    Fuel - It's Happening Again

    I know we are tired of fuel threads and there is nothing to be done, but I am curious if this is happening around the country as well. It seems that although I live within 10 miles of two major oil refineries, fuel prices here in the 4th corner of WA are always higher than most areas. This morning diesel is $3.90! By the weekend no doubt it will hit the $4.00 mark!

    Same here in northern CA. We've got several refineries withing 20 miles and the fuel prices have jumped in the last few weeks. Now they say it's the trouble in the middle east causing it. But we were getting warnings of $4.00+/gal as early as last year. They were preparing us. They've always got a reason/excuse.

    Oil's over $100 a barrel and rising. If we don't get to drilling our own oil we will see $5 a gal. for fuel. Wait till we all see the price for any products delivered by truck.

    I got an e-mail that said to quit buying fuel from Mobil and Exxon. They are the two largest suppliers and if they lower the price to get back customers the rest will follow suite.

    Here's a good fuel price check link for California. They may have these in other states as well.

    Re: Fuel - It's Happening Again

    This is a very timely thread. I just bought a little 4cyl 5 speed 2004 Ford Ranger. I am spending right at $700.00 on fuel with the big truck. I am hoping for a saving of $350/ month and a pay back in a little over year with current prices.
    Fuel is at $3.40 right now, up from $3.19 almost overnight. I am betting by the end of March we will be over $4.00.

    Re: Fuel - It's Happening Again

    Why should an Oil Company sell more gas for less money, when they can sell less gas for more money???
    They don't even ask any more, they just reach in to our pockets and take what they want, and then use what ever excuse CNN states for the day!!!
    I think we need the Independent Truckers help again, and this time stand with them!!! But I'm sure that there will always be those that will say that it's not that bad, & always look to the excuse of the day for the answer.

    This is getting to be the biggest farce. Egypt doesn't really produce any oil they just control the Suez Canal, Libya just produces 2% of the oil and we the users are suffering because of them. As was stated CNN predicted that the prices would rise over 2 months ago. I love nature and trees as much as the other person but it has got to get to a point that we as AMERICANS can drill in our own back yard without some lawyer/organization telling us we can't. If something isn't done the price will go over $5.00 a gallon. jmho.
