Too frekin High!!! :-5 The price of gal unleaded reg gas started off @$2.39

4 months ago here in FL! Just yesterday filled up gas tank to the tune of $3.07/gal!!! :-5 (up ".22" cents since just last week) As mentioned before in other threads for our overseas friends that pay $10.00/gal gas, our cars here avg 11 to 18mpg, vs most of their cars that avg tripple that mpg so it's kind of a wash. ;) :) We all need cars that can run on water!!!!

(Then water would turn out to cost $5.00 to $10.00 per gal. So. . . . . )

The poolhall's a great equalizer. In the poolhall, nobody cares how old you are, how young you are, what color your skin is or how much money you've got in your pocket... It's about how you move. I remember this kid once who could move around a pool table like nobody had ever seen. Hour after hour, rack after rack, his shots just went in. The cue was part of his arm and the balls had eyes. And the thing that made him so good was... He thought he could never miss. I know, 'cause that kid was me.

It's running around £0.89 per litre for unleaded. That works out at at around £4.05 per gallon ($7.95 US) or it would except our gallons are bigger than yours.

A US gallon is equivalent to 6 pints (Imperial), so one of your gallons would cost us in the region of $5.90.

:confused: We buy gas by weight over here, 13kg of butane is about £17

http://www.flogas.co.uk/buy-online/cylinders/13kg-butane-gas-cylinder-refill-20mm-regulator/

9kg of propane (which i prefer as even at this time of year butane will freeze overnight. is £16

http://www.flogas.co.uk/buy-online/cylinders/9kg-leisure-propane-gas-cylinder-refill/

Don't know what that equates to in litres.

Did anyone notice the oil price broke past $80 a barrel today? New territory, that. It was under $20 when the Coalition started bombing Afghanistan. The hike's bigger now than when the Yom Kippur War and the subsequent oil embargo happened in 1973.

If my calculations are correct gas now costs approx. $7.50 per gallon in UK :-3 (@ 1 pound per litre in UK?????)

Makes what we pay here in the US seem not so bad :)

93.7p per litre but up north it IS over £1 a litre-that's in areas where a car is not a luxury. Especially annoying since we export the stuff.

Dunno how long this will last in this province due to our idiot premier wanting to tamper with oil royalties... UGH!!!:-5 I hope this does not happen.

If anyone blinked and missed it, the oil price is up from my previous post of $80 to today's $96 a barrel. That's in 12 days. Gosh. Strike my 4 times higher, make it 5 times higher.

Has anyone offered a reason for it, given that supplies are steady and sufficient at the moment? Is this stockpiling on account of George "Tribulation" Bush and his apocalyptic notions of bringing on the Second Coming?

I believe it's due impart to the declining value of the U.S. $ in relation to other currencies, in addition, as Mars and Jupiter fall into juxtaposition with the sun and moon, coupled with the fact that the Amazon River at this point is at an all time high due to excessive rain, you have a situation that creates uncertainty in the financial markets. Bush & Co. have nothing to do with it.

How can you mention "the declining value of the U.S. $ in relation to other currencies" and then say "Bush & Co. have nothing to do with it"? Who else do you think devalued the dollar? His administration's taken it from $1.40 to $2.05 against the pound, which means you now have to earn $14,600 to buy what used to only cost $10,000 if you're talking imported goods. Have average earnings gone up that much during the Bush years?

Which President kept saying "It's the economy, stupid"?

I am not a Bush & Co. fan, Spot, but there are economic factors that come into play irrespective of who is president. Bush and company just happen to be at the helm at this point. The Home Loan Debacle and massive home foreclosures is an example. The ripple effect of these home foreclosures will continue to clobber our economy for months to come, perhaps years.

Sorry Lon, but if you destabalise the major oil producing region by starting a war there and destabalise the major world ecconomy by spending way more than the country's earning then you have to be held accountable for the result.

Step forward Mr G. W. Bush and claim your reward.

There are a host of Federal Agencies as well as State Regulatory Bodies that prescribe the do's and don'ts of how everything from Credit Unions, Insurance Companies, Stock Brokerage Companies, Finance Companies, Mortgage Companies, & Banks operate. For example, some insurance companies are allowed to operate in some states and not in others.The U.S. Stock Market is overseen by the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission). Banking by the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation). Credit Unions by the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration). Then, there are the non Federal organizations for each of the above that are suppose to keep a reign on individuals and organizations that abuse the laws, they listen to grievances, impose penalties and fines, arrange arbitration. Needless to say, changes are not quickly made and no one person is responsible for what happens day to day.

Also apparently the oil brokers are drunk.







GLAD TO GET LAGER BEER.; SOME OIL BROKERS WHO FORMERLY DRANK CHAMPAGNE.

"Yes," said a Beaver-street oil dealer as he tilted back in his office chair, "the good old days of oil speculation are over; the days when the market would dump 20 and 30 cents a barrel either way in as many minutes, I fear, are past and gone never to return," and the petroleum diplomat laid a leg over a corner of his desk and sighed.

OK, after some conversion, I've worked out that here in Aus we're paying up to $1.50 per litre which works out to be about US$5.30 per gallon. (I think:-3)

That sucks!!!
