Thread: Gas Price Survey

    On the way back from Reno, we noticed a few gas stations that sold 87 for $1.599. Most of CA seems to be cheaper than NV until you get south of SF, such as here in South SF and San Bruno.

    I think most people who live in this area make sure they fill up as far away from here as reasonably possible.

    No. I think that there ought to be a price floor on gasoline. I'm in favor of 3 bucks a gallon. At that level, people are more concerned about conservation... ie not making unnecessary trips and buying more fuel efficient transportation. Now that we're in the credit crunch, people aren't buying anything.

    A good energy policy would be to implement a tax on foreign oil. That way you maintain a level of drilling here in the USA and you lower the trade deficit. With that, you keep the basic industries going.. tool and dye, suppliers, etc while you use some of the newfound money to fund the green jobs that Obama is talking about.

    Gas is still 1.59 here and has been holding... oil has dropped by nearly 8 bucks in that period. While oil drops, other consumer prices continue to rise including food and petroleum based products.

    On the way back up! My neighborhood Exxon sat at 1.55/1.67/1.79 for a couple of weeks. Yesterday it was back up to 1.59/1.71/1.83, and today it's 1.69/1.81/1.93.

    So much for that Buck a gallon

    Gas prices here have moved from a low of $1.549 to 1.709 for regular. If current trends continue, I see 2.25-2.75 by spring. That is because of expected increases in oil prices and because of the stupid mandated refinery changeovers to blend some 50 different varieties of gasoline for "clean air" markets.

    You can be guaranteed that if the stupid elephants did nothing about that, nor will the braying, honking sneering jackasses.

    Over here we call it 'Making hay while the sun (still) shines'. It (the sun) may not last for long but you can bet your bottom dollar that the SOBs will cash in while there is still some money around. Better brace yourselves, guys, I think the world is in for a long cold 'winter'.

    I've heard it had something to do with the USA refineries and the changeover for the winter gasoline.

    But what I do not understand is why the price in one area goes way up as another area goes down. I can find gasoline cheaper in the SF Bay area now than I can in Rocklin, CA (100 miles NE of here). Rocklin used to have the cheapest gasoline on the way to Reno from here. But now I can find lower prices in the SF Bay area.

    So why does one area go up in price and another down, in the same state (CA)?

    This is getting more strange by the day. Now, on the way to Reno from here in SSF, the cheapest gasoline we can find is in:


    San Francisco! In SF, it's about two or three cents above two bucks per gallon for 87.


    Rocklin, CA (about half way beteen SF & Reno) that used to be the cheapest is now asking $2.18. Reno, NV is even a few cents higher. I am comparing the same brand, Arco gasoline, which is usually the cheapest perhaps because they do not accept credit cards.


    Why would the same brand of gasoline have the price go up in some areas while at the same time price goes down in other areas on the same day? I never thought I would find the cheapest gasoline from SF to Reno right in SF!

    IOW, the price at Rocklin, CA went up as SF prices went down to make SF now cheaper than Rocklin. What determines this?

    $2.13 for premium at the corner Exxon, but I paid $2.03 at another Exxon halfway across town today.

    I don't have an Exxon fetish, but they seem to have a near monopoly in my area. Seems like all we've got anymore is lots of Exxon stations, a few Shells, some EZ Marts with fuel, and the occasional Jackpot or Mapco Express. I know of one BP. And lots of Exxons.

    This whole thing is ridiculous. I have noticed a consistent push upward in the price of gasoline from a low of $1.55 when oil was about 33.00 per barrel to $1.89 today when oil is about $40.00 per barrel. No one besides us is talking about it much less reporting it. The big oil companies are participating in price gouging at this point. Gas shouldn't be more than $1.75-1.80 at this point. the price shouldn't be rising 5 cents per week at this point.

    Regular 87 octane (with 10% ethanol) hovering around $1.65-9/10 around Memphis, Tennessee. Some stations are making a big deal about the fact that they don't sell ethanol.

    Prices are down a little here. The Corner Exxon jumped from $2.03 to $2.09 to $2.13 to $2.19 fairly quickly, then settled at $2.13 for a couple of weeks, now they're down to $2.03 again. For Premium.
