Re: F... gas prices

I think part of the problem is that we all got spoiled with historically cheap gas prices inthe 90's. Cars built in the 90s took advantage of that and now were paying for it. I filled up at lunch for 3.65 (Kroger Glen Allen), which is a ridiculous price. 2.50 -2.85 should be the norm now-a-dayz.

^ I honestly think it is just all a game that the rich and oil companies play with us. I honestly don't even cry about it anymore not worth the effort just another thing I can't control.

Re: F... gas prices

You get what you pay for...in this case the ability to independently drive to where you want to go and enjoy your freedom. If the price isn't to your liking perhaps it's time for you to lend strong support for better public transportation?


I know the word "public" is scary to some of you but the benefits to your pockets outweigh your disdain for "big" government.

Public transportation will not work in our area because its to spread out. Now if I lived in DC and when I vist DC its great. I don't have a problem with public transportation were it makes sense but some areas try to fit a square peg in a round hole.

Re: F... gas prices

public transit in dc is a joke, nothing ever works and it cost so much might as well be comfortable and drive yourself

here in woodbridge the wawa at miniieville and caton hill has gas at $3.77 which is about what gas is down here, it's $3.82 at the exxon at minnieville and old bridge. i was in springfield today and the gas at the exxon at rolling rd and braddock rd is $4.05 and thats f-ing retarded. i don't understand how gas could be $.28 different with about 10 miles of each other. f-ing oil companies, there needs to be some sort of gudieline as to where the gas prices should be. there is no reason at all that gas prices should have that big of a difference when they are that close to each other.

and although i like the idea of a hybrid i think right now is the worst possible time to buy one. you are most likely going to pay $2-3k more than you should for the car. and even though you will be saving 20 to 30 at the pump it's gonna take a lot of fill ups to make it worth while.

Lol every year on the news without fail:

winter - "gas prices are expected to go up as demand is increasing for home heating as teperatures drop across the country"

summer- "gas prices are expected to go up b/c of demand as travelers fill up for road trips vacation plans...."

Its 4.16 for premium at my cheap gas spot in Baltimore. Its about 4.35 for premium in silver spring right now.

Insane, im spending 16 bucks a day to go to work assuming a low-ball estimate of me getting 22.5 mpg on 90 miles round trip.

Re: F... gas prices

IT makes me laugh that it will go up in a heart beat but take for ever to go back down. The whole system is a ****ing joke.

Re: F... gas prices

Funny how people don't seem to care as much as they did 2-3 years ago. It's like we've gotten used to getting robbed at the pump. $5/gallon is probably right around the corner.

So then whats stopping it from going tp $7.00 by 2014?
$10.00? $11.00? $12.00?
Since the USA sucks down mammoth proportions of gas every year I'd say its time the govt started making some seruios rules or our lifestyles are going to be foxxored big time.

Re: F... gas prices

Simple supply and demand. Some of the largest countries in the world are becoming industrialized. With the rise of demand from India and China there's no doubt prices will go up. I love how people love to preach free market and capitalism -- then bitch when oil companies charge more for gas. They should be doing what nets them the highest profit. Who here has stopped driving? I haven't. It will take a much high price to get me to quit as well.

It's time to start finding renewable energy sources. Not bitch about gas prices.

This.

My family were trying to figure out which grocery store is best for us, and have stuck with Giant Food strictly for the Shell Gas Points. From our shopping, I save $1.20/gallon at Shell today, paying $2.69/gallon. Was able to fill up both cars for around $70 (around 26 gallons).

Luckily, my job is 3 miles from my house, so I fill up the minivan once every 10 days or so. My wife commutes to Rockville and back (70 miles round-trip) 3 days a week, so she's filling up once every 4 commuting days or so.

I remember in college being able to fill my 12 gallon gas tank for less than $10. And my 88 Accord got 30+ miles to the gallon. Damn, I wish I still had that car.
