Last time I filled up it was $2.71 a gallon. I'll be glad if I ever see $2.00 a gallon again.

Gas here in KC is around 2.57 now with diesel @ about the same. I'll play their stupid game so I've cut my driving/fuel purchase by 60%. The excuses have been the same for over 20yrs(refineries capacity). Why haven't they increased the capacity. Read an article in the KC paper this morning and dealers in different parts of the country are charging customers .25 to .35 cents per gallon over what their paying for diesel...............

We are already starting to see the high fuel costs passed on to the consumer in the form of a "fuel surcharge" added to the invoice by the delivery service.
You can bet it will be added to everything else that we consume.
The refinery lack is based on the "global warming" folks pushing their agendas. Every time a new rfinery is proposed the picket signs go up and the globe begins to warm from all the "hot air" being expelled.
Then again maybe they are developing a hybrid diesel pusher that gets 100 mpg!

I just bought 91 octaine gasoline from the Flying J in Willard, UT for 2.509 per gallon. I was unwilling to buy 85 octaine gasoline at 1.339

Isn't it odd that 25 years ago when we had our last "capacity problem" aka oil embargo, we had rationing, line ups, gas stations that ran out of gas. Today's "capacity problem" only brings us higher prices but no shortages. Hhhmmmm ... just a thought.

We came home from Myrtle Beach about 10 days ago. It amazed me that the entire two weeks we were there, the price didn't change daily! It stayed the same! We saw it then for 2.10-2.35 a gallon.

Here where I am in NY, it's a daily or twice daily change. It's crazy. Since we got home, gas has gone from 2.53 up to 2.68 and higher for 87 octane. I've seen some stations change their numbers twice in 45 min. There's been as much as .25 between some of the stations within 5 miles. It used to be that we were cheaper than towns south of here-now we are MORE!

I'm going to try not to stop traveling-let's face it. Anywhere I go to buy gas outside of NY, I'll be saving money. We are starting to think about finding a permanent site somewhere( anywhere good within 1 1/hours of here-let me know)-even just buying property to put the camper on and us it. I'd hate to miss going away to different places, but this would at least give us a chance to camp without large gas bills.

Just over two weeks ago, I paid $2.16 for diesel at Wal-Mart. Last weekend I filled up at the same place for $2.32. Drove by Wal-Mart this after noon and it was $2.42 (all allowing for the 3 cent discount to use the gift card). Jumped jumped 26 cents in about 17 days.

Think I ned to go raid the local Mc D's for a load of French fry oil.

You folks had better stay east of the Rockies where gas and diesel is still "reasonably" priced.

Yesterday in Red Bluff, CA, I paid $3.059/gal for diesel (other stations were as high as $3.15) and $2.699 for 87 octane gas. Up here in the mountains (75 miles east) add 20 cents to diesel and 10 cents to gas.
