  • Gas prices got so high

    I went away for a week and the price of gas went up 20 cents. This morning I needed gas and I drove to my local station, Hess on Long Island(a.k.a. Let's Go J-E-T-S) and just payed $1.99 for gas. My question is,what are you paying for a gallon of gas?

    Ray...the same thing happened here in New England. I, too went on vacation. I filled the Jeep just before we left for Maine and my wife was shocked that it took $26 to fill it.. the Jeep's fuel tank had never been that low. The fuel was $1.53 a gallon.

    We came home Satrurday the 23rd and the fuel prices had jumped to $1.79 a gallon for unleaded regular, $1.89 for midgrade and $1.99 for premium.

    The two Mobil stations in town have the highest gas prices $1.89 to $2.09 a gallon!

        We dont really have any right to complain around here. Since I live near a reservation where gasoline is typically cheaper anyway we are paying 1.57 a gallon. On the other hand it went up from 1.38 before the blackout.
        I have heard that the prices should start going back down after this weekend.

          We're at $1.89 in the Midwest. My sister just flew in from Germany; that's what they pay PER LITRE!!

          Ahem, the prices spiked because of the east coast blackout; it caused several refinerines to shut down and will take a while for them to get restarted;
          AND there was a pipeline break in Arizona.... Really. I'm serious.

          BULLS#@T!!!!! It's the end of summer, Labor Day, and everyone is sqeezing in their driving vacations. Stick it to us, big oil. Thank you, sir, may I have another.

          I would really rather they just raise the prices and jab us in the rear, and say, NO Comment, then insult me with these lame, BS excuses. I ain't that stupid.

                  $1.69 for regular after a .10 raise over night. Funny how they can jump .10 over night but it takes a week to drop .02.

                    We went to Alberta last week and when we left gas was approx. 77.9/L, depending on where you were filling up. When we got into Alberta gas prices were as low as 64.5/L, again depending on where you filled up. While we were there prices jumped to well over 70 cents/L, so we knew we were facing a HUGE jump here at home. Well we weren't disappointed, gas is now 89.9/L here, makes it expensive to get to work and back *sigh*.

                            As of last night it was 1.59/gal for the cheap stuff. I'm not sure what it is today.
                            Why do I *always* have to be the calm one?

                              To paraphrase Yogi Berra "Everyone complains about the price of gas but nobody does anything about it". If everyone boycotted the largest retailer, (which correct me if I'm wrong is Exxon/Mobil and the second largest Shell) until they lowered their price to a reasonable level, say, $1.25 per gallon, the voice of the people would be heard. As long as we keep paying through the nose and not taking any consumer action we can expect more of the same.
