    Interesting. It usually goes down during the winter. Barring currency devaluation or something like that, I don't see it going up. Of course, I have been wrong before.

    Interesting local development, Shell stations here are now giving a 10-cent/gallon discount if you scan your Kroger Card (discount card from a regional supermarket chain).

    You guys have it so easy. Currently running £1.33 ltr/$8.04 US gallon/$9.66 UK gallon. Reckoning to go up to around $8.34 US gallon/$10.01 UK gallon fairly shortly.

    It now costs about £80/$128 to top up my Carina SE.

    The average price for regular is $3.55 per gallon. For Premium it is about $3.85.

    It has been that since Thursday. We're due for another $0.10 increase soon.

    $3.38 for regular the other day.

    Eh, price go up, price go down.
    The way to reduce your costs is to drive less, or (more radical) change vehicles.

    About $3.45 here in SW Virginia...

    Anyone doubt we'll be over $4 by April?

    How about $5 by July?

    I do - but you know, *someone* has to balance you out on here

    (note: I dont doubt $4. $5 is possible, but I really doubt we'll be *over* 5)

    I hope you are right - because if I am right it's going to suck ass for everyone. The car industry - just barely recovering - is going to get kicked in the balls. So will everyone else who isn't earning at least $100k annually - and even then, they'll feel it.

    I'd be more optimistic if it weren't for the Fed's orgy of money-printing. That is is going to do more serious and longer-lasting damage than the chimpout in Libya.

    I think a lot of it will depend on whether or not they tap into the strategic oil reserve, as they've been discussing (ignoring whether or not that is a good idea, which I suspect it is not)

    Based on what I've read, that would be about a three month's supply. That's at full spigot; not just a trickle. I doubt they'll do full spigot.

    But, again, the thing that concerns me more than temporary surges in crude oil prices caused by speculators and the world market's worries about the Libyan (and Middle Eastern) chimpouts is the massive inflationary pressure of the Federal Reserve's "qualitative easing" - running the printing presses at 8,000 RPM 24-7 to "stimulate" the economy.

    No one's really talking about that. But it has much more potential to do long-term damage, in my opinion.

    I think even $4 gas is going to be a problem. The last time gas got that high, back in 2008, it triggered the collapse of GM and Chrysler and really fucked-up sales of new cars across the board. And that was before the Wall Street crash and 16 percent (real) unemployment and people losing 30-60 percent of their net worth/assets.

    If it happens again, it's gonna be a lot worse I suspect.

    Regular unleaded: $3.29 to $3.35 per gallon in Central NJ.
    Some places may be slightly lower for cash.

    Premium unleaded is about 20-30 cents higher per gallon.

    Inflation bites if you save money and generally do not run up large amounts of debt.

    I look on the printing press as a form of theft from the savers.

    Smile Gas price

    Gas is $4.15 in Honolulu. Can anyone beat that? Lucky for me I only average 19 miles a WEEK (no typo).

    Yes. There are some stations in the SF area that are asking a bit more than that, but our average price is now about $4.00 even. A lot gas stations asking $3.999 for a gallon of 87.

    BTW, when are they going to get rid of that 9/10 of a penny nonsense?

    The 9/10 of a penny nonsense is from the tax.


    Prices in my area have been holding at $3.459 for regular and $3.859 for premium for quite some time now.
