lower the cost of gas >:(
Probably you know that yesterday at London the barrel of oil was 74$ :o

Just a week ago (April 12) I posted that gas was up to 2.69 around here.  That seemed high at the time, but now regular is $2.89 to premium $3.09 at most stations.

Seems to me like things will keep going up.  At least this thread is giving us some details to remember "the good old days" of cheap gas - under $3.00 / gal.

DoubleD is right - taxes in Europe are MUCH higher on gas.  So in many ways we are paying at least as much as they are.

Yesterday I noticed that regular gasoline was at $2.90 (rounding up the 9/10¢) in New Richmond, Wisconsin. 

I'm not sure what regular gasoline in Minnesota is right now but it's usually about a nickel less per gallon for two reasons.  Less state gasoline tax and 10% alcohol added.  Of course for Minnesotan's, the lower price at the pump doesn't include the money they pay out because the Minnesota government heavily subsidizes the companies making Gasohol from corn.  So they get to pay for it twice. Once through income tax and once through state gas tax.

My wallet hurts just as bad as everyone else.  However, I just did some calculating and don't think we had better be too quick to blame the oil companies.

Here is what I have found.  In 2004 oil was selling for $37 a barrel and gas was averaging $1.85 / gallon.

Today oil is selling for $73 a barrel.  If the same proportion is used, then gas should be selling for an average price of $3.65 a gallon.  Maybe that is where it will be soon. :o

We need to find some new forms of energy so we can stop importing oil.  This is a long hard job, but we put a man on the moon in 1969 and the Manhattan Project produced an Atomic Bomb in the 1940's.  Each of those projects took several years and the sooner we start on this one, the better.  I think that we have the expertise to move away from oil if only we have the desire to do so. With gas this high it seems to me that the economic incentive should be there.

I have heard and dont know how true this is but, here in Okla landowners who have wells are not getting no where near the $73 per barrel for there share they our pumping from there rights.  It would be interesting to know if this is true or not, unfortunantly I do not have wells on my property to determine this.

What frustrates me is that when a barrel of oil goes up a dollar, today its already reflected at the pumps tomorrow, I dont think they are refining the oil that quickly, then the oil companies are posting record profits, something just does not seem correct.

Here's the breakdown for branded gas @ $2.81/gal in California for April 10.

Dirtribution costs, marketing costs and profits - $0.01
Crude oil costs                                                  - $1.59
Refinery costs and profits                                 - $0.63
Taxes                                                                - $0.57

I imagine the price breakdown would be very similar in other areas.

Here's a thought.  When was the last time you saw a commercial on TV for gasoline?  They used to sponsor all types of programs, but I can't remember seeing one in years.

CF, oil prices are shown based on a certain area. For example the price may be Saudi Arabian Sweet.  Other world oils are prorated off this rate based on their sulphur, b.t.u., etc.  Regardless of what you hear, I can assure you that they Oklahoma Folks are getting a pretty good proportion of that price. We have some shallow production here in N. Louisiaina but I haven't talked to any of the local pumpers recently to see what they are getting. 

I read a deal this morning published by some oil analysis group. They are saying that if the American People would reduce their consumption by only 3% for 30 days that oil (gasoline) prices would crash.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could stick together and do that?

Talk about coincidence -

I just got one of those chain type emails asking me to stop buying Exxon/Mobil so they'd have to drop their price to sell again. I guess in theory it could work but I wonder whether the other companies would follow. Seems we'd have to get alot of people on board to make it work . . .

Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Ron Wenrich on April 20, 2006, 04:59:54 PM
So, if you stopped buying Exxon, do you think they would stop making it?  They would probably just sell it to whoever you buy from instead of them.  The only short term cure is to drive less.  I'm rather skeptical that a 3% drop would crash markets.

We lock in our mill diesel prices for 6 month stretches.  The average person can do that if they want to play the commodity markets.  That's how the fuel distributors do it.

A contract covers 1000 barrels of oil, gasoline, or diesel.  A barrel = 44 gallons, so you actually don't need the storage capacity.  Its all done in the markets.

Lower prices are nothing but a ploy.  A way to get the Government and the media off of the backs of the Marketing divisions of the Oil companies.  I wouldn't trust the Fuel marketing industry anymore than a three month old child with Grizzly Bear.  Slightly lower prices are nothing more than training the public to escalating prices.  Three Years ago, we would have thought someone was nuts to say that $2.79 was a buy. 

All they have to do is jump the price to $5 a gallon and then take it to $4 when everybody screams, and we'll think "how well off we are". 

They are a bunch of wolves with a captured market that do as they please.  An animal in the forest with no predators.

The only way to control a Market like this is to control the money.  You will see an end to millions of dollars being given to one executive, Luxury parties at conventions, and lower fuel prices.

The only way to deprive them of the money is for someone else to Market a new competing fuel.  If the oil companies do it , they are still in charge.

Using less fuel in smaller vehicles that are used seldom will only prolong the fuel in storage now, not drop the price.  As a matter of fact, I believe that they will respond to fewer sales with higher prices.

To really fix the perceived problem, someone must develop a fuel from a renewable resource.  Something that can move our vehicles and power our manufacturing plants.

I could have not said it any better Tom.   You are 100% correct in your reply.  What frustrates me also is that oil companies can create there own supply and demand, if prices are low and need to be increased they can claim they need to take a refinery offline to repair or upgrade and this drives the prices up also.

I also honestly think that whenever the feds say they are going to check for price gouging they have some kind of deal worked out with the oil companies.  Every time they announce this the prices stabalize out and drop a little.  Could it be that if the feds have an aggreement with the oil companies when they announce this that if the prices stabalize or drop the price gouging investigation will not be followed through with.

A neon is a dodge product.  The whole thing is about the size of the bed of a standard pickup.  Maybe.

I don't think you could get a nights burn of firewood in it. :D :D

Gas price here is now $ 6 / gal. Beside that I needed a heavyer car to pull Amerika-Sågen. Found a good Volvo 945 -94 last week. That will cost me $ 800 more /year for gas  :(

Gas price here is now $ 6 / gal.


Swede, $6 a gallon sounds unbearably high if we had to pay it here in the U.S.   I was wondering .... what does the average worker in sweden make per hour, and how does it convert to U.S. dollars?

1.  A grocery store worker.

2.  A law enforcement officer.

3.  A store manager.

4.  An auto mechanic.

5.  A physcian.

A normally income here (1-4) is SEK 180-300 000 (-31% income tax) a year working 8 hrs. a day.

On the doctor front, they can name there price for private work, and earn a big wage most places, but we most all have access to them when we want, and there is no real hassel getting into hospital if you really need it

but booking in for operations can take a long time, the amount spent on medical care is huge, but it dont seem to be getting to the patients to fast, lots of nose's in the trough before the sick, esp at the PFI trust's

I'm curious about your tax rate.  Is yours a flat tax or is it graduated?  Here in the states, the rates go up as your income goes up.  We also have several layers of income tax - federal, state, and local.  At the local level you end up paying taxes on the tax, since we have no deductions at those levels.

Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: TW on May 29, 2006, 09:24:19 AM
The income tax is graduated both in Finland and Sweden. Tax is paid to state and municipality. The total percentage I gave was only roundabout, I think it was too low. It is hard for me to know excactly because I work only part time and study engineering part time.

The high taxes is the reason for that we can have
- No school fees
- Cheap health care
- Social security
and so on

Here's some things I've found that may help you out.  This is for central Pennsylvania:

Regular gas is $2.75/gal. 
Potatoes - $.70/lb
Provolone cheese - $6/lb
Whole chicken - $1.49/lb
Beef - $2-$12/lb, depending on cut
Shrimp - $5-$9/lb, depending on size
Apples - $.79/lb
Milk - $3.50/gal
Eggs - $1.50/doz

You can buy "bread" for about $1.50 per loaf, but it wouldn't be the kind you're used to.  The good bakery bread is about $2.50/loaf.  That's probably the kind you get.

The stuff in our center aisles of the store is our industrial foods.  Mass produced and low in quality, in my opinion.  Taste is often lacking, unless you like salt or sugar.   :D  Its best to skip this section, for the most part.

Cost of living?
I bought my home a year ago, and paid $133,500 for it.
IT has 2.6 acres, an 1100 SF manufactured home, 1200 SF shop, 150 sf storage building, and a pump house. It's nothing special, but it's mine.
The kicker is that, I had it appraised about 2 months ago, and the appraisal was $231,500.
One year, and it has appreciated 100K. That's NUTS!
In reality, I couldn't afford to purchase anything even remotely close to this today, even making $60K.

Yes, Furby, I just went back and read the first page. I can't believe all the people complaining about fuel at about 2.20 - 2.40/gal. Now they would be cheering if it got to those same numbers. I myself just made a comment the other night to Shirley about finding Premium at about $3.00/gal and thinking that was at least reasonable! Hard to believe how our attitude can change in a year. I keep hearing we should expect $5.00/gal by end of the year. I hope they are wrong, but I seem to remember these same sources predicting $3.00/gal gas a year ago. 
I guess I need to consider raising my rates again.  Maybe I will do something like the banks. Instead of linking my rates to the prime interest rate, I will link them to the Premium fuel rate!

I am almost daily amazed at the folks I run into, some who are otherwise pretty sharp, who haven't figured that out yet, Jeff.   That has been the standard oil game the last 30+ years.

At the moment, my gasoline stop is 2.79 for unlead.  I never look at the diesel (tractor) price, just pump it. 

Any day, I look for UPS to go up on shipping and increase their fuel surcharge.  That's a daily expenditure here.

It's not in perfect condition, but it's sure watertight and it locks, which was all I was worried about. Not much rust at all, and freshly painted inside and out.

Do a google search for 'Shipping container sales' and you should find something in your area.

Yikes, I paid about $60 for delivery.  Instead of a steel shipping container, I actually bought a big aluminum 8x45'x9'h tractor-trailer trailer (how do you say that?) flat on the bottom with the wheels removed.  The advantage of the aluminum instead of steel is I can forget about it and not worry about the top rusting through. 

Look in your yellow pages under storage containers or look for a phone number on the side of one you see on a construction site (that's what I did).  Around here I found several companies that rent and sell - one of their biggest rental customers is Walmart which rents a huge number for Christmas lay-a-ways every year.  Just after Christmas there is a big selection to pick from in a wide variety of condition. 

I got one in good shape with new doors for about $1600.  I used 1/2 of it as a garage for my tractor for a while which fit inside nicely even with the ROPS up.  I wish I had the cash for a second one.

Seems like we have the beginnings of a Gas Price War in Central Palm Beach county.
It all started with one station lowering their price to 2.71 from 309.9. This station had competition across the street and it was having a slow business day. It was a local news story. Made everyone else in the area lower their prices. I was passing through there yesterday. The sign read 2.67.9 :)   Now I'll bet Palm Beach county has 30 Gas Stations at the 2.69.9 price.  20 miles to the north in Jupiter, it was 319.9 yesterday.
Was reading a story on the Bangor Daily news online. There was a wealthy individual who bought a gas station somewhere in a small coastal town and was selling a little over cost and was getting all the business.  He even got the town Police fuel contract.
It forced Irving to match the price.  The Store Manager said the extra traffic was great for their other convenience items in the Store which made for profitability.

It is true that we do get better service for the price here.  For one thing, it is full service, old style.  They wash all the windows, mirrors, and empty any garbage out of the car.  Even with service, it is still pricey.  All things are relative though.  The cheapest price I can find for a gallon of milk is about $4.  A small water melon is about $12 at a discount food shop.  Considering those prices, I don't mind paying over $5 for gasoline.

I am looking at the silver lining in the high gas price cloud.  We're building ethanol and biodiesel plants like crazy here in Indiana.  Looks like it will be a good boost in crop prices.   8) Those plants also produce a good , fairly cheap cattle feed.   And maybe the high natural gas prices will motivate those guys up there in Michigan to get down here and drill these gas wells they got leased down here. I'm pretty sure my farm is about the center of a big field. ;) :D

I worked for a Finnish company for 20 years been there 20+ times.  I would rather pay $6 a gallon and have health insurance and education that you can count on. 

How many Americans have a summer home on the lake?  Quite a few Fins do.  Yes I will admit you live more conservatively than us in the states but you do have good things about your system  Like a tax and penalty system that takes more from the rich than poor.

I will take our system too.  Our system is "good" but it can be better.  It is how the USA works in my opinion. In my opinion part of a democracy is too demand a higher standard and state opposition freely ;D    It is also also my opinion that big Government and big business are making out real well while the "patriotic" American struggles ;)

It's around $1.09 a litre around here, down from $1.19 earlier in the summer. It's always higher in the summer months. We have been regulated since July and if the world price drops 5 C the regulatory body sends notice, otherwise the changes take effect every two weeks on Thursday morning. We still pay more than south central Canada and it's refined here. I know we pay more provincial tax than in Ontario, but they even pay less than places like Thunderbay and the Saulte. Historically, NW New Brunswick pay less than Saint John were it's refined.  ::)

Down to $3.09 for the cheap stuff, and diesel is down to $3.29.

Funny thing is in California, almost half of it's crude is from, well California. ???

45 % comes from Alaska and a very small percentage is imported. And 100% of California's gasoline usage is refined here as well.

They blame our high fuel prices in our state on fuel tax, and though it is the highest in the nation, it is on average maybe a few cents higher, not the $1/gallon more they charge us at the pump.  Whatever goes on in the middle east may affect Chevron(which is based in California) but why should anything outside of California, or Alaska affect the price we pay for Gasoline. I think that this is not about supply and demand, but more about what price Californians can afford or are willing to pay. >:(

I heard it was taxes and additives because of the pollution laws that makes your gasoline higher.

I read that you get about 19 gallons of gas from a barrel of oil.  So, for every $1 differential in barrel price would relate to 5 cents per gallon in gas.  We've had a 60 cent drop in the past 5 weeks which would reflect a $12 drop in oil.  Or is someone playing with the prices?

  Anybody watch the trading prices of Oil on the Commodity Board ??  Folks (Bin Laden) or others, can bid the prices up and sell anytime. Traders are responsible more than anything else, the way I see it ???????
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Ron Wenrich on September 13, 2006, 05:04:18 PM
For every contract bought, there is a contract sold.  Its a zero sum game.  Most commodity contracts do not get fulfilled, but are liquidated before expiration.  But, the guys that are selling at those high prices are the big boys.  Follow the money and you will see where the market is going. 

The commodity prices are being bid up by speculators, not the oil companies.  They are the ones selling to the speculators.  They are guaranteed a price for their oil, whether the contract gets fulfilled or not. 

That doesn't mean that traders don't push the market, but they don't have as much influence as you may believe.  I've seen some unexplainable spikes in the market, and it just looked like someone was trying to wipe out investor stops.

If traders can push a market up, why can't other traders bring the market down?  Using your scenario, a fund of consumers could control prices just as readily.

