O/T Gas >>>>>>>

Post by Golden Eagle » Wed Aug 31, 2005 8:05 pm

On the way to work this morning gas was 2.69 a gallon and on the way home it was 2.89 so I filled up. The lady inside said in the morning it will be 3.00. I saw on the news tonight that some neighboring States already hit 3.00. I think I might stay home this Holiday weekend instead of the 300 mile round trip to camp. :(

$3.00 per gallon? I remember when we got our gas that cheap, :cry: those were the days. After we hit $1.20/ litre this morning, $1.04 / litre sounds pretty cheap too.

Yeah also our wages or gas reinbursement is not going up. I work for a company that employees over 100,000 people and they aren't doing one thing about it. Our cost are going up, but where not getting cost of living increases. Everything we buy will go up. I think where headed for another great depression.

I may have to agree with you Nudo7, a recession may be not far away. My prediction, 10-15 months.

2.99 on the way to work this morning and 3.19 on the way home. Our grounds crew filled and topped off the trucks at work this afternoon which is a daily thing and the cost was 500.00 :shock: :shock:

Here in Syracuse NY last night it was 2.66 at 1 station & 3.09 at a station 100yards from the 2.66. The 2.66 station had cars backed up for 1/2 mile. Today I was in Rochester NY & Hess had it for 2.85. All the others were from 3.09-3.29. I'll see what it is in Albany tomorrow. This is going to hurt.
Get out & Enjoy.

How? How is it that gas prices are $1.26/litre in the morning and $1.13/litre 12 hours later on the way home? The gas in the in the holding tanks is surely the same. Gas companies are just as bad as the looters, taking advantage of a horrible situation to line their own pockets more than they already have.

Just back from Albant NY & paid 3.15 on the thruway. Just when I was done filling up the attendant came & got the pricing sign. He was jumping the price again. How high will it go? $4-$5-$6?
Get out & Enjoy.
