Yesterday I saw a station raise it's prices six cents a gallon within four hours. :angry:

Please chime in with the price where you live and your thoughts as to why this is going on.

Don't suger coat it, tell us how you really feel :lol:

I saw 3.099 like yesterday for 93 however, I paid 2.979 for 93 last weekend. 44$ to fill up.

F-in, rediculous. I have a 13 mile commute though... so I only have to fill up every two weeks. I have it much better off them some other people.

One thing however that really pissed me off the other day. POLICE! They are driving around in big SUVs and the chiefs have their Suburbans, and they drive around with just one person in each one... cause we are footing the bill for their gas, so what do they care? Now that is rediculous.

93 is $3.31 at the station I fill up at here in Everett. Or, it was last night. It has gone up 60-70 cents a gallon in the last month.

Here in CA you know gas is expensive as all hell. Cost $60 to fill up yesterday for 91. It was something like $3.53. Basically I just bent over and paid it. God I love America!

It's getting to about $3.40 over here in MD for 93, I don't see 91 often it's usually 87, 89, 93.

87 is about $3.20/gallon here in MD

At the Chevron that I pass on the way to work this morning:

87 Octane: $2.86

89 Octane: $2.96

91 Octane: $3.06

I give it, ohhhh 45 days and it'll hit $4.00/gallon. :)

Oil exploration and production fuels my economy. The increased price of oil is making oil production companies willing to spend more to find more oil, so they can sell more (which may increase supply, which may decrease prices). This means more jobs, drawing more people here, which in turn means more development for the city and state for infrastructure, and higher property values because land to build on is scarce. This is just on a local level, but I won't be complaining because for I figure that I'll make more money overall with rising oil prices.

Yes, that's a selfish, capitalistic and narrow viewpoint, but if it really began to put the hurt on people, then the people would start to make drastic changes and buy/use more economical transportation, or make a lifestyle change.

$2.74 Was the cheapest I saw.

I think that it's an atrosity! Fuel prices are so high and the oil companies are making billions! It must be a terrible business full of crooks and thieves! blah blah blah

You wanna "teach the oil companies a lesson"? Stop driving your brick! I dare you!

Not directed at anyone in particular.

I take that back, that's directed at the whiners who drive big vehicles that don't need to drive big vehicles.

I am putting a vtec-e head on my 96' civic hatch's non vtech d16y7 which already gets 30-35 mpg (it is called a mini-me swap by the ricer crowd, but they (we!) usually put the ex head on). with the vtec-e head it will get 40-44 ish. civics are just as fun as volvo 850's, if much more spartan. with sways, koni sport adjust, eibach sportlines, and a rear disk conversion it rips up secondary roads. i love cars!!!! cars rock!!! give me internal combustion or give me DEATH!!! I am a swedish ricer.
