Connersville, Indiana.

Indiana! This is not NYC or LA!

They speculated it might hit $3 today. Is it going to $4 today???

I have heard it is not as bad as the 70's, if adjusted for inflation. What would 70's prices be adjusted for inflation?

I'm guessing you know what I'm talking about.

Dang, I've got a full tank but I can still get it at $2.64 down the street. I'm wishing I had a storage tank to fill at that price.

We've got a couple of stations here that shot up to 3.25 for regular, but they are either price-gouging, or their suppliers are really putting the hurt on them. The norm seems to be about 2.75.
Link Posted: 8/31/2005 9:26:13 AM EDT
I hope it hits $5 a gallon!


SO I can get me an H1 cheap!

$80-$90/pbl is the 1979 rate, we are getting close.

Adjusted for inflation the record price would be 3.52/9 per gallon.

Thanks for the answer. It seems like we are getting pretty close to those levels.

My station just went to 2.899. Other stores in the chain are reporting near riot conditions. I will shoot a mother fucker tonight when I get to work If I feel like my life is in danger.

Did you just post your premeditation on an internet website? That should weigh heavily in you favor if you DO have to defend yourself.

Yup, Fort Wayne Indiana here, $3.69 also.

It went up .20 here yesterday, to 2.87.

I'm afraid to see how high it will be when I get home today.

Gasoline went up $.64 here in 48 hours

Someone from SC yesterday posted a big increase there. I forgot to check my BP barometer this am coming in to work. Yesterday it was 2.499. HOWEVER, an off brand I passed was 2.599 and they are usually 5-10 cpg LESS than BP.

That's not premeditation.

Filled up yesterday morning for $2.59. 5 hours later the wife drove by and it was $2.99. This morning I drove by and it was $3.19. $.60 increase in less than 24 hours. Saw one place it had 87 for $3.39 and people were lining up for it.

Noon news had a story about how owners are now starting to see alot more drive offs than they had in the past.

A friend of mine on his lunchbreak just drove past the BJ's here (Warehouse Club with the cheapest gas in town). Gas was at 2.69, and there were 40 cars waiting in line. They're going to be out of gas before 5:00 unless they have major re-supplies coming in.

This is going to HURT.

Is Canada's gas price lower?

I don't think a 50% tax rate to cover their health care is a fair trade off!

Truckstops in TN,IN,NC,GA are running out of diesel. There is a 50 gal limit on diesel in IN. All 4 major pipelines coming from LA are closed,due to no power.

My brother in law owns a gas station.

Retail prices are usually set by the parent company (Shell, in this case). He only has a few cents (2 or 3) to play with. They do check the retail prices thru credit card transactions.
In fact, it really hurts him as a business owner. Credit cards charge a percentage fee to the retailer per transaction. Gas prices skyrocket, he makes the same 3-5 cents per gallon, but his credit card fees go up dramatically, too. So, he loses profit. big time.

I was working there on 9/11. I was the one who had to walk outside and announce that we had run out of gas. I felt kind of like Jimmy Stewart in Wonderful life, trying to give people a basic lesson in economics. It was hopeless, though. They were just mad.

Remember, they guy working behind the counter just punches a time clock. Getting angry and yelling at him accomplishs nothing, except making you look bad.

And he's probably dealt with 200 assholes before you with at least half joking about robbing him to make up for gas prices. I've switched from concealed to open carry at work and it does no good. I will go home to my family come the end of my shift. I may be a few rounds lighter. But I'll be going home. I've seen many people shot in robberies when I worked on an Ambulance and I've been robbed several times before I worked in a place that allowed me to carry. It leaves an imprint on you. I view every single person that comes through that door as a possible threat to my safety. Not to mention. With the assholes we deal with all day. Try being polite, if your buying other stuff with your gas, it may get you a cup of coffee or a coke for free. I think I'd know.