So what effect will lower gas prices have on ethanol and biodiesel development or the fall election? 
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Fla._Deadheader on September 13, 2006, 05:24:31 PM

 I've watched the trading on some days. Seems that if we KNEW the actual price per barrel, then we could see where the traders go with it ??  Remember the "embargo" of the mid 70's ??? We were just getting started in Arkansas. Had to buy road Diesel and that included taxes. Once the prices started back down, the general consensus was, " No need to look for alternatives. I think this lowering of prices is just a tool, to keep the free thinkers and doers from getting too serious about alternatives. Seems to work every time we face these issues.

  I'm looking into promoting straight oil from crushing oil bearing seeds, down here. Got some leads and need to check them out. Costa Rica is SERIOUS about alternatives. They even have a small Wind Farm right off Lake Arenal.  8) 8)

The paper said we should expect 4.00$ a gal gas later in the summer. Must be they are getting us prepared. Isn't it great when monopolies can control the market and charge whatever they want?

We may not like it (higher prices). But lets face it, we keep buying it regardless the price. When "we" stop buying so much, the price will go down or level off.

If the demand is high, the price goes up until the demand is satisfied. Simple economics. Not GREED, IMO.

Still is cheaper per gallon compared to wages and price per gallon in the 50's (when gas was around $0.32 / gal and wages $1 an hour.  We just enjoyed the cheap gas for many years in between there.

My take is we should drill for the oil that we know is there....off coast of California, and deep in the Gulf.

I don't like the price, but I don't complain about it. I like to have it available when I want it.  :)
When my money gets tight, I will stop buying fast foods and eat out less often, before I will stop driving my SUV. Just my priorities at the moment.  :)

I do not totally disagree.  A free market economy is just that we are all free to make choices.
BUT...
One must feel some animosity twords the oil companies that are making record quarterly earnings, while airlines go bankrupt, and we all don't get to eat as many hamburgers as we would like to :D ;)

Record profits are fine.  More power to people that find a way to make a buck.  Problem is the massive tax dollars subsidies that go to these large oil companies. ???

I haven’t been following this thread because I tend not to want make myself depressed.

But apparently gas prices are not nearly high enough.  I’ve not seen any slowdown in traffic (speed and numbers) when I’ve been out.

The other day as I was putting $95 in gas our 3500 Dodge,  a couple of times a young men pulled through the lot in an old clunker 3/4 ton Chevy PU and “got on it” as he left the lot. Apparently he thought he was entertaining someone.  I bet he was burning gas faster than I was pumping it in my tank.

Friday evening I took Mary out to the corner dinner for a catfish dinner.  As we eat,  I bet I saw 20 hobby stock cars pulled on trailers heading to the dirt track just down the road.  I bet not one of them staid home because of the gas prices.

Yesterday evening as I was working on Mary’s lawnmower I could hear the “RIPPPP, RIPPPP, RIPPPP” of some kind of 2 cycle noise polluter on the farm to the east and a “ROOOOOR!” of some kind of pulling truck or hobby stock car on the farm to the west.

I get tired of hearing the free market argument used as it relates to many industries.  These markets are not free, they are controlled.  Free markets have to do with one that has many suppliers and many users.   The agricultural markets are a good example, so is coal.

But, the oil market has many users and very few suppliers.  As such, any one supplier can control price by making some adjustments to their supply chain.  Sometimes all it takes is just a threat, and markets respond.

Other arguments of it being more expensive in the past or in another country doesn't mean a thing.  Other countries have different taxation and infrastructure.  Past pricing has no impact on current pricing.  Why use it as a yardstick?

Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Tom on May 13, 2007, 10:16:13 AM
I agree, Ron.
And, your local distributor can accept some of the blame for the price as well.  He's capable of gouging when his religion tempered guilt is overcome.

Georgia, to the North, has always had lower taxes on fuel.  Florida residents close to the border would trade across the line, which also took other monies across the line too.  For the greater benefit, it was a good thing and towns prospered from this miniature economy.

When gas prices started going up, more people began to make the trip.  Then some of the Georgia retailers decided to take advantage of the difference themselves.  They have raised the price of gas to match Florida's prices.  The difference is that the State of Florida gets the increase here, The retailer or distributor gets the increase in Georgia.  Why?  Because, it's taxed by the gallon not the dollar.  The result is the loss of incentive for the customer from Florida to shop in Georgia, so the Georgia retailer is beating up his own now.  The short-sightedness is that the community has lost the Restaurant dollars, etc. that came with the lower fuel.  Is it really greed?  What else could you call it when there is no sense of community?

Jacksonville is a large, port town.  Fuel is shipped into our port and distributed.  Yet, gasoline can vary as much as ten cents a gallon from one side of town to the other. It's just a game that the entire fuel market plays with its customers.

It's the same as insurance for your car.  The company's have to compete until the government says that you must have it to drive.   Then, somehow, all the prices seem to rise and find a different level to "stabilize".

Here's a test, if you have the money to try it.   Cancel your home-owners insurance.  Then go out out and try to replace it.  You are required to have insurance if the home is mortgaged. If you don't, the mortgager is allowed to insure it himself and charge you for it.  So, the only shopping choice you have is pay a higher price for what you had, or re-finance and hope that insurance will be part of the package that one finance company uses to get the business from the other.

If anyone thinks that Big Business operates by the Golden Rule, they are sorely Evian, ..I mean naive.

We are just being trained.  You can tell that you have been trained when you say "It's only $2.00 across the street".    Only!! :D

A recent study was released about fuel prices in Canada and it has concluded that there is a lot of price gouging. But, I am glad to see the prices closer to the refinery have begun to be less than those far away for a change. But, this is due to regulation. Even when the price is set and a max rate established, there are still some stations adding a point or two above that rate and figure no one will say a thing. They are right.

Also, there is no shortage of fuel in Canada by a long shot. So why should a shortage in California affect my price in NB, for example? There is even a second refinery going up here. The particular company putting it up has rail, sea and road transport all integrated into several companies they own. They depend on no one to get stuff done.

A line I read from a magazine this winter read, 'They seem to be able to make money when everyone else is operating at a loss.'  ;D

My take is we should drill for the oil that we know is there....off coast of California, and deep in the Gulf.



But I doubt that this would make fuel any cheaper. :-\  California uses more fuel than any other state in the Nation, but only gets 5% of its oil from arab nations. California produces half of it's own oil, and the remainder comes from Alaska and Mexico, and California refines all of its own oil.  However, California continues to have the highest fuel prices in the nation. ???  Why ?because we keep buying it.  :-\

Correct me if I am wrong, but in Finland, you get free higher education, health care, job security, and a real high safety net that helps make crime as we in the States know it almost non existent, all on a "tax dollar" that is not too different than we pay in the USA....(Best I can figure comparing with my Finnish friends.)
(Not saying the USA should be come a Socialist country, but Finland with high gas prices does have perks for the average joe.)

On Tuesday May 15, 2007 there is a nationwide "gas out" planned.

If you search the internet there are several sights that have information on  this.

They do not want people to buy fuel they say that the companies will lose millions of dollars.  It was on our local ABC channel tonight.

The only problem with that idea is we will fill the tank on Monday or Wednesday.  Big oil will not notice it but the stations will be hurt in other sales for sure.

We need to use less gas overall to show the big oil guys.  Then it will be cheaper for China. ::)

It only works if you stop driving for the day.  I don't fill up every day, so these "gas outs" are lost on the vast majority of people.  I filled up on Sunday, and will be good for 1 1/2 weeks.  Gas went up 6¢ on Monday to $2.95.

In case you missed it, April retail sales were down.  This is probably a result of gas prices.  People have less money to spend, due to fuel prices.  It happened the last time that fuel spiked in price.

I think they're just pushing to see how much it takes to kill the goose laying the golden eggs.   :D

The big oil companies are the only entities that have the resources (from us) to research alternative fuels. But where is the incentive since they are reaping (raping) huge profits from oil. We're stuck with what big oil provides until we can separate the water molecule and burn hydrogen. If some of you wizards can figure that one out you can be very wealthy or very dead. Until then, I'll be burning gas to Sawlex.

I cut back on travel as much as possible several years ago, still the case.
Been trying to get up to Jeff and Tammy's place since Feb. ::)

Point being, some folks have cut back, but can you even begin to imagine the traffic if no one had cut back like they say they had, and gas/fuel prices were back below a buck ??? :o

We ran into the same thing going south.  The deeper into georgia we got, the higher the prices.  We finally stopped just before entering Florida to take advantage of what we knew was going to be our cheapest gasoline.  It was 3.09.  I dread to see what the Florida Gas is tomorrow.

I remember last year when it was a big deal and a promise that there wouldn't be any price hikes higher then 20¢ at a time. This one was 25-35¢ hike, who knows what the next one will be. >:( >:( >:(

Very interesting.  I was talking to one of the millhands and he says that he puts in dry gas every other tank and that improves his gas mileage by about 20%.  He also keeps putting in injector cleaner. 

The big drawback is pouring the acetone into the tank.  It would be best to premix some in a gallon of gas, then just add that gallon when you filled the tank.  It would dilute it pretty good.

Maybe we should ask the Car Talk guys.   :D

I just quit looking at the price. I can't tell you what it is and have not noticed in weeks. I have to have it so I just fill up. I slide my debit card, punch my code in, and let it run till it shuts off. With 38 gallons and how I often wiat until I am sucking fumes its always well over $100 so i must be paying over $3 a gallon.
I say let it run to $10 a gallon. The sooner the better. When we start lynching politicians maybe they will do something. Whether or not it is their fault on the gas doesn't matter. They are guilty of treason in so many areas I say lynch them all and let God sort 'em out. We need a clean slate.

I paid $3.59 today.  Last year I said that the price of gas wasn't impacting my decisions about traveling, and when to go run errands, or whatever, but this summer is a different animal altogether. It's really impacting my bottom line, and my budget, and it's caused me to change the way I operate.

What do you think next summer's going to be looking like?  $4.59, and approaching $5.00? 

It's going to reach a point where the assumption we have that everyone can afford to own and operate a car is no longer accurate.  How can a minimum wage parent even afford a car these days, unless they just use it for running necessary errands?   >:(

I looked at the price this morning when I pumped a Ben Franklin in her . . . . $2.78. Diesel. I guess I am supposed to be grateful. I am not.

Then I took her out for new rubber all the way around. Toyos. Seems like a good bang for the buck. Wife's van has been doing well on them so I thought I'd see how the truck does with 'em.

Then, I took her over for new oil and grease.

Full tank, new rubber, oil and grease all in the same day. We'll be eating balogna for a month now. ::)

The wash was free on the way home. has been practically everyday for weeks and looks to continue for the foreseeable future. My wife called from Oklahoma and says she got hailed on this morning and had about zero vis for a few minutes. The highway traffic stopped dead in its tracks.

Most of your fuel economy relates to how you drive and how much you idle.  Shutting your car off at lights does not help, that is bologna.  You wouldn't believe the # of calls we get when fuel prices go up.  Everyone whines about poor mileage, "I've been getting 25 now I only get 22".  Give me a break.  Make sure the air and fuel filters are clean, tires are set per manufacturers specs., use good fuel, stay away from ethanol.  If the check engine light isn't on and it is running OK there isn't a problem.  I recommended to a guy that was getting 10mpg on his F450 pulling a trailer if he wanted better mileage to buy a Focus, he didn't think it was funny ::)

A gas price question:

Two years ago in August (at least that's how I remember it), when gas went up to around $2.40 (??) the gov't raised the mileage reimbursement to 48.5 cents per mile.  Now with gas almost a dollar more, there has been no action. 

Any idea of what formula is used to calculate the govt amount?  Also, does anyone have solid information on why they are taking so long to raise the amount?

Since nobody seemed to know the answer to my question - what formula is used to determine mileage reibursment, I did some research.  I found the following information at a Texas web site.

"The IRS employs a contractor to establish the federal mileage reimbursement rate. The contractor, Runzheimer International, conducts a nationwide survey and collects vehicle-operating information under the guidance of the IRS. The company has developed the federal mileage reimbursement rate since 1981. The data gathered by Runzheimer and the exact composition of the formula to weigh the items to determine a mileage reimbursement rate are considered proprietary by the IRS."

Now I wonder why this is proprietary information.  What kind of secret lies in such a formula?  I guess it just figures that with gas prices going higher and higher, the government wants to keep everything a secret.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: SwampDonkey on June 11, 2007, 08:02:21 PM
For years the Canada federal imbursement rate was $0.30/km, that was when gas was $0.45/litre. Now that it's $1.09/litre the adjusted rate should be closer to $0.50/km. But, they base it on the old rate as if time stood still.  So, it is best to keep a logbook on mileage and places visited, gas purchased, oil and repairs (keep receipts). You can also claim 30% depreciation expense and cost of finance (based on mileage for work). ::)

The  gov't. reimbursement rates don't seem to keep up with increased fuel prices. You are also expected to cover all your own vehicle maintenance with the rate given. It doesn't encourage one to want to use their personal vehicle for "official business" as they expect you to.

 There's a thread on another Forum I follow, and the concensus is, price is not escalating, buying power of Dollar is dropping into the toilet. Y'all DO know that the CDN Dollar is now slightly ahead of the US Dollar in purchasing power, right ???

  A few years ago, it lagged behind the US Dollar by nearly 45 cents. The Euro is being accepted as the World standard replacing the Dollar. When it gets completely changed over, hold onto yer butts, it's gonna be a rough ride.

  People in the USA have GOT to stop buying cheap Chinese and India crap. THAT will reverse the trend if everyone in the USA buys MADE IN USA goods.  ::) ::)

We know, but we still like to complain. Also I think we average alot more miles per year than most people over there.
I payed 2.09 per gallon here in kentucky to fill the car a few days ago and yesterday when I went to fill the mill it was 2.98. The price isn't what gets me as much as the constant fluxuation.... if they want to charge me 10.00 a gallon for gas than so be it, but please leave it there so I can get used to that price.

The price per barrel is driven by the stock market and has nothing to do with supply and demand.....its all predictions that traders are making and the suppliers capitalize on. The price started to climb at the beginning of the war because traders surmised that fuel was going to cost more because #1 production in Iraq would cease. #2 the war machine would be drawing from supply. that started the climb and then other investors saw the chance to make money and jumped on the oil band wagon....now we pay 3.00 per gallon for gas and diesel is refined less and now costs us even more.

It is just human nature for folks to only concern themselves with things they can see and feel.  Coal prices are not much of a concern for me, because I don't buy any, but they have an effect on my because some of my electricity is generated by it.

