Farmington ,New Mexico ---- Discount stations such as grocery stores are the cheapest here. Today they are posting regular at $2.97, diesel at $3.09. Brand named stores are $.06 to $.10 more. Nearly all fuel here comes from a local refiner that's 15 miles away. The same refiner supplys fuel to stations in Albuquerque , and after hauling it 180 miles, sell it for less. Go figure !!! ???

ULSD (Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel): $3.29/gal
Regular Unleaded: $3.05/gal.
Shell station in San Diego, CA on 09-01-06.

Former diesel fuel: LSD (Low Sulfur Diesel) was $3.39/gal
And Regular Unleaded was $3.27/gal.
At this same Shell station on 08-18-06.

2air’ mentioned a good idea:
Moderators please combine this three-year-old thread with:
Off Topic Forum thread: "Fuel Price Watch", started 09-23-05
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f161/fuel-price-watch-18423.html

And it would be great if the combined "Fuel Price Watch" thread
Could be moved to the appropriate Forum:Towing (Hitches, Braking, and Vehicles)

(Thanks 2air’ for all of your good ideas and observations!
The ladies should invite you to be guest speaker at their rallies!)

Bill

Interesting to note that this thread started a year and a half ago at $1.50 and now today here in Sumter it hit $2.50 and they're dancing in the streets.

Mid-MO: Regular gas = $2.39 That's down .20 in 3 days in two different drops. What's happening here? No move yet in diesel-why?

Today in Milton, ON unleaded was around 88 cents per litre which is about US$3.00 per US gallon. Earlier in the week it was down to 79 cents per litre which is about $2.66 per US gallon.

My guess diesel will not come down like the gasoline prices have. Probably because diesel is used so much for winter heat in some parts of the country.

Here in the Omaha area I see 89 octane (10% alcohol) going for $2.46. Has dropped about 40 cents in a relatively short time. Nice.

Kiplinger Letter

For all of you Kiplinger Letter readers out there.... and other interested parties.. this blurb just came out today......thought this was interesting.. if forecast plays correct, it shows how we sit on a teeter-totter....called the oil can... so hurry-up..fire up your tow vehicle while can.. get that Airstream on the road.. it's time to take a road trip...
The oil price outlook has taken a surprising downward shift
in the past couple of weeks. Why? More-sanguine forecasts
on this year’s hurricane season. No sign so far that tensions with
Iran
are escalating. Oil inventories that are more plentiful than expected. And the psychological boost from the big discovery in the
Gulf of Mexico, even though it probably won’t produce a drop of crude until 2009 or so.
IF there’s smooth sailing, expect oil at $60 a barrel by year end
and the average U.S. pump price for gasoline around $2.25 a gallon.

hi az' and others...

gas prices usually fall after labor day...
and i'd agree the news about the gulf oil discovery
and the non-hurricane
and the quiet regarding iran all play into pricing...
what might happen next week if there is any terrorist activity?

also when bigwigs make public statements prices follow.
so this week when some of the world experts said
oil supply risks are low and prices should fall...
they started falling...
last spring a saudi king said crude prices were too high...
and over 2-3 days prices dropped 10 bucks...

recently i read about a concept called 'storage arbitrage'...google it.

this ny times piece about how new investors are pushing price issues made sense to me...

while oil and gas trade on the futures market as commodities...
storage is yet another layer in price supports...
and the arbitrage market for storage is a new investor game...

investing in petrol takes on so many forms...
while we just think about what comes out of the pump....
or out of the ground...

i agree time for a road trip!

cheers
2air'
