What are the prices in your area? In this little town the station owners all get together,on Monday mornings and decide what they want to charge for gas,"this week"!:( it's currently at $4.19.7 today. I guess I don't "really" understand the pricing of oil? Oil price goes up per barrell=Gas goes up! Oil price per barrell,goes down=Gas goes up?:confused: Ron

We hit $4.19 last week and I noticed yesterday that a lot of stations were back down to $3.85. I’m no expert on oil pricing, but keep in mind that many times when they talk about the price per barrel going up or down, it’s the “futures” they are talking about. Not necessarily the current price.

Nah. They only talk about the "futures" for it going DOWN. It goes up immediately. I watch the Sheetz next to my work, and the price will go up but it's the same damn gas that was in the ground the day before. I could see if the price changed with each load when they fill the ground tanks, but it just goes up randomly.

the oil prices you need to look at is brent crude, sweet and otherwise. the prices the media reports on is usualy west texas, which has NO bearing on gas prices.

beyong that its a case of gouging while the stations will keep a prices artificially inflated before bringing it down once brent drops.

Regular here is $4.09, I use mostly deisel which is $4.25 right now. Our gas is always a dime more than all the counties around us. As someone who lives slightly better than paycheck to paycheck and dosen't make 6 digits a year, it hurts. I drive a round trip of 150 miles a day to make ends meet. Factor in fun gas and mowing a 2 acher lawn. My gas is a monthly bill that is more than my car payment.

$3.90 here in Vegas, American people are being ripped off by their own crooked government! What else is new? I continue to work more and more and even with the 3-4% raise per year I bring home less and less. After they passed the new health care my health insurance premium doubled $500.00 a month for a family and out of pocket expense doubled also.