Cantcutter sort of stole my thunder with his explanation of the price fluxuations, and probably explained it better than I could.  I sometimes wonder what things would be like if we didn't have the Futures markets.  I know that they keep most things more stable in the long run, but they sometimes seem to inhibit free enterprise, too.  I also wonder how deeply the people who speculate there are imbedded in the transportation industry.  Are they shuttling commodities about all over the country just so they can get an even bigger piece of the pie?  The roads are clogged with JB Hunts and Schneiders and Werners, all hauling something somewhere, just be be hauled somewhere else, later.  Or is all of this just something developing in my own mind as I become more and more of an old fart?

Lots of things get factored into oil prices.  But, we have had a rapidly falling dollar in the past couple of years.  That has helped drive up oil prices.  While our costs were rising, Europe was fairly stable.

The recent push has also been the industrialization of the third world.  They sell more cars in India than they do in the US.  Guess there might be some demand there that wasn't just 10 years ago.

Post by: Timburr on November 04, 2007, 06:11:18 PM
Also I think we average alot more miles per year than most people over there.

Maybe.    Whilst your country is considerably larger than the UK, our hauliers are still driving for the same time duration per day , they just have multiple drop-offs, instead of a one drop.   Our sawmills and other off-road machinary is still running at 'x' ammount of hours.

The average mileage of a person in a year is in excess of 20,000.    Although granny only burns up 1,500 miles in a year, she is averaged out in the annual mileage by truckers, reps and the like, who drive more than 200,000 miles.
I know many people, who commute for more than 4 hours to and from work daily.

Crude price, I agree, is definately governed by the futures market, but there are other contributing factors.   In it's hunger for capitalism, industrial China's (and India) demand for fuel is rising exponentially.

Ron beat me to the third world industrialization point.

I was talking about just average everyday driving....Truck drivers (haulage contactors) here will run 500,000-1.000,000 miles per year easy. I used to drive locally around town and would run 50k per year just in a 20 square mile city. My wife an I put 20k per year on each of our three vehicles.

Just so you folks know, it's pretty hard to do much over 120k miles a year as a trucker.
100k-110k is a pretty good average.
It was easy at one time, many years ago, but with todays regs, not as easy.
Some drivers that may have a near perfect run all year long may do more, but I can tell you for a fact that no single driver is putting on a half million miles a year, that pure myth!


As a driver DanG, I don't see things being moved around the country needlessly.
I see consumers wanting what they can't get near them and paying for it to be shipped.
Don't matter if we are talking about shipping a pick up truck, or a package of popcorn.

Everything is affected by supply and demand. You can say that it's brokers on Wall Street jockeying futures but take away the buyers (us) and consumption and watch the price fall. The same happens with lumber, homes, steel - you name it. Does anyone remember back in the late 80's when the truckers all went on strike? I remember going through Duluth, MN and seeing semis parked for miles on the side of the road. Seems to me it might be time again. Although, as a point of interest - railroad stocks are doing well these days.

Yeah, half a million would be a bit of a stretch.  That would be over 1300 miles per day if ya drove 365 days a year!  Even James couldn't do that! :D :D

B-b-b-but Furby, what about all the stores that truck passes while taking that stuff to the distribution center?  It all has to be shipped back down the same road to those stores.  Now I know it wouldn't be efficient business for Walmart's bottom line, but speaking purely from a fuel consumption standpoint, it would be more economical to drop-ship the merchandise from the manufacturer or POE, directly to the stores via common carrier.

Not when you look at volume of material moved vs amount of fuel consumed.

Wally World, Home Depot, ect. are only getting a half pallet of this and a pallet of that and maybe two pallets of that at each store.
How many suppliers does Wally World have?
Drop shipped from all the suppliers would mean THOUSANDS of trucks pulling in and out of EVERY Wally World, EVERY DAY.

Having said that, I've personlly picked up a load of pallets in Central NY, and hauled them back to OH.
Seems like some waste, someplace in that trip, cept for the fact that I would have been driving back to OH empty at about the same fuel mileage if it wasn't for the backhaul.

We will see how fast the price per gallon comes down when the new "yo-yo" goes to Washington...wonder if that is really the cause? 

At least it is not $12 a gallon as in Africa...or double what we pay in other countries.
Gas prices are comparable to prices we paid 50 years ago...when it was 30 cents and wages were  $1/hour. Maybe about the same as now... ::)

Recent gas price increase is due to the refinary being down in Texas where they had the explosion.  It will be down for 2 months. 

Seems to me, with one less refinary, that there would actually be less oil demand, since you can't really sell to a refinary that can't use it.  That should make oil prices go down.  Gas prices would go up to reflect the lower supply.

Our prices went up 15¢ this past week.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: David Freed on February 24, 2008, 12:19:13 AM
I've heard lots of people blame people they don't like for the high gas prices. If you take the profits that the oil companies made and figure out how much profit per gallon they made, it works out to about $.10 per gallon. They are making record profits because we are buying more gas than ever in spite of the cost, not because they are raking in massive profits per gallon. Put the oil companies in a break even situation and prices will still be $3+ per gallon. The main reason prices are so high is because developing countries want more and more of the crude oil. The countries that have the oil are just selling to the highest bidder, one of which is the US because we the people are using so much gas and diesel. I own and drive a semi. My fuel bill can run as high as $1200 - $1500 per week, but I am not going to start blaming people that didn't cause it. Sorry for the rant, but I hear this all the time.

I came up with distribution of costs from this site:  http://www.gravmag.com/oil.html  It happens to be a geology consulting firm.  This is the breakdown as of April, 2006.  A little dated, but probably still within the ballpark.  The basis is $2.65/gal.

Production costs:  33¢
Production profits:  95¢  These 2 are the crude costs, I believe.
Refining costs:  40¢
Refining profits:  10¢
Transportation costs:  12¢
Transportation profits:  9¢
Marketing costs:  4¢
Marketing profits:  4¢
Retailer costs:  8¢
Retalier profits:  8¢
Taxes:  25-85¢

According to that breakdown, nearly half is profit, with the bulk going to the producer of oil.  I imagine quite a bit of that production profit can be blamed on the run up of crude prices.  It costs the same to get a $30 barrel oil out of the ground as it does a $100 barrel of oil.  Profits would vary substantially.

You know I see these discussions on oil company profits and our government controlling prices, etc. all of the time.  I want to think that people really know better but need a place to dispense their anger.  I to hate to pay the kind of prices we are having to pay but I do understand supply and demand. 

I managed rigs drilling in The Ghawar Field in 1977.  These kinds of fields are not known on earth anymore.  They are being exploited are a massive rate.  Many people are talking peek oil production.  The answer in every country is to slow down.  Walk to the mailbox.  Stay home, burn less.  Here is so interesting reading.  http://www.searchanddiscovery.net/documents/2004/afifi01/index.htm

It is serious folks.  I spent 42 years around the world looking for more oil. Where is it?

The Irving refinery in Saint John, here in NB supplies about 20 % of the US imports and they are working at building a second one. I think about 90 % of the oil for the refinery comes from outside of Canada. It will continue to come from those poor countries because it's cheaper to get. Also there is lots of foreign investment in those tar sands in Alberta. If the price dropped to $30/barrel that would stop that up over night. I doubt that will happen, since a lot of that investment comes from the US.

Last Saturday, I needed to fill my fuel tank in the pickup with diesel and drove past a number of stations and decided on the return trip to fill at the cheapest one. Most all were exactly the same price, which is unusual. But the Murphy station at the Walmart store was at $3.579 and that was two cents cheaper plus they honor competitors coupons and I had some 4 cents off coupons. So when I came back about two hours later, I stopped to fill up. Takes 95-100 gallons for the tank in the back and up to 34 gallons for the pickup.

But when I got back the price had gone up two cents to $3.599. So when I paid, I said something to the attendant about the increase and he said "I did not do it."  So I asked how it was changed and he told me it is all done by satellite from the main office. Thru the satellite they update the price directly at each pump and the sign out front. I wonder if the updates come directly from Saudi Arabia?

Ain't this new technology great!!!   :)


Here in Minnesota they now have a web site called Minnesotagasprices.com where people report actual prices at the pump so you can easily find the lowest prices in your area. I use it all the time.

Prices are regulated here and changed weekly if warranted. Since they have been doing that we have had some of the cheapest in Canada. Before ours was much higher and we live by the largest refinery in the country. I guess they figured we had to subsidize the trucking and shipping out of the province.  ::)

I think that Obama or Yo Mama will probably get into office and immediately call China and tell them to stop making cars. 


China's need for energy is projected to increase by 150 percent by 2020. to sustain its growth China requires increasing amounts of oil. Its oil consumption grows by 7.5% per year, seven times faster than the U.S.'
Growth in Chinese oil consumption has accelerated mainly because of a large-scale transition away from bicycles and mass transit toward private automobiles, more affordable since China's admission to the World Trade Organization. Consequently, by year 2010 China is expected to have 90 times more cars than in 1990. With automobile numbers growing at 19% a year, projections show that China could surpass the total number of cars in the U.S. by 2030.

A refinery In Edmonton, the Shell Athabasca plant, is not running to capacity for a couple weeks because of maintenance so there are shortages in local supply over that period. Some pumps are closed, but delivery priority is to rural areas. No doubt there will be a little bump up in pricing.

I've been told that the price is higher because there are more BTUs in a gallon of diesel fuel. There are probably other reasons.

I wish I could find what the ratio is regarding gasoline to diesel use per day, i.e., for each gallon of gasoline used there is 1.5 gallons of diesel used. Or maybe the other way around? So if you get 19.2 gallons of gasoline per barrel that means there is less diesel to be gotten. Thus it is in shorter supply.  Diesel, jet fuel, and heating oil are essentially the same aren't they?

Top of Utah (Flying J): Regular is $3.20, diesel is $3.94.

Even stove oil is high and traditionally it has been cheaper than gas or diesel for trucks, even though it is burned in trucks to.

I think it's $1.25 a litre here for stove oil. My oil tank is 900 litres and in our winters a tank might do a month and a half, with the stove never shutting off to maintain 75 F. When, the fire is out it gets cold quick. With a wood fire it's warm for several hours after the fire goes out and takes less than a cord a month at $200/cord. Time taken to clean up the basement in spring of wood chips and bark and dirt is about an hour and time taken to stack the wood is about  2.5  8 hr days.  ;D

Asphalt and Road Oil    1.7%
Other Refined Products    1.5%

Historically diesel was priced below gasoline as it is basically a by product with the focus one of producing gasoline.
I believe the reason diesel has been more expensive at the pump is that the oil companies understand that the price of diesel is somewhat meaningless to John Q. Public and so the masses don't get too excited about it.  The public fixates on gasoline.  So in a perverted way the oil compaines can improve their margin two fold by increasing the margin on diesel, jet and heating oil (yes. the consumers in the northeast react to heating oil but that is a small percentage of the market). 
The other thing that would make this scheme work better than hiking gasoline prices is that the higher diesel price is basically a pass through for most users of diesel.  It is only now that John Q. is paying attention because the cost of commodities has risen to the point it is beginning to hurt.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it .......unless of course you all shoot it full of holes.  Ron?

They raise it then he pumps it. I didn't see a truck there unloading fuel at any time went through there.  PRICE GOUGING BIG TIME!!! The other 2 stations in town are still at $3.34 a gallon. Thats a .13 a gallon difference!!! What are we to do? ??? I have already parked my truck and my wife and I are carpooling .... whats next ??? will I have to saddle up the pony??? ???

In my monthly electric co-op magazine, there is an ad for a 2 and 4 seater pedal machine.  I am beginning to think of just how much of a load I could carry with one, with the right gearing and all.

Gas went from 3.45 to 3.55 yesterday. It makes it easier for them to change the sign when it goes up in ten cent increments.

The last time I bought gas, it was $3.25 and that was 10 days ago.  Today its $3.45, so its 20¢ in less than 2 weeks.

All this because the price of oil hit a record $117 a barrel, only because a Japanese oil tanker was attacked.  Don't you like how gas prices go up right away at the pump, when all the hubbub on Wall Street is all about crude oil that won't trickle down to us for months?

Seen 6 tanker trucks in a 6 mile stretch near work yesterday morning.
Two were off loading at stations and 4 were enroute.
Never seen that before in such a small area and can't figure out why, unless there was a run on the pumps with folks fearfull of it going even higher.
My Mom saw on the news last night that prices were going to go up today again.
They went down a penny or two.

At the moment, across the road at the Valero, unlead regular is 3.41 and diesel is 4.09.

The wife and other retail managers had a meeting with the upper crust of Valero Energy yesterday.  Since Valero bought into the retail, it had been utilizing the refinery's capital to help renovate, revitalize and build up the retail stores to what their maketing strategies had envisioned.

Now, the retail is on its own.  Rather an either make it or break it scenario.  Notoriously, retail fuel sales in such environments has been an 'invite' to merchandise sales.  Summarily, there's not enough profit on fuel sales to pay its own way (pumps, fees, electricity, delivery, etc.).  With the 'pay at the pump' becoming more popular and universal, trying to keep people coming in the store to make purchases has been more and more of a challenge. 

Ultimately, the retail store can not/will not remain if it does not maintain enough profit to keep it from becoming a burden.

As an interest, the wife's store's projected fuel sales is 4,500 gals a day.   Anything over that, and she is penalized.  Anything under 4,000, she is penalized.  In the past, managers received a quarterly bonus depending on a complex list of percentages of initiatives and quotas.

As of May 1, this changes to a trimester bonus.   Of course, significant changes as to how those fewer bonuses are translated will implement also.  As an example, if, during a trimester (4months) there is the loss of one employee, the 17.5% on "turnover" is lost.  An employee caught selling tobacco or alcohol to a minor, costs the manager 50% of the trimester bonus.   Etc., etc. 

I suppose it should be considered fortunate that the minimum a manager can make on their bonus is $0. 

Now, this morning, my wife gets up at 2 AM to get into her store to have time to complete absolute necessary functions, before she has to leave at 5:30 AM to go to another meeting (stopping at another store on the way and picking up some other managers who are to meet her at that location) at 8:00 AM, from which she will leave at about 5 PM, and get back to her store about 7PM.  At which time she will have to complete other absolute necessary functions before she can leave 'for the day'. 

Oh, the upper crust from Valero did recognize and address the fact that there will be more theft, robberies and irate customers as the fuel and merchandise prices increase, and as the economy goes the route it is going. 

One of the, in my belief, positive changes in determining a manger's bonus, is that there will no longer be a 15% loss due to customer complaints.  It seems Valero's research designated that nearly all of those turn out to be unwarranted complaints. 

The people who work in these stores have no control on their prices and/or merchandise. 

More and more checks and credit cards are being declined at the pumps and registers.  The employees have no control over that, either.

More and more, paying before pumping fuel is becoming necessary.  The employees can not hold credit cards, driver licenses, money, children, etc. for 'possible' payment.  Policies do not allow it. 
Trying to get them to do it, wastes time and puts the employee(s) in jeopardy.  They are strictly limited as to how much money they can have in their registers at any given moment.  They do not have the funds in their registers to break $100 bills for small purchases. 
Having such, could cause their immediate termination.

