I guess your living pretty high on that mt. Just because its cheap to you doesnt mean its cheap to me or rest of the world.

And yes, it suppose to go down during the winter, but speculators and traders want that 4qter bonus, so they will inflate it to make it look good on the books. Honestly should not be over 50$ per barrel consider the gloat we have sitting off the shore lines. Remember. Speculators has NEVER BEEN RIGHT on things they THINK will happen and never has. Their soul purpose to make up fake news just to move product at a higher price, simple as that. They will report some random BS in BFE if it they can get a dollar to rise in the market.

West Texas Intermediate will always go up and down.

we should add 50 cents to the price of a gallon of gas for infrastructure repairs. $4/5 a gallon is fine with me.

Gas increases will help the O&G industry again (drill baby drill) as well as Solar/EV industry.

Because I do not have a lot of money, so it really impacts my life when my fuel-bill goes way up.

It's increased about a quarter ($2.40 -> $2.65) here over the last two weeks or so.

I moved closer to work. My office got relocated again. I'm back to a 50 mile roundtrip commute. I'm probably going to move again once the office move looks permanent.

Define way up. If spending $5 more to fill up really impacts you there must be something else in your budget you can cut.

I spent $29.83 on 10/03/18 to fill up my 2008 Honda Civic EX. Price per gallon was $2.699.

My last fill-up was at $3.099, 27 gallons so $83.67, I never let the 36 gallon tank go below about 1/4.

That lasts me about a week, and I still prefer driving my V8 truck over my wife's more efficient CUV.

An increase of 25 cents a gallon would be less than $30 a month, certainly not a big deal.

Exactly. I can easily save $30 if I take a hard look at my budget. Not going out to eat for two weeks would easily save that. Or being more cost conscious while grocery shopping. Cutting the cord helps a lot. I haven't had cable in 5 years.

If there's a will, there's a way,
