Ours is finally down to $3.739 today!! Diesel is right at 3.999 or 4.039. I topped our propane tank up yesterday at $2.899 at a resort. Locally it's $3.589/gallon.

Our gas prices vary from $3.51 to $3.59. Diesel is still about 40 a gallon more. Sure glad we stayed with our gas motor home.

The way the powers that be justify high fuel prices is our refining capacity can;t meet demand, really odd since 2 Philly area refineries are closing due to what they say is low profits. Of course they own other refineries which will push up the price since they can't meet demand, go figure

Be aware those prices may be coming to a theater near you !! Watch for it cause its coming..That will put me off the road for sure. Think I'll use the moho to store my lawn tools in
Skipping a lot that may be covered....
But most of these countries with really high gas prices, itms taxes, to pay for their socialist health care systems.

Oddly, while I'm personally against wealthy doctors, and completely against any lawyers, especially those who were so bad at it that they had to become politicians to make a buck...
I am for universal single payer health care. Odd, eh?

"The decline in oil markets may give U.S. drivers a break this winter. Gasoline prices have dropped during the past few months, though at a slower pace than oil. The price of gas has fallen 14% since peaking in May near $4 per gallon (3.8 liters). Oil is down by more than twice as much — 32% — in that time." (USA Today)
But of course that is because they can not produce enough gasoline.
According to WSJ "Since it can be cheaper to buy a refinery, tear it down and ship it than it is to build from scratch, they are looking at the old production plants that dot the U.S. landscape."
If they were to open some of these, in the US.... would our gasoline prices come down? I wonder.......
