Now it is $3.49.
Now it is $3.49.
Strange... it actually dropped 10 cents here to $3.39 for a gallon of regular unleaded.
3.34 round these parts... guess your not "bumfucknowhereville" enough Bobby Mcgee...
Here ya go Bobby Mcgee ... our song.. and the best version of it tooo...
^KC, MO troll
LOL girls girls....
Janis does an alright version but I prefer a mans voice singing "Holding Bobby's body close to mine" although the gasoline gargling acid queen was manly looking she still had a 'gruff' feminine voice...
"Lord wont you buy me a Mercedes Benz" was her deal... for me...
Gas is still 3.32
And I love going to the birthplace of college basketball to hear them show out my name... it is inspiring...
Bob just ran out of tampons. Better make a quick trip to the Dollar Store.
$3.49 to $3.59, unless you can get it at the out-of-the-way corporate-only station, where it's $3.39.
$4.05 Mobil/76/Shell (all same price)
It's receded a bit from prior highs where it hit $4.19... and I still don't blame the black guy :)
Still around 3.32 but I get a ten cent discount for washing my car at Waterway each month.... still not bad... I know I would have screamed bloody murder then years ago but this aint ten years ago...
Regarding gas prices, metro Chicago is following right behind L.A. - $399.9 is average. Yesterday, I saw a few stations over $400.9, but the week is young. I'm "amused" that our prices are consistently above the national average. #-o
It is always his fault. He controls the entire nation and the economy... he can snap his fingers and lower gas prices to $2 dollars... lulz
I was only kidding ;)
Yea, California prices are always higher because we have strict standards on the grade of gas (which keeps air cleaner), plus a bit more in tax.
Demand is going up. Supply has plateaued.
You do the math.
Zero...just use transport....
CGY your gas prices whether it be diesel or electric are contained in your taxes. I like my transport it has followed me across the nation to 32 states with both dense and sparse population and even took me for a ride on a small island in the pacific...
not that I am against Transport but it doesn't meet all circumstances... AND we are woefully behind creating that infrastructure....
Paid 3.44 earlier today for a few gallons
The media would be going after the President by now for the extreme increase in gas prices if he was a republican.
Paid $3.53 early on Sunday -- saw the price had gone up to $3.69 early Monday morning.
It's $4.15/gallon here... for the lowest. And no I'm not blaming the black guy still... because the President doesn't control the gas prices. :rolleyes: The people that bankroll the GOP pretty much do.
$3.69 -- big jump.
Ironically, the numbers all changed the day Senator Wyden was here for a town hall meeting where he related that figures he's seen as part of his energy committee work indicated there was going to be a big jump and there wouldn't be any explanation for it at all, meaning it's almost certainly nothing but speculators using the system to profit off the rest of us.
$3.59 at the BP in Perry Hall, MD
Seems to be hovering around $3.67 for regular. I know the premium is over $4 now.
$3.59, $3.69... wish it was that cheap here lol. That was our low point a few weeks ago lol. Before GOP fundraisers decided to gouge the prices back up lol.
Depends where... some parts of LA aren't rich at all. And a lot of the wealth is still concentrated in a few hands here.
Many stations are @ $415.9 in suburban Chicago. Going up!
Gas prices are like the weather - we talk about them but, nobody seems to solve the problem. :mad:

However, James Earl Carter, said to be the worst president ever, encouraged us to seek alternative energy sources. :-$
Your buddy in the WH wants a 'gradual adjustment' when we are going through another phase right now. I expect prices to go up and then back down a little.
We're headed for sun, wind, and algae while the rest of the world will use oil. The end of good life in the USA.
Again this thread is about gas prices in our local areas... not Obama. the end of good life int he USA? What kind of generalities do right wingers here use? Nonsense.
$3.69 or thereabouts here.
What we need, to get a grip on gas prices, is some good old fashioned oil company trust busting ala Teddy Roosevelt...he was a republican wasn't he?
There has been no global growth in oil production since 2006, and there never will be again. Don't be fooled by announcements of new oil discoveries; most of them are only enough to satisfy global demand for a few weeks. No bandaid, such as busting big oil, is going to reduce prices.
Steady at $3.49 a gallon unleaded regular.
Springer, stop with your ODS. You're off topic.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch:
Countries like Germany and the Netherlands are using solar power and windmills. From what I hear, its a living hell and everyone wants to go back to using fossil fuels so they can do their part to fuck up the planet some more.* :##:

Q: Why does a male dog lick its genitals?
A. Because it can.
Q. Why do oil companies raise prices?
A. Because they can.
Ahhhhhh but why do Oil companies lick dog genitals?
Inquiring minds want to know!
Well, as someone living in the Republic of Exxon, let's not excuse them just yet.
seems like everyone is saying how prices are static
I paid $4.21 today :(
and the god damn squeegy had dirt on it - so when i "washed" my windows i actually was smearing dirty water all over my car - life is good ;)
So instead of jacking off to images of non-existent non-fuel powered cars -- where are the solar or wind powered home water heaters or easy to install passive solar home heating units?
price is still $3.69
when Obama finishes his golf lessons with Tiger and says no to the XL pipeline -- you'll be able to watch the price explode.
All republicans want is to destroy the environment by proposing a pipeline that would have next to no impact on reducing priecs. Yeah.. :rolleyes: Get real.
Oh I have... I know for a fact that there is no case to be made against me. Try again... maybe bring in some actual substance.Quote:
You might want to take a look at your previous posts on this thread.
i posted a link from nbc news - now one from abc news
32 str8 days increasing
4 month high
yet giancarlo keeps blathering on about that not being the case when all he would have to do is READ a post
or GOOGLE it
or just generally pay attention
too much to ask ?
If you didn't drive an SUV that mandates you use "premium gasoline", I am sure your gas price would be lower. I will at least admonish that said SUV is not a gas guzzler [I prefer reversing the noun 'guzzler' only when modified by "cum"] that gets less than 20 combined MPGs.
The intent of the Keystone Pipeline will not do anything to alleviate gas prices, chance1 and Jack_Springer.
As the economy gets better, gas prices get worse. When the economy gets worse, gas prices get better. At some point between $4.50-$5.00 range, gas prices begin to choke the economy. Until we remove ourselves from the dependency of oil (not just foreign oil), we will never escape the vice grip of gasoline prices.
Fortunately, the Obama Administration has mandated higher fuel efficiencies for vehicles. So we may inevitably pay for higher gas prices, but they will be offset by driving vehicles that drive further on a gallon of gas. As we continue to build new solar and wind energy power, we will use less oil and gas to power our electricity. These are all ideas proposed by the Obama Administration.
We must abandon oil. No matter how much less gas we use here in the United States, or how much we produce, it won't matter. China and India will consume every barrel of oil we don't consume, plus more. There is no U.S. economic policy when it comes to oil that will bring down oil prices. So long as China and India's economies continue to grow, we will see 2.5 billion people exponentially use more oil every year.
This is the reality we live in. That is mathematical fact based on 2.5 billion people needing oil versus the 330 million of us. The demand for oil has only begun. Any status quo of pumping out more oil and refining it for gasoline to drive our economy is irrelevantly suicidal.
"ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3 percent of the world's oil and about 2 percent of the world's energy."
