    Gas prices jumped from $3.05 a gallon (regular) this morning to $3.27 a gallon this afternoon here where I live in Camden County Georgia...this is totally insane! The bad thing is that gas prices are going to go up higher resulting in skyrocketing grocery prices etc...anybody know when it'll end? My truck aint moving one inch unless it's a bonafide emergency and I'm glad I filled it up the other day when gas was $2.99.

    Just moved from that area two years ago. Well I raised my kids in Fernandina Beach and we had a house in Folkston, Ga. [​IMG] Gas is horrible, and yes it will be going up again. And if Khadafi decides to burn his oil wells like I believe he did back in the day, we will really be paying for the gas. I have an SUV because I started doing foster care when we moved here (Ky), I needed the space in the car and still do, but the gas is killing me. [​IMG]

    Fernandina Beach is nice. I go swimming there quite often. ETA; not so much now due to gas prices!!​

    Hey,how are they going to pay their C.E.O.'s their 5 million dollar bonus if they don't raise the price of gas?Do you expect the businesses to pay them?No Joe the plumber gets all the privledges of paying them.Besides Mobile only made 25 billion dollar profit this quarter.Now who can live on that?

    we are at $1.20 per Liter thats a Canadian Liter and thats just average... I was in one town today and it was $1.25 L

    so to do come rough math 4 Liters in 1 gallon...

    $1.20 X 4 = $4.80 a GALLON

    You had $2.99 gas?? [​IMG] Wow, I haven't seen anything below $3.09 in ages! Yesterday it was $3,29, today it's $3.39.

    So why can't they change the refineries to refine the oil from the U.S.? It's better quality than the stuff they bring in anyhow! Oil wells going up all over here, and the oil is just shipped off because U.S. refineries are set up for sour crude instead of sweet crude. Maybe we wouldn't be so dependant on foriegn oil if we would use what we have here?
