    Angry Gasoline hit the roof here

    Yesterday gas was 2.98.9 per gallon, today the same gas station was 3.11.9 per gallon. Now that's quite a jump in less than 24 hours, wonder where it will stop?

    It probably won't ever stop, speculative investors are driving up the gasoline and oil commodity prices. There's actually been less demand in recent weeks for oil and gasoline and there's not a decrease in supply. You can see more about this by going to the Yahoo Finance page and clicking on the first video link.

    I'm about ready to sell my GT Spyder and get me an Echo.

    ugh we are now over £1 a litre in the UK. I commute 15 or so miles to my job so just get on with it. I'd prefer it if the price was lower though!

    Try $3.59 a gallon for diesel, and diesel takes less refining to make, it SHOULD BE CHEAPER THAN REGULAR GASOLINE!!!!

    When I bought my truck 14 years ago diesel was .79 a gallon.

    Needless to say Hilde (my truck) and I don't venture off the farm very often anymore

    In my travels yesterday (to run a few errands- got to make it sound exciting)- it was $2.99 locally- in the one town over it was $3.03 and in the other town $3.05. I heard that they are expecting oit to hit $3.27 by mid week- so I had to drop - $73 to get both of our vehicles filled.

    $2.92 last time I got some. I wish I could have afforded to get more, because it's on its way to $4, according to all reports. I think they do that to scare people into getting a full tank before it goes up.

    A big part of why I moved in Feb. was because of the commute I had---40 miles roundtrip to work each day. Now I have 5 miles roundtrip each day. I figured with gas prices probably never going to be reasonable again, eventually moving would almost pay for itself.

    $2.79 this morning. DH had been out of town, anxious to see what it is running in other areas.Doesn't seem to be bothering people. Still seeing boats, expect hunters to pile in from out of town.

    I have to put more gas in my car today. Last weekend we were at $3.02 and yesterday it was at $3.19 for the cheapest stuff!! I have to pump today, but I am only putting $20 in the tank. It's getting out of hand again!!
