    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.
    Move if you're not happy.

    Federal employees were required to report for work on Thursday morning. Not sure what you're trying to pull here.

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

    Federal Employees were not required to work if their agency head, locally in KC, made the call to stay home. The FEB recommended closure. The KC agency heads made their own choices not the Federal government. I, for instance, told 253 to stay home. You really should not delve into things you 'think' you know. It always embarrasses you.

    I cannot wait to move Jack. Especially after that cluster fuck ya'll call a inclement weather plan. Of course just as I have been saying the Kansas side is better relatively. I went down 435 for a good part of the day getting home. The other side was a Missouri cluster fuck of epic proportions. the turnpike on the other hand was emptied and closed. SO yeah I will move, You can keep it.

    £1.339 per litre

    1.339 GBP = 2.03066 USD
    1 litre = 0.264172 gallons US

    So

    US $10.29 per 1 US gallon.

    1. Learn to use commas.

    2. You do realize that the train overall is more expensive than flying, especially one-way?

    My bro goes from New Haven CT to NYC on the Amtrak for work nearly every day and he has a $300/month commuter pass for that. Fuck, even in Boston, it is a $100/month for unlimited 'T' usage. I would assume that NYC'ers pay a monthly for their tram passes as well.

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

    Are people still talking about public transportation? I could get a $75/monthly pass for Los Angeles Metro... I don't. Why? Because that money is better used on gas. The public transportation system even in LA is grossly ineffective. The bus system is always late, buses break down... and the light rail is very limited. The Gold line is nice (but limited), the blue line is falling apart and the red line (subway) is okay (but also limited!).

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

    tbh, the only thing that makes mass transit so appealing in NYC isn't the price of gas, it's the traffic and exorbitant parking fees at garages ($25-30 to park for an afternoon)

    I take the train to work, but if there was a magical universe where there's no traffic and parking was free, my 45 minute subway commute would be about a 20 minute drive.

    $25-$30 to park for an afternoon? Yea... that's crazy and in NYC it'll make sense to use public transport. It's more of a compact city than LA. LA downtown parking (Little Tokyo/Civic Center) is usually anywhere from $6-$10 flat rate (all day). Big difference certainly. Even the garages are about $11-$12... and you can get discounted monthly passes.

    Nah... don't read it if you don't wanna. I really don't care to do so

    Gee it is expensive really??? That is the point... comparing fuel as OMG expensive when the reason it is OMG expensive is because of taxes laid in place to cover the cost of a transit system that is woefully inefficient and never makes a dime no matter how much they charge for tickets...... spelling out services are offered for free...

    I just remember seeing all of Europe on a train pass... it is everywhere and subsidized by the government... if people paid the true price they would all prefer to buy a inexpensive car.

    Loki I hear ya... I only parked once in the city and that cost me fourteen dollars for one of those rotating elevated garages. In Boston the cost of renting your parking spot can exceed the cost of an average apartment per month in most places. Plus in an emergency you have ten millions pounds of ignorant humanity in between you and safety.... so the long and short for me is keep the city...

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

    Gas here has been jumping up and down, down 10 cents, then up 10 cents, then up another 2 cents all in about a 24 hour cycle. It's gotten to the point that you really need to get gas before you need it.

    Public transportation isn't an option for me at the moment.
    I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.

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

    Really?

    Here in Texas the only people who truly advocate for "public transportation" are those who think that by doing so will free up the HOV lanes for themselves.

    The Dallas / Fort Worth area has both "light" and "hard rail" for hauling would be car commuters between jobs, shopping centers, and venues, but they all have to drive to the stations before they can get there.

    When I lived in the Dallas "inner-city" the nearest "light rail" station was 8 blocks away.

    If I wanted to take the bus to get there I'd have to walk 2 blocks in the opposite direction, and take two bus transfers to get there.

    So, like most commuters, I had to weigh my time versus cost savings.

    I chose to drive to work.

    And it was still both cost effective, and economical for me NOT to take public transportation.

    rather than subsidizing mass transit, sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't be more effective to encourage companies to support telecommuting (along with nationwide broadband).

    Here in Dallas companies like Texas Instruments are.

    Without them there wouldn't be a North Corridor between the Dallas Central Business District and the Northern Counties.

    But it's not about transportation, but rather increasing the property values along the corridor.

    People won't read it; that's what he is saying. I think the point was advice, not a request. Your contributions are more likely to be read the better presented they are. I remember having this conversation with refuji once, and he ended up agreeing believe it or not.

    Oh I get it... but sometimes I cant be bothered. So my advice if that is an issue is don't read it. Plenty of folks will. I post to hash out my thoughts and read others while gaining new knowledge and perspective. Sometimes I labor over a post. Sometimes i simply hack out something in five second, hit send and walk out the door.

    NYC Metrocard card cost $104 for 30 days - unlimited use - vs. $2.25 each way on a single basis

    Best deal going - I use it M-F to/fro plus meetings throughout the day plus weekends

    I think Loki's take might be the case for suburban living but for 5 boro living the nyc transit system is awesome

    last night I went from my apt. to the Lower East Side then into Brooklyn then home afterward

    It's at least that to park in downtown Chicago for an afternoon. It was $40 for the afternoon to park near Michigan Avenue & Oak. It would be a lot cheaper to take the El but not as convenient.

