(KTLA Los Angeles)   Record high gas prices causing headaches for the six or seven people in California who actually use heavy-duty trucks for work. It's hitting the coal rolling idiots who drive them as big shiny penis substitutes as well, but f*** them   (ktla.com) divider line

What a heavy duty truck might look like. Your dual wheel pickup is probably still light duty.

I fill my hybrid once a month at most. What's the problem here?

WI must be an outlier. I paid $2.89 a gallon today.

Yes, there was a Biden "I did that sticker," but gas has dropped about $0.20 in the past weeks. So maybe someone was happy that Biden stopped at the gas station and lowered the price?

Hey dumassmitter, rolling coal requires a diesel engine. But don't let facts get in the way of your outrage.
It is also helping to push up the pices on everything.

I drive much more than most, so I guess it was a good idea to get a car that gets 58 mpg in hybrid mode (and 28 miles per EV charge).

Gas is not nearly as expensive as it should be.

I wish Biden would start posting a bunch of unhinged tweets so the media had something else to breathlessly report on 24/7. I think it's safe to say we all miss the antics of Donald J. Trump.

See a lot of them, really.  They're older, they're kinda beat up, and they are short on pointless doodads, but they do exist in profusion.  You just don't notice those as much 'cause A: they're just some people working, it's scenery, and B: they're somewhat less likely to possess shiat for brains

Prices were a lot higher in 1973, adjusting for inflation.

Like many business people who ultimately fail, George Moreno has a poor understanding of the future of his sector.

Betcha he's making a "run" to Home Depot for off the books laborers to move the stuff off his actual delivery trucks. He could carry migrants in a Prius too.

I paid $2.93 here in a suburb of Atlanta, and the next little burn over has it at $3.31.  No idea why the swing, but yeah, there were little Jow Bidens on the pumps.  I snickered at the Trump bumper stickers all around me.

Like a few above, I'll say good, and not high enough.  The unfortunate thing is that, here in Cali, where we have the special half-caf double-shot special blend, I saw the price top $6 last week.  In coal rolling territory, it's likely half that.

CA is the outlier. They have the highest state gas taxes and the most restrictive environmental standards for gasoline. Gas always spikes there as the seasons change because the refineries change the blend of gasoline they make from summer/winter to winter/summer.

I have a truck for my business. It gets used for work. I think people that buy trucks and use them as pavement princesses should rot in hell. A 1 ton with a diesel and a long bed is $90k because of that shiat. I have no sympathy.
 
2021-11-24 3:10:19 PM  
Just a personal observation. Owners of V8s seem to leave them idling all f*ing day long. Maybe don't do that.

Only 28 miles per EV charge?  Doesn't seem worth it. Or is there charging stations all over the place (like starbuk's. Misspell intentional) in your area?

gasoline is not diesel fuel subby.  you can't "roll coal" with a gasoline engine... it's unburnt diesel fuel and particulate.

*shrug*

It isn't that historically expensive accounting for inflation, and frankly people need a bigger push to go electric / hybrid.  Yeah I've been paying a bit more, but that's only because I've recently started making more long trips and because I drive a sports car, both things entirely my own choice.  And even then, paying an extra $20-40/mo in gas isn't that bad and can easily be made up elsewhere.  I'm still paying less for fuel than before the pandemic when I was commuting.

I drive a diesel Denali HD, but I work in the oil business, so it balances out. Get WTI back over the $100/bbl mark, and I might buy a new one, just on principle.

28 miles is more than the average commute distance; if you have a charging station at your work then it is likely you won't be buying gas to do any routine things like work, groceries, etc.  Many parking lots do have a few charging stations as well, at least around me.

RAM trucks are the top-selling vehicle in something like 20 states, so I don't really care nor do I want to hear whining about gas prices.

What about those being work trucks? Most of them probably aren't.

Drive as big a vehicle as you're allowed, but keep your biatching about how much it costs to fill it up to yourself. Nobody gives a shiat. Even other truck drivers probably don't want to hear it.

Would be nice if it started to go down around here west of Pittsburgh. According to GasBuddy, everything in my zip code is sitting at around $3.55, which is around where it's been for the past month.

It isn't the taxes or environmental stuff doing this, though.  It has been well below $4 -- even below $3 for a little while -- in the relatively recent past, long after the most recent gas tax hike was passed.

I use my diesel F250 to haul heavy loads and tow heavy trailers.  This is not optional and there is no choice but to pay it.  My prices rise commensureately for the customer.  Not fun for anyone.  This is not a few people, this is a ton of contractors everywhere.  For those who say artificially raise prices, THAT DOES NOT WORK when the work needs to happen regardless and there is no viable substitute at this time.  You are only shooting yourself in the foot when you need something that comes by truck.

When I don't need to haul something big or heavy, I'm in my 37 MPG Mazda 3. So I'm not one of those d-bags rolling coal for the fun of it.  Just trying to get a job done.

If it's a toyota...

Toyota purposely limits the cycling of the battery to extend its life span.  It's why they offer the warranty on the electrical powertrain that they do.

For example... it is possible to get a prius to almost 70mpg, but it cycles the battery so hard it starts losing its ability to store a charge in like 5 years vs the 10yr 150k warranty toyota offers for unmodded

If I'm only doing home work lunch work home, I'm well under 28 miles.  I could make it through a lot of entire days only charging while I sleep.

This. There are actually quite a lot in places like So Cal. They look like trucks being used for work and often have beds filled with tools or lawn care equipment.

If you see a shiny pickup parked in a parking structure, it's never seen a construction lot in its life.

Gas is $5.34 in our town currently. Diesel is about the same. Our snowblower tractor burns diesel at about 1.5/2 gallons/hr depending on if the snow is light or mashed potato. Tractor bills out at $130/hr so it's not exactly killing us. Plus there's only been one storm this year so far.