In the end, the managers/employees are under a lot of rules, regulations and pressures. 

In short, it ain't their fault and they're all trying to make a living in an ever increasing economic downturn, too.

Let's not forget getting cussed multiple times a day for everything under the sun, including not being able to rummage the dumpster.  The growth in the last few months of transient population scrounging every loose item in the neighborhood has become pretty critical.

On the upper side, those same Valero upper echelons did come to the wife's store a couple weeks ago to take her to lunch and present her with second service award.  Only one other store in the country has received two of those awards.   

Didn't come with any money, though.   :(

Price was 3.69 on the way to work a 6:00 in the morning and was 3.75 on my way home on 5/12/08.  I can't wait to see what they are today. I now always stop in the morning before the daily price increase takes place.  

Has anyone started to fill up more often to try to keep the tank full on the lower price?  I typicaly will fill my Honda 1 once every 12 days.  now on average there could be  5 price increases or maybe decrease in that period.  I think the last time I filled up the price was 3.63 a gallon.  I could have stoped yesterday and got maybe 3 gallons at 3.69 if I were to stop to day I would be 3.75 for that same 3 gallons.  Or do you wait until next week when who knows what it is going to cost.

Diesel on Monday was $4.259.

The good news, such as it is, is that with the warmer weather the demand for heating oil is down, so we should start to see the price of diesel fall below regular soon here in the Northeast.

Another driver saw diesel for $4.75 in the Chicago area today.

And that brings up a question.
I was talking to a fellow West of Chicago on Friday and he said that Chicago past a law requiring a special blend of diesel to reduce emissions/smog during the summer months and that blend was going to cost more.
Anyone know about that law and what the special blend is ???


Little Bark,
Normally I fill my tank and drive until empty, I don't like wasting time stopping to fill up all the time.

I know that the reason for high fuel prices in Europe is mainly due to high taxes.  How high are your taxes on that $6.40/gal gas?  Ours varies from state to state, but I think ours totals about 52¢.  I'm sure someone will correct me.

Little Bark,
Normally I fill my tank and drive until empty,

My daughter always rolled her eyes when I would tell her she was going to burn her fuel pump out, and clog her injectors by running on empty always.

She's pretty smart for a blonde, she thinks. "Dad, a fuel pump can burn up if it runs empty with no gas going through it not while it is just low."

Dear Abby, said I. A fuel pump housing will be exposed, not immersed in the fuel, while it is running with only a shallow layer of fuel in the tank, which will allow it to overheat. After so many times the pump can sieze. Plus, all the sludge, contaminants, and algae which grows down there will make it's way to your injectors filters be danged.

I just spent over $800 last month to have her fuel pump replaced. Coincedence I'm sure. ::)

Rising oil prices just seem unstoppable.

Even I was amazed to see crude pushing $130 on Tuesday. Not because it had gotten to that price, but because it got there so fast. That's 30% over where it was at the beginning of the year.

The peakers (or, if you like, the "peak freaks") have won the debate about oil supplies, and it was the price shock that ended it. I'd still prefer that the discussion revolved around flow rates-that is, whether we can really get from 85 million barrels per day (mbpd) today to 116 by 2030, as the IEA has predicted-but I'll settle for not having to see some "expert" on TV predicting that oil is going back to $45, or $25, or whatever, anymore.

At least the message that oil prices are never going back to those levels seems to have gotten through.

Last July, the National Petroleum Council joined the chorus predicting that oil supply would reach 115-120 mbpd by 2030. I lambasted them for it, along with many other knowledgeable observers.

One of those observers was Matthew Simmons, the world's top oil investment banker, who remarked, "We don't have any idea where those reserves are going to come from or how we are going to get them out of the ground. The odds of this ever happening are zero."

Simmons had argued for years that oil was far too cheap, and would soon go into triple digits. He saw $150 oil not too far into the future, and eventually perhaps $300 oil, but in mid-2007, he was widely ridiculed for it.

Well, Simmons was right. He wasn't the only one, either.

Legendary oil investor T. Boone Pickens agreed with Simmons, and placed his bets accordingly, which made him a fortune. Pickens' latest bet is that we'll see $150 oil by the end of this year.

Goldman Sachs is another. They were the only investment bank to correctly predict today's oil prices last year. Their latest prediction? $148 a barrel this year.

I think that's about right. It might even be a bit on the conservative side.

But not everyone in the oil and investing business has had the vision to see the future of oil clearly, or the guts to make such bold predictions.

Unfortunately for America-indeed, for the world-our president, with all of his experience and knowledge of the oil business, has been one of the last to come around.

The Jawbone of an Ass
When Dubya was first running for president in 1999, and oil had risen to the shocking price of $30 a barrel, he chastised President Clinton for it, arguing that he "must jawbone OPEC members to lower prices."

Perhaps he intended "jawbone" as a reference to Judges Chapter 15 in the Bible, where Samson picks up the jawbone of an ass and uses it to slay 1000 Philistines. That sort of megalomanic Christianity has been a common theme in his presidency. But some of us might read his metaphor a slightly different way...

As his campaign went on, the "jawbone" solution became a regular part of his stump speech. In June 2000, the New York Times reported:

"I would work with our friends in OPEC to convince them to open up the spigot, to increase the supply," Mr. Bush, the presumptive Republican candidate for president, told reporters here today. "Use the capital that my administration will earn, with the Kuwaitis or the Saudis, and convince them to open up the spigot."
His pitch was essentially unchanged in the spring of 2005, with oil now trading in the $50s: "I'll be talking to our friends about making sure they understand that if they pinch the world economy too much, it'll affect their ability to sell crude oil in the long run," Bush said.

When Gov. Bill Richardson was energy secretary under President Clinton, he did plenty of jawboning-or at least, he tried. In an interview with the Associated Press a few days ago, he remarked that "on several occasions they increased production and the price actually went down."

But Bush, he said, was (as they say in Texas), all hat and no cattle. "He never jawbones."

Until recently, that is.

To be fair, Bush has sent his energy secretary, Samuel Bodman, several times to try to talk OPEC into producing more oil, but he too has been frustrated. "I certainly have made my views known. Whether they respond or choose to respond is up to them and not up to me. I'm doing the best I can within the limited sets of options that we have," Bodman recently remarked.

Neither Bodman's efforts nor Bush's have produced results. Not only has Bush earned no capital with Kuwait or Saudi Arabia, he's been earning their disdain.

Last Sunday, on his second jawboning trip to Saudi Arabia this year, the president had the temerity to lecture the Saudis over their morality, social policies, and energy policy. He warned that "the supply of oil is limited, and nations like mine are aggressively developing alternatives to oil."

"Over time," he cautioned, "as the world becomes less dependent on oil, nations in the Middle East will have to build more diverse and more dynamic economies."

The Saudi leadership was swift to respond, chastising those "who are questioning our oil practices and policies." They were also quick to point out that their decision to increase oil production by 300,000 barrels a day by June was not influenced by Bush's trip. That decision was made a week prior, and was simply calculated to meet anticipated demand.

The markets weren't impressed, and responded to his trip by sending oil a few dollars higher, to over $126 a barrel.

"Bush's credibility is zero anyway," remarked Walid Khadduri, a Beirut-based consultant, on the trip. "I really don't know anyone who follows what he says, especially after what has happened in Iraq and then his Knesset speech the other day," he said, referring to Bush's apparent swipe at Barack Obama at a recent speech to the Israeli legislature, wherein he said that "some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals."

Once again, Bush seems to be living in an alternate universe.

Not only is jawboning the Saudis to increase their oil production a kind of negotiation with our "friends" who don't subscribe to most of our democratic ideals, biting the hand that feeds you at the very same moment is a tactic that even a three-year-old wouldn't try.

OPEC knows the score on oil as well as anyone. They are basically correct in asserting that the markets are well-supplied, and that global refining capacity for the ample supplies of heavy sour crude from sources such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela is limited.

They also know that, as I have written about previously, the skyrocketing price of oil in recent times has as much to do with the sinking dollar as anything else. But the Bush administration has done nothing about that, so why should they make extraordinary efforts to increase oil production? They would rather simply limit their exposure to the Fed's failed fiscal policy by trading more oil in euros and other non-dollar denominations.

Finally, OPEC knows that peak oil has arrived, and its members are becoming more focused on stewarding their black gold riches for their own countries' benefit than they are on trying to prop up the U.S. economy. "I think it's a mistake to have your biggest customer's economy to slow down," Bush whined, but OPEC is looking at their biggest customers going forward: not the U.S., where petroleum consumption is slowly declining, but the emerging economies of the world, where demand is red-hot.

But President Bush has continued to pretend that we can drill our way to oil freedom, if only those *DanG Democrats and environmentalists would get out of the way...even though he knows that's not true.

How This Backdoor Oil Play Makes Millions

Only a decade ago, the vast deposits of oil in the Bakken formation were too difficult to extract...

A groundbreaking drilling technique has completely changed the playing field. You see, using this breakthrough technology, a few oil companies now have access to billions of barrels of oil.

One company has already jumped over 63% in under a month!

Now that the 2008 drilling programs are underway, a few small oil producers are ready to make another round of profits.

Learn more about how to invest in the Bakken oil boom.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"W" Is For Wrong Way
It's not like President Bush has been oblivious to peak oil. This wasn't his first statement to the effect that oil won't last forever, although he's been careful to avoid the phrase "peak oil." Dick Cheney himself explained the reality of peak oil to the Institute of Petroleum in November, 1999:

By some estimates there will be an average of two per cent annual growth in global oil demand over the years ahead along with conservatively a three per cent natural decline in production from existing reserves. That means by 2010 we will need on the order of an additional fifty million barrels a day. So where is the oil going to come from? Governments and the national oil companies are obviously controlling about ninety per cent of the assets. Oil remains fundamentally a government business. While many regions of the world offer great oil opportunities, the Middle East with two thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies, even though companies are anxious for greater access there, progress continues to be slow.
Adding another 50 million barrels par day is like adding another five Saudi Arabias. Even Bush knows that's not possible. The whole time he's been talking about jawboning our friends, he has known what was to come.

And he has done his level best to ensure that America is completely and utterly unprepared to deal with it.

A president who truly cared about his country, knowing what he has known about peak oil, would have taken the galvanizing effect of 9-11 to ask his fellow citizens to drive less, to conserve, to pull together in a campaign of relocalization, and do to all that we could to wean ourselves from our addiction to oil.

Instead, he encouraged us to jump in our SUVs and go shopping.

Instead, he tried to manufacture consent to invade Iraq, and go after its oil militarily on a false pretext, which actually reduced the global supply of oil.

Instead of actually doing something to reduce our dependence on oil, or aggressively pursuing renewable energy technologies that are technically and economically viable today, he has put a big fat thumb on the scale in favor of the oil and gas business, and trumpeted the fairy tale of a "hydrogen economy" and not-ready-for-prime-time switchgrass ethanol.

He has blocked and stalled every meaningful attempt to address the climate change challenge, to the point where America now stands alone in the developed world in opposing the Kyoto Protocol. Worse, the White House has directly intervened to prevent the EPA from granting states the authority to set more stringent air quality standards. This administration has consistently demonstrated a "disregard for the law and science" in its opposition to environmental protection, according to federal judges.

Instead of asking America to reduce its dependence on petroleum, he has argued that we should crawl out even further on that limb by expanding destructive drilling off our coasts, and in our remaining wildlife refuges and natural preserves. This White House has attempted at every turn to gut conservation laws and render their enforcement toothless.

"Until we change our habits, there's going to be more dependency on oil," he admitted, but then has recommended absolutely nothing to change those habits. Instead of doing something effective, like supporting expanded rail service and requiring higher CAFE standards, the administration has sided firmly with the automakers in resisting higher efficiency and emission standards, while leaving Amtrak to struggle along on a life-support budget.

Indeed, he has actually made our problems worse, by killing the Partnership for a New Generation Vehicle program, which promised to deliver 80 mpg cars, and replacing it with a the pie-in-the-sky "Freedom Car" program, which only served to delay any real progress.

Not to mention this administration's full-throated support for corn ethanol, which has caused the painful-and entirely predictable-inflation of food prices, but which has not brought oil prices down at all. In fact it has only delayed the inevitable day when we must find ways to reduce our consumption of liquid fuels, a delay that will cost us dearly in the coming years.

"Our problem in America gets solved when we aggressively go for domestic exploration," Bush said after meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai a few days ago. "Our problem in America gets solved if we expand our refining capacity, promote nuclear energy and continue our strategy for the advancing of alternative energies as well as conservation," he said.

If only that were true. The nation's refinery utilization is currently at the bottom end of the normal range. Nuclear energy production cannot grow much beyond the current level (I explain the reasons for this in my book, Profit from the Peak), and it isn't going to do squat about our liquid fuel crisis. For electricity production, wind and solar are safer, and in many cases, cheaper than nuclear energy anyway.

And continuing his "strategy" for advancing alternative energy and conservation would amount to doing far too little, too late.

There is talk, and then there is action. With the Bush administration, they are two totally different things.

When you look at the actions of this administration, they are clearly focused on one purpose only: to increase the wealth, and limit the liability, of the traditional energy business. Period.

The rest of the nation has been hung out to dry.

A recent survey by law firm DLA Piper showed that 54% of its top corporate clients cited energy as the top issue that the next president and Congress should focus on, because energy costs are hurting their businesses from top to bottom. Energy costs have trumped the credit crisis, the recession, and foreign competition as their primary threat.

But you wouldn't know it from listening to Bush.

While oil and gasoline prices have hit record high after record high, and the dollar has posted record low after record low, Bush has said next to nothing, other than that he "understands" that America is hurting.

I have no doubt of that, just as I have no doubt that things are going exactly the way he wants them to. He has successfully pushed the difficult choices that this nation has to face onto the next administration, and delayed the growth of renewable energy, while thickly lining the pockets of his friends in the energy business.

Thanks for nothing, Dubya. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Until next time,


Chris

Triple your Money every 3 Months on a U.S. Government Flood of "3160 Letters"
"3160 letters" are the very lifeblood for U.S. oil and gas companies. When declined, share prices plummet. On approval, something ridiculously profitable seems to happen.

Within a matter of two to four weeks, companies with 3160 letter approval surge anywhere from 18% to 45%. And it's about to happen yet again. In early April 2008, the government announced that "Our Next 3160 Letter Trade" successfully passed the environmental assessment for one of their massive wells.

This one company is sitting on such a massive, expected reserve that when its "3160" is approved, it could run another 200% to 300% in a matter of months. But you must own it today. Here's how.

There are two stations in my home area that are offering a discount for cash at the pump. 

Today:  $3.699 for cash, $3.749 for credit or debit card. 

