Price Of Fuel

Recommended Posts

I just paid 5.05 on long island ny, so that means it went over 2 dollars a gallon from this time last year. regular gas is up to 4.30 a gallon and heating oil is at 4.40 or even higher.I don't know how much more we can stand.

what the hell are our overpaid four flushing politicians doing about this anyway? i guess it hasn't hurt them too bad yet because if it had they would have done something immediatly like when they want to give themselves a raise. no hesitation then! it's just too bad you can't shut the trucks off for just one day. that would get everybody's attention. in 74 they lowered the speed limit to 55 and that would help. the trucks also shut down a bunch of interstates that got quite a lot of attention but that was a different breed of drivers back then. it's time for a big change in our gov't and it better happen shortly or we wont have anything left. maybe all our leaders should go out and do a days work (if they could) instead of just stuffing their own pockets. start doing what you're overpaid to do. i hope there is still a couple of good ones left.

Best deal I've seen out here today is $4.79/gallon at Maverick downtown and Pilot over in Carlin. At Pilot the price is the same for cash or charge.

Speed

Well no surprises here, diesel is now AU$1.86 per litre. Which converted is around US$7.32 a US gallon. Wanna start a pool to see who hits 10 bucks a gallon first!!! :angry:

Can some one please tell me again why the oil drilled an taken from our Country ie Alaska an the midwest is sold back to us @ OPEC prices?? What am I missing here? other oil pro. countries like Venezuela an even Mexico sell there domestic oil cheaper. Countries like Saudi Arabia sell oil at about .60 per gal. So don't you think if we sold our domestic oil cheaper then our imported oil, it would force the price of the imports down? I mean after all the oil does belong to the American People does it not? Was it tax payer money that paid for the pipe line in Alaska?

Can someoe help me out here?

$3.89/gal. here in Nashville for the Knock and Ping kind of fuel. What ever happened to the truckers cruising the DC Capitol building? Seems that was in the 70's. Can we get that back again?

Mike,

It seem like the people in this great country of ours have given up!? I mean look no matter what we say or do it does not seem too help. I think we're just waiting for 2012?

Took the antique Mack out of the garage to give her a bath yesterday. Real dirty from sitting for 2 - 3 years. Tried to get her back in, she just wouldn't start. Gas guage ready 1/2 full. Thought fuel filter might be clogged, so changed that out. Then, went and bought a couple gallons of regular fuel, just incase.

$20 bucks latere, she's back in the garage. That's 5 gallons at $4.05, the cheap stuff. She's sitting there for another couple years at that price.

Add to the fuel price, the insurance, plates and state inspection fees. Figures out to around $4.78+ per mile.

We were given a choice today, a 32 hour 4 day week or layoffs to cover the cost of fuel. I see a choice this winter, gas, food and mortgage or heating oil and electricty. My wife jokes and said we had better look for a good box, I told her it had better be filled with 45ACP

Our HNIC is pushing electric cars, my question is the power to charge them comes from oil or natural gas power plants. More electic cars , more demand for power , more emmisions from power plants..... so what is the gain?

seems that it will increase emissions when you include the manufacture of the vehicle and the batteries.

I see no boat this summer for fishing, our 55 chevy parked and me extremely p.o.ed , hell I'm alread driving a damn Focus!

I take my truck to D C to protest, but he's probley away on vacation or bowing to some A rab. Yea, I am bitter!! Paul
