Local Gasoline Price

Crude is up to $46.52 as of today.

What frustrates me is how the gub'ment swears speculation had nothing to do with the price of fuel, yet when the market crashed so did fuel prices. I realize there are other circumstances, but c'mon....

Regular unleaded went from $1.64 to $1.69 Saturday here. Did anyone see the news report about the new taxes being proposed? Seems that they are not collecting enough tax on fuel to maintain the highways (maintain? whats that?) due to the slowdown in fuel sales. Now they are proposing to create a milage tax based on the # of miles driven per year. Now your going to be taxed on the fuel that you buy and the miles you drive. :mad:

This topic has been split. The last few threads were heading into a new political topic. The split Topic title is Future Fuel Prices & Taxes.

I think you meant to say "the last few posts". A thread is the whole conversation. Posts make up the thread.

BUMP!!

Here we go again! :shock: :mad:

Gas is now very close to what it was 4 years ago. Here's a quote from ceccil's post above in January 2009:

Bud Lite Platinum .... yuppie beer, tastes just like water. :funny:


Isn't it funny how silent the media has been since gasoline went from $1.89 at Obama's inauguration .... to today's 87 octane price of $3.75?

I recall that same media screaming bloody murder, & blaming Bush when gas hit $2.79. People were lined up on Worcester city hall protesting, & insulting Bush in the process. Suddenly it's no longer the Commander in Chief's fault! :o Imagine that! :gee:

Hi test is over $4/gallon here now ... :mad:

$3.75? I'd like to see that right now. Here are the lowest local prices that are in the newspaper. These prices are for 87 octane by the way. One place is up to $4.13 for 87 as of Tuesday afternoon.

That's because NY taxes the *censored* out of your fuel. By comparison, NJ has no tax on fuel - check out their prices.


Some other things I've recently learned about why gas is so high on both the left & right coasts: most states with high populations of drivers buy their refined oil from china or the middle east ... while the midwestern states get it from here or Canada. Makes you wonder .... WHY that is?? :gee: My guess is so states like NY & MA can screw their populace with more fuel taxes.

MA one-ups you with adding 20% ethanol .... so your mileage sucks, and your back to the station much sooner than you should be. Multiply that by 4 million registered vehicles in MA, & you see my point. :mad:

Wait until the libtards see what that does to the older fuel gaskets. Buy a tugboat and park outside any MA harbor and make your fortune towing gas boats back to harbor. Idiots.

Around here it's 10% ethanol. I live a very short distance from the NY/PA line, so most times I fill up in PA. It's generally about .10 cheaper. I don't go there just to get gas though, it wouldn't really save enough to make it worth while. While i'm there I pick up a roll of chew also. That's where the money is saved. In PA I get it for about $7, in NY the same roll is $18-$20.

What's funny is that downtown there are two stations that are no more than a couple hundred yards apart. One is usually the highest price in town and the other about the lowest and full serve to boot and some still fill up at the more expensive place.

Here's part of the reason, the high cost of mandates for ethanol which I believe have been allowed to expire but we are still being forced to use it for some reason.

Regular gas is 3.87 in Winston Salem, NC and up the I-85/I95 corridor to Richmond. Once you get to Richmond, it's 4.09 or more all the way to DC. I have to say the traffic was really heavy for 3:00pm so the price doesn't seem to be stopping anyone from traveling who wants to. I think I remember from previous price hikes that the price has to hit 4.25 before it affects our behavior. I hear that's where we are heading and that we will get there but the end of the month.