I work 35 miles from home.  Home is rural, farm community, middle income.  Work is in a very high rent district with Jaguars, BMW's and Mercedes everywhere.  The price of gas (in the same county, and the same gas companies) at work is $3.899.  The gas is being pumped out of the same tanker...from the same substation.   ::)

They call that "zone pricing". At one time Rochester was the home of Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb and a host of successful manufacturing plants. There were many high paying jobs, so the oil companies hit this area with that "zone pricing" scam. The economic climate here has changed considerably but we are still subjected to zone pricing. Get 40 miles away from the city and gas falls 10-20¢ a gallon.

what is bad is there was 3 ethanol plants in the works last year in near by areas but were scrapped due to high cost of beans/corn and the local governments denying permits!?!?   the local RICH county/city planers thought it might smell in their rich side of town...   

as far as refineries they have been updated but like others said EPA/High costs are reason to NOT build as well as fact that more refining ability means cheaper fuel costs to ave guy and less profits for big oil execs.

You'd be interrested to know that "big oil" profits came mostly from selling diesel in foreign countries. There's no low sulfer requirements except in the US so the refining costs are alot less. Oil companies make 1 cent per gallon on gasoline and 3 cents on diesel. In foreign countries they make 20 and 25 cents profit. If Congress would allow drilling in ANWAR and off shore (where China is drilling away), then we might have a chance to increase supply. More supply means cheaper prices, economics 101.

If the major oil concerns wanted it, they would have it.  The lobbying power and control would far outweigh other thoughts and concerns.

Today, with fuel the way it is,  even the large part of the populace would be for the drilling.

Keeping government and/or Hoot Owl Worshipers as the 'bad guy' keeps pressure off the oil companies to drill and set up refining and delivery from pools that are not going to ultimately be profitable.

However, as retail fuel becomes stabilized at a significantly higher price, the possibility of profit may reach a level that these options will be pursued.  If so, 'government' will conveniently 'part the sea'.

Of course, that's just mine and a few other's analysis and not meant to interrupt the status quo or taint the popular belief.

I watched the Senate hearings this week against the big oil companies. These Senators are a joke. They blame everyone for high prices but themselves. These EDITED say they won't approve drilling that we should use alternatives to oil. WHAT ALTERNATIVES??!  They preach to the people that we should get away from foreign oil. How can you get off foreign oil when you won't drill domesticly. I blame stupid, lazy politicians who are bought and paid for by environmental groups. I say drill and get off foreign oil. Give attractive tax credits for those that buy hybrids and fuel efficient vehicles. Have Congress pass laws that oversee these greedy traders that push crude prices up due to speculation. If we become oil independent from middle east, then if a conflict occurs over there it would'nt affect crude prices. Build at least one or two new refineries here also. These politicians are'nt feeling this like we are. Their cars and fuel are paid by tax payers to get to and from work. They are so out of touch with reality. Did you all know Chelsea Clinton is a hedgefund manager that is making millions off high crude prices. Did you you all know Sen. Barbara Boxer was an oil trader before she became a Senator? She made millions on oil. Do you know she still owns large amounts of stock in oil?  There are many of our politicians who own stock in big oil and are scoring big right now. We have too many hipocrits in Congress and they are playing us like a $3.00 fiddle. Check out your local congress and senators records. It's easy, just Google it. Vote these clowns out or put pressure on them with phone calls. This economy will never flourish without affordable oil. That's the bottom line. God help us if we get another Katrina. Prices will be skies the limit.  That's all I have to say about this.

Where the people fear or rely on the government you have tyranny; where the government fears the people, you have liberty.

One problem with drilling domestically is that the wells will be owned by major oil companies, Major oil companies sell in a global market, due to greed they will not cut profits to sell domestically cheaper. Did that make any sense? Now if the gov't stepped in and said that they had to sell to us at a cut rate, well then the oil co's cap their wells and continue to sell their overseas oil @ world market value.  If we were the only player in this game our demand would control the price speculation be hanged but other nations are controling the supply demand balance. And if demand goes down globally well good ole oil producers can always cut production to below demand and up the price to make up for profits.Produce less oil, use fewer resources, save on manpower requirements, sell oil produced for record profits......Sounds like a winner.  I would say that it is safe to say that we are properly screwed on oil prices.

Let's say we do up our production of homedrilled crude, how will that effect anything other than the short term market?  Can we really depend on oil as being the energy source of the future?  I'm not in the camp that thinks that short term solutions will yield to long term relief. 

What role should government play?  A lot of people are looking for the government to give them relief at the pump.  We could open up the rest of the US to commercial drilling.  We are producing about 40% of our needs.  Is there that much untapped potential to give us long term relief? 

We could remove all road taxes.  That takes away needed money for highway repair.  If it doesn't come from fuel taxes, they'll have to take it from someplace else.  Running deficits haven't proven to be a good deal.

Governments role should be to strengthen the dollar.  That's going to hurt, but that is the only role government should play.  A stronger dollar will lower the price of crude.  We have lost 1/3 of our buying power due to a devaluation of the dollar.  That's the tax that wasn't paid in the past to balance the budget and the cost of borrowing.

Personally, I don't think the future of our energy is in oil or other fossil fuels.  Its part of the puzzle, but not all of it.  It would be better to give incentives to other sources of renewable energy, if any incentives should be given. 

The government stayed away from the credit bubble, the internet bubble, and many other market bubbles that have formed.  It would be really a smart idea to stay away from the oil bubble.  Speculation provides market liquidity.  They make money on the run up, and take a bath when the bubble bursts.

I just got back from a weekend trip to NH. Traffic was the lightest i can ever remember it being on a holiday weekend.

Diesel prices:
Filled the tank in NJ: $4.55
Connecticut: $4.79
Mass: $4.89
NH: $4.69-$4.89, found a Hess station outside Concord NH where I filled up at $4.59. A sign on the pump read: "Due to increased diesel drive-offs, you must pre-pay in cash, or leave a credit card or drivers license with the cashier before filling." Sad...

On the plus side, I think I got decent fuel economy - at least 19 mpg - on the drive up. Full pressure in the tires, and kept the RPM's to 1900 max (68 mph).

If prices stay this high (or higher, God forbid) into the winter, there will be a lot of hurtin' folks up here in Alaska.  I've heard rumors of $6 or $7 a gallon for heating oil.  If it comes to that, I'm shutting down my boiler and we'll survive.  We were burning right at 200 gallons of heating oil per month, during the real cold months (that was just to heat the crawlspace and the shop).  At $7/gallon, that'd be around $1,400/month.  No way I can afford that.

I went to the library this morning to download AVG 8.0 (46 MB--4 hours on my dial-up. It took 6 minutes there.)

On the way home I stopped at the (only) local ethanol station and checked on the price of E85. It is $3.82/gal.

I noticed a guy filling up his Chrysler Sebring FlexFuel car. I went over and talked to him. I noticed that it had US Government plates on it.

"Are you required to use this?"
"Yep, word came down that if we have close access to E85 we must use it."

He seemed as excited about using E85 as I am.  :(

I went to www.fueleconomy.gov (http://www.fueleconomy.gov) and found that the Sebring gets (city) 19 mpg on gas and 13 mpg on E85. If my math is correct, using E85 at $3.82 is equal to paying $5.61 for gas.

Unleaded regular gas is $3.62 at AAFES on Hill AFB or $3.72 at Maverik.

One problem with drilling domestically is that the wells will be owned by major oil companies, Major oil companies sell in a global market, due to greed they will not cut profits to sell domestically cheaper. Did that make any sense? Now if the gov't stepped in and said that they had to sell to us at a cut rate, well then the oil co's cap their wells and continue to sell their overseas oil @ world market value.  If we were the only player in this game our demand would control the price speculation be hanged but other nations are controling the supply demand balance. And if demand goes down globally well good ole oil producers can always cut production to below demand and up the price to make up for profits.Produce less oil, use fewer resources, save on manpower requirements, sell oil produced for record profits......Sounds like a winner.  I would say that it is safe to say that we are properly screwed on oil prices.


Sorry, I can't go along with your theory. If you look at the Bakken and Barnett oil plays, in a few years, if Congress doesn't screw it up, oil prices will fall with the added supply. Not to mention the Canadian and Mexican plays, it's just like the housing market....supply and demand. Once these new oil finds come into the market along with ANWAR and off shore drillings, the market for oil products will fall. How far is another question. No different than timber or lumber products. Look at plywood prices from 10 years ago and now. How about corn and grain? As soon as the farmers start over producing, the prices will go down. That's the way life is.

Based on USG report , we can be off Saudi oil now!!  What in the hell is going on. They are now able to tap into this. All the government has to do is give go ahead.

For as long as I can remember, fuel has never lowered in price.  There have been insignificant lowering of prices during significant surges, but exponentially, fuel prices have risen quite notably. 

Regardless of who drills for oil, and where they drill for it,  the cost of that production is higher due to the current rising pricing status of every aspect of its implementation.   As such, that cost will have to be passed on to insure profit.

I agree. People can always come up with a few extra $$$ here and there to put gas in the tank, or limit trips.

But when four figure heating oil bills start showing up come November, there is going to be some serious you know what hitting the fan. Particularly in areas like the northeast who are very reliant on #2 heating oil. Also, we seem to be overdue due for a protracted winter/cold snap. I seem to recall last winter was very mild in the NE.

My house in Ohio has a forced air, oil furnace. When I first bought the place, we probably heated 90% with oil, 10% wood. Next winter it will probably end up being 20/80 oil to wood. Of course, I have the heating equipment, resources and tools to burn and supply most if not all of our firewood.

Many don't, and thats what concerns me.

We made a trip down to Portland, OR this past long weekend... about four hours each way. Diesel was $4.70 at the cheapest place out here, $4.89 in Seattle, and $4.99 in a few places on the highway and in Portland.

I thought we did OK, we averaged 19.9 mpg in a Dodge Cummins pickup, with six people in the rig and a bed full of tools and luggage and such, and three ladders on the ladder rack. Regardless, it still cost us $130 to fill up.

The trip made me think about the price of oil at $130+ a barrel, and how oil is valued in US dollars... so I wondered since the dollar is getting so weak, what would oil be if it was priced in Euros or some other currency? I had heard that in Europe people are not panicking, their gas prices are not spiking... so, I looked it up and found these:

Oil Would Be $65 if the Dollar Had Stayed Strong - AGI (http://seekingalpha.com/article/72651-oil-would-be-65-if-the-dollar-had-stayed-strong-agi?source=yahoo)

I do not agree with the emphasis in the articles that the decline of the dollar is primarily responsible for the rise in oil prices. For whatever reasons, those articles are slanted in the wrong direction, ie to blame the dollar for the high oil prices.

I have been hearing all along that experts say that over 40 percent of the price of crude is due to the enormous amount of large speculators in the crude oil markets. And today the CFTC has taken the unprecedented step of disclosing they have a six month old and ongoing investigation into price manipulation in the crude oil markets. Here you can read the entire announcement of increased scrutiny of the crude oil markets:
http://www.cftc.gov/newsroom/generalpressreleases/2008/pr5503-08.html (http://www.cftc.gov/newsroom/generalpressreleases/2008/pr5503-08.html)

This is the part about the investigation:


III. Continuation of Ongoing CFTC Nationwide Crude Oil Investigation

In December of 2007, the agency’s Division of Enforcement launched a nationwide crude oil investigation into practices surrounding the purchase, transportation, storage, and trading of crude oil and related derivative contracts. Although the Commission ordinarily conducts enforcement investigations on a confidential basis, the Commission is taking the extraordinary step of disclosing this investigation because of today’s unprecedented market conditions. The specifics of the ongoing investigation remain confidential. All Commission enforcement inquiries are focused on ensuring that the markets are properly policed for manipulation and abusive practices.

The Acting Chairman and the Commissioners commented:

“In addition to the CFTC’s ongoing examination of the role of fundamental economic forces and new investors in the recent commodity market price increases, the agency continues to pursue one of its primary missions – to deter, detect, and punish futures market manipulation.


I believe it would be more accurate to say the decline of the dollar is the RESULT of higher prices of energy and the enormous amounts of crude oil that we buy to support our energy consumption habits.  :)

It's cheaper now to use electric heat than any petroleum heat. Natural gas is  higher here than in the US because we are paying for the infrastructure to export it.  ::) >:( They can come up with any scheme and get away with it.

If you put a chart of the Euro against the chart with oil, you will find they pretty much run together.  As the Euro got stronger against the dollar, the price of oil went up.  That has nothing to do with speculation. 

The dollar gained strength today, and crude dropped $4.  For some reason, I'm seeing a correaltion there. 

I guess you can find an expert that will agree with any position you want to take.  I haven't heard of any that have blamed the run up to speculators.  The ones I heard said that it has a minor effect.  Maybe we have to swap experts.   ;)

Ron, that's a "leap of logic" that I do not care to take. Just because they "run together" does not say the two are related.

For some time now, the commodity experts that I see, specifically the CBOT analysists for farm commodities have been saying we are seeing strong speculative interests, including large institutional fund buyers, pension fund managers, and other large investors that have turned to the commodities markets since the stock market has been stagnant and the real estate market is dismal. They liken this to the dot com bubble, the Enron bubble, and other stock market run ups in recent memory. And these analysists see on a daily basis the contracts, both long and short that large investors are holding. And they have been saying for some time that over 40 percent of all commodity values are due to these large speculative interests.

There have always been suspicions about the oil market being somewhat rigged by oil companies and the governments that are heavily involved in oil production. Just imagine the enormous profits that could be made by the Iranians if they one day took some of their oil profits and bought long futures contracts in the oil market and then the next day the president of Iran announced they were curtailing crude oil deliveries. I do not doubt that similiar senarios have occured at some time in the past. Unfortunately, there is probably little that can be done to stop those types of things from happening other than stop being so dependent on imported oil.

It's very expensive in the Arctic in those communities. They have been discussing alternative energy sources for electricity. One idea is to use small nuclear reactors like on subs to provide electricity for 7000 homes in small communities. Kind of overkill for our northern communities unless you look at all the small villages scattered all over. Would have to look at running transmission lines all over I suppose. Canada's northern territories are huge tracks of land as anyone knows and very sparsely populated. The Russians are collaborating in talks about it. They have some rather large cities in the north compared to here.

They have plans to build a second reactor here, thus the interest in Uranium exploration. But we don't need it here. We have way more Gigawatts than we consume, unless the plan is to eliminate oil. But, I can't see that happening since Irving would go into convulsions, being the largest oil refinery in the country, getting ready to more than double production with a second refinery. During peek water flows here we don't use much oil, we have free flowing water.

As far as I could figure it out, I think littleBark has the answer. It is the fuel (gas) produced from coal. Presumably named after the legislation (HB 370??) which supports it. Only certain flexfuel cars are listed to use it--Chrysler Sebring being one. Apparently, they don't get "regular gas" from coal.

My question now is has anyone ever seen a gas pump with this fuel?

