This is a posting that I would like to stay up dated all the time, I would like to see a weekly report on fuel in various areas, and I would also like to see a fuel post broke down by state in the subject line. I will be posting weekly from now on for east tennessee. Like last night I went and filled up my wifes car and fuel jumped .10 over night, I suspect it will make another jump over the next few days with the 4th being on thursday. For that period I will try to post daily for anyone traveling who may be comming through this area.

On the way home from the office on Friday after the bad performance on Wall Street and another all time spike on a drum of oil, $146, Regular gas at the shell station was $4.61 per gallon. I would like to mention that it was $4.55 in the morning. You can not tell me we are not getting ripped by the gas station owners. The $146 per drum is on futures, that drum was not shipped to the USA, processed and refined and delivered to his gas station between the time I drove by in the morning and when I was on my way home later that day! We should start hanging ephigies wearing service station uniforms from the highest lamp posts! It worked in 1775!

If these folks had to take delivery of the oil they're trading on, how long
do you think this foolishness would last?

Gas shortage, lets see I think it was 1973 the last time we had to wait in line, only to find out it was an odd day and we were even.

Please do something, anything, even if it's rong!!

I hope this dont start any arguements but, All this hub bub on NBC, CBS, ABC, that we have a fuel shortage and the high cost of fuel is because of OPEC is not completely true, it is only part of it. We have the oil to convert, and we could increase existing drilling amounts, it would only take less than 2 years to have a new platform running and producing. Even with all this it will not change the price of fuel because the refineries are only running at 60% capacity and some are running at less than that. So what you have is the oil companies and auto manufacturers controling the oil price because they know that it is just a matter of time before we wont need oil at all. Sooner or later someone is going to go ahead and produce a non oil using vehicle for the consumer and people are going to buy it forcing the Auto manufacturers to follow suit thus loosing a portion of their income from oil rebates and stock.

In Albuquerque I paid $4.54 for diesel yesterday (Smith's food store 5 cent discount)......other places were as high as $4.80. Gasoline is $3.80 to $4.00.
We haven't been anywhere with the Airstream for a while, so I don't know what propane is selling for.

That's a nice website thanks for posting it. I think a lot of people have had the thought of downsizing, or at least trading for fuel economy. It's really not worth it unless the vehicle you're trading in is worth almost as much as what you're buying. With a lot of commuting you might save $150 per month in fuel cost. We only drive the Durango when we're towing or on vacation due to fuel cost, so it should last for many years to come. When I'm ready for another car in about 3 years fuel economy will be a huge decision making factor though.

I think Charlie's right. I'm hardly using the Tundra, though I drive it every week or so somewhere because any vehicle has to be driven from time to time or things start to go bad.

We've had SUV's for more than 20 years. They fit Colorado's road and climate demands and are extremely versatile, but in the future I hope Toyota makes a fuel efficient one that has the strength of a truck. I am unsure the Highlander is that since it's a car underneath, not a truck, and hybrid version is built for speed, not much fuel economy and costs much too much.
