Gas Prices in the USA to rise 30 cents a gallon in the next 30 days

64 posts in this topic

On CNN Europe they just reported that the cost at the pump will rise 30 cents a gallon in the USA, in the next 30 days. What are you paying at the pump there now, for regular and premium? :scratchchin:

Around $3.05 a gallon for regular and $3.25 for "hi-test" as my parents call it here in my neck of the woods.

Am I worried about a thirty cent price hike? No, actually. Am I pissed off at the sound of it? You bet I am.

My :twocents: right there.

The report said a number of reasons, one I caught was fuel changeover to the spring mixture, there were a host of other reasons, but I was not really paying attention at the time.

Eh.... I went from paying $1000 per month for Car + Truck + Insurance back in January to paying $50 per month car + insurance starting in April...... I'm sure I can scrounge up a few extra bucks to feed the LT-1.

In all 24+ years of living, I have NEVER seen 85 octane gas. I bet it would make my engine(s) blow up. :P

Oh yeah, um... today I saw between 3.24-3.27 for regular and 3.45-3.49 for premium. (I use plus.)

$3.12 for regular, $3.42 for premium, and $3.92 for diesel at the station around the corner from my house. If you travel 5 minutes down the road in either direction its about 10 cents cheaper...

Yeah, here in Colorado, the octanes are 85, 87, and 91..... lower octanes because of the altitude.

About $4.20 a U.S. gallon. Get used to it.

Try six bucks a gallon and then maybe I'll be totally serious about buying, oh I don't know, a four-cylinder 3-Series coupe.

Sorry, a ForTwo ain't gonna wind up in this old kid's driveway. Maybe if gas cost fifteen bucks a gallon. -_-

I haven't ridden one since I was eleven years-old. But, you know, at least every bicycle I've ridden was rear-drive. :P

Maybe, maybe not. Our gas prices have typically run about 25% higher than yours for decades now, which is why perennial best sellers here have been the Caravan, Civic, J-cars and not the Impala, Tahoe, etc. People's habits and priorities do change. Each incremental increase of $1 a gallon will make a lot of people think. I only spend about $120 a month in fuel, but then I only drive about 600 miles a month. For many commuters, a $1 a gallon increase in price could wipe another $100 a month out of the family budget. Then it would hardly make sense to drive an Explorer to work when a Focus would do.

Our middle-class friends in Brazil do quite well with the small Fiats and Corsas. It is amazing how people's energy use changes when the costs are ratcheted upward. Even in luxury condos in Sao Paulo, interior lights are on motion- sensors and a/c is a rarity.

LETS ALL PANIC ABOUT GAS PRICES!!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Glad I already drive a compact & get 30-40mpg. :) Though driving the 'burban on occasion will hurt a little more if things go up. Oh well, we're still paying less than many other places.

Just more excuses to attempt to justify collosal greed.

OK if my math is correct, then that means I now have to average 23.8 MPG instead of 22 MPG to maintain my $/mi cost.

Premium is about $3.65-3.75 here; it seems to have gone down these past few days.

This article seems to mirror the CNN article you saw:

Tonight gas across the board was in the 3.40-3.50 for 87...so another 30 cents is going to be brutal.

Find a viable alternative, or let the entire America not drive for a week, or open the pants and take it in the cinnamon ring.