California oil is supplied by California, Alaska and Mexico, and 100% of California Gasoline is refined here. Why is it so expensive, cause we keep filling up. ???

I'm heading up on vacation to the Keweenaw Peninsula in the U.P. sometime this month, which I try to do every year.  The cost of gas for the trip this year compared to last year will literally be over twice as much.  Amazing when you think back on the price of our gas a month ago, let alone a year ago.   ::)

I paid $4.15 a gallon for unleaded in west Michigan a couple of days ago.

The Hess station in town dropped down to $4.69 for a couple of days last week, I think it's back up to $4.73 now. Several hot 95+ degree days in a row, and I'm still waiting for the summer crash of diesel prices due to the drop in demand for home heating oil. Something tells me the summer price drop might not happen this year.  :'(

Lurcherman, I think you'll see that crash in diesel prices superimposed on the steady rise in petro prices. Case in point, in the past two weeks, the price of gasoline in Northport, Wa. rose 60 cents, while the price of diesel rose only 3 cents.

I own an Opel Corsa bought new in 2000, it has a gas engine 1.0 L with 55 hp. It is a very good engine, I could get 41 mpg, but I live in mountain zone so I get a lower mileage around 36 mpg. Yes it is a small car not very powerful but I don't mind because i could still afford to use it even if it cost over 70$ to fill the gas tank. I am 69 inches tall and I weight 231 pound and I feel comfortable to get in an out of the car and I could take other 4 people with me and still have a boot for two travelling bag. It has air conditioner too  8) 8) 8)

Cars with small engines gas or Diesel are very diffuse and they are good. Diesel cars are very diffuse here especially engine with a capacity of 2.0 l turbo and non turbo all Common rail, engines with a bigger capacity are very rare  ::)

There is no real cause to worry about the price of gasoline.  It is merely a training exercise by those who sell the stuff.  You find the same techniques used by those who train dogs, horses and other animals.  They are deprived and then rewarded in incremental lessons until the expectations change.  They become elated over any offering that is a little better than the previous one and become numbed to the elevated aggravations of those that are stretching the envelope.  Soon the steak that the dog had become used to disappears and the dog is happy with a small piece of chicken, becoming exuberant with a handful of dry cereal dog food if the quantity is more.   These cycles allow the animal to be dragged around by the nose, following without much argument and even being happy over diminished offerings, the same as the masses of humans are trained to accept rising prices if the company's want more profit.

It really works too.  You can see the positive results when the customer says, "the price is only $3.99 a gallon today if you don't count the 9/10 of a cent that is Painted onto the sign.

That would take some moral fortitude and backbone.  Not likely  ::)

Tom, you have hit a homerun again.  The price of oil, and therfore gasoline and other fuels, has been pushed to the point the consumer actually started to change behavior.  Now that the break point has been established we can look for prices to hover around $3.75 - $3.90 per gallon regardless of what the price af a barrel may fall to.  Of course if the price per barrel should recover and continue the upward trajectory the price of fuel will climb again.  What joy!  :-\

If by some miracle the American consumer would change their energy guzzling habits the above scenario could change...

I heard that the feds, since fuel consumption has dropped, are looking at an increase in the fuel tax to compensate in order to maintain roadways.
With most industry, in one manner or another, dependent on day to day use of current fuel, with tighter and tighter margins, the likelihood of any positive change is little more than a fleeting whim.

Since the 9/10 of a cent painted on the sign doesn't mean anything (We don't pay attention to it, someone reciting the price of gas tells you the per gallon price and doesn't round up), perhaps the Government should take that marketing strategy and paint the road taxes on the sign.  It would do two things, It would cause the per gallon price to drop drastically, enabling the gasoline companies the opportunity to gather more profits with increased prices without the public becoming alarmed, and it would hide the road taxes so that the public would think they weren't being pig-stuck by their very own government.   In the end the results would remain the same, but everybody would be happy, just skipping along through the tulips, whistling and staring into the sky like the simpletons that the oil people and government think they are.  There would be strains of Tiny Tim's falsetto and mandolin on every street corner, and promises of a chicken in every pot, or pot in every chicken, or.....whatever it takes.  :P :D

That is what the government does not want ,Tom .   There is a law stating that gas pricing will include the tax .  The gov does not want you and the other consumers to know at a glance what they are sticking you with .  If there were not so many taxing bodies sticking it to the consumer I would say itemize the taxes with the total at the bottom .  But then the signs would be to tall to be in compliance with the zoning and building codes.

Florida hasn't got much in the way of toll roads, Disney/aka Orlando does.  It's those who are new to the State who like to impose money making schemes like they had back home.   If you get off to the "real" Florida, you find that it is quite different than what the tourists see.

My point wasn't that the tax should disappear.  I'm sure, as smart as our elected officials have shown themselves to be, that it is going to good use.  I was suggesting that the price of gasoline (on the sign) could be halved,  in some instances, if the taxes were painted on the sign along with the 9/10 that nobody pays any attention to.   If that were done, Gasoline would all of a sudden go from $5.00 a gallon to $2.50 a gallon and the public would ignore the $2.50 9/10 that would be painted on the sign. 

You would still pay the $4.99 9/10 at the pump that you have been trained to pay.      shhhhh-h-h-h--h---h----h  :)

Tom, I always round up (unless I forget). For example when I am looking at something for "$199.95", I say in my head it will cost me   $220.00 to buy it. I fibure 8.25% sales tax is close enough to 10% to figure it that way. When a guy brag about a good deal on a new whatever "I only paid $15,000 for that new whatever!"

Really? What did you do, create a farm account for that bass boat?

I wouldn't mind seeing $0.43/litre again.  ::)

Ever since Katrina, the price seems to be influenced by those storms more than ever. Never moved the price much before and besides that the world over is producing as one or two platforms are damaged someplace else. So prices need not jump like they have the last 3 years. Ridiculous! Storms haven't interrupted the flow anywhere in Canada for 25 + years that I ever heard of. My gas and oil doesn't come from the Gulf. If my power gets interrupted for a week, the power rate doesn't go up. ::)

We burned roughly 200 gallons per month during last winter, along with 3 - 4 cord of wood.  I am making some major improvements to the boiler system efficiency and the house, so this winter should be much lower consumption.

I have a question about "barrels" of oil.  I saw a still picture on a news clip on TV once, they were talking about the price /barrel.  It left me thinking they shipped the stuff in barrels, not large bulk containers which has always been my assumption.  When we go to the filling station we buy by the gallon, it is only a means of measuring.  But I do pump it in a gallon or 5 size container then transport for different uses.  I am bring this up because the other day this topic came up and the person I was talking to had the other assumption, that it was transported in the actual barrel, that just doesn't seem efficient.        Tim

Looked it up.

Oil

Measurement of Oil

What is the measuring unit for oil?

Oil is measured in “Barrels”, shortened to “bbl”.

One oil barrel is:
· 42 US Gallons
· 34.97 Imperial Gallons
· 159 Litres
· 0.159 cubic meters
· 0.136 metric tonnes weight (approximate – depends of the density of the oil)

A barrel of oil is indeed 42 gallons. At one point in time it was transported in open topped 60gallon barrels. Roads weren't so good back then and a good bit of the stuff would slosh out the top. The 42 gallons comes from the average amount left after the slosh factor.

Post by: Ron Wenrich on October 18, 2008, 03:29:39 PM
I read that the first oil wells pumped them in to whiskey barrels, which were the only barrels that were readily available at the time.  A whiskey barrel holds 40 gallons.  They made them 42 gallons to make it favorable for the buyer.  Something like the baker's dozen.

$2.999 for regular, and $3.689 for diesel. To be honest, I haven't looked at the price in many months. I use a certain amount of fuel every week, the price isn't going to make the trip to work shorter.

Diesel has dropped another 11 cents this week. I get my diesel at Sam's Club since it's the cheapest around. Also, I can pay at the pump with my credit card and the pump goes to $100 before shutting off, but it allows me to re-swipe my card multiple times. Everywhere else involves having to go inside the store and leave them my card or other such shenanigans.

Anyway, diesel was $3.589 today. I only got $100 since it will still drop more this week. That put over 28 gallons in my dual 50 gallon tanks though. When I'm busy I'll use 150 gallons per month.
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: SwampDonkey on October 18, 2008, 07:19:52 PM
You can use Interac at some pumps here also. The way it works here is you swipe and punch in a limit you want to spend. If the tank is full before the limit, it doesn't matter, it just charges for what was pumped. I guess the machine must check the credit in your account against what you key in to see if you have the cash to cover it. Stops the bums with NSF accounts from trying to pull a fast one.

OPEC is following the polls and figure they won't have to worry about us the USA doing anything about drilling for our own oil. OPEC will continue to play the cat and mouse game, and they do it very well, IMO  :)

OPEC is good at adhering to quotas and such when the price of oil is rising or is high. When it drops, with the exception of Saudia Arabia, they talk quotas and then pump all they can to try and keep the income up. Venezuala and Iran have gotten used to high oil prices-they are so overburdened with obligations that they cant afford to see their income drop. Unless the saudis seriously cut output, my guess is the other countries will pump all they can, and it really wont affect oil output.

It is all in what they decide to refine and then where the stuff is shipped.  These are the major pieces in how they control the market.  I really would like it if the state of Alaska just bought 1 or 2 of the refineries and then refined all of our own gasoline.  We could be so efficient here...  it's just plain ridiculous.

Other oil prices are a killer too. I see chainsaw bar oil for $11/gal.  Motor oil from $2.00/quart on up.

We went to an oil supply company to get some hydraulic fluid.  They had just sold 40 gallons of what we needed earlier this morning at $45/5 gallon bucket.  They’ll get in more in two weeks.  I hope the price goes down. (I only need to top off with a gallon or two.)

I am guessing after the elections are over it ill go back up.  Some places around here are $1.99.  I wonder how the people feel who purchased new cars with the option of $2.99 gasoline guarantee, or $3000 cash back on the new car?  They had alot of those car sale commercials here when it was around $4.00 gallon.

Gas has been steadily dropping here, diesel was stuck at $3.30 a gallon for a couple of weeks... then this morning on my way to work I saw $2.57 gas, $3.19 diesel.

Warbird, why is it that fuel is expensive up there? Do they think you folks can afford more because of your $3,200 Pemanent Fund Dividend checks? ;) :D No, seriously... how close is your nearest refinery? I've seen it actually be MORE close to the refinery in Anacortes, WA than it was in outlying areas...??

Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Warbird on November 05, 2008, 11:02:22 PM
To clarify (and just so you don't think I'm some sort of whacko smiley_dunce )... 
local market prices are controlled by the refineries by manipulating 2 key items; those being, deciding what to refine (ie. not enough gasoline and heating oil), and where to ship to (ie. not the local market).  I am not saying this lightly.  I have watched this for more than 20 years.  My first degree is an Associate of Applied Sciences in Petroleum Science Technology.  I worked in Prudhoe Bay and in natural gas fields.

Our state government has questioned the refinery owners about local prices.  IMO, their answers have been weak and lacking.  They exemplify what is wrong with what the "free market" principal has been turned into today.

So...  that is why fuel is so expensive up here.

Universal -   Diesel  $2.82 ga        Gas $1.96 gall          these prices falling daily past 30 days 8)

Anybody remember what fuel prices were when crude was $62 barrel the last time. I don't remember them being this high then. Are refining costs going to be the next issue with prices?

Also, anyone know much about Universal oil. They have been taking over the Citgos in this area. I googled and found Universal lubricants up in northern Ohio. I don't know if that is the same outfit. I have'nt bought their fuel yet, even though they are cheaper. I was wondering if Hugo Chavez changed the name to throw us off. I don't buy Citgo just for that reason. However, I still see Citgos around yet. So I don't know what the deal is.

$2.179 for 87 octane here in Russell.


Some seem to think that it will drop to less than $1.00 here, by the end of the year.
I don't know.  I like the way it's been going,  but it still makes me think they're up to something.
We have one station nearby the usually drops their price in 20¢ increments.  But, they are still at $2.409 for some reason.

I suspect that gas prices have bottomed out. Yesterday, on Turkey Day, we drove about forty miles south on I-35 and the traffic was very heavy and all those big Yukons, Explorers, and Tahoes were back out in force and traveling at over 80 MPH. We are getting started on the next gas crisis just like we did back in the 1980's after the last shortage.

We forget those high prices so fast and the things that caused them.  :)

It is also worth remembering one of the big reasons for this price drop is the large speculators have been pushed to the sidelines by this financial crisis. If the financial mess improves, those money managers may again see we are using too much foreign oil along with OPEC planning to reduce the flow and we could very well see another explosion in prices.

This would be a good time to fill those tanks and even contract ahead for next year.

With ethanol at 10%, the gas is about $0.10 cheaper a gallon around here. I go to the straight gas, no ethanol if I can conveniently.  Get 10% better mileage with no ethanol gas.

It was a Mobil station.  All the pumps had it added.  I am guessing they want to use it up and are pushing it on the public?  I will have to check the other stations in town.

I will forgo the link, Yahoo this morning had a bit on gas $ and it could hit .99 in the mid west, $1.25 soon.  The last time we saw that was 1999.  That would put some FF member at a young age of 4.

It's getting hard to find straight gas up here ::) It isn't any cheaper when it's 10% ethanol.... what's the deal ???

We pay the same for a product that has less shelf life and doesn't perform as well. ???

The price of gas implies a glut on the market and there could be 10% less glut if they kept the darn ethanol for someone who wants to use it
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: Ron Wenrich on December 06, 2008, 06:38:50 AM
There is a subsidy for putting ethanol into the gas.  I think its 50¢/gal, which would come out to a 5¢ difference.  Right now, there is only a few cent difference in the price between the 2 different types of gas.  

In my area, those cheap prices usually are for the 10% ethanol blend.  My gas mileage went down when they brought them in.  Gas mileage also drops when it gets cold.  

We're down to $1.79, but they're down to $1.61 in some areas close by.  

Oil has dropped to $40/bbl.  
Title: Re: Whats Gas Prices In Your Area?
Post by: SwampDonkey on December 06, 2008, 08:32:48 AM
Now they produce a diesel additive here that they use in city buses and say it increases mileage by 20 %. I can't think that it would be much different than ethonal, maybe.  ::)

The price difference in octane here is wider than in Maine. In Maine it is generally 0.10 ¢ per gallon difference. In NB it's 0.16 ¢ to go to mid grade, then 0.23 ¢ from Mid to High grade. A 0.39 ¢ spread instead of 0.30 ¢ as in Maine and a lot of Maine Fuel is coming from St. John, NB.  It's the same approach with Natural Gas, if the Maritimes is the source our prices we pay subsidizes export costs. ::)

There is something wrong with the math I think here. Back when our dollar was worth $0.65 US and a barrel of oil was $40 the price at the pump was around $0.67/litre for regular gas and that was 8 years ago. Or am I mistaken and it was down to $25 a barrel. It couldn't be though because I remember the oil sands back then where being worked and they said it was only profitable at around $40 a barrel. Sure is cornfusing.  ::)

I think it should take quite a drop here tomorrow. Isn't it below $40 a barrel now? Gotta go check.

