    Mostly because automobile travel is heavily subsidized.

    Solar energy is huge here in California (even for individual homeowners)... considering the amount of abundant sun we get. Heck, I even see some apartment buildings installing them. As far as wind energy, I don't think anyone wants a big windmill as part of their house... unless one lives in Holland. lol. Our wind farms are in locations where wind is optimal.

    Gas Prices are on a Mysterious Climb

    for many, mass transit just isn't an option... for most of rural America, it's flat-out nonexistent and doesn't necessarily even make financial sense to implement.

    heck, even in Jersey, living right across the river from NYC, one of the major train services wasn't running 24/7 for months after Sandy (and it's easy to say just don't stay out partying, but I imagine it really screwed over a lot of night shift workers). not to mention the fact that gas/oil prices are tied in with mass transit costs anyways (higher operating expense == higher passenger fares)

    all that said, I myself only fill up my tank like once/month and I have no clue what gas prices are.

    I don't live where you do. But I suggest you go to a local electrical supply store, and they can tell you easily. They'll probably let you choose from multiple different systems, and charge you an outrageous price to install it.

    Frak, I can walk down to the auto supply store and buy roll-up or fold-up solar units made for various uses -- including recharging batteries or supplying extra power for boats.


    edit: for that matter, both Home Depot and Lowes carry a number of solar systems.

    I'll give you a guided tour. You pay for gas lol.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Gor...Pass_Wind_Farm

    And many of these wind farms are not a new thing... they have been around for decades. They generate a great deal of power... a lot that power goes to homes. Certainly better than that leaking reactor at San Onofre.

    http://www.gosolarcalifornia.ca.gov/

    We lead the nation in solar panel installation too... whether it is for homeowners or larger facilities that generate wide spread power. Almost 1500 MWs state wide. I'm not sure if the subsidies and rebates are still in effect for homeowners... but I believe they are.
    knock, knock

    I'm not talking about government spin.

    I want you to show me a company that is in business to offer solar and wind systems for residential use. Something that 'joe blow' can install on his home.

    What government spin? Many of those panels are manufactured by the private sector.

    http://www.solaria.com/

    And an article from Fox News out of all sources lol...

    http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2011/09/...ndustry-booms/

    A lot of these panels are available for any homeowner. You can install them yourself or get hired help.

    from the sounds if it, it's not financially worthwhile unless you're using major electricity and/or live in an area where it's bright and sunny year-round. and presumably, the longer you wait, the better/cheaper/more efficient the technology will get. (that's why I've been holding out as long as possible to buy a new tv I know mine is on its last legs, but the longer I wait, the better tv I'll be able to get)

    living in the mid-Atlantic with my $75/month gas/electric bill, I don't really see an impetuous. I have heard of some utility companies basically offering to "rent" your roof. they install solar panels, the power generated goes back to them, but you get a discount on your bill.

    if I were building a new home, though, it's probably something I'd consider.

    People ARE. They had rebates and discounts for people who did... California has had a record number installed on homes. They are rated highly because they also reduce the electricity bill and that's always a good thing.

    What's the issue here?

    It is financially worthwhile when there are incentives. The government may have to step in, but the government isn't big bad and evil if they do. It's helping the industry along and to develop. Solar energy is getting more cost efficient and cheaper to install...

    Do any of you remember the last time you went inside the Gas station and paid for your Gas with Cash? I use my Debit card @ the Pump 24/7..I pump & casually glance at the other Pumpers seeing if they're Eye-Candy worthy then I'm out......…

    A couple of pages back GianCarloC said he goes inside the Gas station every other day to get 3 Hot dogs, extra Chilli and a 32oz Sprite. I was surprised he admitted that in this public forum…

    pumping your own gas is illegal in NJ, so I've got no reason to get out of my car... I'm usually busy screwing around on my cellphone or inputting my destination into my GPS.

    it's illegal in Oregon too.

    it was a law passed in the 1940's under the pretext that pumping gas back then was dangerous... since then, it's stayed on the books. every couple years it seems to come up for a vote, and New Jerseyans vote to keep pumping gas illegal because, well, it sucks. I'm nice and toasty and dry in my car on those cold winter days.

    I've heard justifications for it along the lines of lower insurance costs for gas station owners, and job creation since they've got to hire more attendants. we've still got some of the lowest gas prices in the country.

    In MA we have "self-service" and "full-service". The former means you pump the gas yourself while the latter means you have an attendant which charges you 20-cents more per gallon for his services. Course now, we have cash/debit/relative credit card vs credit card payments. You can save about 7 cents more per gallon if you pay with the former.

    That might be one of the differences between here and the West. (No, Springer isn't "here" but about 250 or so air miles...close enough, same region.) Didn't California have the first wind farms? I can't say that I've ever seen any kind of advertising for alternative energies, other than the geothermal alternative which is sometimes sent with my electric bill. Of course that's because THEY install it...and in nearly all cases the installation is more expensive than what one will ever get out of it.

    Though unlikely, it is possible that the gas station actually has the best hot dog chili in the area, or something. I've certainly stopped at gas stations which had some of the best fried chicken I find on the road.

    the law was passed in the 1940's, when everyone smoke and kids rode their bikes behind the fumes of the DDT trucks... so it's a distinct possibility.

    as far as I know, we don't pay any more in gas prices because of it, and no one tips except out of towners.

    Pumping your own gas in New Jersey is illegal?! Around here everyone pumps their own gas. It's not hard to do.

