The price of oil per barrel is $78.23. Amazing. Last week gasoline was $2.35 a gallon. Today it's $2.59 a gallon. .24 cent increase in less than 7 days. Will it continue to climb?

What say you?

More than likely. Put us on a roller coaster, at the very least. Up, one day. Down, the next. Back up... and then up again, ........ Rarely down.
I see alot of stations now that have blocked off the cents portion on their
boards because it changes so gosh-durned much. The stations that don't yet have the computerized price per gallon signs anyways.
I'll just put 10.00 - 15.00 in my car and when I see it cheaper, fill it up.
Usually it's the weekend when we get to a Costco or Flying J.

Looks like I'll be wearing the Carhart insulated coveralls and riding the Suzuki DR to work this winter. **Brrrrrr**

Two weeks ago, I recall $2.39 at 1:15 p.m. and $2.55 by 3:00. Subsequently, it went to $2.59 and now is $2.75.

I fail to see any justification for types of jumps immediately upon the futures cost rising. Can anyone on this earth make me understand it? I seriously doubt it.

Overall, if we compare to the 70's, gasoline is actually a bargain but it is just plain STUPID the way it goes up so fast and down so slow.

My prayers continue to go unanswered. Still praying for $6-7 a gallon.

Then we can rebuild our cities for people rather than cars, bring back the streetcars, even to the smallest of cities. It will be the best thing ever to happen to this country.

Yes, And go much much much deeper into debt. Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.
