    Re: Here come the gas price hikes

    state tax rates per gallon

    south carolina has only 16.8 cents per gallon going to the state while NC has 37.8 cents per gallon going to the state

    that right there drops the price of gas 21 cents just by crossing the border

    I have no idea why an incident in Egypt should increase the gas prices?! Egypt even doesn't have oil! There are some guys in oil business that love to increase the prices and it seems that they use every single possible excuse to do it! A conflict, war or an incident in the middle-east? Yeah, I am surprised! Say something new, it is thousands of years that there have been wars there and there will be wars in the future too....

    When I was posting it, I knew someone is going to mention this! But still, I don't see a large correlation between demonstrations in Cairo and gas prices in Honolulu. There are international treaties for Suez Canal, and no part of the conflict in Egypt wants to drop the treaty.

    The evening news just reported that many states (eastern I think) where approaching (and may break) the $3.00/Gal. mark. Illinois is not one of them.

    Re: Here come the gas price hikes

    Which country controls the Suez Canal -
    one of the largest petroleum transit points on earth
    and how much of OUR oil goes through it?
    -------------------

    northern suburbs of Minneapolis - $3.24/gal -
    as of 8:30PM -

    but WE really got HOSED a few months ago -
    it was up to as high as $4.49/gal -

    the excuses were:
    "spring cleaning" at the local refinery - "summer fuel" -
    Illinois refinery shut down for "spring cleaning" -
    it was cloudy - it was rainy - it was sunny -
    just the usual BS -

    We were almost down to 3.00 on the reservation, but I drove through today and saw it back up to 3.28. It's around 3.50 otherwise.

    In other breaking news, the sky is blue and the sun will rise in the east and set in the west tomorrow. Still driving to Boston at the end of the month.

    Re: Here come the gas price hikes

    ^This guy. This guy right here.

    Fuel prices have never inconvenienced me in the past and I think it is safe to say that my Cadillac uses far more petroleum than...well, just about any of your tiny, little machines. It is a widely accepted fact that it uses three gallons just being parked with the engine off overnight (though unverified)

    I'd love to tell you how much fuel is by me, but I do not have the slightest idea. Never bother paying attention to the prices, because whether it is cheap or not, I still use it.

    Swipe card.
    Fill tank.
    Repeat every other day. (multiplied by number of vehicles you own)


    I really don't understand the whole MPG consternation. If you are upset about how much a product costs, do not purchase it.

    Here's to $10.00 per gallon by 2014.
    Wouldn't that be something? Think of the traffic we may avoid.
