So for example the Exxon refinery shutdown in the Chicago area sent a $.25 per gallon spike in the St Louis area. Were we suddenly shifting our gas to Chicago? Nope. We have our own local refinery and the gas produced here doesn't meet Chicago EPA standards. Only if those standards are suspended, can gas blended for another market be used. So the price is jumped by the wholesalers but not due to our supply being compromised. With gas, the law of supply and demand is very blurred and in many cases is purely speculative and at the whim of the wholesaler.

No supply shortage due to stocks of refined fuel at all the depots being full along with good supplies at the refinery itself. Another example how volatile pricing can be.

$2.14 for regular in North Dallas last night at Exxon. So I would imagine QT might be below $2.10 by this morning. Hopefully it holds through Fall camping season

Retail prices in the northwest (where we have been traveling) have been twice as high as gas on the wholesale markets—lowest was $2.60+ and highest was $3.55 at a small station in northeast Cal. On Vancouver Is. has was around $5.00 Cdn. or $3.75 US. Now in Ely, Utah, and paid $3.00 last night. I hope it is less in Colorado when we get home, but gas prices have been sticky and either retailers or distributors are making more than the usual 60 or so over wholesale.

fuel prices

Oahu Island in Hawaii, regular $ 2.89, without searching.

And they have to import fuels from California.

Shows how some states treat their residents.

What is the cost of fuel in your area?

Bear with me, as I switch from Canadian...

Paid $0.909 per litre out London, Ontario way, which felt like highway robbery on our part. (Gas is running closer to $103.9 in Toronto)

Converting, this equates to $3.44 Canadian per gallon. Or about $2.60 USD per gallon
