Gas Prices?

21 posts in this topic

Anyone have an idea on how gas prices are going to be this summer? I have a 300 gallon tank that I always think about filling up for the boat but never pull the trigger. Thoughts? Comments?

I'm guessing it will go up, but will stay under $3.00. This is a total guess with no actual evidence to back it. It was bad enough when gas was pushing $4 and people had jobs.

Speaking of the price of gas, how is it that oil is under $36 per barrel, but it is almost $2 per gallon of gas? Some one is making money!

The gas prices go up they give you coupons to get 5 cents off

(whoppy do). Gas prices should be regulated. They already ruined the ecomony. There are less people driving and prices are rising.

$5.00 gallon this summer?

If you can contract it out for a decent price I'd fill it up before summer.

Oil prices have been dropping so the refineries or opec decrease production, less profit in production thus supply decreases, prices stay low for awhile so demand goes up, which in turn will lead to price increases, eventually prices will hit a point again where where supply will have increased enough, higher profit margins, and demand hopefully dropped enough thus leading to a surplus in supply which will drive prices down again. It's really simple economics.

Oil is probably a great buy at 36 bucks, but the real question is when to dump it, and when you do where do you move the money without getting hit elsewhere. Just my 2 cents.

OPEC is doing everything they can to get the price of a barrel up. I'd think they'd eventually get what they want and the prices will go up. If I had a 300 gallon tank, I'd get it filled.

I read they are supposedly building or are going to build a refinery somewhere in ND be ready for operation when they drill into the Williston basin oil field in the future. Does anyone know anything more about this?

I work for a transportation company and we buy gas future contracts. Our current price for a 60 day future for diesel is $1.46. Longer contracts are still way under $2.00. Tax still need to be added to this price. Based on that look for gas prices to hover either at the current price of an average of $1.93 or creep up to just over $2.00 in the latter summer. Also, the new Washington administration isn't as likely to fire things up in the mid-east and that will have an impact on prices. But you never know who might do what to someone over there and everything could change.

We used to have a boat house that we kept it in. After it was taken out of there we moved it to our farm where it's been for the past few years. It hasn't been used in awhile, we cleaned it out last year and there wasn't rust but it had gotten pretty dirty in there. Hopefully with another cleaning it'll be good to go. When you buy gas in bulk like this, what additives you need to add to it?

one of the news stations, had an ***expert*** on who claimed that gas would reach $4 a gallon this year. That would be a first if he's right.

Oil went down another thirty one cents today. If gas goes beyond three dollers again there will be some filthy rich people relaxing around the water this year.

What am I saying , there probably is all ready.

Read a story in the paper that said that oil prices/barrel are based upon sweet Texas Crude and unfortunately we get none of our oil in MN from there. Canada is our primary source where the price/barrel is much higher as it is in the rest of the world.

Seems like there had always been a correlation before so not sure why it is divorced now.

I'm betting by Labor Day weekend we will be looking at $3.00/gal at least. And that is assuming there are no natural or man-made disasters to "justify" price hikes.

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
