Gas Prices

Gas prices over $2.79 and working it way up, but I have not heard near the same amount of complaints I heard in 2006.

Have we all gotten accustomed to the prices or just figured it was a no win battle? I haven’t even heard Zack Perry complain about gas prices.

Will gas prices soon hit $3? Will the usual summer increase happen? Why are gas prices going up now, especially since barrel prices have decreased?

You thoughts and answers.

Crazy Gas Prices

This we have it bad at $2.79, there are some places that are at $6.48. And something to make you feel jealous, there are some places like Kuwait, Nigeria, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia that are below $1. So far below a dollar that Venezuela is actually at 12 cents a gallon.

I got a hole in my pocket…..

After listening to various rumors regarding gas prices and gas availability in the near future. I took my car which was running on fumes to the closest and cheapest gas station. I glanced in the distance and saw a sign that said $2.79. I figured that this is the cheapest I would find as rumors were floating around that gas was $3.09 in some places. I pulled up the pump and here is what I saw.

While pumping my $2.89 gas instead of my $2.79 gas I noticed the pump across the parking lot. Looks like gas at this location was not going to last long, especially since there was cars waiting behind me and probably the same at each pump.


A little more and I would not have gotten any more change from the Grant Bill. Grant would be rolling over in his grave at gas prices like this. This is the most I have ever paid for Gas. It even beat Perry’s all time high he reached last week.


When will something be done to make us less dependable on fossil fuels? Why don’t we use technology independent people are using to get better gas mileage on their cars? One made modified his Suburban to get over 250 miles per gallon. Yes, a suburban at 250 miles a gallon. If independent people can do it, why don’t the car manufacturers start doing this? My guess is that by the time something is really done, gas prices will be near 5 bucks.
