my wife said that she had to drive to 5 different stations this morning.
and I'm on empty! ####!
damned hurricane :-( gas prices here in norway has skyrocketing
doesn't norway produce a decent amount of crude oil?
A lot of the stations are just putting up signs that they have no gasoline so they can stockpile it for when the price REALLY goes up in a few days...
prices went up here yesterday as much as 70 cents a gallon. theyve leveled off somewhat, but with a large disparity.
Iv'e seen gas today for 2.99/gal to 3.49/gal. both regular, self serve. Oddly enough, cheaper gas tends to be in the area of cheaper gas and more expensive gas in the area of expensive gas (although the neighborhood hasn't mattered, good, bad, rich, poor). if one schmuck is 3.49 so is the other schmuck. at the 2.99 price, at least it ranged in the area from 2.99 to 3.09.
the fifty cent difference too, was only maybe a mile apart.
even stations that are the same brand have big differences.
i paid 3.09 at shell this morning and a shell 1 mile away was 3.29 and a shell 2 miles away was 3.49. the 3.09 one was in the middle.
these companies are raping us.
Attorney general Elliot Spitzer is going to be looking into the dramatic gas price increases in NY.
he should! it's a bunch of BS, especially in NY where the tax on it is a percentage. least the state could do is back off on the tax somewhat and help us out for once.
where in NY are ya, Mike?
Western NY, outside Buffalo.
up in Ithaca, unleaded is still under 3 bucks (a bargain... yeah, right)
No problems in W. Mass yet.
Yet being the key word.
I gassed up all the cars when I heard on the news that prices would be skyrocketing soon. Caught probably the last $2.99/gal gas I'm going to see for a while.
But I've had pretty good luck so far finding gasoline at gas stations. Where are you looking?
Columbus, OH went from $2.40 a gallon to $3.09 a gallon. Overnight. Bastages . . . .
Yea, I had to fill up last night, & wa pissed... I was estimating my cash out of pocket expenses for gas, based upon last night rise from $2.40 -> $3.09 is going to cost me an additional $16, per week.
However, I havent had any problems finding gas at this point.
NW Ohio went from $2.52 to $3.09 over night. Some stations are at $3.19 now, so I assume the rest will follow shortly.
yes, but the prices are going up to 2$ per litre, we usally have 1.5$ per litre. and many car,truck, busdrivers and so on is disatisfied with that.
full tank with 2$ per litre multiple 50 to 60litre (tank cap) will be 100$ to 120$
Hayward, Ca is sitting at $2.99 for now, up from $2.71. My current job site is Menlo Park, about 45 minutes away, and there gas went from $2.81 to $3.25. Prices will be higher, I'm sure. We were already on such a tight budget, this is gonna hit us really hard. No shortages, yet, though, and there probably won't be on the west coast.
I've heard the head of the EPA relaxed sulfur and volatility standards temporarily, which will help the supply in afflicted areas, since it means that say, Georgia will be able to use California's fuel formulation, and apparently the president is considering using an executive order to lower taxes on gas nationwide. I hope it happens, and I hope it makes people realize who's REALLY been raking us over the coals on fuel prices. I hope that anyone in the flooded and surrounding areas that is gouging gets literally raked over hot coals, after being dipped in the product they're charging so much for. Taking advantage of the desperate like that sickens me.
one little thought i have, why are you many americans using big engined cars? 4.0 V8 engines, 3.0 V6 and so on? no wonder the gas being used fast
damn i love college
its a great time to be not driving
I hear ya.
Some stations around here jumped from $ 2.69 to $ 3.39 (some even higher) overnight.
I didn't check today except for two stations, but where I am in MA, one station stayed the same from yesterday at $3.11, and one station went from $3.15 to $3.19. I've seen a few that are a $2.99. So far nothing horrible, thank god.
