Today our gas prices rose $.40 to $4.15/ gallon. Diesel is $3.99/gallon. Recently read on the Internet how the Dems went out of their minds against Bush when gas hit $3.00. Where's the outrage now? The Kenyan Buffoon is taking a victory lap for something he had nothing to do with. What has this imbecile done to control gas prices which are driving up our inflation rate. It's time for true Americans to take back our country from this Kenyan. Gas prices alone will doom this idiot in 2012.

In NV (where everyone is unemployed, where it's hundreds of miles between point A and point B) our gasoline is well over 4$/gallon. I have a Subaru turbo WRX that can only burn premium. Best I can find is $4.30/gallon.

That makes it 3 tanks of gas to get from Reno and Las Vegas one way (at what, $50-80 bucks/tank?) Just to get to Carson City from Reno and back you're looking at maybe $35.

To get to Elko (you know, the home of government supported cowboy poetry) from Reno and back again maybe better part of 2-3 tanks.

Go to a HT in Portland and you're doing a 1000 mile round trip.

It's killing us (and I have a good job.)

Well......things are going to improve ( ? ) in a little while since a Canadian company is going to put a big pipeline through some parts of the good old USA. ( TIC ) They don't have a presidential "permit" ( I think it was called ).
They are going to do the eminant domain thing ( my spelling aside ) it is not right. Some Oklahoma people are fighting it here in the Okie state but some guy who is for it is talking about the big bucks it will mean to Oklahoma. It will proably get done even if we don't want it since somebody wants that money. Our state is just like almost every other state we need money and it talks so well.

I think I remember Obama saying something about if his policies are implemented, energy prices will necessarily skyrocket. Seems like he has been successful on that policy.

Weird here diesel is 20 to 25 cents higher than gas. I hate the futures markets. I hope the speculaters lose their arses.

I just filled up this morning (TX/OK border) Diesel was $3.77 and cheaper than the lowest octane gasoline. I don't remember the last time I saw that - if ever. Oh, it was a Conoco station. Another Conoco station 1/2 mile down the road was $.10 a gallon higher across the board. It was a Choctaw casino/convenience store. I guess the Choctaws have to get their per gallon cut just like they get $.50 per hand on Black Jack.

Strangely, here in PA our prices went DOWN 8 cents/gal a couple of days ago.

A friend of mine told me that on delivery to his stations late last week, the retail price of gas had dropped $.12 and that we'd be seeing lower prices at the pump soon.

Gasoline slump drags oil prices to second big drop




By Gene Ramos and Matthew Robinson
NEW YORK | Wed May 11, 2011 5:07pm EDT

(Reuters) - Oil prices tumbled over 4 percent on Wednesday after an unexpected rise in gasoline stocks amid slowing demand sent prices into a tailspin, triggering a five-minute halt in trade and fueling the second big commodities sell-off in a week.

The momentum of gasoline's biggest fall in over two years washed across the oil complex and hit everything from silver to copper to the euro. Early losses stemming from weak Chinese industrial output data and gains in the dollar tied to Greek debt woes spiraled through the day, setting off sell-stops.

The abrupt tumble drove oil volatility to its highest close since mid-March as traders struggled to figure out where markets might find equilibrium after diving more than $13 a barrel from their peak just last week.

"The gasoline market continues to run crazy. Last week's steep slide has increased volatility in the market, and we are still responding skittishly to that," said Gene McGillian, analyst for Tradition Energy in Stamford, Connecticut.

"The underlying fundamentals haven't changed enough to see this kind of price change. The market is nervous."

Unlike last Thursday's precipitous fall concentrated in the crude oil market, activity focused on gasoline, which fell after the first rise in stocks in 12 weeks and as traders reckoned it less likely that flooding would affect refineries bordering the Mississippi River.

Trading of crude and refined products halted after gasoline futures dropped 25 cents, the limit down, tripping a five-minute circuit breaker aimed to calm feverish markets. It was the first time the breakers had been hit since the financial crisis in September 2008.

Gasoline fell further after trade resumed, breaking technical levels. Total volume reached a record 240,000 lots.

Brent crude settled down $5.06 to $112.57 a barrel. U.S. crude fell $5.67 to $98.21 a barrel, after touching as low as $97.50 a barrel.

U.S. gasoline futures suffered the biggest daily drop since September 2008, with the June contract settling at $3.1228 a gallon, losing 25.69 cents, or 7.6 percent. It was the biggest loss in dollar terms since September 2008.

Rising fuel costs this year have fueled calls by U.S. lawmakers to cut down on speculation in oil markets.

Those calls grew louder on Wednesday, even as prices fell, with a group of 17 U.S. senators calling on regulators to immediately crack down on "rampant oil speculation" by hastening planned rules to limit concentration.

For about a week, Rapid City regular was $3.59, after being $3.69 most of April. But today I noticed it had returned to $3.69 again. So much for that spring 'bargain'.

BTW, Buzz...that class envy showing in your sig lines is nice to see you hanging onto. You really should try to become a South Dakotan, rather than hanging on to that Michigan thugocracy you were brought up in. But I do see why you are so close to Obama in your philosophy. Were you at one time a "community organizer" as well?

UB, it could have been worse. He could have been from Chicago instead of Detroit. Then they wonder why they are not accepted by the locals. When I lived in Houston we were besieged by refugees from Michigan in the late 70's and early 80's. There were many bumper stickers saying " Welcome to Texas, Now Go Home ".