Nope, I guess it went up above $45 today. You know it used to be, it would move just pennies, now we see it moving by several dollars the last 8 years. It's become a big game, if we need it, it's there, it's not like we have to go looking tomorrow because all the wells are dry today. Just need to open the tap. That's what don't make sense. Sure we'll run dry some day, and we don't need to be wasteful now. But this yoyo BS is enough already. Those that are producing it want to sell it as bad as those that want it.

Prices fluctuate quite a bit from place to place.  Reg is 1.659 here, 1.569 in B'ham Alabama, and I bought it for 1.449 on the Alabama side of the Fl/Al line last nite.  Passed up one place that was 1.419 'cause the line was 3 deep.  I ain't sittin' in line for 3 cents! ::)

Our 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager usually get's 23mpg at 75mph straight and level.  Last night, after filling an almost empty tank with 10%, it was hovering between 24 and 25mpg according to the computer.  It is an E85 ready vehicle.  I'm wondering if that makes it get better mileage on 10%, since the computer is set up to adjust to it. ???

May not be the pump.  If you remove the hose and hold it down close to ground level, then squeeze the trigger, you can get about a cup of gas without turning on the pump. Next guy who turns on the pump pays for enough gas to refill the hose ;D Two or 3 such visits would yield enough fuel to run my old whizzer motorbike for couple of days....When I was a kid, this trick sorta fell in the same category as stealing watermellons ::)

$0.778/10/litre this morning. At the same time oil dropped yesterday to $42 and change. I suspect a dip in gas prices next week if trading continues to hammer at oil prices. This is from news of supply from the US.

One of the pickups was a parts truck that I plan to make into an extended cab The 306 is basicly stock .  It has a varnished oak box  with a hydraulic tail gate.    The 509SC has a 306H cab because the 509 was missing the doors. I raised the cab 9inches to clear the fenders . It will be a oneton whenever I get it finnished.  All of them are 48 and 49 model years.

Not quite as good...

Good one MM!  ;D
Now it's where someone comes out and pumps the gas for you.
Used to be someone would  (1)pump your gas (2)check your oil (3)top off fluids (ws washer, pwr steering, transmission) (4)wash your windows (front,rear and sides).
As Stonebroke said, full service is dying out.

I predict a short ride, by next month things will be back to normal, but prices won't fall back for awhile and gradually because the market is testing response to consumption. The test is, will things keep bustling along or cause a down swing on the economic recovery?

There is currently a 60 cent difference in regular gasoline vs diesel.   It was either last year or two years ago diesel was briefly about 5 cents cheaper.

I never really understand why the difference fluctuates so much - I know, supply and demand, but seriously, why?

I never really understand why the difference fluctuates so much - I know, supply and demand, but seriously, why?

I've wondered the same thing often, even with supply and demand taken into consideration, diesel requires less refining so why is it so much higher now?  I haven't driven a diesel pickup for quite a few years but when I was it was cheaper than gas.
SD, I think it's gonna take a little longer than you think for the simple fact that come Aprilish we get to start burning any where from 150 to 200 gallons a day in the field, it's never cheaper once that starts.   :-\

You'll burn up the expensive oil in your tractors and then I can buy the cheaper stuff. All has to work through the system. Although, the increase is quicker than the down swing because of uncertainty. We'll be back to 0.99/litre by June. :D

Gas is 3.45-3.49 here.Just a short story about off road diesel. Not many places have it now at the pump. I go to a small store to get it.On road diesel is 3.87 there.Their off road is 3.77 now.  :o Use to be 40-60 cents less. Now I have a hard time getting it,they are sold out alot of time.Times are hard now,and people come in with their 5 gallons cans for their furnace.They can afford $30-60 but not the $350 at once or more for 100 gallons to be delivered to their homes. He went up on the price because of the demand. last time I bought it was 50¢ cheaper,but he was out,so I had to buy on road and spend $10 more.

SwampDonkey,here in my area the oil companies will not delivery any less than 100 gallons.  ;) Some have 200 gallons tank some have 250 gallons. Most can't afford 100 gallons let alone to fill their 250 gallon tank.Would be impossible to have a 100 gallon tank here.Would have to run it dry each time so the oil company will come.

I was getting groceries today and noticed a sale sticker 4.99/lb on all chicken breast meat, everything in the display however was $8-10/lb. I asked where the sale chicken was and the meat guy said it was sold out, but were substituting another brand. So I said, I'll take it and he went and put sale labels on the tray. I walked further along and I see turkey half breast with bone in and skin, 2 lb trays. I see no label and I got a little cocky and said the meat guy musta got discourage with the high price and never put the label on. :D  Meat is getting high, even pork is high and the pork farmers are still struggling. Paid about $16 for 3 lbs of chicken and over $12 for 2-1/2 lb of pork rib roast, $8 for 1-1/2 lbs of cross rib roast (beef). It's not that bad really when you look at what you get around these parts in a restaurant. Each of those roasts makes 4 or 5 meals for me and that chicken will last me over a month. I don't usually eat big portions of meat. I'm not really complaining. But, the grocery bill between two stores was $160 bucks (2 weeks grocery for me). I refuse to deny myself whatever food I want. And I buy mostly fresh stuff or frozen. And I have also decided I'm making all my own bread now. Made two loaves when I got home from shopping.  8) ;)

Cowboy Bob had to raise the price per head to haul cattle.  He's telling the farmers that if gas drops back to $3/gallon he'll lower the price to his old rate, but this is more than he can keep absorbing.  No one is happy, but they do understand.  It's the first raise in hauling he's had in five years, and it's not going in his pocket, it's going to the gas station.

Boy them arabs sure got us under them thumb don't they? Now they can tell us it is because old Mommor kadifi is on the way out is the reason fuel prices are so high, 125 yrs. ago it was because sperm whales were becoming scarce :D :D :D , I read about what swamp donkey is paying for something so simple as chicken, turkey & pork and all I can think it is a sad state of affairs for certain. So much of our money is going to these arabs and investors in oil futures, and all they have to do is turn the handle on the pump to let more out or turn it off. Hmmmm... there are only a limited amount of solutions to this problem and none are going to be easy to implement, but it would give me some satisfaction to see it happen in my lifetime.  :) For me the solution is to reduce my consumption and figure out how to live without having to spend my time paying for petroleum. Things like raise my own FOOD! And enough for my neighbors too if they want some... I'm just waiting for some new technology to be developed that will make petroleum for the most part obsolete, and anyone who thinks that won't happen is 100% mistaken... that is if we can vote for people to run this country who don't stand to benefit from high petroleum prices :D :D :D

I don't think it is that at all. Its the speculator that may live down the street from your or I or anywhere.  If they can make more money gambling on the future of fuel then it costs them to buy their own personal fuel, then they could care less what it costs everyone else or how high it goes.

I apologize for that Dan. Diesel is about $3.80 here and can be expected to keep climbing. What the price is though is really irrelevant unless we can to begin to discuss "WHY". This is not something we can control, it is something that at this time controls US, more that any one thing.

Diesel has been holding at $3.98 in my area, higher along the interstate.  During the summer, diesel generally holds with the high test gas prices.  Right now, they are about 10¢ lower, but they went up last week and diesel didn't.  I'm thinking the gas prices will come up to meet the diesel, while it holds steady for awhile.  $5 gas would mean oil at about $125/bbl.  Very possible.

This past week I took my 30 gal drum back to my oil distributor to get it refilled with AW 32 hydraulic oil. When I wrote the check I noticed the price was up slightly ($6.29 per gal vs. under $6.00 last time) and we had mutual complaint session about climbing oil prices. So I asked the guy if he was having any trouble with getting product and he laughed. Said there was oil inventory everywhere and lots of it.

I guess we have repealed the supply and demand rules for fuel and oil.

Saw diesel price of $4.159 yesterday.

I've been told there is a 10 cent difference in tax between the two states. Can anyone confirm that?

People here would kill to only pay what you guys do south of the border. Our prices changed again last night (they are gov. regulated and change every thursday night).

Regular Unleaded $1.364/L Cdn or about $5.45/US gallon (in US $$)

Diesel $1.312/L Cdn or about $5.24/US gallon (in US $$)

Did you guys catch that special on CNBC the other night talking about the oil sands in Alberta. The CEO of Shell Oil Canada estimates there is 2 Trillion barrels of oil reserves there. That's 8 times the amount of reserves in Saudi Arabia, who is currently the largest producer and holder of traditional oil reserves. I don't remember my history too well. Why was it we (the USA) didn't take Canada way back in the early days of establishing this country?  ::)

Hey MM ... we would have still let our FF friends live up there.  :) I just want access to the oil, hunting, fishing, timber, etc, etc just without the high prices. ;D

The oil play down in Eastern TX I think you're referring to is the Eagleford Shale. It's good but no where near the size of the Alberta oil sands. The Bakken Shale up in North Dakota and Montana is a pretty big deal as oil goes though. Supposed to be a little less that 5 Billion barrels of oil in that one. I think the U.S. Geological Survey Dept. said that it was the biggest oil reserve they had ever mapped in the lower 48 in U.S. history. There's also a new oil play brewing on the North line of Louisiana and South line of AR over by Pineywoods place. I think they're calling it the Brown Dense. They're leasing and drilling now. Before we know it Pineywoods is going to be driving a new Escalade and rolling on chrome d's.  ;D Maybe not. But it'd be cool if he was sitting on top of it.

Just picked up a $120 and change of gas today. It was at a T&A station on I-94 for $3.88. Here in Jackson it's $3.99. I always take as many empty gas cans as I can when I travel outside of Jackson County. Today I filled the car and four cans. $3.00 saved at one fill up doesn't seem like much, but at the end of the year it adds up. I was not the only one with that idea. All twelve pump lines had a minimum four cars each. Constantly.

Yeah Logdog, I'm sittin right on top of a ridge that runs north to south right through the middle of the brown dense formation. They say it's a deep formation, below 10,000 feet. The leasing guys have already been here. They wanted the 40 where my house and mill sits real bad. We did alright on the lease, but I'm not holding my breath on the drilling. There's been 2 or 3 deep exploratory wells drilled within a few miles of me, but everybody's being real close-mouthed about the results. Probably don't want to drive up the lease prices. There's bunches of gas wells all around me, 5 on the place here. But they are all old shallow wells that are just about played out. In any case, I'm planning on keeping on driving a 93 Toyota pickup and sawin logs with a 95 manual woodmizer.

Regular is $4.05 and Diesel is anywhere from $4.05 to $4.15 a gallon in the northeastern part of Illinois.  Down in Cook County, it is running about 20 cents a gallon higher with all of the added taxes.  Just over the border in Wisconsin, it is about 10 cents a gallon cheaper.  Gentlemen, those of you with welding knowledge and pickups might want to start doing some conversion work to the wood gas powered trucks.

We have an over abundance of natural gas and the customers on it right now are paying 15 times the distribution cost of other customers to the south and west. So having all your gas home doesn't drop the price, it sometimes raises it. :D :D

Pineywoods ....

That's awesome news. I knew you had to be real close to the Brown Dense. I'm following the progress of the wells that have been drilled. You want me to keep you in the loop? I hope you used a good exhibit document with your lease. It's all about the details. Congratulations! Somehow I knew you wouldn't be going for the Escalade. I'm still sawing on a 95 Woodmizer too.  ;)

Hey what do you guys think about this Investigative Committee Obama has formed to investigate why oil and gas prices are going up? Uhhhhh ... can you say "devaluing the U.S. Dollar, drilling restrictions in the gulf, ....."? I don't think we need a committee to figure that one out.

Don't think so because there was a news item just 4 days ago about it. The problem is, the bar has been raised a level in order to drill. It ain't status quo. Six permits have been issued according to this report.

http://www.cges.co.uk/resources/articles/2011/04/14/deep-water-drilling-resumes-in-the-gulf-of-mexico

BP has the go ahead to reopen 10 wells for this summer.

Title: Re: Whats Fuel Prices In Your Area?
Post by: LOGDOG on April 26, 2011, 09:23:06 AM
SD ...

Six permits have been issued, though the US government has yet to remove completely the drilling moratorium imposed following the Macondo well blowout in April 2010.

.....and it also says in the first paragraph it's being done on a "project by project basis".

Now when you consider that there were 57 rigs drilling in the Gulf of Mexico when the BP well blew out and those were 57 rigs of the 347 total rigs being operated offshore globally, you're talking about pulling 1/6th of the world offshore oil production off the table. Now we're behind the curve with that lost production. Bringing 6 or even 16 of them back online isn't going to bring that curve back into place. We need to be drilling like we were and then some - pronto!

We also need to start edging up our interest rates gradually to show the world that we intend to protect the value of the dollar as the World's reserve currency. Strengthening the dollar would in itself bring oil prices down because that is the instrument by which oil is valued globally. Enough of this QE1 and QE2 bologna that's trying to inflate this economy.

It hit me as ironic last night that there in 2008 we experienced a visual hyperinflation where we literally saw prices on fuel, groceries, and pretty much anything that traveled via truck to the point that it became unsustainable. People just couldn't afford it and the bubble broke. Reflected by housing of course because when you have the choice of filling your gas tank and going to work to buy food so you and your family can eat OR pay your mortgage, well ...they opted not to pay their mortgage. So then we enter a period of severe deflation. Oil goes from $147.00 / barrel to the $30's, Nat Gas goes from $14.00/mcf to the $2.++'s , housing prices come down in areas that were overinflated, food prices come down. Now, after the deflation you could afford to run your household on the budget you may have had set up prior to 2008, if you had a job of course. Then the Fed comes along and decides we're going to bail out this one and that one with our tax dollars, then they're going to do round one of quantitative easing and then round two, all meant to re-inflate the economy. Well it's working, if you call driving prices on oil, gas, food, etc back up "working". How ironic is it that the Fed creates debt to buy debt (Treasuries) to artificially drive interest rates down to encourage people to borrow money that they otherwise wouldn't, so that they can re-inflate this economy back to the point where it's too expensive for those living on a fixed income to live?

QE2 ends June 30th. We'll see if they bring on a 3rd round. Let's hope not. If they do, look for the dollar to become even weaker and oil prices to go even higher. If they don't then we're likely to see interest rates begin to move upwards which would strengthen the dollar and bring commodites down.

All that "Committee" is that Obama is setting up is a dog and pony show for voters so he can say, "Yeah, and when gas prices rose above $4.00 I created this committee..." It's horse poo and a reflection of big government which is the last thing we need right now. It's happening right before our eyes and those who are willing to to see it for what it is will. There will always be those who won't.

Right here is part of the problem: http://www.usdebtclock.org/

Lack of drilling is the other part.

