  • whats with the gas $$$$$

    do you think the the auto company's have something to do with it ?

    i think they do they asked the oil co to drop the price so the people will forget the high prices and start driving the big SUVs again there for the oil co can still make a lot of $$$$$, and people will stop looking for other types of fuel or other ways to do away with oil
    gas now in my town is down to $1.65 and still going down

    i love it but when and how high will it go back up
    what do you think is going on

    I believe the speculators left the market and OPEC is worried about the drop in demand. I hope this does not slow our quest for becoming self-sufficient.

      I hate to say it Mark, but historically that's what happens.

              Gasoline selling at $4.39 a gallon has been a good eye opener, if we become complacent with cheaper prices shame on us!

                What about the prices of heating oil? I don't know anyone (residential) that currently uses oil for heating around my area. It's either natural gas or electric heat pumps with resistive electric backup. Straight resistive electric heat = BIG $$$ and has for a long time.

                I could price Diesel fuel, but then it is heavily taxed whereby 2D heating oil or off road (farm use only) Diesel isn't.

                  We get gouged up here with gas prices. In southern Ontario, in Canada, we are currently paying roughly 76 cents a litre right now, while gas is $1.69 a gallon just across the border in Michigan. Well, at 3.78 litres to the gallon, we're paying the equivalent (including dollar exchange) of about $2.33 a gallon for the same gas. And we're (Canada) a gross exporter of oil and gas to the U.S., so you think we'd be getting it cheaper than you guys (kinda like the Saudis pay next to zilch for their own gas). But no - our government really fleeces us, and takes a ton in taxes from gas, compared to on the south side of the border.

                  Oh well. Beats when we were at the peak a few months back - $1.35 a litre, or about $4.33 a gallon.

                    It would be interesting to compare fuel prices with the taxes removed.

                      On 60 Minutes last night [click to watch video] the Saudi Oil Minister said it costs about $2/bbl US is bring oil out of the ground. He also said they are worried about the current $43/bbl price, they want it back around $55 as a minimum. They are doing it for us, raising the price that is. It's in our (not Saudi ARAMCO's) best interest he said.
