^ A talk show today on the radio said that gas is expected to jump 20 cents over the next weeks because of Katrina. Doesn't much make sense to me but oh well.

It has been at 2.67 for the past 2 weeks here in Appleton WI.

oh it will be over 3.00 by this weekend. im almost positive, the oil companies just like cashing in on whatever they can.

note how mobil one gained 41% in the first quarter or 05... they are rolling in the cash left and right.

here in chicago they did an inside report anything after 1.20 is pure profit and right now gas is 3.00 plus in the city....I feel bad for the people who live in the city their getting killed on gas. But if you can afford to live downtown i guess you can afford the gas.

Theres electric cars, hybrids. Bicycles... No need to scream about oil companies when everyone here bows down, ' lifts the level ' and fills their tanks.

Theres not enough people serious enough about going to ' alternative ' fuels, thus, your all being raped till this new technology is adopted.

Oil companies are in the business of making a profit, to pay their investment holders off.

Personally, I could care less what a gallon of 93 costs. I have 2 decisions. Pay for it or don't. Whining doesn't do a bloody thing in bringing costs down. Actions do.

We are competing against China for oil right now. Their market growth demands it. While everyone here pays 3$ a gallon, what do the China-people pay? ( more then us actually ) .

As my fellow **** said earlier, Gas in the U.K was over 7$ a gallon. In Canada its over 1.25$ Canadian ( In real money, its close to 4.20$ gallon ) . We pay, then complain how bad off we have it.

"here in chicago they did an inside report anything after 1.20 is pure profit and right now gas is 3.00 plus in the city...."

Rubbish. How much after that Buck-Twenty is Taxation ? New Yokr has close to a dollar a gallon in tax.

Methinks A Gallon will be around 4$ before they year ends.

I don't understand how people can't understand why gas prices are going up with the hurricane. they shut down production in the gulf of mexico, which is a decent chunk of the crude oil we get here in the US. It's not gas companies cashing in, it's simple economics, high demand and low supply.

3 liter beater, u have to be one of the most ignorant people i know. u have diareha of the mouth and i hope someone really puts u in ur place. u have no idea what u are talking about, u look like a complete JACKASS.

why are gas prices so high? as D pointed out, its from the azn market. they are using more barrels of oil now then the were 3 years ago and 3 times as mucn as they were 1 1/2years ago. they are devolping like crazy.

not to mention taxing on fuel. euopean countries, pending where they are, pay up to $5 in taxes. but hardly anyone drives a substantional amount so its not a huge deal. not like us in the US.

in america the average tax on fuel per gallon is about $.70. so in reality fuel would be $1.90 if the price is $2.65.

and diesel costs more because the additives needed to help it meet current EPA standards. on-road diesel is about $2.56 and off-road is about $1.50-2.00...

isnt this fun? we need fuel so we will buy it. doesnt matter what is costs...so quit complaining, suck it up and deal with it or find alternatives...

BTW, i dont think america, as a whole, would complain as much if fuel didnt rise so much so fast. i track my mpg and fuel prices and since may fuel went up almost $.70/gallon.

2.79 here now.

to me i would prefer they keep it in one spot for a while. i mean what is wrong with that? keep it at 2.50 for a couple monts rather than jumping from 2.29 to 2.79 and back agian, i think it pisses most people off because they could have got it for 20 cents cheaper yesterday or 20 min ago.
