I've been hearing rumors that gas may hit 3 buck a gal. anyone hear anything similar...
I heard that the US oil reserve is really low now and shortages may be in store in the summer.
In California it is already $1.919 for no name regular. By this summer we probably won't have the electricity to pump it.
We are up to $2.03 here in CA.
It cost me $90 to put 18 gallons in my truck here in Iceland but it's worth it to have my Big Ugly Blazer to wheel the tundra!
Supposedly the price in Cali has leveled out. It still sucks but the one great thing we have over new car owners
is we still don't have monthly payments, cheaper insurance, no smog test and registration is cheap. In the end
I still think we got the better deal. Plus we get to go topless
the price of gas up here in manitoba canada is 81.9 cents a liter for 87 octane. that is about3.72 per gallon and i've heard it's going up more. i really hope not. i get like 4 mpg with my truck.
IF IT AIN'T BROKE,YOU AIN'T TRYING HARD ENUFF
2.15 for premium here in Sac, CA. I just heard on the news if the state cant stop the rolling black outs to the cheveron refinery, they say there will be a gas shortage. Which means
$$$ for gas prices. I know my K5's are going to be hungry if that happens.
If you cant go over it...GO THROUGH IT !!! <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.CaliforniaK5Krawlers.com>http://www.CaliforniaK5Krawlers.com</A>

It was $1.85 -$2 places in Nebraska over Memorial Day. Now $1.64 to $1.80. They are brainwashing us into thinking $1.50 is cheap!
It is pretty funny how everyone wishes it was $1.50 now, when just about a year ago that was way too much. It pretty much sucks, but what can we do? We might be able to get everyone to go to one certain gas staition and ban the rest. That way the ones that are not getting the business would have to lower their prices to get it and then the one that everyone was going to would have to do the same to keep the business. That would mean everyone would have to stick with it for a while thou, and I don't think it could be done. So far It seems that there are a whole lot of people that are very content just sitting around bitching about it then doing something about it. You mention a idea and all they do is shoot it down, but won't sugest one of their own because that would mean they might have to go through with it instead of bitch about it. The United States is a great big gas hog, which means we should have the power. But for some reason we just let the big gas companys have all the power. Maybe its just me, but it seems like when a group of people get together and stick together they can accomplish alot. All I know is this is going to either get very interesting before it is over or we will just end up with gas prices like they are over the pond. $5.00 a gallon.
Thats my opinion. Whats yours?

The only way we're going to impact the gasoline companies is to have everyone make a concerted effort to do something we pretty much all won't do (and the gas companies know this): Stop driving. Not buying from one company at a time won't have much impact because the other companies will see this shift in demand and increase their prices (increased demand with a stable supply means higher prices). I'm certainly not willing to walk 37 miles to work, but I do what I can by commuting in a car that gets better fuel economy than my Blazer.
I do the same as Steve. I bought a little commuter car 2 years ago when gas first hit 1.75 for the cheap stuff here in Sacto, CA. The blazer just gets run on the weekends. I know my gas doesn't really affect the gas companies, but if we all did it????
Know what I do? Drive a Harley. It gets 40mpg and is almost as much fun as driving the Blazer topless.
They just anouced today a decrease in price. Read this!
