    Yep..it was 1.45 here on 12/27

    now it is 1.99

    still like it better than 4.00 but I'm sure it will go back up with OPEC controlling supply

    Yes. And I have an MT tank in on vehicle. Went from 1.41 to 1.79 within hours last night. I hate that.

    Same here it went up about .30 cent, guess people will have to start staying home more again, and bring it back down

    Manhori - Monday I went to town, filled up my F250 at 1.45 - came BACK an hour later... same gas station I passed... $1.59!

    Yesterday, again same station - was at $1.69 in the morning... by afternoon it was at $1.89! [​IMG]

    No new "tanker trucks" delivered... just price gouging...

    Supposedly the war in Gaza is the latest excuse for the rise- I am refilling the jerry cans today, in case we need the generator- if we don't, it goes in the trucks.

    in the news several things have happen to drive up gas prices:

    opec dropped 2 million barrels of oil, from going around

    countries over seas are stock piling oil because of what is happening in the Gaza strip



    did it make news where you live that a helicopter crash happened in louisiana. the helicopter was taking guys offshore. all died but one and he is critical condition with a lot of injuries.

    my dh works offshore, he flies on helicopters all the time.

    very scary

    It is going up here also. They are blaming it on the war with Israel and Gaza and the fear of disruption w/ OPEC's oil cut. As if! How long has that been going on? They have just been looking for a reason to raise prices again and they think they found one. [​IMG]
