According to those supposedly in the know, NOPE!
Looks like we are going to be stuck with $3/gal +/- fuel costs for some time to come.

World usage is outstripping it's ability to get the fuel out of the ground and process it.

I guess we shouldn't feel to bad, fuel costs have already risen to around $6/gal in two European countries. Sure is making Tania and me (full-timers since 1999) take a hard look at our travels with the RV though.

Long trips and fixed incomes don't seem to be very compatible right now. We were lucky to lock into a one year rate at a campground outside of Kissimmee, Florida for $325/month plus $45 for electric in March.

Not that many years ago, around 10 oil refineries were shut down in California. The reasons were bantied back and forth as to whether or not it was the environmentalists or the equipment was outdated. This effectively placed a cap on output for many years to come. New refineries are in the planning stages, however the total time involved seems to be several years;planning to production. The Canada website shows gas prices in major cities. Calgary lists the equivalent of $4.25/gal.

PClayton,

That's funny. I had to draw my own version to use on another site...

Yeah Don,

But when regular gas is $2.75 a gallon, I don't think I am getting much of a bargain on diesel at $2.63.

When I bought my truck in Sep 2003, Reg gas was $1.49 and diesel was $1.29 - diesel has more than doubled in price in less than 2 years.

Of course if you want to travel, you just pay it, grumble, and go on.

I think what this country needs real bad is about a 3 day "gass out" like over labor day where no one in the USA and Canada bought fuel products for 3 days. It will never happen but if it did it would get the oil industry to take notice.

Sorry Don, I don't like it at all. In fact I think we've been had, but can't do a darn thing about it. I hope it goes up until the whole darn economy collapses, then we'll see where the price goes. I realize this is where I bite my nose off to spite my face but...too bad!

Diesel at BP actually went down this weekend. Was $2.54 last week, I filled up yesterday for $2.39. I'm in Virginia Beach. BP station is on Princess Anne at Baxter Road.

$2.95 for diesel, $2.57 reg unleaded. Good ole So Cal. Last week it was $3.15 for diesel. I haven't driven my truck in so long I don't even know if it'll start. John

Here it is. They are gouging us. They can pump plenty. They can refine just as much. IT goes like this. They wait for something to happen, even a minor event. Then they push the prices up daily or weekly till they think they are just below the point that we will start really screaming. You know call our congress man/woman and the such. They let it sit for a couple of days just to make sure they got all they could and then they back it off by about half of the increase. Now we all are running around thinking we are getting a bargain and everyone is happy again. What are you going to do we need the stuff.

Mark, no problem with the spelling, I also take off my glasses. List all you want, but if you filled up the lines you could drop from 15 to maybe 3-5 lines and sure could speed up my reading. Thanks
