Funny, I walked out of Walmart today with $48 in groceries - just 4 bags worth, and of that only 1/2 lb of delli ham. It won't be long before $200 is the weekly amout for us. I think that could be another thread "What's the cost of groceries in your area"

Picayune Walmart and RaceTrac - ULead - $1.54 and holding but diesel dropped to $2.49 today - that's good - cheaper in Gulfport, MS.

Clancy, I was thinking the same thing though I don't think I want to read:

Apples, $4/lb., Milk, $19 a gallon, Bread, whole wheat, $8. I obviously don't know the price of any of those things.

Food prices were supposed to be going up because of fuel prices, now I read they are still going up as everyone along the line (except probably the farmers) is making up for price increases they were afraid to make earlier in 2008. Estimate is they'll continue to go up in 2009.

The price of crude will go low enough to support that but the crack spreads are being held a bit high while the refiners and stations make a little money.

The first post on thi thread>>>>>>>>

" What is the cost of fuel in your area?
I've seen a spike in fuel prices just in the last few days.

Reg Unleaded was $1.46 4 days ago. Now $1.65

Diesel is now running @ $1.72

Could you share what the current price is in your area?

Thanks-John"

Posted by John on 2-14-2003 @9:36am.

"mrmossyoneCottonbol beat me to it, just down the street here in Cooterville, TN., USA reglur was a buck39 and falling. I'm still looking for 98 cent. "
Posted by mrmossyone on 12-04-08 @8:35pm.

87- $1.69
89- $1.79
93- $1.89

Diesel- $2.32

Been hearing OPEC talking shock at what their Dec meeting will yield in terms of cutting production because prices have fallen so much.

IMHO, about $2 is reasonable. I surely don't want to see between $2.50 to $4.50 again! I mean personally, I pay right now about $12 more per fill up than I did before this whole thing started several years back. At the peak I was paying about $75 more per tankful. I find it unconscionable that OPEC, who was more than content with the trillions it was raking in before this whole mess started can actually, with a straight face say with prices falling and demand dropping the price of oil is too low.

Don't know about you, but OPEC and the rest of the oil producing nations (minus Russia, who seems hell bent on keeping production levels where they are) are simply shooting themselves in the foot. Everyone and their grandmother is starting to build alternate energy and/or reduced consumption vehicles. Not that I advocate that we should all drive fuel guzzling vehicles, but if they kept the prices where they are right now, like in the past we might just do what we've done, very little, they make the bucks and we drive the big cars. Dunno though, I think this last stint might have just been the last straw for consumers and vehicle manufacs......maybe 10 years from now, big oil won't be as much of a powerhouse as it once was....instead our electric companies may be.

Price jumping all over in STL. As noted in another post, they are blaming it on local price wars. We jumped up to 1.67 for reg and within 24 hours it was back down to $1.54. We've seen some local stations as low as 1.37 which according to the news, is below the retailers cost.

Wholesale gas was at 90 on Friday. It dropped 6 that day.

The only way we are going to get ourselves off petroleum, most of which comes from overseas is to stop using it for cars, trucks, heating, generating electricity. We will eventually run out of natural gas too. Thus high gas prices are essential for national security and for global warming issues. I don't like paying a lot for gas either, but there are larger issues here. I know some of you don't believe there is a global warming problem, but think about the national security part of this.

$2.19/per for reg. We are still the highest around. The Gov. & Att. Gen. are "still" look'n into it.

Global Warming..anecdotal evidence only.
It had been 75 years, that Lake Erie hadn't frozen over when we moved here 15 years ago, it's been open 5 times since 1995.

I paid $1.05 in Littleton outside of Denver today, that was after a 40 cent per gal discount at Safeway. Still $1.45 would have been the least I've paid in several years. What's not funny is our local fuel prices. We're less then 1 hour west of this station and the lowest price between Summit and Eagle county stands at $2.02 with some stations still at $2.39. We always get gouged during ski season but this is the worst disparity in price I've seen to date.
If anyone wants to know how fuel prices are set by Safeway, each mgr. is required to fill out 2 price surveys daily for their local competition. They're a big company but they don't move on price until someone else does and they try to set their price to the average of the survey. Food pricing is a little more complicated. If anyone was really interested I could explain it, but it's fairly boring.

Down 4 cents.

Hi, today at the local Shell Station gas prices dropped another four cents. I give myself some credit for the drop in prices because, my wife and I usually notice the lower prices while riding past the gas station on our Tandem Bike. We cut down on driving, and it seems like the last tank of gas was, well, I don't even remember when I last tanked up.

Regular...................$1.75

Mid-Grade...............$1.85

Premium..................$1.95*

Diesel.....................$2.39

As for global warming: Science and history has shown that the world's ice has been slowly disappearing long before any fuel oils were burned by man. I think it is just the normal life cycle of our planet Earth, sort of like some old men going bald. [my opinion]
