View Full Version : Gas prices-

05-12-2004, 06:56 AM
In va, where I am staying, some people who use gas in their business are getting put out of business. It is 180 a gallon where I am and 2.08 in md, where we are living.

How are the prices elsewhere?

was 1.75 Monday

1.99 the next day

I filled up this morning. I stopped at $40. It was making me sick.

I thought the Saudis made a deal with Dubya to keep the price down thru the election. According to Woodward's book anyway.

I filled up this morning at a 76 station. Prices:
Regular $2.19/gal
Midgrade $2.29/gal
Super $2.39/gal

If they are going to bend me over they might as well give me a reach around. Oil companies are lame.
The northwest always is at least 20 cents higher than the national average. Which doesn't make sense with the Pipeline coming into the NW. The company I work for does the maintenance painting for the Aleyeska Pipeline in Alaska, tanks/piping and whatnot.

I drive a Dodge Ram with a 26 gal. tank. I use a tank a week /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

At least I have plenty of headroom /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Speaking of pipelines maybe you can get me a job paintin' that sucker. Doesn't Alaska pay residents several G's a year in oil royalties? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Saudia Arabia just asked OPEC to start making more oil. The prices are rising for a couple of reasons, but supply and demand is a major one. I heard an interesting quote the other day. It was said that if China's population had the same amount of money as Mexico's population, we would have an oil shortage with current rate of production.

$1.83 for regular around here. My 38' motorhome isn't going to be seeing much of the road this summer! 7 MPG...I can stay at the Holiday Inn Express, save money, and have everyone think I'm smart at the same time! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

different versions of that have been circulating for 2 years at least

unfortunately it will have no effect at all
