Adam's Gas Price Roundup

Posted by Adam54 on Monday, March 7, 2011

I figured this was worthy of it's own thread, which I assume will be hijacked in due course. Post your local gas price, and if nothing else this'll be fun to look back at in a few months and say "Wow, $3.50. Those were the days."

I saw a range between $3.54 and $3.69 today. I'm assuming by the end of the week that will be a range of $3.69 to $3.85ish. Summer scares me.

How much is it near you?

Well, it's the weekend and they always jack up prices, so it's not all your fault. But gas is up to $3.89 up here already.

surprisingly enough, gas hadn't gone up at the station I use. Still 3.61 last night when I filled up. So much for my theory that my gas tank controls fuel prices.

Maybe they realized you were on to them, and are now waiting until you are lulled back into a false sense of security before they return to using your gas tank's levels to decide when to raise and lower fuel prices.

I am currently thinking that there must be a way to make money out of this by trading "Omicron Gas Tank Futures".

It's a good thing the gas prices weren't linked to Omicron, because I was going to have to turn him in for leaking insider information.

I was just finishing up filling my tank at $3.78, when I saw the guy changing the sign to $3.95. Six hours later it was $3.93. There's no reason behind pricing, except "we'll use whatever excuse we can find to jack them up."

We're between $3.85 and $3.96.  Sick.

I think you're prices are so damn low with such low tax applied and such a narrow profit margin that they seem really sensitive to oil price changes.  Over here, we just get charged "a fuck load" (the technical term) and the elasticity across tax and margin absorbs some of the daily movement.

I also think that Lindsay Lohan is still worth a shag though, so I wouldn't pay too much attention to my thoughts.

. . . you'd be the second-cheapest man-whore on the forums? That's my only guess. Maybe you could just finish your own sentences, buddy.

Gas just jumped from $3.59, where it's been for about 3 weeks, to $3.79 in a day. WTF?

It occurred to somebody that if the public would pay $3.59 a gallon, they would surely pay $3.79 a gallon? I assume the fluctuating gas prices are to keep the public off guard. If they could identify any particular gas station as "the cheap one," or "the expensive one," they would know where to go and where to avoid. As it is, maybe a person will bother driving around for a minute to find a better deal, but that's about as far as they're willing to go, cause fuck it.

The station I go to didn't have their illuminated price signs on this morning, so I assume they were raising the prices. Most of the other stations were in the 3.79 range this morning.

I don't think gas is the right fuel for your skyrocket.

The appropriate comparison was with Astronaut Smurf, who tried to power his rocketship with pedals (though I suppose it wasn't technically a rocketship, since it had a propeller).

I could go back and change it, but I don't want to backpedal.
