Kinda reminds me of Y2K. We'll need new pumps with room for another digit.

I think it was mentioned but ignored.

Funny, I'm on my way to Costco in Ukiah where premium is $6.35. Everywhere else is around $6.50.

Yes, and my OPINION is that presidents (of either party) really have very little control over short term gas prices. And, given the alternating D/R/D/R/D/R/D presidential parties, sorting out long-term effects by party are at best muddled.


Blaming/crediting any president for lower fuel prices during the substantially reduced consumption during COVID makes no sense IMO.

I agree!

Priced in ooak remote areas are always higher. I saw a sign posting diesel at 10 bucks in furnace creek. If your in Death valley and you need gas it's the only place. Your fault for not planning ahead. 30 min drive over the Nevada border will get you cheaper fuel..just sayin.
..a quick look at gas buddy shows mendicino prices normal ..well normal for california.

Perhaps that video is a bit of a conspiracy theory...the UP is not so powerful as to control the oil and gas company And if it's just a neener neener from them to Warren Buffet He in turn would find alternate ways to get his fuel for his stations. Big boys big games.

I keep hearing inflation numbers of 6-7%. Gasoline is up in the range of 200%. Eggs are actually in a similar range. Milk is up 50%.

Meat is harder to quantify in my eyes, but it is up a good bit more than 6-7%.

Vehicles are up a good bit. MSRP on new vehicles may only be slight increased, but the supply/demand means no one is knocking 10-20% off the MSRP. Used vehicle pricing is probably up 30-50%. I sold a 2011 F150 with 114K miles, an airbag light showing, and several maintenance issues, for $14K to CarMax.

Rents are up probably 30% or more, with some apartment complexes allowing people to break their leases because they can charge the new tenant $300-500 per month more. A duplex down the street from me in an average neighborhood was renting for $2k a month, with a minimum 2 year lease.

I see all of the Costco quotes. The Costco by mean shut down their gas pumps to double the number of pumps, so they were not an option this weekend. However, while pretty much everyone was charging $4.69 for regular, the Sam's close to where I store my TT was at $4.34 per gallon.

Congress enacted a ban on US crude oil exports in 1975, in the wake of the Arab oil embargo. The recent legislation repeals the 40-year old export ban is the Consolidated Appropriations Act.

But if you read your post, you lead the reader to believe that the Jones act is somehow responsible for higher furl prices. So what did you intend for the comment to mean?

Oil is bad and renewables are good

Of course itís the complicated answer and the simple one ( which not many people like to hear) so here itís the simplest version, OPEC cuts production oil prices goes up, OPEC increases production prices comes down, itís been going on for years, during COVID at the request of the US government OPEC didnít cut production allowing the prices to stay dirty cheap, now prices are much higher why? To make up for lost profits. Itís a number game. I give you a little more to bite on, American oil companies drill for oil with money from investors when prices are high, when oil prices are dirty cheap they all close shop at the expense of the so call investors which in turn write all off as an expense and thatís how the wheel turns itís a never ending circus. Are ready for another can of worms? Take electric cars the reason it sales itís because government incentives. Wait until it takes hold then you will see the price of Kw hours sky rocket itís no such thing as free lunch
