Another Gas Hike? Why?

Postby Madison » Thu Mar 16, 2006 4:33 am

Ok, I've been out of the loop for awhile and have no clue what's going on in the world of gas right now. About 4-5 weeks ago or so, the prices were:

2.00---cheapie
2.09---mid grade
2.19---high grade

Now they started climbing a bit at a time, and as of Tuesday they were:

2.29---cheapie
2.39---mid grade
2.49---high grade

Now two days later the prices are at:

2.49----cheapie
2.59----mid grade
2.69----high grade


What on Earth did I miss? 8-o :-[ 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Lol. :-b

Thanks for the link! ;-D According to the article:

Pump prices have gone up even though the cost of crude oil has remained relatively stable during the same period.

But that's probably going to change, some analysts said, because crude oil prices are expected to rise sharply in the coming months.

Thanks for the info though! I appreciate it! ;-D

That's it I'm finding an alternative mode of transportation. Ugh, but a bike means I'll have to exercise. I know, I'll get a rickshaw! Now I just need some poor sap to haul me around in it! :-D
