Haven't found the price of gas to have fallen off here in Central FL since the Easter weekend. Being Memorial Day isn't really that far off I think you may see a little drop and then another spike to get us travelers that want to hit the highways for that holiday. It's just and ongoing process to get more money out of our wallets. I wonder if they would really rethink the process and stop doing this to encourage maybe even MORE people to hit the roads who might be a little finacially strapped but would still like to go somewhere if it were a bit more affordable.

To answer the OP's question, if the Keystone Pipeline is ever laid, we "might" have a chance at lower gas prices. But as long as tankers from foreign ports continue to dock in US ports, it's anybodies guess what gas prices are going to be as we have no control on who we may pi$$ off tomorrow.

Easter is over and gas has stayed up the 15 cent a gallon increase before the holiday. Diesel was $3.79 a few weeks ago, $4.08 yesterday.

This makes it $5.84/US gallon.

Wonder why we like driving in the States????
Remember here in the US when gas was knocking on $1.00 per gallons door? Pumps couldn't handle anything over $.99 and they started to sell gas per litre (or liter, the American spelling) until they could change out the pumps. Problem was many people here in the states were asking "what is a liter?"

Thinking about this I recall a conservation I had with another driver back in Detroit one day.. At the gas pump.

Prices were down at the time for one reason or another.. He ask when they were going up again.. I told him "on the 21st" he said "How do you know that?" I said "Because that's the day I bring my motor home in to re-fule."

Turns out I was wrong, it was the 20th.

If our goverment would make the big southern refinery's that would use the Keystone pipeline produce and sell "all" the products made from the oil inside the USA, WE MIGHT BENIFIT FROM IT! , but that is not the refinery's plan........
Gas, other fuels are top U.S. export €“ USATODAY.com
Everything that big business makes and sells ........goes to the highest bidder, and when inventory(finished petroleum products) in our country is down, well, guess what the price does
I believe America's #1 export use to be wheat, today it is "finished petroleum products"!

Complain all we want but it's something I enjoy and will give up other things to drive down the hwy @ 8 miles to the gallon. Just like the 64 Caddie I fill up a couple times a week,to cruise around in
I think the saying goes, if you can't afford to fill um don't buy one.
I can't afford either but I get by. Dad would complain @ 18 Cents per Gallon and a pack of smokes was 27 cents. Boy what would he say now...

Something to pass the time......

If you want to see what is going on with the shipping in and out of our country......here is a interesting way to look and watch the traffic
Live Ships Map - AIS - Vessel Traffic and Positions - AIS Marine Traffic
Check out the traffic around our southern coast line in the gulf where the big refinery's are

Yesterday I drove by the station we usually fill up at and it was $3.55 1 hour later while going back pass said station it had gone up 10 cents. I have noticed that it always goes up on Thursdays and back down after the weekend. I have been filling on a Tuesday or Wednesday's

That's an interesting observation. I'll have to watch locally and see if it follows the same pattern.

Slim chance of fuel prices declining, great chance of increasing: Price of gas rises as refiners send more overseas- MSN Money

The confounding part is; we still import crude oil.

The only way I would go for the Keystone Pipeline is if it went to the middle of the US were it would be refined for our use. REMEMBER THE ALASKEAN PIPE LINE THAT WE PAID FOR AND HOW MUCH FUEL DO WE GET FORM IT NOW. If it goes to a port it will leave the US at our expense. The Keystone Pipeline will be like the Keystone Cops it will be joke to think it will lower gas prices.

The existing Keystone pipeline does exactly that, goes to the middle of the U.S. and stops. Capitalism at work, why sell refined fuel in North America for $4 per Gallon when it sells for >$8 in Europe. Thus the new pipeline to Port Arthur, TX.
