Gas prices

13 posts in this topic

I was looking at gas prices last year at this time vs this year, wondering where they may go. So I pulled this graph. We were at about 3.25/gal last year at this time. Hopefully they won't drive it too high this year. I think the economy will keep things in check...I hope!

If my business could have the same sales as last year I would gladly pay the higher gas price again.

My prediction is that by Memorial Day it will be closer to $3.00 a gallon than $2.

My prediction is that the prices will stay pretty steady. Perhaps go up to low 2 dollar range. Maybe that is just a wish...

I dont think we ll hit the $3 mark for a while, unless something drastically changes with the economy.

we're going to see another spike and crash, though neither will be as drastic as what we saw this past year.

The worst I can do is 2.47.9 at the First Fuel Bank if I want to lock in today.

One of the news channels just had a report on that a few days ago and AAA is projecting gasoline prices shouldn't go much over $2.50, lets just hope thats the way it will play out

Gas prices always go up for the summer driving season. The will get to $.00+ again in the future. It won't be for a year or 2.

I think alot of what happen to the gas prices last year, was those that buy the oil speculated that it would go high and thus drove the price up. Hopefully they will not go crazy this year, last year being an election year did not help. The publis got the short end of the deal, and still are.

Wow Charley that prediction made my day! Although very unlikey it will ever go that low! grin Jk bud, but I'm 17 and fish alot of tourneys during summer and when working 6days a week at $8.75 an hour barely get you to the next landing it really adds the spirit of competition to winning one! A kid having nightmares about gas going up, you know things are getting pretty bad. I pray it wont go above even $3 though I'm sure it will smirk

    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
