Gas prices.

Postby Digitalgypsy66 on Fri Sep 12, 2008 12:18 pm

The gas prices here (Hartsville, SC) have gone up about 40 cents in the last few days. The storm hasn't hit, and oil is dropping price on the commodities market(s).

Any change up north yet?

Haven't checked but the hurricane wont affect oil prices much, just gasoline. Apparantly refineries had to cut 25% of production because of IKE. The southern part of the country is supposed to get hit first in the supply crunch.

3.59 here still. I fully expect them to go up...esp with an almost direct hit on Galveston/Houston area.

I was on the road at a client in Quakertown, PA these past few weeks and the gas prices dipped to as low as 3.37! Needless to say i filled up on gas early and often.

$3.59 this morning at the closest station to me, $4.39 on my way home from work. But more refineries NOT LOCATED IN THE PATHS OF HURRICANES and more domestic oil production is not the answer :roll:

So some on the internets are saying we could see $10.00 a gallon depending how much damage is done to the refineries and how long they are offline.

Damnit.

I should have filled up on my way home tonight. I'll go and get it tomorrow and it'll be jacked up a dollar.

Unless all that oil gets refined into gasoline someplace that is not prone to being hit by disasters, say Missouri, Tennesee or Illinois, it won't prevent what is happening now. We have all our eggs in one basket for our domestic oil production and refining. That needs to change.

What would happen if someone with a nuke crossed the Mexican border and blew up Houston?

We already had filled up our vehicles yesterday. I also filled all my gas can storage for my generator I use for winter emergencies. Power companies are so reliable around here, wait I think work for one of them. We lost power yesterday for 4 hours and there was no real storm. transformer failure, that's about right run it until it fails. This country has serious energy problems.

BUMP


My TV has been telling me lately that gas prices averaged $1.65 back in January of 2009, around the 20th to be exact (not trying not to make this political)

At first I said "no way" and found this thread listing prices for September of 2008, right before the TARP bailout and whatnot.

After that prices did drop and then I found this thread: "Can someone explain gas prices?"

Thanks for clearing that up. I was pretty sure the prices dropped to promote the change.


OK, that last bit was a bit of editorializing, but the idea that the gasoline market is manipulated to lower prices before federal elections is not only mine and didn't just crop up this past cycle.

Here is a chart of gas prices for the past 6 years:

http://www.GasBuddy.com/gb_retail_price_chart.aspx?city1=USA%20Average&city2=&city3=&crude=n&tme=72&units=us

The channel that my TV was tuned into that was reporting this latest info regarding the rise in prices is suppose be a "Fair and Balanced" source. It doesn't sound like it, it's almost as if they are skewing the news a bit.

I'm trying to figure how they are skewing it when the chart says gas prices were around $1.60 in January 2009?

I'm sorry, to clarify, the news report was suggesting that gas prices were and had been on the cheap for a quite some time before January 20th 2009. The gasbuddy chart tells a different story.

You think you've got something to complain about.

Average price here in England per gallon is circa £6.50 or $10.29.

Apparently the price per barrel on the Chicago Market is way lower than the price per barrel on the New York Harbor, and that is making gas prices around our area pretty wacky. Apparently, some of the stations in Pgh are having their gas trucked in from Ohio (bought from the Chicago Market), which is why some places are around 3.70, and some are still at 3.49

Yeah in Scottdale, where I live, they are all $3.69.

I fill up in Bentleyville and/or Smithton Pilot stations for $3.49
