Default Barreled oil and gasoline THREAD

I drive 50 miles one way to work , if gas costs more per gallon , that is less money I have for me and my family . Also , we have 12 delivery trucks at work , the more fuel costs per gallon the more my dept. costs are . This cuts into our profit and my bottom line also .... Oil prices have a direct effect on fuel prices at the pump .

It wasn't too long ago we were paying $4+ per gallon out here. Today's prices are a dream in comparison.

Guys like Travis make their living on higher oil prices , I can see his points .... He has more disposable income to spend on "stuff" when oil prices are higher , Thusly , when gas prices are lower I have more money to spend on "stuff" .

Sitting at $1.70's a gallon in my part of Ohio at the moment. Hasn't been like this since 2008. The comroderie at the pump is entertaining. I remember seeing guys with 34 gallon gas tanks look like they just lost their favorite pet after a $4.00 a gallon fill up. Don't miss those days

Wow, I gotta move south.
In my area it is $1.05 per liter which works out to $4.00 per US gallon.
Ouch !!

That and all your taxes is the price you pay for the "FREE" medicine you Canucks beat us Yanks over the head with.

Just remember, what goes down must go up... in the world of oil production. Besides, while it seems we are getting a break and will do so for awhile, our groceries like eggs are going up. The terrible drought this year will also have an affect.

Everything price-wise is going up but our paychecks.
