Tell me!!!! That gas gusser I got just started licking its chops!!! Man, where does it all stop! Just wait till Iran shakes a finger at the gulf, then gas will go thru the roof...hang on guys, I feel someone trying to pick my pocket again!
Yeah I have noticed, it took us a year to go from $4.24 down to $3.20 here...and one day to jump back to $3.39...and another week and a half to drop back down to $3.27...and we're hearing rumors of $3.50+ by next week. Makes me wish I'd bought that diesel truck I was looking at, and, had planted my fields in soybeans last summer instead of hay.
Don't worry, when Iran blockades the Strait of Hormuz Obama will apologize to them and give them whatever they want. Of course it will still be Bush's fault and we won't be able to buy gas due to the rationing but what the hey.
It has been $3.25 up here in the Northwoods for three weeks. Less 6% dividend on all gas and grocery purchases at their grocery store, which is paid annually for all members over age 65, those under that age get 80% paid back annually and the remaining 20% is held back until they turn 65. I am just waiting for them to jack it up again.
I buy my gas at the local member Co-op convience store and since the manager pissed me off a couple of years ago I have been topping off and keeping purchases between $20.00 and $30.00, and instead of writing a check or paying cash I use a credit card and thenonly write one check each month. This also hits them with a transaction charge for every purchase, while I get a small cash back! I realize that some might say it is petty, but I always say if you mess with the bull you are going to get the horn!!!
Also they always get a tanker delivery every Tuesday so I will not fill up until at least late Wednesday in order to let all the crud that gets stirred up settle out!
On Wednesday I saw a "Grand Opening" Valero that had regular for $2.89. I cut across 3 lanes of traffic to get to the parking lot, and fill up. When I returned to that area for a service call this morning, the price was $3.12 for regular. Still cheaper than most of the other gas stations, but quite the jump in price.
