Just like I predicted Gas was 2.62 a gal yesterday morning, 3.03 here as of 9 am. PLUS YES EVERY ONE of the 17 gas stations were all up to at least 2.99 by 9;15. It will settle there until the electric stays off in the gulf for 2 days . Then 3.75 here we come !!!

And you donít think there is guberment intervention currently at play with fuel requirements that influence price?

What burns me is they jump prices on gas in their tanks. Not on the next deliveries that may actually have seen a jump

Good prices, around here it has been in the neighborhood of $3.25 for most of the summer, sometimes a bit higher.

Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Wait a minute, I thought you said Big Oil was working with Biden to DROP prices.

"What is going on ? Gas dropped 31 cents per gal here yesterday!!! To me it looks like they are trying to take some of the pressure off him. Don't say crude dropped. It never mattered this fast in the past . Crude drop 3 weeks later gas go down 3 cents."

Prices on that stuff doesn't fluctuate daily either.
