We all knew it was coming, it was just a matter of time. I still plan on taking trips and will just have to power save a bit more for gas. Not having to buy cigarettes helps tremendously.


AH the memories of gas that was 85 cents per gallon and Leaded regular.

2.35 in Charleston. I wish the world power grid would fail and the oil reserves would dry up, then we can go back to horse and buggy, and oil lamps. Of course, I'll stash a couple thousand gallons of gas in the mountains for the TJ.

....or we could develope another source of energy!! Too many Americans, yep Americans, are making billions off of the oil industry. The big mark up on fuel happens right here in the good ole USA!!!

What gets me is the fact that our troops could buy fuel in Iraq for next to nothing, but in order for the USA oil tycoons to get their share of the pie, Irag ships it here, we mark it up and then send it BACK there......go figure!!

The kicker is there are no shortages, the speculators and traders are intentionally driving the prices up, from the traders side it's higher commissions. As for the winter/summer thing, man, thats been happening for 15+ years, nothing new. In case you have not figured it out yet just look at the oil companies profits for the last 4 years. There was some mention of the frozen rivers in the midwest slowing delivery of ethanol which btw is not used in summer fuels, only the winter mixes, at least here in the NE.
Simple answer is follow the money... if everyone in the supply chain is tacking on a 'get my share' percents for sure it's going to go up. The suppliers also have a ton of home heating oil left over that they didn't sell so my cynical side says they are making up the difference with gas supplies which always sell. There is also some speculation that wholesalers are stockpiling as much as they can so that when the prices go up in 3 months for the summer season they can release it at the higher price.

Sadly, it doesn't matter WHY the prices are high. If you are going to drive, you have to pay the price. Nothing short of not buying gas will drive the prices down. We "spoiled" americans are just NOT going to do that.

Oh my gosh, I thought we paid high fuel taxes here!

Last friday, I paid $2.49. Today, it's up to $2.52. It's going to just keep rising as long as we're willing to pay it.
I think I need to look into a diesel conversion kit more and hit up the fastfood places for their old fryer oils.

Sadly, America has become dependent on the automobile and convenience. We developed into a commuting society during the explosion of the burbs after World War 2. In the end we will either need to become more self sufficient within each of our communites (i.e. the United States prior to 1900), or develop efficient alternative fuels and the vehicles that use such fuel. Until then the oil giants will become more wealthy off the common citizens hard work.

I can still harness up a horse and wagon, saddle up a horse, and hunt for food and water to provide for my family. I truely believe that alot of the people in America will be in a bad way when the fuel runs out or is unaffordable, because of a lack of survival knowlege.

Ok done ranting, going back to my hole.

Paid $2.32 here in middle TN last night.

Thinking we might have to cancel our summer Jeep trip to CO this year. If gas hits $3.00+ not sure we can swing it.

3/15 - $2.49 in Michigan. The only good thing is I've been off work/had knee surgery(why I need an automatic) the last 8 weeks and only filled up 3 times, instead of my once a week fill up. Jeeps are certainly 'thirsty'.

Sorry, thought it was HD. Suzuki, nice bike. I had a Suzuki dirt bike. I'm going to date myself but I remember back in the mid-1970's when they couldn't give the bikes away.

I had a SV650 and a GSXR600 for a while.Nice bikes

Back to the Gas prices. I agree with Odhinn. I can hunt, fish and ride to be able to support my family. I think of the great song by Hank Jr. "Country Boy can Survive." I think it's terrible that we pay so much for something and most people don't question it. Last year we (Fire Department) couldn't leave the station in the Trucks unless someone called 911. No going to the store for food or anything. Staying in the station for 24 hours at a time, you get stir crazy. We had to cut back on fuel consumption. I sure hope that doesn't happen again this year.