CNG is $1.75/gallon here. I'm considering adding CNG fumagation to my Ford Diesel. I read an article about a guy that did this with his Duramax diesel and is getting 38 mpg. It basically injects CNG in with your diesel and causes it to burn hotter/cleaner. If you're out in the boondocks where there is no CNG to re-fill your tank, you can run on diesel. Your mileage will just be what it was normally without CNG.

One other thing I left out as far as the causes for prices being high is "consumption". The USA is still 5% of the world's population using 25% of the world's oil supply. We drastically need legislation and tax incentives that would encourage the heavy truck traffic to convert to motors that use CNG or LNG. We have hundreds of years of supply right here in the USA and it would put U.S. citizens to work.

Just my two cents this morning.

I read an article tonight online that said they expect gas prices will drop 50 cents per gallon in the next few months. They're expecting oil to head back to $80.00/barrel in the next few weeks. I'll believe it when I see it. Although, if the job numbers don't start improving it could pull prices down. Or for that matter, if one of these other countries that's been having currency problems ends up on the rocks with their currency again, the dollar could gain strength and that too could bring the price of oil down.

My uneducated guess would be that the price will fall. It's not sustainable with the way the economy is world wide. I think there are other countries in far worst shape. Ireland at one time was riding a wave, and I think the bottom has fallen out from under it these last couple years. I don't know what the Chinese are paying at the pump, but I bet it's crimping their middle class a bit. I don't hear much about Russia, but it seems that country needs a kick in the butt.

I'm finding it $3.79 steady here. Went to the big city,they still want 3.95 for it. Drove by one place and saw the paper the next day and they wanted 3.59. Never noticed it.  ::)  This was the same day we went to the big city too.

Diesel has dropped here to $3.76/ gallon at the Valero stations. Amazingly, many of the other stations are still charging $3.99/$3.94. I want to say regular unleaded was like $3.67 last night when I drove by the station.

Se MN diesel price 4.03 Gallon
           87 octane  3.87 Gallon

Thinking that prices are unsustainable but that at the same time the petro companies are going to break our backs if we don't find a way to intruduce some competition into the fuel industries.   I'm thinking that any kind of private industry such as our renewable fuels should not be hindered by legislation, and that the oil co's should be banned from buying controling shares of the ethanol and bio diesel stocks.

Yeah, last Thursday it dropped 3 cents a litre, and Friday (next day) it went back up 3 cents/litre. Thursday this week it when up another 2 cents.

All it means is the casual driving gets cut back, but the working man/woman still has to go to work and pay every day. Always the working stiff taking to blow. But, I don't know if the casual driving gets cut back much, I still see folks who will go all the time, price don't mean a thing.

There is a big difference in Diesel prices along the eastern seaboard. ::)
Maine and Mass were at the 4 dollar mark while New Jersey was 3.69 and they pump it full service for you. I guess that is a requirement or law there. ???
Virginia south of D.C. Was holding proud at 4.19!
Just across the line in North Carolina the price drops to 3.67 but I had to pay 3.97 for
 it a hundred miles down the road when It was needed in the same State.

I am a firm believer in profit not being a dirty word but something greasy is going on.
Does Jersey still makes her profit having to pay da pumpers?

Oh, and the tolls, or should I say trolls?

I kinda wonder about the price of gas. A big gas station about ½ hour from me is just about 10¢ more than we are. Been this way for more than a year now. We use to run the tank down when we knew we was going to the grand kids games or see the FIL. We went about 2 hours form here the other day,North, and passed a little small country store and they was cheaper than Augusta area. Gas is around $3.65 here,probably Augusta area is 3.73.

Just bought a diesel, now I'll be looking for best diesel prices. Saw 2 yesterday, 3.999 and another at 4.099. (I'm in tax and overspend New York) I'm thinking I might buy a big tank and get fuel delivered after maple season during it's traditional lowest price of the year. Just like I just bought 1600 gal home heating fuel on pre buy for my mother at $3.16 from my farm diesel supplier when the next lowest pre buy price was $3.599. My biggest problem will be large tank requirements. Over a certain size they now need a outer containment vessel and a roof.

All they need to do on the news is mention that the gas prices might go up and they will jump right away.

On the other hand when they start to drop they only drop a penny or 2 every few days.

 Carpooling to me is not an option , geographicly speaking it just not gonna work.  All merchandise is moved by truck today, all of it, they all burn diesel. The more the fuel cost the more it needs to cost us, I don't see how car pooling will get that to be lowered. Car pooling may be part of the answer but IMO , it is a very small part. The economy and the buying power of the people are strangled by the high cost of fuel/gas.

Just that back in the 50's when we didn't think gas prices were high ($0.33 a gallon if no gas war going on) it was when $1/hour was many a working man's wage.  Then gas was 1/3 of an hours wage.
I'm thinking comparing that to today's wages and just using $10 an hour, that the price for a gallon of gas hasn't changed since the days of "cheap" gas by very much.
True, we went through some years when gas price relative to wages was very cheap, and now not so much. Just sayin...;)

Apparently, our Alberta oil would be $20 a barrel cheaper than what we currently use from overseas at the Irving refinery. But we only have pipeline as far as Montreal, as usual for us Maritimers. But I can't see why we would need it, we have Hybernia in Newfoundland, which would be cheaper to extract on an oil platform wouldn't it? But, the Irvings don't want cheap, we found this out in the 70's. That's when they became lavishly rich off oil speculations. By the time the oil got to shore in Saint John it may have have been traded 3 times.

The price of fuel in California must have something to do with their budget shortfalls.  As long as the rest of us don't have to pay for their shortfalls I'm good with it.  The problem is that mentality spreads east to infect like minded bureaucracy.

We've already been infected up here a long time ago. I think Cal. probably caught the bug up here. :D :D  And Irving still shipping it by rail from Alberta $20 a barrel cheaper than from the Saudis. We had another big dig into the purse when the latest bunch got voted in to the legislature. The bunch before got us real deep in the hole, had to come from someone. ::)

After this over run with the Lepreau nuclear refurbishment, I see Quebec has decided to shut the doors on their oldest reactor. They have lots of hydro anyway and if memory serves me, Montreal is a declining population.

I heard on the news that gas has hit a high in California of $4.61/gal.  That's an avg price.  It went up 47 cents this past week, due to a refinery shortage and another that lost power.  National avg is $3.81.

Right around $3.75/gal at most places around here. I saw half a dozen stations selling at $3.57/gal in Annapolis, MD and on the other side of the bay bridge this past Thurs.

We haven't built a new refinery in the US in over 30 years.

When you have the reserve currency of the world, and when oil sales globally are settled in that currency, and you start printing that currency like there is no tomorrow....... this is what you get.

Title: Removing Ethonal from this crappy gas
Post by: calw1izl on June 22, 2013, 05:54:52 AM
Just thought I would share my work around for this crap we are getting for gas here.  I used to work as a contract/custom spray applicator in the earlier years as well as doing my own crop care needs.  When looking for a "easy/clean" way to separate the ethanol from today's choice of gas, I remembered the chemical inductor tanks we used to use for mixing, blending and introducing chemicals prior to loading the spray rigs.  These are available in as small as 10 gallon, all the way up to the larger 110 gallon cone bottom units.  I called one of my past suppliers (GVM in Bigglerville, PA) and ordered up a 15 gallon cone bottom ($75) and also got the mating steel stand (a bit more than the tank) then the necessary couplings to come out the bottom and end up with a nipple capable of fitting a 3/4" nylon re-inforced hose to, to allow filling the gas containers back up.

I have been using this now for the past several weeks, following the suggestion of adding 2.5 oz. of water per gallon of gas being converted, mixing well for a bit and then allowing to settle out.  Works like a charm and you can see the separation begin almost immediately.  I let it sit for maybe 30 - 45 minutes and the draw off the water and ethanol.  I then put the remaining fuel back in the gas cans to which I have added 1 - 2 oz of octane booster as well as a touch of marine grade stabil and an ounce of SeaFoam.

Works like a charm  8)

Even the idea of a "gallon of gas" being a standard unit is a bit off.  Measuring fuel by weight is more accurate (honest?) than measuring by volume.   :)
Title: Re: Whats Fuel Prices In Your Area?
Post by: grweldon on July 18, 2013, 02:43:58 PM
Yep... after work I'm going to stop by the station and buy 60 pounds of gasoline!

Actually, it appears the density of gasoline is not an absolute like water, it varies with variants in the the refining process. "The density of gasoline ranges from 0.71–0.77 kg/l... with higher densities containing more aromatics" according to Wikipedia (no citation included) so it doesn't appear that buying by weight would be any more accurate as buying according to volume, even though volume changes with temperature.

To me, out here - NOT :o

I regularly see gas station prices change twice a day from 3 to 5 cents at a time.  More often, 5 cents on the up swings, 2 or 3 cents on the down swings.  One station is generally lower in the morning, goes up in the afternoon and then back down the next morning.  Really? :-[  They aren't delivering that often to affect the price.  Someone in HQ is sticking it to the commuters.  Good price in the morning, I'm late for work, I'll catch it on the way home - then on the way home, ouch!

In WI, the price cannot change more than once per day. Maybe one reason that it became the law is to stop such wild price changes.
Although the big jumps up and little jumps down seem to be typical here too. ;)

Seems to be settled around $2.30/gal around CNY. I filled my car from 1/8 tank to full today for $29!!  8) I can't remember doing that since I was probably about 16-18. 6 months ago the same gas I pumped today would have been at least $50, probably a little more. This can't last but sure is sweet for now!  ;D

Wow, that's rough. Equates to about $4/gal.  :-\ In 2012 my wife and I went to Ireland and IIRC gas was 2.38€/l! Crazy! Hope you get some relief soon.

If you're looking at a diesel to save money...forget it. Especially since the EPA decided that diesel fuel needed to be something other than a byproduct of producing gasoline.
If you're looking at a diesel to pull loads with, they can't be beat.

Prices have gone up 10 to 12 cents this last week - Up to $2.19 now  They are blaming it on the Iron Workers going on strike and one of the refineries shut down in Southern California.  Somehow that affects us up north...

Got as low as $1.91 at some stations. Took 7-10 days to come back to $2.29 yesterday when I filled up.  Don't see anything different on the global scene - as much chaos as when the price was coming down.  Perhaps the OIL companies said enough of this and raised price of raw materials - their margins are only in the hundreds of millions, not billions right now!  The price has to be high enough to support the new technology being used in extracting the "tough oil", that's their line, not mine.  And "someone" doesn't like Alaska right now, or the Keystone project. The Saudi's love that tact. How long until we rely on foreign oil again?

Keep seeing various articles about the oil prices staying down on a global basis.

One is this one..
http://gcaptain.com/worlds-biggest-oil-trader-says-slump-resume-u-s-supply-grows-dramatically/

Another, can't put my finger on it, where the saudi's were dropping their price to keep attracting their oil business in the Asia countries and maintain market share.

Found it:
http://gcaptain.com/saudi-arabia-cuts-oil-prices-fight-asian-market-share/

This gcaptain site is a very interesting one on world wide shipping news with plenty of pics.

One recent article on a car ferry that went aground, and listed badly. Finally managed to get it upright, and to a port to offload the "cargo" of luxury cars and the debate now is "junk them or repair them".

Post by: LeeB on February 11, 2015, 04:21:12 AM
The Saudis can't lay all the blame on the US shale play for the oil surplus. They have been upping their production too and have been carrying out an extensive workover and drilling program for the last few years to maintain and increase their own productivity. The drop in prices isn't all golden for them either. They are now trying to renegotiate prices with the drilling contractors on long term contracts. I don't have any hard numbers to back this up. Only what I have seen while working in the region.

Our new government jumped our fuel tax again with their first annual budget, so it added 3 cents to a litre. I'd say the feds added a lot of tax the last few years to. The last time oil was $48 a barrel gas was 79 cents a litre before Katrina. Now that that hike has been seen as a sham (even at the time) and prices settled back we see taxes have added 30 cents to gas. People that don't get gas and tax rebates for working expense will continue to cross to Maine for their leisure driving gas. $2.49/gal in Houlton, Maine.

Diesel, at the corner gas station is $3.27 a gallon, but a lot of places have it now for just under $3.00. Interestingly, I haven't filled my bulk tank for years and called a couple places for a price. At 500 gallons it's $2.60 a gallon, and at 600 gallons it drops to $2.20. So I guess it's time to fill our 550 gallon tank back up, and the log loader, the bobcats, the excavator, and lawn mower... I should have checked sooner. I just didn't feel like gambling that the price would drop as soon as I bought it. Last time I checked bulk fuel was as much as I could buy it at the corner store. Sure will be nice to stop using 5 gallon jugs...

Troublesome to learn that one refinery has a maintenance problem and it affects the fuel supply (and prices) immediately in five states (MI, IN, IL, OH, WI were named and the refinery is a BP in Indiana).
Wouldn't take a rocket scientist long to figure out where that weak spot is in the belly of a big country and its infrastructure.
Our prices have jumped 60 cents a gallon in less than two days.

And I agree, it is GREED.

     I filled up 2 days ago in Port Arthur, Tx. at $2.18 a gallon.  Good for me, but not for my son, a trucker hauling crude oil.

Yup, the lower fuel prices are not good for my Grandson either.  He has not been called to come back to work for a couple of weeks.   :-\

Here is a link to a feeble attempt to cover up what happened to cause the price spike. We are at the mercy of those who just decide to cover their behinds and not risk getting caught with less profit.

I saw this at a station locally today for the first time. Remember when diesel used to be really cheap? And kerosene the same way?

For highway Diesel I just paid $2.849, the lowest by far in years, and a week ago, when I picked up a replacement 150 gal. farm diesel tank (the old one had rust in it and I replaced it before I had a major leak) and I was told that farm diesel had just dropped to $2.099 that morning. Unfortunately, both of my tanks are too full to take advantage of the good prices. My 150 gal tank is only down about 9", and my 300 gal tank at another location is only down 8". They won't deliver less than 100 gal, there is a hefty surcharge if you order and they can't fit at least 100 gal.

I have always been puzzled as to why fuel prices always end in 9/10 of a cent. Who started that anyways? It doesn't fool anyone.

Yep, as advertised, it is impossible to buy exactly one gallon because you could not pay for it.  I have wished for many years that they would get rid of the farce.

If the IRS can round up or down to even dollars, why can't fuel be rounded to even cents and get rid of the 9/10.

Lynn, just think, they would have to reinvent the gas pump to get ride of the extra digit. bg

Regular 87 octane is priced at $2.659 here in Russell.

I have always been puzzled as to why fuel prices always end in 9/10 of a cent. Who started that anyways? It doesn't fool anyone.

True or not, I don't know but I was told years ago that the 9/10 was added to eleviate gas station attendants from fudging with the till or with the tanks to maybe get a little free gas or a few $$$.