    Maybe it's illegal there because they don't think they have the ability to do it.

    Nah!

    They want to protect those high paying minimum wage jobs along the Jersey Turnpike.

    I'm willing to bet they won't wash your windows or check your tire pressure.

    Altamont Pass was the first wind farm I ever saw - was that the earliest? Being in a climate transition zone as it is, it's almost always windy there.

    back to topic

    Gas prices continued to go up nationwide, with the average cost of a gallon of regular, unleaded gas rising on Thursday for the 35th consecutive day.
    a hello to jockboy

    Maryland also remained above the national average on Thursday, with a gallon of gas increasing to $3.79. In Virginia, gas prices also rose to $3.69.
    people's discretionary income is dropping hard and fast as more and more goes into the tank - think i read recently that on avg. 4% of american's income goes to gas for their automobile(s)

    wonderful

    ^ good for you

    i actually have been driving a wee bit less

    sandy created lines/shortages which necessitated my not driving and i found it was not so bad

    but i take the subway to work and i have reduced my weekend jaunts - can't say that it's been a hardship

    but i've been paying $4+ for far too long and my thoughts are really for those who rely on gas to get to/fro most everywhere

    NYC is mass transit centric but is an outlier

    Yup sho nuff.... but the rest of America or might I say MOST of America has been slowly adjusting to this for a long time.

    Gas would have to go above seven dollars a gallon for me to change what i do.... just saying... and since oil sands become profitable at five fifty... i wont have to worry about it in my life.

    Today in KC was a prime example of what will happen to america should power disappear for a length of time. People have no clue how to handle any sort of diversity... even if it means just sitting it out for long enough. Gas and other prices are going to increase as time goes on if one uses the last 100 years as an example of what occurs with prices over time.

    Re: Reality Check: How are gasoline prices in your area?

    Gas here in southern Mississippi is around $3.649. It's a bit nuts, and I'm glad I filled up last week before it hiked up about 20 cents.

    I was really happy back in September of last year when prices sunk lower and lower. I put on about 8000 miles in 2 weeks so the lower the price, the better!

    One thing I think the US Government needs to do is raise fuel taxes. From what I understand, the rate hasn't changed in years, and we have a huge network of old roads that are crumbling and need maintenance. I'm willing to shell out a few more cents per gallon if that means higher-quality roads. Some of the best roads I've driven on are the toll roads in Florida. Tolls pay for maintenance and upkeep on those roads and it definitely shows. If we can do that for the entire country, we'll be made.

    I hear ya Fred... can I call you Fred?

    I hear ya ... we need to invest in our auto infrastructure instead of losing value mass trans systems. Until the US population hits some where north of a billion we wont have enough people to justify the vast distances requiring coverage. So in the next five hundred years we need to maintain those roads. The bridges are what concern me the most. Perhaps it is the amount of miles I have driven and the number of scary bridges I have driven over. Perhaps it just makes sense to repair what you own.

    3.77 here today...

    Chance I budget for 4 dollars a gallon and when it goes up to 4.50 I will budget for five. I pay a lot to drive my truck around when I use it instead of the Mazda. I am happy I have it and will enjoy its use in the mountains over the next several years. An investment, if you will.





    Yet yesterday in a foot of snow I was quite pleased to drive past all of the eco friendly jack asses who decided their Prius could handle a foot of snow. Morons.... I took great pleasure in rooster tailing snow onto their cars as I drove past. Then I went and helped folks in vehicles who had a reasonable expectation that they could drive home once freed from their snow drift. Those other folks I let wait the five hour delay it was for a tow. Maybe next time they will stay home. I have no patience for morons.

    2 Weeks!!! At least once a week fill up for me. Price is still $3.67 according to gas buddy -- staying inside today while the roads clear off.

    Locally we historically have some of the lowest prices but not now.

    I don't drive that much my daily commute is about a mile, and since I'm the only one of my friends who doesn't live with their parents, my place is usually the hangout spot.

    my car is 10 years old and just hit 60,000 miles.

    Yeah I know Jack Morons and essential personnel. The essential folks had vehicles and ability to be in the snow. However, as caller after caller reported on KMBZ they were told to come in or be fired. That is the kind of wanton lack of compassion and care you get from employers in red states who may fire at will and for no legit cause.

    FYI -- that includes the US Government who made their employees drive in and get stuck.

    I hope you are naive enough to believe all the people who call into talk radio.

    My good old Gasbuddy app on my droid gives me prices of (for regular unleaded lol):

    $4.19 - Mobil, Shell, 76
    $4.25 - Chevron (I prefer Chevron)

    It's all leveled off here in California... where some of the most expensive gas in the nation is.

    Full service gas, if it is offered in some stations here... is a lot more expensive... you have to basically pay for it. I guess that aspect of customer service is gone in many states... unless you pay for it.

    because it's required by law, I've definitely found that full service gas stations are different in NJ than other states.

    no window washing, no oil check, and no tipping. though most stations have the standard bucket/squeegee if you want to do it yourself.

    Odd since federally the executive board cancelled all federal offices... I guess all those 'other' federal offices are the ones you refer to....of course the offices are required to make the decisions on their own based on their services.

    Here is their current status so you might get some knowledge at some point before putting foot in mouth. The Fed did recommend all agencies close.

    But I get it, you are fiercely proud of your ignorant red state and their self serving policies on jobs and closures.

    I paid $3.59 today which was the cheapest in the area. Costco gas. Chevron is running at $3.81. Forget it.
