Gasoline Prices


Recommended Posts

Be prepared.  Gas and oil prices are based on futures/speculation.  I imagine that bidders are buying up oil stocks right now guessing that our domestic supply will be going down and we will have to buy it from other countries.  

I am urging hubby to fill our thousand gallon tank now.  It will cut us short financially, but will allow us some time to get onto natural gas.  We also have two wood burners.

Not sure of this. However i believe that we in PA. pay the highest amount of gas tax in the country. It supposed to help keep our roads really nice to drive on. What a joke that is.

At last check, the roads in Pennsylvania are no better than they were 60 years ago; but the tax rates keep going up under the guise of improved roads.  Where are the improved roads?

We are funding the headchoppers again. 

Funding them empowers them to chop heads.  When they chop heads, it gives us a reason to increase troops in the area.  When troops are increased in the area, tensions rise.  When tensions rise, drones and missions are enacted.  Drones and missions are good business for government defense companies.  Who has major investments in those sorts of companies?  Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Raytheon Technologies , General Dynamics, stocks are where my next stimulus will go..

Wake up people!  Fuel oil has gone up over 30 cents a gallon in the last month.  Made an order just now when I called.

This will cost us an additional $93 over what we would have paid a month ago. Check with your fuel providers before assuming it's not happening.

AAA: Pennsylvania Gas Prices Rise as Oil Continues to Climb

February 17, 2021 12:35 am·
Author: exploreJefferson
 

Sheetz-Stock2-1024x659.jpgThe average price of gasoline across Western Pennsylvania is four cents higher this week at $2.810 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report.

This week’s average prices: Western Pennsylvania Average:                  $2.810
Average price during the week of February 8, 2021:                                 $2.774
Average price during the week of February 18, 2020:                                $2.724

The average price of unleaded self-serve gasoline in various areas:      

$2.848      Altoona
$2.813      Beaver
$2.864      Bradford
$2.849      Brookville
$2.857      Butler
$2.782      Clarion
$2.836      DuBois
$2.855      Erie
$2.682      Greensburg
$2.874      Indiana
$2.748      Jeannette
$2.873      Kittanning
$2.499      Latrobe
$2.855      Meadville
$2.872      Mercer
$2.641      New Castle
$2.855      New Kensington
$2.859      Oil City
$2.819      Pittsburgh

$2.799      Sharon
$2.873      Uniontown
$2.867      Warren
$2.801      Washington

Trend Analysis:
Pump prices continue to move upward, despite low demand. This is the result of increasing oil prices, which settled at $59.47/barrel at the end of Friday’s formal trading session (West Texas Intermediate). Crude oil accounts for more than 50 cents of every dollar spent at the pump, and prices have been increasing since the beginning of the year. Today’s price for crude is about $4 less than last year’s most expensive price of $63.27/barrel (on January 6, 2020).

Today’s national gas price average is $2.51. Nearly 40 state averages are already more than they were last year, with half of those averages seeing double-digit increases. Demand has averaged 7.7 million b/d since January. The last time it measured below 8 million b/d during the first six weeks of the year was 2001.

Precisely how expensive gas will get this year is largely dependent on crude price and demand. The price of crude is still $10–$12/barrel lower than when the national average neared $3/gallon in 2018. Barring any outstanding or unforeseen circumstances, AAA believes that there would have to be a major spike in demand (returning to normal peak driving season levels) and sustained crude oil prices for gasoline prices to reach that high this year.

Motorists can find current gas prices nationwide, statewide, and countywide at GasPrices.AAA.com.

We did partially fill our 1000 gallon fuel oil tank, and it had gone up about 20 cents since earlier this winter.  Once we can afford it, we will finish filling the tank.  It's not going to go down till someone restores faith in our government and our ability to govern ourselves,  We are now a liability to the world.  I am desperately afraid for our soldiers and law enforcement forces.

One piece of the article fails to mention is the impact speculators have on oil prices.

Everyone seems to forget when bush was in office we were paying 3.99 a gallon. The price of a barrel at 59 dollars we should only be paying 1.50 a gallon . It’s not dems it’s the oil men and now they’re blaming the freeze in the south
