Summer blend reformulation.
The refineries shut down in the spring to reformulate to the EPA mandated summer blend. Fewer refineries = lower capacity = lower supply with static demand = higher prices.

YMMV

If only there were oil in your state.

I was wondering too. Up to $2.69 here from $2.30 last week.

Blood for Oil ---- Plasma is going up too

It always goes up in the spring/summer because people travel more. More demand for it. And that oil thing.
Link Posted: 5/3/2015 8:09:51 PM EDT
It's a good day. Diesel is 2.47 A
and gas is 2.67.

Probably because of summer coming. And Baltimore.

I think it has something to do, vaguely, with supply and demand.

I'll grant you that there's some fuckery that goes on with oil production and distribution but the principles are at play nonetheless.

Seasonal demand. You haven't learned this by now?

Cause its summer and we get fucked every summer. That's what gas does, it goes up.

You know all those oil pumps they have been installing in the western states......


....They are turning them off to drive the price back up.

Basic economics.
Goods are produced when profit is high. Goods are not produced when profit is low.

Diesel Is cheaper now. Diesel still hasn't moved.

I'm good with it.

Bc the common people had too much extra money to spend and boost the economy.

This is why I bought a tiny car with high efficiency. I don't even notice gas as an expense anymore.

Here it has gone up 30 cents in under 2 weeks, and no one has said shit about it! What gives???

MAYBE it has to do with the fuckin' EPA and their summer blends, I don't know because even the local news hasn't said shit about it! But I damned well know the gas stations that was raising their prices by 3- 5 cents per day weren't selling the entire contents of their underground tanks (10,000 gal +) in one day and replacing it the next with another tanker of higher priced gas.
Link Posted: 5/3/2015 10:01:21 PM EDT
I went to town for the first time in four weeks yesterday and had to buy gas, it didn't hurt so bad because it is still a lot cheaper than a few years post Katrina.
