Five Dollar gas?

Remember those dire, dreadful predictions of inevitable $5.00 a gallon gas this Summer? $3.25 here today on the solistice. Glad to say "They" were wrong!

But it's refinery cleaning and hurricane season...big oil is just looking for any excuse to get those prices up. The euro situtation is helping us right now but that could change come July 1st when Europe is instilling a trade embargo on Iran oil imports. Iran has issued a statement that it will retaliate by closing the Strait of Hormuz where 20% of the worlds oil passes through. Even if it creates a few days disruption it's going to create tension which will drive the markets high in a hurry...we'll see in a few days I guess...

2 weeks ago, here in Minnesota, I paid $3.39 as I filled up for our trip to Lake Mille Lacs. Last week it went up to $3.79 and for the first time that I can remember, diesel was less than unleaded. There was a big article in the newspaper that our gas was high last week because the Chicago refineries were closed so that they could change over from winter blend to summer blend. Last night I paid $3.54 (less a $.20 discount) so hopefully it is coming down.

In Bedford, VA, I paid $3.05 with a Walmart gas card. I've been the camp host at Smith Mountain Lake State Park for the month of June. Remembering when I started driving in 1958, gas was below $.50. It's good to see the price falling.

I remember when "dollars worth" was part of the English language.
