$2.89 today for gas... around $3 for diesel. Right on for diesel prices. Gas is a little high for my taste, though.

Hey guys

Been paying $3.15 a gal. but cash prices are $3.09 at some stations.

Have been noticing that more coal trucks are starting to run and coal business is starting to pick up but time will tell.

The tool business is up one week then down alittle the next but pretty much the same, christmas time did have alittle to do with things.

I agree with you guys though, I too think gas prices are pretty much going to stay around $2.50-$3.50 from now on. They've seen and know that gas is one thing like food that we need, so there in control.

Hey austin, $2.89 that's still high but better then $3.00 plus. And to just think I live about 30 some miles from a gas refinery and some stations are charging more then other places thats 30 miles or even 100 miles further away, CRAZY JUST CRAZY!

Anyway guys I try to think on the positve side of things, in that things get worse before they get better and sure hope that this is the worse side. LOL!

Later fellers

Just weighing in with $4.91 per gallon (I had to convert litres to gallon) here in Australia. Diesel is more expensive again.

They are too high for me, thats why I run my old Merc on waste vege oil, running around on about $0.72 per gallon atm Smile

I've been paying around 3.65 for regular the latest times I've fueled up here in SD. This is at the cheaper places, ARCO etc. But its not too bad considering we pay about 7.50 per gallon of 91 octane (lowest grade there is) in Sweden...

I just read that real inflation was 12% in 2011 and is projected to be 15% in 2012. The Federal Reserve doesn't include fuel and food in its inflation calculations so they can tell everyone its 2%.

It's $5 here and they say it might go up as a $1 by summer. "Might" means definitely. We need an uprising.

They just said today that they might add another local tax to our gas as well as raise the provincial tax. They are also thinking about adding a "Sin Tax" to our gas and, adding tolls to roads. I figure that's about $8 a gallon in no time.

At $4 a gallon, I might be your neighbor in the near future.
My truck should be running premium gas, that's about $6 a gallon. I don't know anymore?
