Oil closed at 90 dollars and some change this afternoon. I know that had nothing to do with the fact that earlier today I saw diesel near Lawrenceville, Ga at a QT for 3.79. That is the lowest I have seen diesel in this area in quite a while. Going lower and I am going camping.

Sure enough, today, with the holiday weekend looming our local Maverick jumped it 10 cents to $3.73 and premium at $3.97. (And yes, I know we're low compared to a fair portion of the country).

Sure glad I filled up yesterday using my Smith's loyalty card points.

I'm sure this is just the start this week as well.
Regular unleaded went to 4.139 (cheapest in town) a couple weeks ago, diesel is 4.459 at the same station although my wifd says she saw it for 4.259 on her way to work.

Gas is dropping, today at 3.37 per gallon. Although it is dribble dropping (a penny or two here and there) it has dropped from 3.59 a couple of weeks ago. Certainly not 16%+ crude oil has dropped the past few weeks...but it is moving in the right direction.....

Where exactly is this supposed to take place? Gasoline prices have done nothing but drop for the past month here in the Houston area. Want proof? See this Gas Buddy chart.

The banks including Chase and investment houses like Goldman Sachs are adding more than $1.25 to the price of every gallon of gas consumed in the United States.Bart Chilton, a commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the federal agency that regulates commodity futures and option trading in the United States, has stated publicly that far too few players control far too much of the market, allowing them to push the price of gas higher and higher.

Chilton obtained an energy research report from Goldman Sachs spelling out how much the Wall Street firm estimated speculators had pushed up the real price of oil sold to make gas, due to large bets in the markets. Using the numbers from in the Goldman Sachs report, combined with current information from the CFTC, Chilton calculated how much speculation is driving up the price at the pump for the average consumer. By Chilton’s calculation, if you drive a car like a Honda Civic, you’re paying $7.30 more than you should every time you fill up — to Wall Street speculators. If your car is a Ford Explorer you’re paying an extra $10.41. For a Ford F150, he says owners pay an additional $14.56 per fill up -or more than $750 a year. Easy to figure what it would be for each tankful of fuel for an RV.



But with the bankers and speculators having bought key members of Congress it is not going to get any better. When the Koch brothers can simply write a check and hand Gingrich over $3 million the average American is left out in the cold in more ways than one.

If you live in Or-Wa- or CA there is no such thing as lowering prices. Hasn't been in few weeks. The rest of the country gets to enjoy this, but not the Left Coast Border states. Its sickening to note this greed going on. The planned shut down of the refineries are to blame. They wanted it that way, and its working.

Of course, the big problem is the monopoly. The oil industry enjoys the worlds biggest monopoly. I have a rare lung disease, and get a very expensive medicine to treat it. 15 years ago when the provider was the only only they would drive up prices every year saying there was blood shortages, and they had to shut down plants for maintenance. Now that there are 3 other companies producing a similar medicine, there are no longer any shortages, no plant shut downs, and prices have stabilized.

We need alternative fuels to do the same thing for the oil industry. If they ever do a natural gas conversion for my vehicle, I for sure will look very hard at doing it.

In the western Wa area. It was on the local evening news last night and I heard it on the news today as well. While much of the US has seen prices go down some, it's been going up here. :-( it sure is annoying.

In the western Washington area. It was on the Seattle evening news last night and I heard it on the radio while driving in Tacoma today. While much of the US has seen a decrease in gas prices, we've been going up noticeably. :(

Very annoying.
