I pass my cheap local gas station going to and from work-- and yes I've seen it change several times in one afternoon -----
My husband truck takes diesel and the price for that can vary wide with in the same area-- over 30 cents
Who know why--- good question
Well Thomas I won't flame you because to some extent I agree... here in Lexington, KY every other car you see is an SUV with on passenger in it. I myself drive a Chevy S-10 which I feel by all means is effecient on gas and it carries everything I need. I realize we do need to be more conservative but personally Im gonna trip that little guy that is sneaking out there and changing the dang prices on me!!!! Then Im gonna poke his eye out!!!
Gas went up to 1.10Euro PER LITER for regular this weekend. That´s roughly 4$ per gallon. They´re predicting gas to go up by another .25Euro by Christmas and another .07Euro tax will be added on Jan. 1. That will make gas about 5$ a gallon by New Year´s.
Very few SUVs around here!
karen, who drives a little car that gets about 60 miles to the gallon.
Finally coming down here. Fron 1.56 last week at Crown to 1.49 today. There are 7 stations within 4 blocks and I LOOOOVE the competition. Citgo, Wilco, Exxon, Shell, 7-eleven, Texaco,and Crown. Only Texaco an Exxon have branded trucks delivering. All the rest have non-brand transports...soooo I'm thinkin',,,from the same company, perhaps? Possibly the Same product?? Inquiring minds want to know. I wonder how the gas companies would react if NO-ONE bought ANY gas on any given day? Say, the 1st Tue. of the month. No gas sales anywhere. I know this would not work simply because we (myself included) don't really seem to care how much big companies charge for their product. We gripe and grouse, but we still shell out, don't we? We let the cruise lines know when we don't like something THEY do, don't we? By not booking with them OR writing the corp.HQs. hmmmm..just a thought. O.K. Down from the soap-box.
When I was in college and working at a gas station/convenience store we bought gas from a local distributor. This distributor bought gas from Exxon, Shell, Texaco, etc. which was left over in their tanker trucks after making all their deliveries for the day. He might buy 200 gallons from Texaco, 400 gallons from Shell, etc. and he would put them in the same tank. He bought it at a discount because the gas companies wanted to empty their tanker trucks.
This mixture was the gas sold at the convenience store. Don't know if this is still going on since I was in college when gas was $0.29 per gallon.
