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

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
