$3.75 for prem. and I live 10 miles from the second largest refinery in the US. I should not bitch cause when the price goes up my oil royalty checks go up.

We could easily have $5 gas prices if the M.E. erupts

It won't take that to occur. It will happen due to normal corporate greed (like every year) and the stupid EPA special gas blends required for various regions.

It was still $3.359 this afternoon, even at the Shell station. I filled up, so I might dodge the coming price hike for another week or so.

I remember about a week or two ago that Saudia Arabia said it wouldn't let oil go over $100 a barrel and now Drudge says they are cutting output?   :???:

$3.599 locally this morning.  And pundits are calling for $4.50 (or higher) by Memorial Day.

Time to start carpooling.

And time to revisit the whole "Going to Danvers Corporate" one day a week as well. Unless they want to start giving me a gas allowance.

Oh for the good old days, when gas was less than a quarter, off road fuel was 15 cent and democrat voters actually worked.

When was this mythical time when democrats actually worked??  I remember gas under a quarter and bought kerosene for our trailer at $.14/9 when first married but that working democrats thing has me stumped.

If you want to know how to fix America's gas, and economic woes, do the opposite of what owebuma says. owebuma has made every economic step into a complete misstep.
