Angry Gas Prices !!!

The price of 87 octane went up from $1.49 to $1.65 a gallon tonight. Anywhere else experience a jump like this? Makes me want to get rid of my truck. Is this the beginning of a long oil price war?

Diesel is going up .04 tonight at midnight. Will change the fuel surcharge from 7% to 10% in the morning. Nothing some bombs falling from the skys couldn't fix. I think big brother should cut back on the fuel taxes for a little while until things start to even out. It sure isn't helping the economy to have these high fuel prices.

OUCH! And I was complaining about filling mine up tonight for $1.69 for Texaco premium and my wife's for $1.71 for Chevron premium. Maybe we filled them up just in time......

What are you guys driving that you need super unleaded? Super unleaded doesn't have the same burn rate if you don't have a high compression motor. Save your money and spend it on Mobil 1 oil and a good filter.

87 octane went from $1.45 to $1.69 for the off brands on Tuesday. Diesel is still hanging at $1.69. It's going to be an expensive summer.

I thinK you are missing the BIG picture. When we bust up OPEC (can you say orginized crime) And oil is sold at market prices things will be better. We are lucky Russia's economy is in the red because they are selling oil cheaper than OPEC. the real problem is the refineries that produce gas products. Lets rol back some of the TAXES on fuel till we get things worked out. GWB didn't start the fight he is just going to finish it. Man you sound like one of those 3rd world UN anbassadors Stop drinking the coolaid on the network news. We gave him (even the UN) a chance to get his act togeather but he is just a EVIL man. If we didn't do the right thing 55 years ago we would be speaking Germen or Japanese right now. Just the facts.
