What is the top line price?

Gasoline and Diesel could hit 6 dollars very easy.China is a very thirsty Tiger.

Just paid 5.15 for diesel in Skagway, AK this afternoon. If it keeps going up I may just have to live here and forget about going home.

Yes, gas is about $5.00/gal, so I figure maybe I should collect more A/S's and park them strategically around North America, then drive my very low mileage car - or start busing to them. I think it will be cheaper and I'll still see everything.

When's It Gonna Stop????

Yesterday...

$4.05 for hightest!!!!

$4.70 for diesel!!!



Probably more today.

Later week between when I went to work and came home diesel jumped $0.10!!!

I don't really pay much attention to regular gas because my I drive a VW Jetta TDI and the TV is a GMC 6.6L Turbo Diesel. My wife drives the gasssers in the family. Plus it is still too cold here in PA to drive the motorcycle to work. Temperatuers in the mornings are still in the low 40s.

What I want to know is when is this going to peak and settle down. It was pathetic that I was actually happy when diesel was at $4.45 for an ENTIRE week!!!

What I've read is that the price will settle down when our habits change. Also, at $100/bbl is about the break-even for pursuing alternatives (not just bio, but solar, wind, etc).

Oh yeah, we're around 3.88 for regular.
Yesterday we took the Shedlets downtown to a library thing. We used the bus, which cost us a buck round trip, and spent what we saved in gas at DQ. Figured that would help illustrate the cost

We're traveling cross country on I 70. Kansas and Missouri reg. ranges from $3.599 to low $3.60's. $3.799 in Illinois. We filled up just before St. Louis knowing Ill. and Indiana have higher prices and hope to make it to Ohio where prices are a little lower. Fill up again in Pa. before we get to NY and Conn. which also have higher prices. Thanks to the NY Times for an article a couple of weeks ago showing higher and lower priced states and all the state gas taxes.

We're not seeing many RV's on the road and the 18 wheelers are driving slower than I've ever seen to save fuel. The truckers are really hurting and I can't see how the independents are making any money. And we think we have something to complain about—it's the independent drivers livelihood on the line.

Otherwise, there's still lots of traffic and people seem to be driving anyway. We keep wondering if this is our last long road trip.

I fear that in two months we will be missing these low fuel prices.

Reg at the Shell this morning was $4.21 pump your own and diesel was $4.79.
