    What’s the going rate for gas in your part of the world? Currently this is what I am seeing in the Houston area.

    87 octane – $2.09/gallon
    91 octane – $2.15/gallon
    93 octane – $2.22/gallon

    I filled up last Thursday and it cost me $29.00 to fill up the tank in the Mustang, which is the highest I have ever paid. The way my motor has been tuned I have no choice but to use 93 octane. When I filled up that day there was a Hummer H2 behind me and I can tell from the owner’s face he was dreading the final tally. He filled up on 87 octane and when everything was said and done he had to fork over $50.00.

    The sad thing was that he will probably have to fill up again in a couple of days.

    What is wrong with this picture?

    Regular $3.07
    Mid grade $3.27
    Premium $3.79

    Why is it that businesses in this country screw the consumer every opportunity they get.

    Yes, believe it or not the 3 grades of gasoline were only 10 cents apart. This was at a BP station in Beaver Dam.

    That is the way it used to me, you would pay a premium for diesel.

    Regular – $3.34
    Midgrade – $3.43
    Premium – $3.52
    Diesel – $3.39

    That is a small a difference as I have seen between the different grades.

    Regular – $2.34
    Midgrade – $2.43
    Premium – $2.52
    Diesel – $3.39

    I want oil to go down to the point where the fracking companies stay in business, the oil companies lose a good percentage of the profits they usually make, and Russia and other countries we usually buy oil from get nothing from us.

    With so many products influenced by the price of oil we should see a downward trend in the prices of many products.

    Oil companies cut production to drive the price up. Personally I think manipulating the price that way, with the profits they make, should be illegal.

    The same goes for food, healthcare, housing, banking..

    I agree, something which is a necessity should not be manipulated. I ran into that last year with propane where it went from approximately $1.20 to over $6.00 per gallon in a 3 month period. Companies have proven that they won’t do the right thing for the consumer, there needs to be some regulation.

    I won’t buy from a station where premium is more than 20 cents above regular. If people would frequent the stations who aren’t screwing the consumer they would all be in line.
