I filled up at the Flying J on I-81, near where I-77 crosses it in VA, yesterday for $2.689 (including the 1 cent discount). It's running around $2.799 here in NC.

It's hard to blame any one group for high fuel prices. You can say that more refineries and more drilling will lower prices; and that's somewhat true, but only in the short term. Long term we'll be back with high prices spreading blame.
Major increases in consumption from countries like China and India are other reasons why fuel prices are high, and might stay there, this consumption will continue to grow. A bigger problem is that we've never had a consistant energy policy. Why? Because each administration comes in, creates a new energy policy, and we start over. We need a long term energy policy that won't change every 4 to 8 years. Maybe high prices will force this issue or at least more long term direction.

Diesel is going for $3.09/gallon in Kinross, MI. It's crazy!

Has anyone out there seen the car commercial about "going yellow"? Apparently there's a car maker out there manufacturing cars to run specifically on ethanol fuel. Funny stuff! You can hardly find ethanol in the U.S. Canada has had ethanol available for YEARS and I ran it in all sorts of old vehicles and never had a problem.

Ethanol keeps the farmers going, runs cleaner, won't freeze or clog gas lines, AND is cheaper. So why isn't it available everywhere? Same reason that prices are so high! The oil companies have become too greedy, and we are, after all, still buying the product.

Mooky Mouse... What you are saying regarding ethanol being cheaper may be true in Canada, but down here in the lower 48 they are saying it will be just as expensive as gasoline, plus you will get less mpg. This just shows us that no matter what advances comes out to offset gasoline, the price will be just as bad if not worse. More big oil induced statements through the beaucracy to make us keep buying their gasoline.

Wow Wa0mqe! I can't believe that ethanol will be just as $$ as gas. That's craziness! I know from personal experience that my vehicles ran better on ethanol. Not only did I get much better mileage, but the car ran much smoother. It's such a shame when a good thing for the environment and the consumer gets torn apart for profit!

Th eonly way ethenol would as expensive as gas, would be to line the greedy pockets of the oil company execs and the politicians that will allow it to happen. I find it hard to believe that growing corn costs as much as drilling for oil. I don't think refining costs would be any higher. There are renewable energy sources that are cheaper and more enviromental friendly that have been areound for years, but as long as we rely on the same people make billions of dollrs on oil to make these fuels a reality, it will not happen. Would you do something knowing it would cost you millions of dollars. Where is the encentive.

Diesel was $2.649 at the Walmart in Unicoi, TN yesterday. Gas was $2.449 (after gift card discount).

Maybe, just maybe, these high prices are starting to come down?

There was an interesting article in "Car and Driver" about etnanol. Seems the fuel mileage is about 25% less. Auto manufactures like GM are building the E85 flex fuel vehicles because large vehicles with poor mileage capable of burning E85 don't count against the corporate mpg average. The calculation on E85 price verses gasoline is: if gas is $2.50, E85 would have to be $1.88 or less to be cost effective because of its reduced energy content.

Diesel here is $3.15. I felt good fillng up. It's been as high as $3.49. If I paid $2.64 like Hitchhiker I'd be ecstatic . Weird isn't it
