Lucky you, cause that old assed car I drive has to have premium or it will skip-to-my-lue all over town. It's all good though. I remember the days when I could ride like the wind off of $10 regular unleaded. And don't let me fill it up. Who? I could ride for at least a month. :awww: I miss those days :sad:

North of Dallas, Texas the cheapest I've seen today was $2.89 (87 octane), $2.99 (89 octane) and $3.09 (91 octane) and is forecast to go higher within the week. I've heard the same thing MelTorresFan said, that we will see $4 a gallon gasoline before it's all said and done.

One owner I spoke to in Dallas said he didn't expect a gallon of fuel to ever go below $2.40 - $2.50 again. I suppose all in all it will be a good thing in the long run, but it sure hurts right now. And it's absolutely true that the working class American will suffer, leaving some with no other option but to stop driving or find a job closer to home. Even with the release of the oil reserve by the Feds, that won't bring prices down for months, at least.

I know where there is a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado, 5.7 litre motor, extended-cab shortbed with 30K miles if anyone's interested... :lol:

Georgia is closer to the path of the hurricane. it also could be price goudging by gas station owners. god gas really needs to down soon. i hope it does, i would kill for the days like 4 months ago when i complained that gas was $1.99 a gallon. :sad: or last summer when it was a $1.55 :eek: :eek: :sad:

Hell yeah. Hurricane season is not over. I think it's a combination of both. Maybe we'll see a slight drop in prices for a week or so, until the next storm comes along. I had a strange feeling that store owners were upping the price on gas to get their money back. Hell, we were gonna go to a family reunion Labor Day weekend, but, now everyone wants to load up in one car so that they won't have to pay for gas. Damn, this crisis is tearing families apart :sad: *in most hysterical voice* Whatever will become of us??? :hysteric:

Gas was actually cheaper on the GSP than it was in a town! I don't think I've ever seen that before. Leaving NYC today, gas was only about $2.87. Usually gas in my town is .30 less than gas in the city.

It went up about .50 overnight [Tuesday, I think]... and it just keeps getting worse.

They probably just didn't have time to change it.

Went to the gym last night (how fucking stupid is it now to join a gym that is 35 minutes from your place) and gas went up at one station .30 over the course of the hour that I was there.

what happens is that European countries are already used to the high gas prices.. Here in the US, people are not prepared for this kind of increase...
It doesn't matter if they drive a huge suv or a little 4 cylinder car.
The gas prices are going up too much too fast and the mid-class family where both parents have to work daily and have to fill up their cars every week is being affected.

The bottom line is paying more than $2 a gallon (let alone $3) is downright bullshit.

I've known this for some time, quite some time. I never voted for him, I had better sense than to.

He got on the news yesterday and told us not to buy gas unless we need it, blah blah blah, why doesn't he keep his ass at home at the White House, and run the country from there? Hell he makes pointless flights every other day. (Not saying he doesn't need to go to the Hurricane area but a lot of his trips are pointless.)

He's safer dead than alive. I just want him exterminated all together. But then again we'd get Cheney. Shit, I still say the Right Wingers and Christian Right are going to be the downfall of everything. It's alright to be religious but if you're going to let your "faith" lead you then practice what you preach. The fundamentals of Christianity are giving, caring, and love. It wouldn't hurt the Government to give a lil and care a lil with this hurricane and the rest of us suffering from gas milage.

Hell I'm a few weeks away from just quitting and living off Welfare. Because I cannot afford to drive to work, also a lot of the truck drivers around here have parked their rigs already. :eek:

I wish many leaders in Europe were like him. Blair is another one I like. Chirac I think is an imbecile and its not because of Iraq.He does not dare implement economic reforms, the coward. He should not seek another term and Sarkozy would be a better leader.

But the French don't want them, are you going to kick a politician for doing the things his people actually want? It's arrogant as hell to assume that Anglo-Saxon capitalism is the model everyone should be striving for. It's that attitude that has helped to create this mess - destroing the environment, using the world's oil supplies regardless of the price rises, creatin a super rich utterly disinterested in supporting the underclass.

Why does every country have to strive for contious economic growth? Who said that was the golden standard that we have to live by?

Ok, so I was on my way home from work, when I stopped by the store to play some Georgia Lottery. A strange turn of events happened. The reg. unleaded gas had gone up 10cents and the premium had gone down 10cents. Anyway, I'm standing in line to make a purchase, when one of the cashiers starts to panic. This lady in a big van tries to drive off without paying for her gas. Get this, it was a bill of $65 :eek: Some crazy customer backs his car in her path, and she tries to escape on foot. :lol: :hahaha: WTF? They call the cops and she gets arrested.

It's between $2.99 (gas most likely all out) to $3.39. I just filled up for $3.19 and I wasn't even close to empty and it cost me like $37....I have a 14-gallon tank.

People who think not driving as much is an option for many people in rural areas don't have a clue. My county is over 937 square miles with a total of 50,000. It is a minimum of 50 miles to the nearest metropolis.

I'm screwed if prices stay this high. I have to drive 90 miles a day to and from work. I fill up twice a week. That's over $80 a week...a car payment. :speakles:

People who think not driving as much is an option for many people in rural areas don't have a clue.

Driving less is not an option, it is what people will have to do.

We can whinge about it all we want. The relatively long era of cheap and abundant oil-based fuel is over. Now it is short era of expensive oil-based fuel. What is next is the era of no oil-based fuel. We are at least 5-7 years late in deploying new energy technology such as hydrogen-based engines and electrical engines. The consequences of this latency could be grave. SUV production is going to pretty much die off shortly. Regular cars are to follow.. Detroit companies will suffer mightly.. Social effects could be said.. Many people may lose their jobs. Then it will be an avalanche effect. Many industies will be effected. Prices for other necessities such as food will grow shortly too. Economy will suffer. How much? Tough to tell.. But something tells me that new recession is around a corner. But that was almost inevitable.. In 15-20 years, when finally new technologies are deployed, economy will boom again.. But next 15-20 years could be a struggle.. And the first thing that wll be effected will be our favourite freedom - freedom to drive wherever and whenever we want..Freedom to be where you want..




I'm screwed if prices stay this high. I have to drive 90 miles a day to and from work. I fill up twice a week. That's over $80 a week...a car payment. :speakles:

Prices won't stay this high. They will get higher. Soon. Look for carpooling options.

I am glad I have opted for not buying a new car at this point. Even though my one is getting older.. It could be that we are heading to the revival of public transportation in USA..
