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

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
