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.

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.

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.  >:( >:(

  I wood bet it's the same thing with Oil.  >:( >:(

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.

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.

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.

Iain, do you think it's cool for us to be paying these prices for fuel? :D >:( :(

If petrol/diesel continues to hike in price, we will see a lot more of Buzz-sawyer' type inovations. smiley_book2_page
