Most of our oil may come from other sources, but OPEC feeds other major countries. When their oil supply is disrupted, they have to lean on our sources, and the price goes up, worldwide. The world market for oil just rose 17%, from $85 to $100 last week. That may not raise the price in your gas station's tanks, but it raises the cost they must pay to refill thier tanks. Many who were paying just over $3/gal last week are paying $3.25/gal today. Count your blessings you're not yet paying the full 17% or you'd see $3.51 :o

we were @ 3.50 yesterday.
don't know what it is today :x

We're still at $3.29...
And so is VEGAS! (where we fly to Wednesday!) 8-)

Re: WTH????

In a way, it would be nice to park my Van in I didn't have so many tools and equipment it. That I may need everyday. It has a 30 gallon tank and Friday it cost me $95.00 to fill it. At least I can make a
round trip a week to Chesapeake, Va on 1 tank.

Re: WTH????

If I remember seeing right, we're at $3.39. I'm in the St Louis area and have two refineries pretty much in my back yard ... well, not literally, but close enough, it's in 30 miles from me. ConocoPhillips and Valpraso (if I spelled that right).

Re: WTH????

I've started a gas price log at home for my corner gas station. It's nuts.
I pass by it every day taking the kids to & from school.

Feb. 28 it's $3.35
March 2 it's $3.32
March 3 it's $3.49
March 4 it's $3.45
March 7 it's $3.42
March 8 it's $3.41 in the morn & it's $3.40 in the afternoon
March 9 it's $3.39

Now I know when it's about to go up or down because right now they're trying to keep up with the stations by the kids school & they just went down to $3.36, so Iook for the corner station this morn to drop once again today, if not in the morn to that same price.

Re: WTH????

I thought there was supposed to be some law where gas stations aren't allowed to raise & lower gas prices like crazy? :?

At least it's not race fuel cost! That's bad enough.

Re: WTH????

No, what there is a law against is price gouging. Like for example here in ME we take into account taxes, transportation costs, insurance for transportation, the cost of manufacturing said product...last week when this was done it was $2.91 per gallon and selling for about $3.35 at the time...some higher, some lower.

They then added in this news story that we should be thankful that we do not live in California because they also are subject to a sales tax of 6%, plus a highway tax that is already built in at the pump like the one we have, as is the federal tax. Kind of like a double dipper is what it sounds like.

Re: WTH????

I don't really feel anyone's "pain" at gas @ $3.50 or around there. I just got gas yesterday and due to the explosion of the gas refinery in Libya... THAT DAY.... I paid $4.15 a gallon... in N.CA.

What some of the posters have said about Cali is correct, we have extra taxes, we have extra refining costs ( cuz we require all cars be to smogged, gas is a lil different ) and we have the plain ol, 'expensive life style area'

I saw the man, preparing to raise the prices again.... this time regular will cost an arm or a leg... mid grade is your savings acct or credit card.... and premium will run you your first born or 2 lbs of flesh.

Geez.... I gotta move.... ;-)

You won't get away with no insurance in FL. Of course, it won't be an issue if you're leaving the truck behind in TN. ;)

My sister is constantly bragging about how cheap gas is in South Carolina compared to Maine. She is usually 40 to 50 cents less per gallon.

Re: WTH????

Smokieonefour,

I know what you are saying about your emissions standards. We have the same standards on our vehicles that you have and there are a lot of us asking why...we don't have snog, we are not an industialized state, we get everybody else's garbage in our air, and the idiots in Washington seem to think we need stricter restrictions than the other states to our west. Any type of emissions we produce goes up to Canada into Nova Scotia or over the ocean. Its like, get real people, look at where it is coming from, don't punish those who are receiving it. Just sayin'
