The Dacia Sandero?

Yawn. So tired of having to listen to people who own SUVs or huge sedans complain about the price of gas.

Good, maybe it will slow down the Frakkers

Wow. Why has it been going up here in California?

I wonder if these are the same guys who masterminded the Orbo scam.

I would be really happy if diesel dropped to say, 30 cents a gallon below regular. And so would millions of farmers and truckers.

I seem to recall Fartbongo saying he would be happy if gas was $5 a gallon.

Climatologists won't be happy about this. But then they're never happy, so fark them.

It's because of the frackers that we have more petroleum, which helps drop prices.

I drive a little sedan and I still complain about the price of gas... It's just something universally done.  I would occasionally give my classmate a hard time about how much less it costs to drive my little Focus vs. his pickup, though.

I'm pretty sure due to the way that crude is converted into gasoline and diesel that will probably never happen again.

The only thing I could see doing it is a refinery disruption that only affects the unleaded. And of course in that scenario it would just be unleaded spiking above the diesel and not the diesel falling.

If it's going down I wonder why it went UP 8c/gal around here Friday.....
 
2013-01-13 07:36:43 PM
I don't know all the conversions, but in the fall they were saying gas would be under $1.00/L by Christmas. While it has gone down slightly, the cheapest I've seen it is about $1.17/L, from $1.30ish.

In other words, I'll believe it when I see it.

Gas prices cheaper/lower? - Not if Greedway and Mug-U-thon have their way.

Funny how the price of everything else goes up because of gas prices, but when gas prices come down . . . ?

I just want to know why the picture in TFA is of someone putting Diesel fuel into a Flex Fuel vehicle. Or do they just joke around with the colors some places?

Around 10 years ago when gas went up, it would be 03 or 04 cents. Now it jumps up 50 cents at any given time. I have a coworker who said that as a gas station employee a few years ago, his manager would send him out around the neighborhood to scout out competitors prices, and then they would raise or lower prices based on his info.

Shouldn't we *thank* the frackers for helping drive down the price, or did you miss Econ 101?

Given that the price of everything else is affected by the price of gas, subby, there should be an impact.

Some stations have their coloring all wrong. The local BP is great at doing that. I think their diesel pumps have yellow handles.

Forecasters say ample oil supplies and weak U.S. demand will keep a lid on prices.


And yet, GDP for 2013 is expected to be around 2.5% and then 3.0 to 3.5% in 2014.

Back when diesel prices skyrocketed the major supermarkets raised their prices to account for shipping costs. Now that diesel prices have fallen, have produce prices? Nope... farkers!

It will probably drop to a dollar a gallon the second work transfers me to the place 8 miles from home.
