Gas going up again

It went from 3.15 to 3.39 in the last week and a half or so. I saw on the news where a some govt ethanol subsidy expired ?? It looks like another Spring / Summer of high fuel prices. Bummer.

Say it aint so! lol

Maybe now they will take that garbage out of my gas and quit messing up all my power tools. We are up to $2.99 at our local Costco...I think I paid $2.79 last week...bummer...

I have to say I like my Gas Buddy app that finds the lowest price around....more and more useful these day....

I can't say I am sorry to see the Ethanol subsidies expiring. Maybe that will help the price of food to go down a little since farmers won't be financially motivated to grow more corn. On the bad news side, I saw a news story here recently saying to expect to see prices spiking this summer before the election.

I wonder how much of the price of oil is being impacted by the Iranian threat to block the Strait of Hormuz?

I have to wonder if it changes the ethanol equation in the gas in any way or just means higher prices for us? No fan of ethanol here either, with all the boats and power equipment I use..........

From this West Texan who has relatives in the Oil & Gas industry who knows this sort of stuff, "Drill Baby Drill". There is enough oil underneath the USA to completely dry up our dependance on foreign oil and drive the price back down to under 2 bucks a gallon....and that money would stay in the U.S. economy....talk about a stimulus plan!

dg,

You are speaking my mind! I'll have to remain calm now lest I get too excited...
