Fuel prices

They just slashed for 87 oct. from $3.08 down to $3.05 today. I'm up in Northern Michigan, maybe as tourist season (How come we can't shoot 'em then?) winds down, the price will ease off.

I live in a small town that has the fuel tanks on the river and the ship tankers bring the gas in. The trucks then fill up and transport it 100 miles or so, and those stations sell it for about 5 or 10 cents cheaper than in town here. When asked about the disparity they (Exxon, BP, Shell,--- They all haul out of the same place) go into a "zoning" spiel, blah, blah, blah and smoke. I certainly don't want the government to get involved but its almost like they're begging for it! Fog

$2.71 in Ocala Florida today. Floridas senior population has stopped driving except when nessasary. Me included. I figure I save enough by doing less driving here that I can still make my fall trip in the Airstream. I also have slowed down - 55mph - getting lots of "fingers" pointed my way as the traffic has not slowed. As a country. we are pretty darn irresponcible

price gouging

Prices going up anything more than 10% in a 48 hour period would consitiute price gouging. Especially if the increase is associated with a yet to occur natural calimity Any station that makes such an increase needs to be reported immediately to the better business bureau and the owners and management should be stung up and flogged.

Which gas station is that? In the Exeter area, I usually have to travel all the way up to the Greenland truck stop to get a deal like that.

$2.59 - Ocala Florida - 8/26/06. Almost sounds cheap. I remember putting together change to buy a couple gallons, at $.25 per gallon, for my 1940 Ford coupe. This was only 52 years ago - 1955.

I'm assuming the "$1.09" is Canadian currency...is that a correct assumption?

$2.499 at Flying J, I-75 FL/GA border yesterday. Filled up my big propane tank at $1.799 and diesel was $2.81.

Back in High Springs, gas is $2.829. Gas in High Springs is much better quality than anywhere else, hence the higher price.
