Gas Prices! Whoopee!

I have to drive LA to Texas and back next week at 6.5 mpg.

Hooray for better gas prices recently -

I figure I will be $369 richer this year than last for the same trip, time to buy some new toy for the RV!

What to buy??

It might be a bed of roses now with the low prices but, I'm just afraid what will happen once the price reaches the point where it's no longer feasible for U.S. oil companies to produce oil by fracking methods and go out of business. I fear that OPEC's goal in keeping their production up and lowering $ per barrel below the $50 bench mark is to bankrupt U.S. oil producers, and THEN double of even higher overnight the price of their oil!

Diesel is currently at $2.89 just down the street from me. A very good and smart friend mentioned that it would be good to take the savings of each fill up from today's fuel prices and bank it in preparation for the return of high prices. When they do return, and they will, we will have some nice savings. So if that $100 fill up is now costing $70 for the same amount of fuel, set the $30 aside in a separate savings account.

Thumbs up

Think about it this way. If you grew up in the 50s or early 60s (I think that's most of us), gas right now is cheaper than it was then! And your dad had that big Buick V-8 with Dynaflow. That old family bus was only getting 8-9 mpg.

So with today's prices and today's much more fuel efficient cars, our gas expenditures are way down. Even our RVs, with their 7-8 mpg, are costing no more to run than that old V-8 with the 4-barrel carburetor.

Tall cotton, my friends. Tall cotton.

We just made a quick 1900 mile trip in 2 1/2 days our car and saw $1.95 gas in NM and north Texas. The same stations had diesel $1.20 more at $3.15. I suppose they keep the diesel up there just because they can. Even at that, I won't go back to a gas MH. There is not one made that will haul all of my wifes stuff and pull my trailer of toys.

Guess living in the Midwest keeps on making cents...sense. In the 60s I paid .159 a gallon during gas wars and for a long time .199 regular pump price. Course I only had $1.00 in my pocket for gas....lol
Today in KC MO we are 1.979 unlead reg.
Let the good times continue to roll.

Where I am, in upstate SC, regular gasoline is $!.99, but diesel is about $2.89. This summer the price of diesel was about $.50 per gallon more than gasoline, but it does not seem to have fallen as much as gas prices. I am not into conspiracies, but I would be interested in any insights.

Probably because of the winter demand for heating oil combined with the demand for jet fuel. In the spring when heating oil season slows, I expect to see the price for diesel to drop as long as Brent crude stays low.