    I don't see much of that here at all. Solar panels around here are incredibly rare.
    The places with panels are generally the ones with views where retired people from California come to spend their retirements... when they aren't wandering around in drive-a-cabin vehicles.

    There have been other programs I am sure. I imagine the payoff doesnt translate to profitable to implement at an energy company. In Connecticut, around 2003-2004, I could pay a thousand of the six thousand cost for installing heat scuppers in my utility rooms. Essentially these things scup the heat generated (and lost) from your boiler, furnace, water heater and dryer. The catch was all the equipment had to be located in a enclosed room. I had a open floor plan basement so no deal.

    Anyways the State would have paid 3000 and the energy company would have paid 2000 and I would pay 1000 to be more energy efficient. I dont know if it was zero ROI or if no taxpayers wanted to pay for something they had never heard of but I think that program got the axe. The info they sent me had the unit paying off my investment in three years.... so that means cost of install and the unit itself was a actual payoff of 18 years.... as with most large home appliances the scupper probably had a lifespan of ten years. SO never any payoff... just wasted money and happy thoughts.....

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.

    Dang, I cocked it up. I multiplied by 1.339 twice.

    The price at the time of writing above ought to have been $7.68/gallon.


    Having said that, today, the two garage forecourts serving unleaded petrol were at

    £1.349 and £1.379 per litre

    At this time it's 1.00 GBP = 1.51625 USD in the exchanges

    There are 3.78541 liters per US gallon

    £1.349 per liter x 3.78541 liters per gallon x 1.51625 £/US$
    =

    7.7427580539625

    £1.379 per liter x 3.78541 liters per gallon x 1.51625 £/US$

    7.9149468913375

    That is, 1US Gallon of unleaded petrol is

    between US$ 7.74 and US$ 7.91

    Despite the exchanges due to the weak Pound Stirling, the overall cost of fuel per gallon has risen over the last few days.

    For our drivers to actually pay for the roads they use, prices would have to be about the same in the US.

    Putatively, the price of gas has decreased by 6 cents nationally. Any changes where you live?

    Seriously, I cannot become wrapped up in it... does it suck? Yup but due to the variety of circumstances I haven't seen less than two dollar gas since I went to Hawaii in 1997... the cost of being I suppose.

    Falling back down here in LA, where some of the highest prices nationally are recorded.

    Shell, 76 and Mobil all show $4.09 regular. While Chevron remains slightly higher at $4.13.

    By the way, I give prices when paid in cash (always have been in this thread). For credit/debit the first three are $4.15 and Chevron is $4.23. I always pay in cash... $20 here and there.

    The decline in prices has been quite slow... but they are falling.

    Down to 3.67. Wonderful. Just in time to fuel up the gas-guzzler for the summer driving season.

    Thank you Pres. Obama for bringing down gas prices! (j/k).

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

    I saw threethirtyfivenine here today. Interesting that when I returned from my five-state trip a week ago, the gas prices in this little town were about ten cents less than ANY gas price that I saw anywhere on that trip, even the deep highway discounters such as Pilot and Flying J. It's gone down eleven cents since then, to what I mentioned.

    Not sure what the CowboyBob post (two up from this) directed at JackSpringer means, rather perplexing to me, LOL. Part of that might be that I don't really understand what the modern "receipts" meme actually means...

    Skyrocketed is a good word -- the price downtown here jumped from $3.69 to $3.94 without any of the usual steps in between.

    332nine a week ago, which included redeeming my 14-cents-per-gallon gasoline rewards from the supermarket.

    In that week, the gas prices went up, AND my tank is still full so my bonus is expiring anyway. I saw 356nine yesterday, I think.

    I prudently bought some produce, etc., which qualified at the right time - frozen stuff that can keep OK - while making sure the prices weren't also artificially inflated to suck people in to the "savings" which would no longer exist.

    Only buy the stuff you normally buy to get the gas discount -- the whole part of the store's marketing is to get you to buy extra stuff -- stuff that you don't need.

    Locally Hy-Vee's program is much easier than Price Chopper.

    I agree... I got a QuikTrip Corporate card and the discounts are much better.

    Price Chopper blows for the single guy. They give a 5 cent gas discount if you spend 50 bucks.... Kroger where I am from does 100 cumulative for the 5 cents. I guarantee I spend more there than the average bulk shopper.... stupid rewards program

    Yeah, that also.

    Besides making sure I'm not buying something with the price jacked up (to recompense them for giving me the cents-off-per-gallon), I never buy things that I don't intend to use. In other words, I stay entirely within my normal buying habits. In some cases I may stock up on something that I intend to use in the near future, that won't spoil - a recent example being able to buy 4 pounds of frozen green beans (and precisely the same ones I always buy). which weren't overpriced, and which gave me 4 cents off per gallon. They will be entirely gone before July anyway, perhaps even before June.

    And it is also Hy-Vee that I'm talking about, so I don't need to explain anything to you, as you're obviously using it as well.

    The gas prices are now 364nine and higher, so it REALLY looks like I chose the right time to fill up.

    We don't have Price Chopper here and I don't know the chain, but generally the arrangement which gives a discount after a certain cumulative amount is spent - usually within a rather short period of time - really DOES suck for, as JayHawk mentions in #594, the single guy.
